We found this NEW hotel on price line. It is so new, it has no reviews yet. We were scared! But it was a great find! The room is huge! Two queen beds, a dresser, a desk with a comfy chair. Plenty of room for luggage and IT WON'T GET IN THE WAY! Now the perks! 1. FLAT SCREEN 42"+TV...

Family run hotel located adjacent to one of Houston's major freeways. The rooms are musty, the beds hard and uncomfortable, and the freeway noise forced me to turn the volume of my TV to hear it. Often a trucks horn would wake me from my sleep in the middle of the night. The TV are older models with not so...

We stayed here because we had an early flight the next day. The hotel doesn't have inside corridors, so taking the luggage up the stairs was difficult and heavy. This hotel is located next to a gas station. The room was small but it had a fridge, which was good. The bathroom was small and the tub didn't look clean....

Let me first start off by saying- It was Spring Break and this was the only hotel around with availability (I now know why). We checked into our hotel late, 9:30 and it took my husband 20 minutes inside before he came back to the car. We get to our room and there was one bed made up and the...

After checking into the Hotel and getting unpacked i went out to scout the area, have dinner and finish paperwork. When I climbed into the bed at 11:00 pm, I found the stink of body odor on the pillowcases and sheets were terrible. I had to sleep on bath towels. When I went to the office to complain to Mr...

Yellow water coming out of the sinks. Terrible smell. Burned out light bulbs. Broken ac in the first room. Close enough to the airport jetway to have the planes rumble the room. Need I say more?

The place was dirty and the staff was very rude. They said it was renovated but I did not think so. The towels were dirty as well as the sheets. I certainly would not recommend this place to any one. The amount of money spent is not worth the stay. There are other better priced hotels right there for a...

The room was clean with new carpet, paint, furniture, linens, etc... But I arrived to a room that must have been 130 degrees at 8pm, it was unbearable. I had to turn on the AC and leave because the room was so hot, and it took several hours for it to cool. The paint/texture on the shower ceiling was pealing,...

Left our car at the hotel while on vacation. Were taken to the airport for an early flight. Returned after 10 p.m., called the hotel and we were picked up within 10 minutes. The rooms are newly redone and the work seems to be of high quality. B/c this is an older motel, the rooms are huge. And though close...
