Nice location but...

Its location is what makes it. But, if they would pay special attention to fading paint on walls, faulty bulbs, and more than a deadbolt on the door, it's rating would be higher. Their wifi is slow and can't handle anything other than Internet.

America's Best Value Inn in Houston, TX

This hotel was very centrally located with a clean room and friendly staff. Breakfast only included waffles and cereal. I would have preferred fresh fruit as an option. I was placed in a second floor room and the exterior steps to the room were somewhat steep. Otherwise, for the convenient location I was very pleased with this facility.

Okay for what I needed

I was playing in a National Seniors Games Tennis Tournament. The hotel was pretty much of a straight shot the downtown George Brown Convention Center. The person who managed the hotel was pretty knowledgeable, however, a younger fellow who also managed the front desk didn't have a clue. I asked him for two wake up calls I never got. I asked him about a good place to go eat, he gave me McDonald's and a pizza place, not my idea of good places to eat. The manager was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and well kept. The breakfast was misleading, only cereal and pancakes, no juice or other drinks. I generally stay at higher end hotels, you get what you pay for. I wouldn't stay there again.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Continental breakfast at the hotel is cold cereal and coffee. There is a Mcdonald and Whataburger like two blocks north bound of the hotel. I also went to Jacinto City to watch a movie at Tinsel town theater. Very nice. Only 10 minutes drive.

Nice owner

I had made a reservation for 3 nights on Orbitz. When I arrived in the parking lot the first night, I was so exhausted that I just put my head back and "rested my eyes for a minute" right there in my car. Next thing I knew, the owner was knocking on my car window at 6:00 a.m. When he realized the situation, he said that he would not charge me for the first night, although it was fully within his rights to do so. I didn't even ask him not to charge me. Not only that, but he let me check into my room 9 hours early and take a morning shower on my way to the office. I hesitated to write this because I don't want for other people to read this and then try to take advantage of him in the future by asking for exceptions to hotel policies. But I do want for his kindness to be rewarded with more customers and a good reputation for compassionate service.

The hotel is literally right across the street from the entrance to I-45, so it's very central to wherever you might want to go.
