Cig. holes in blankets, dirty sheets, person working there kept calling room, made me so uncomfortable i left hotel scared he was going to come to my room after repeadly calling (I'm a young woman and felt that my wellbeing was at risk) and stayed w a friend. Filthy gross bedding. Worst experience I ever had. Not to mention there's bullet proof glass at the check in desk... never stay here!!!

First of all, the price we paid was way too high for this hotel and it's service. I have stayed at the holiday inn and paid less than what I paid for this hotel. This hotel should not charge more than 60 dollars for the room on the weekends. The beds were dirty and blankets were not washed. Our room did not have any soap or shampoos either. I had to go down stairs to get those things and the the guy at the front desk looked at me like I couldn't have any... Then in the morning the breakfast...there was no butter or cream cheese or anything to spread on your toast. I understand that it's not suppose to be a huge breakfast but at least have something more than fruit loops...Finally, the location is away from all attractions too. Overall this was not worth the 91 dollars I paid. When for the same price I could have stairs at the Hilton or something better.

Not in the best part of town but close to the aorport.

This place was nothing fancy, but it was a nice, basic motel. The room was big and clean, the furniture was comfortable. It had a nice shower. The fridge and microwave were a nice touch. It was right by hobby airport, and really convienient to where I got my rental car. Easy driving access to the highway, shopping and dining. There is a Dennys within a reasonable walk. Breakfast was lacking, white bread to make toast, packaged little pastries and cold cereal. Something with protein, like yogurt cups, would have been nice. I missed on the website that the internet access was wired, not wireless, and didn't bring a cord. Wireless would have been nice, but it was my bad for not paying attention. Overall, if I was looking for a clean, inexpensive room, I would stay here again. And I would bring a cord.

It was nice quiet hotel. Very close to the freeway. Easy access.

needs some upgrading and doesn't offer near the amenities of most nearby hotels.

room was very clean and presentable. no issues to speak of. would definitely recommend to others.

I was only there to sleep, shower and be on my way. The bathroom was nicer than Hampton or holiday inn.

I have nothing here to say.

well i always have a good experience at this hotel i have no really big issues with them ever the only thing was i couldnt watch my dvds like i wanted to and some of the channels didnt work so it was a little bit boring in there but other than that it was good!!!

simple clean room to hide for a weekend. my wife and I had a quiet good time here. simple but comfortable for the price. Could do with a bottle of water in the fridge.

LaQuinta-IAH in Houston: Called direct @appx 6:30pm and they graciously have ONE suite for #99/nt. I get there within 2 hrs. I tell the clerk that I need a warm quiet bed for ONE night because I am leaving for an early flight. She puts me in a very nice, clean suite on the side that faces the FREEWAY. They must be really booked. As I look outside my window, which has a bright light post glaring through it (won't need a nightlight), I see only TWO cars parked on my side of the building. I finally get to sleep despite the very LOUD traffic noise. Awake a few times during the night (t0 be expected in "strange places"), I wake up at 5am for my 8:45 flight. Find that I only have shampoo, no lotion, no soap. I don't want to ask the front desk to bring anything up, so I make do with the shampoo as a shower gel. Honestly, were they SO booked that I HAD to be placed on the freeway side of the hotel; not like it's a plane that needs to have its weight balanced, right? Does the Housekeeper not make rounds to make sure the rooms are REALLY ready?Have to admit that [...]was very helpful at the front desk, though. I asked about directions to the rental car return and he was right on the money. Thanks for letting me vent.

It was better than I expected because I was looking for the lowest price. The room was actually well renovated and updated. The beds were comfortable. There was only the minimal TV channels, but it worked well and was easy to learn the remote. The bathroom was somewhat plain, but the shower worked very well. There was plenty of towels and the soap was not too drying to my skin. Parking was very easy and I got to my meetings on-time because of the great location. The staff was kind.

At first I was a little skeptical that this hotel could offer more than a good night's rest. I was wonderfully surprised when [...], the manager, gave helpful instructions, guiding me to the hotel, and gave no problem whatsoever with delayed check-in. The staff was particularly friendly, provided additional towels after swimming, and were always polite. We visited Hobby Airport viewing area, ate pizza from Dominoes, and prepared to visit JSC today. The pool, while small, is wonderfully clean. The continental breakfast was very good, including waffles!I will definitely return to this hotel when I am traveling on business and pleasure. While the rooms are simple, they are clean and comfortable.The price is definitely right!

I was visiting relatives and using the local ataractions.

THIS WAS MY SECOND TIME AT THIS LOCATION I HAD NO COMPLAINTS EITHER TIME AROUND....I PLAN ON RETURNING NEXT MONTH

This Hotel was only 5 minutes from the airport, which was @ $5.00 by cab. I arrived late on a business trip (@1:30 am), and it was great to be out of baggage claim and in a comfortable bed in 15 minutes! The hotel was clean and comfortable. The price was unbelievable, and it included a continental breakfast. Overall, this was a great deal that exceeded my expectations.

In spite of being in the middle of Airport Blvd., this small motel was quiet and restful. [...] greeted me himself. I plan to go there again.

I HAD AN OVERALL GREAT EXPERIENCE AT THE HOTEL! THE STAFF WAS FRIENDLY I HAD A PROBLEM WITH MY AIR CONDITIONER BEING TOO LOUD, AND THE STAFF MOVED ME TO ANOTHER ROOM WITH NO PROBLEM. AFTER THAT I HAD NO OTHER COMPLAINTS!!!!
