Was given a room, #116, on the first night I couldnt get to sleep because I smelled weed coming into my room from outside. 4 minutes someone came up to my door asking me if I wanted to buy any. I called the office and they did nothing. The next night was the same thing but this time I had an asthma attack from it all and people were outside of my room yelling at eachother! If they have drug issues here and refuse to do anything what do they think of their clients who arent doing that crap? I was really disrespected and sneered at. There should be a half star rating for this place. Its disgusting and so are the staff.

The buildings are old and ugly and in need of a paint job – one that isn’t some shade of mustard yellow. My room was ok, not perfect but ok for the class of hotel. The room had a microwave and refrigerator but I didn’t use either. The counter area next to the sink had plenty of room for my belongings. There was a plug in near the bed but not right next to the nightstand or on a lamp. With a 6’ cord, I was able to charge my phone and put it on the nightstand. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were too thin for my preference. The A/C was cold enough for my needs. The pool area looks usable and decent however I didn’t use the pool. There are rooms that surround the pool so that might be desirable if you have kids that will swim. When I checked in the FDC said the internet was down but they were working on it. When I got back to my room that evening it was up and running. The internet name I was using was named “guest”, if that is the Econo Lodge’s, I thought it was fast and I was happy with the speed. The breakfast area was clean but there was only dry cereal, toast and a danish. There was a waffle maker but no batter (not that I would have had one anyway). I attempted to eat a bowl of cereal but it was stale so I threw it away. There is an on demand coffee dispenser that had regular coffee but no decaffeinated. So for as little as I paid, I was ok with the stay.

stayed here due to storms, I didn't expect much due to it's former reputation. was surprised to find it has been cleaned up, room was clean bed was average. shower was good for pro basketball players with the adjustable shower head near the ceiling and hard to reach, the water handle came off while adjusting the temp. the curtain liner was ripped and a hole in the wall by the tub. however it looks as if they are trying to improve, will check back in at the next storm.

We booked this hotel with points while visiting family in town for a birthday party. It is not elegant, but it suited our purposes. It was clean, convenient, and very reasonable points. The breakfast included egg patties, gravy, cereal, pastries, waffles, coffee, and apple juice. The orange juice did not work.

I would say from the mixed reviews on here and my own personal experiences, it almost depends on what room your in. I was in one facing chevron and for $79 i honestly expected better quality. The walls had holes behind switches that were larger than the switch cover, the ceiling appeared have been leaking and had dripped on the table leaving residue. Half of the lights in the room didnt work. The tv quality was poor. The phone would randomly ring and when answered wouldnt have anyone on it. When it was getting cold i tried to turn on the heater and it didnt come on. Honestly, if you can afford $100. Go to the hotel next to ihop. I will never use this hotel again and i am very surprised that choice hotels would allow such run down locations to exist.

When I pulled in I knew I made a mistake but went into the lobby and it was very clean and nice so I decided to give it a chance. The rooms look nothing like the pictures. They are not outdated, they are downright nasty. And at one end of the parking lot a few swarthy looking gentleman were hanging out all night. Lots of I 45 noise as well. I wouldn't recommend it for families or single women.

Stayed here for one night, staff friendly, rooms a bit scruffy but clean, however good value and location. A few local food places around but bought food from local walmart and dined in the room. A final note this hotel is very near to the freeway so if you are a light sleeper dont stay here.

We check in and come to find my daughter finds a dirty syringe covered in lubricant my boyfriend and I were outside when this happened my daughter comes out side and shows us what she has I go ahead and soap here all down to hopefully mk sure nothing gets in her system. Call hotel and they come down the general manager comes down and tells me this happens all the time really I guess your hotel should have bio hazard signs up for the customers. So talk to the owner after a period of time he has me go trough his insurance company to try to make this as simple as possible for everyone well guess what they tell me the hotel is not liable or negligent for what happened to my daughter that came from the insurance company . We have had her tested nothing came up yet which was expected to show she had nothing to begin with have to have her tested at 3mths and 6mths 1yr and 2yr. We also found 7 more syringes under our mattress u could tell our room was not biohazard free. please put up signs next time so we can be aware of what is going on. Everyone pray for my daughter and our family that nothing happens to her. Please be advised when going into a hotel room bring your FBI kit with you to check over the room bf u stay there.

We booked this hotel for $59....too much IMO. While the lobby was updated, the rooms were not. The bathroom door was all beat up...it felt pretty gross. Bed linens were pretty outdated. We had limited options as we went to a concert during a busy weekend in the Woodlands and didn't book ahead of time. If you need a place to stay, it'll work. But the outside of building and interior is pretty dated. Bleck.

i am a full time traveler ..staying at hotels with group business is my profession..at this property all is good with some staff while others let you know you are not trusted ..you can't ask for extra chair as they want a deposit and will tell you that it's because you may damage or steal it. We indicated that we could break or steal anything in room so why would we steal an extra chair or towel? This is a hotel that wants groups and your cash but beware of the mean ones at the front desk. The group person will say "you people only get limited things" You People Is what she called us! Amazing how they can take your money and disrespect us all at the same time...like previous reviews ...carpet..where your socks...they are making progress in areas but and the rate is good but the " you people" stuff has to go...will update after " my type people " check out.
