I love the eclectic vibe this place has. Not fancy but fun and interesting. I love that it's different than your "average" hotel. I think the Medical Center hotels are all price gauging families, but the cleanliness and walking abilities to many places made it worth my night there.

Nice hotel that is in the process of finishing renovations. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Seeing as how we were there for the Super Bowl, location was amazing.

This is our 2nd stay, in September we had room 109, the toilet wouldn't flush properly and they gave us a plunger to unstop the toilet, which fixed the problem. This last stay on 10/31 we had 108, the room was good, but the bathroom still needs alot of work. The toilet sit rocked and need to be attended to. The bath tub had no plug to prevent the water from draining out. I can't take a shower. And the bath tub tile looked wet and needs to be replaced. For the amount of time we were in the room and cost it was durable.

First offthe clerk was friendly but my lord the lobby area smelled all weekend. Traveling with my family, they in the next room to find a dead cochroach on the floor, after complaining the front explained the cleaning staff didn't show that day!? Leaves me to wonder who cleaned my room? Though it did look clean, things were run down. Stained chairs, holes in shower stuffed with tape instead of a patch job. Just didn't have a comfortable feel for me to stay again. It was walking distance to nrg which was a plus and plenty of walking distance restaurants and grocery stores.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel is nothing fancy but nice for the area. Clean and comfortable. Short walk to the stadium and they have security in the parking lot watching over your vehicles. Breakfast was decent and hot. This will likely be my go to hotel for any future games.

The hotel was in a very conveniently close for me to attend a conference at Rice University. Salome at the front desk made every effort to make my stay as pleasant as possible. The hotel is super quiet and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is included in the price. It included such items as biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs, fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh cinnamon rolls, pancakes, different juices, and of course coffee. The hotel offers an hourly shuttle service to locations within a 3-mile radius.

Check in employee was fast and very helpful ! His service was impeccable . It probably took a total of 7-10 minutes .

We stayed close to NRG stadium and and it was a small walk. The front desk was very helpful and nice. Parking was good with enough room. The king size rooms are pretty big and come with a nice little couch. The area is good because of all the options of food that are close by the hotel. We arrived back late but Taco Cabana was still open right across from the street. Overall a great get away experience.

I stay here often and it is located in close proximity to the Medical Center with great shuttle service on the hour-great drivers!! Clean, comfortable rooms and free breakfast. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a place to stay.

This hotel was the right location for our needs. It took less than 10 minutes to reach the hospital we were visiting. The staff were very professional and helpful and it was nice to able to get a good breakfast instead of having to look for place to eat. We look forward to booking at this hotel on our next trip to Houston.

Property was a perfect location for our needs, although exit was a problem due to traffic and one way street. Had to go around the block to go east.

I was in the area on business & this is where I stay when visiting the medical center. It's clean, close enough to Rice Village for something to do, and the price is reasonable. I would recommend this hotel for business & leisure travelers. Always consistent.

The staff was good; the breakfast was very complete

Looking for a new home for my daughter. Wanted the convenience of the area. Restaurants being close was a big plus! There was mold growing on the corner in the bathroom. We were located beside the fitness center and a guest blasted the tv at 5 in the morning-very frustrating! Loved [...]-he was the BEST!! And the breakfast and the waitress/cook in the room was WONDERFUL!!

The hotel was in a great location, minutes from Texas Medical Center and right next to Reliant Center. The hotel was an excellent value for the quality.

We were there to see a doctor at the medical center. Halls and room was not very clean. Air conditioner kept us awake all night. Bad directions from desk when leaving the hotel for the doctor's office.

We had a great trip. The shuttle did not run on weekend, but we made the walk back from Reliant ok. The hotel and staff was nice. It was clean and all amentities were useful.

This was the first time I reserved an ADA room with a hotel online, and got that room when I got there. NO room changes or upcharges happened as I checked in. The hotel is close to downtown Houston, a few miles from the Hospitals, and across the street from Relient Stadium. It is also only 20 minutes from NASA and Kema Boardwalk. Great hotel for a good price.

Limited Shuttle Service that only ran to Medical Center Park during certain times during the week and did not run at all on the Weekend.

It was a good hotel. It was close to the football satduim which is where we were going. Everyone was friednly and very courtious.
