Convenient place to stay near IAH

The staff were very accommodating and helpful, letting us into the room before check-in time and giving us free toiletries that my wife had forgotten. Room was spacious and pleasant, with comfortable beds and a full-size ironing board and iron in the room. The location was very convenient, just a couple miles off JFK (main road into airport) and easy access.

Business trip

The hotel room is very clean, the bed is extremely comfortable, and the staff is very friendly. I would like to stay here again once I have another chance to get back in Houston. Thank you Howard Johnson for making me feel at home in Houston, TX.

Hojo Houston IAH

Newer hotel. Make sure to call when you land so they can send out the shuttle to get you. Room was clean with a microwave and a mini fridge. Breakfast was your normal hotel breakfast. Not in the greatest part of town, lots of welding shops, gas stations, etc... Close to Houston Parkway and the airport. Rent a car if you're staying here, not a whole lot of taxis or public transit in the area.

Interesting

Randomness. Was in the middle of nowhere, but was next to a gas station so convenient yes, but still nothing else was around. Its a room, there was a washcloth left in my shower curtain...they stole my hand soap and replaced it even though I only used it once....waste and gave me new shampoo and conditioner even though i was clearly using the first. Bed was nice, the staff were nice. Can't complain about too much it was a nice place to sleep.

It's ok. Good value

It's located close to the airport, about 5-6 miles away. By Houston standards, that's like inside the airport. There's not much around the hotel except a small convenience store and a gas station. Every nearby food joint was closed by the time I reached at 9 pm. Fairly safe (it seems), but for the fact that it feels like in the middle of nowhere. It has two floors, like a typical econolodge or day's inn setting, and a small parking lot. Ground floor has smoking rooms and upper floor has non-smoking. Amenities are alright, staff decent. Nothing to write home about. Couple of minor complaints like not having an airport shuttle operating between 12 am and 5 am. If you have an early morning flight, you are forced to keep your rental car or call a cab a day earlier.

There is a Chilis on Sam Houston Parkway at the crossing of Wilson Road that is open after 10 pm. And it's good, and can be crowded.

Great Hotel Stay

This hotel was great and the staff were very helpful and courteous. However, [...]miscalculated the distance from the hotel and the location that I needed to be for a conference. The hotel staff kept the room clean and it is in a quiet location so the entire stay was very comfortable!! I would definitely recommend any travelers to stay in this hotel while in Houston.
