Price is right

I only stayed for one night so it did the trick. I liked the flat screen television. The hotel is near the airport but not near much else. The hotel receptionist couldn't find my reservation. The room was nice enough. The iron barely worked though.

Near airport, not near much else

The location is near G. Bush airport-- convenient for that but there is no restaurant nearby. The room was bearly acceptable. The carpet had a long black mark (grease?) on the right hand side of the bed -- did not seem clean. The door's deadbolt lock did not work and had to be shoved to close completely. Only stayed one night - could not have stayed longer.

Weekend in Houston

We were visting Houston to prepare for our upcoming move. The price was quite low so you have to expect to get what you paid for. Overall, the staff was very nice, they had a free computer to use which was helpful with our real estate searches, and the entire room was updated with modern decor which was pleasing. I wouldn't have rated it so low if it werent for the followoing issues: the sink was clogged, the grout job on the bathroom tile was messy - grout wasn't wiped off of the tile so there were splatters all over the floor and shower, the toilet seat didn't fit the bowl so the rim stuck out, the blankets were too thin so we had to use the loud heater during the night.

The basics done well

You get what you pay for, and maybe a little extra. Rooms were very clean and fairly updated. Wifi signal was weak and lost occasionally. Location isn't the greatest. Have to drive a couple miles to find a decent place to eat. Would stay there again if my work required a similar trip in the future.

Did the job but probably wouldn't stay there again.

Overall it was fine. The bed was clean and comfortable and there was a nice TV in the room, but there were a few hairs in the bathroom that were not mine, and multiple people told me to be very careful because the location was a particularly bad area.

Family medical visit

I had to take my daughter to a local medical facility and needed a motel close to the airport because our incoming flight got in after midnight and our outgoing flight departed at 5:57am. The shuttle service is a little iffy so be sure to leave plenty of time to get to the airport. The evening desk clerk was very friendly and helpful, which was great after a long day traveling. Unfortunately, our non-smoking room reeked of cigarettes and he was unable to get us a differrent room and we had to wait till the next morning to move. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. For the price, it was a decent place to stay for a few nights.
