We stayed at this B&B because we were doing a college visit and I wanted my daughter to experience the fun that I've had over the years with a B&B. I think this house is really more of an Annex to the Star of Texas on the next block. We checked in late, so there was a note left for us to get to our room. We also had another note saying breakfast would be served at the Star of Texs since there weren't very many of us. I'm glad it wasn't raining. Coffee was available downstairs in the kitchen. The cook was the only person we met while there except for 2 other guests at breakfast. Breakfast was just ok and served buffet style. A nice texas cockroach joined us along the baseboard. I did let the cook know. That was bad for my daughter, but I know from experience living in Houston, that they appear occassionally. Hopefully, they spray regularly and that was an isolated case. My biggest issue was with the cooling system. Room #9 has one small vent which blows out cold air, but it's not nearly enough as it is positioned in the ceiling by the door. I am cold natured, so I am rarely too hot. About 1:00 am, we were both miserable and I got up to check my options. I found 1 table fan that I positioned right up next to the bed. The vent was wide open. That allowed us to get back to sleep at least, but was still not comfortable. There is a huge construction project going on across the street for new apartments. They start at 7 am. I don't see that being complete any tiome soon. This was my least favorite B&B so far in 20 years. The positives would be that the parking was nice. Parking was really a problem in the area. We didn't have any nighttime noises this time of year since school hadn't started. The beds were comfortable which is always important.
