Nice home away from home

I spent three nights at the hotel and it really felt like my home away from home. I was visiting my son who is a graduate student doing an internship in Houston. It was nice to have a computer room handy. I enjoyed the view out my window. Everything was clean and neat, and I slept very well. I'd be happy to return.

Will stay again!

We paid a reasonable price to stay here for a week. Good location to access different places. A minute to freeway. Many thanks to receptionist Shaila who was very nice and helpful. We enjoyed our quiet and clean room with satisfaction. Will stay again!
