Astros trip

Would recommend Tue, Jul 21, 2015
The hotel stay was nice. The staff was great and the in hotel restaurant was excellent. My only complaint is the quality of the bedding. It was a little hard and the sheets were very tough. Other than that it was a great experience. Fairly close to downtown Houston!

ok for its purpose

Would recommend Wed, May 20, 2015
It is very close to where we needed to be and is a nice facility. Some traffic noise, not bad, but the 3am Saturday night half hour party in the hall was an annoyance. Maid kinda forgot to clean the room day two after notifying them of leaving, as requested. I'll stay there again and hope the more or less minor annoyances don't recur.

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 1, 2014
The room was clean & big, for starters we where in town for the LSU football game, we wanted to sit in the bar and watch college football while waiting to depart, lounge didn't open till 4pm.and closed at 11pm on a big football weekend.There were only 2 elevators working and the staff was using those also. they required an extra $50.00 payment to cover cost of parking & phone. I will never stay there again.

We love this place

Would recommend Mon, May 5, 2014
I have stayed here a few times over the last few years when we travel to houston and we always enjoy our stay there. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. Great shower, bathroom, fridge, microwave, coffemaker. The bar, at least on the Saturday night we were there, was quite lively. The value for the money is extraordinary. We are going back again for sure.

Very affordable hotel only 10 minutes away from downtown

Would recommend Mon, Jan 20, 2014
This hotel was a great value. Self parking was only $9. Rooms were large and clean. The sheets were coarse. Location was right by the interstate so restaurants weren't difficult to find. Nothing really close by walking standards though. Toyota Center was only 10-15 minutes away.

Money saver

Short 10-15 drive to Toyota Center even in rush hour.

Time to find a new hotel in the area

Would not recommend Sun, Sep 22, 2013
Ive stayed here many times and something is always wrong. the last two visits the elevator from the ground floor to the various garage levels was not working. you have to bring your bags to the lobby and then carry them up the stairs to your floor. the hot water was luke warm at best and the tub practially fills up while showering. ill be looking for a new hotel in the area. this is definately NOT a crown plaza caliber property
