Average Clean...

The room is pretty spacious. It's a family owned hotel so it's well maintenance and clean except I saw some ants in the bathroom on the first day of morning...but the staff came to deal with it immediately. However, my room phone doesn't work and my coffee maker is broken too.

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.

So so

Nothing to do near there. We didn't have a car. They do not have airport pickup until after 5p.m. Room was nice but a little noisy. Old food was left in microwave which stank. No swimming pool. Very boring. Four miles from airport. Had to take metro transit to get anywhere. A less expensive motel would have been better. No one seemed to speak English. Asked for king, got two double beds.

Good Price bad management attitude

The hotel was clean but that is all it had. The management at the front desk had the attitude you do not want when you are away from home. Some lights in the room did not work. Shower tub was clogged and management was no help. I felt like the management wanted my money but not me in their hotel. Although the place was clean, i would not recommend anyone staying there. i am sure you can find other place to stay for the same cost with a welcoming attitude from the front desk staff.

problematic

The hotel was quiet and restful but that was it. The carpet and blankets appreared dirty. We contantly battled small ants in the bathroom. The A/C seemed to work right at times, other times the room was stuffy. The breakfast is nothing more than packaged sweet rolls and cereal, not interesting. For us the worst offense was that the internet would never work correctly. We called the office and they would do something with the router and it worked for a few minutes, but never long and many times in the middle of something it would drop you off. We must have called the office ten times or more and went down there twice. I would not visit here again. Breakfast and the internet were important to us and niether one was acceptable.
