The rooms are a little small for my taste, and is currently being under some construction (but they keep this area closed). The price is really good, and breakfast is ok. I would definitely will stay here... More

My niece is taking chemotherapy. This hotel is very close to MD Anderson. It gives a discount to patients and provides free shuttle service. Rooms are very clean and it's newly remodeled. Free breakfast is provided.

The hotel is run down and has a very peculiar smell, not pleasant at all. One of the light switches in the bathroom did not work.
