Great for less money

It was a great experience. We stayed a night and had to leave 4am in the morning. We had free shuttle service to the airport and they hold our big and heavy luggages until we leave. It's newly remodelled. I cannot believe the price for this quality.

Good hotel near the airport

i needed to stay overnight to catch a flight early in the morning. The attention was great, the hotel shutle picked me up at the airport shortly after my call and took me back for the flight at 5:00 am sharp. The room was clean and it had wi-fi. The hotel is a 10 minutes drive from the airport, has a couple of convenient stores at a walking distance and the price is right; very good overall value. Thanks to the night shift manager for his kind attention

comfy beds

the beds were very comfortable. I was very surprised that there was no pool considering this was a newer hotel. Becareful of the hot water, you don't have to wait for it. easy to get to off the beltway.

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.

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.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

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.

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.
