Sleep 'N Go Hotel Houston Medical Center2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
OK...hotel was clean and safe and convenient to Med Ctr and MDA; room was spacious. That gets them the three...almost a two, though. But this place is weird, weird, weird. Not Bates Motel weird...no apparent homicidal psychos running around...but just plain ODD. Kind of a renovated warehouse, '80's-Sears-Decor, over-signnaged, missing-staff kind of weird. Front desk didn't open until 9:30 (whatever happened to the night auditor? Front Desks are supposed to be open ALL THE TIME! That's why it's called THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY!) There's a "Breakfast Room" but we realized there would be no breakfast IF THERE WAS NO ONE THERE BEFORE 9:30! $15 fee for "lost keys;" now mind you, these are just cheezy old mag-stripe card keys WHICH WERE PAID FOR BY LOCAL DOMINO'S PIZZA because their ad is on the back! Sat TV was a mess...half the stations had inaudible audio due to static. Beds had plastic (HARD plastic...kinda like people cover their sofas with!) mattress pads. Front Desk looks like a Guard Station at The Big House. Check it out...there are photos in the listing and at their site. The person we interacted with at the Front Desk was very friendly, as she peeked over the high counter at the Guard Station/Front Desk. Don't pay over $90/nite for this place. There is a nice Hampton Suites with free Happy Hours and Breakfasts just about 4 blocks away on Old Spanish Trail which is competitively priced....and it has a Luby's Cafeteria right next door if you have diverse appetites or don't want to drive all over looking for chow.
First of all, this stay was gifted to us so I can't speak to room rates, but the published prices I've read would be too much. Sure it's within walking distance of the Medical Center and Metro that can connect you to most of the city. The rooms were clean and housekeeping seemed very contentious. That's where the good ends. It sounds cliche but there was a definite Bates Motel feel. We stayed 7 nights and for 6 nights we were the ONLY guests in the 3 story structure. The front desk is only manned for certain hours and not even as often as the signs indicates. And that's another thing...they must have a deal with the guy who makes little signs there are more than a dozen posted in every room. The kitchenette is workable, but the 2 burner stovetop had been closed up. The outlet near the kitchenette didn't work. We had to move the coffee pot to the bathroom counter. The pool is incredibly small. And we had to have it unlocked. But as mentioned above staff is hard to find that that an issue. There was no one at the front desk desk for us to officially check out. We never got a final bill to be sure we weren't charged any additional feesz I'll post some pics for you to see some of whah I've mentioned.
This motel is clean, fresh and the reception staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Great security in a clean part of town. Had a swim in the pool. Very nice area for families. Close to medical facilities if that's what you need. Good central point for us to sightsee as we had a rental car.
I will start by saying the Lexington was clean and spacious. Other than those two things, it goes strictly downhill! First and foremost it was advertised that this hotel had a shuttle to medical center facilities and nearby stores, etc. - NOT - there was no shuttle at all. Thank heaven for Uber or we would have had great difficulty getting back and forth to MD Anderson Cancer Center. Other reviewers have talked about the abundance of reminder signs, the lack of hours of front desk operation - all of which I heartedly agree with. Since the rodeo and cattle show were in town, this place had the gall to charge $200 a night ---- not worth $50. Never again will this place get our business when we are there for medical reasons if the Marriott Medical Center is available!!!!!!!
I don't know what the good reviews are all about. This place is like a scene from the Shining. The place is totally creepy. No one works there. No one is at the front desk, no one can be found at all. Not even to clean rooms or answer a phone call. There was only one other car in the parking lot all night. We found a 'driver' of the hotel limo who let us into our rooms using 'the house key', but we couldn't get our room keys. Each room has windows that opens up to a hallway - and signs in the hallway that say be careful walking, slippery when wet... as if the hallways is outside! It's not. Like everything else at this place, it's a sort of game, a ruse, a facade of a real hotel. There was a breakfast room that no one even turned on the lights to. A pot of cold coffee that was there when we came in - and was still there when we left. I can't believe we survived the experience. Grateful there was no ax murderers. Totally terrifying place.
Upon entering our 2-queen room, my husband and I were impressed by the size and number of amenities. However, when he went into the bathroom as I went to search for the ice machine, we met up again having come to the same conclusion: it felt like the setting of an Alfred Hitchcock film. Eerily quiet throughout, the decor was tacky and the walls posted with dire warnings about keeping your kids in line, remaining quiet, and being charged $15 for lost room key. Not a reassuring atmosphere for someone about to undergo a medical procedure. If you just have to stay close to the medical center, it will probably be fine, but look elsewhere if you want something modern and cheerful.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights to be near M D Anderson Hospital in August 2014. We lived in Houston for over 60 years, but recently retired and moved to a city 4 hours drive away. This was our first stay at the Lexington. First impression when arriving in the driveway was not all that positive, BUT I'm happy I gave it a chance. The location is not the most desirable if you are wanting to get out and walk around the area. The room was on the ground floor, 2 queen beds, a kitchenette with a large refrigerator, 2 burner stove, coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven, dishes, dining table that seats 4, etc. Flat screen TV and a sound system/dock for iPods provide entertainment possibilities. The room was clean, the staff very friendly. They provide a free shuttle to the medical center, nearby grocery store and a Target store. Free unsecure internet, minimal continental breakfast. If you are looking for a hotel for an extended stay that won't bankrupt you, this place fits the bill. We will be returning to Houston in the future for medical visits and will certainly stay here if there is a room available.
As a current Rice University undergrad, this hotel has become a second home to me. The location is perfect and the staff is always friendly. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a long or short stay in town.
This hotel is located on a small side street in the medical center area with close proximity to Reliant Stadium. Only Luby's is within walking distance as far as restaurants go. The room was clean. The television was small. The plastic cable guide stuck to the top of the TV did not correspond to any channels. The in room a/c unit would never cool down cold enough. Thank goodness for the fan in the room . The front desk is completely closed off by glass. I am assuming this is not the best part of town. The drive up entrance to the hotel is very small it makes it a bit of a challenge to stop and unload. Overall it is a decent basic hotel. The entrance to the parking lot with key card, and to use the elevator is a bit of a pain, but understood if this is a high crime area. This was not an extended stay for me, I may consider the Hampton Inn for short stays
Hotels in Houston are expensive and frequently booked up so I tried the Lexington in an attempt to save some money. This property is for the traveler looking for an extended stay particularly if the need is to be close to one of the many medical centers. It is not designed for the one night business traveler. The rooms are large and have almost a full kitchen with a large fridge, microwave, dishes, classes cutlery and a dishwasher. The rooms decor was okay and the level of cleanliness seemed high. The parking situation was different as it was directly across the street in a locked and well lit lot. Entering always required a key card even to walk to your car but the added security was a plus. The complimentary breakfast "forget about it" and seek another option. Also, the front desk wasn't manned until after 9:00 a.m. So if you need an extended stay then the Lexington may be a good choice. For a one night stay I recommend considering options.
