Stayed here one night on our way to Texas. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed here again on our way home! The staff was so very friendly! 5:30 kickback and breakfast was good both times! Our dog was made to feel welcomed also.

but poor housekeeping. Stayed at this hotel for leisure for a week. Enjoyed the popcorn and coke machine late afternoon. Meals were good, the two free drinks were served in small cups. Enjoyed the indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub. This is a convenient location to downtown area, the Summit, and Galleria. However, the only reason I won't stay here again is the lack of housekeeping. It appears that if were out of the room early in the morning you're room would be cleaned. However, if you had the do not disturn sign on your door (as in my case) and left the room at 10:00, you could forget housekeeping. One afternoon when I returned to the room (I had called complaining for housekeeping services; 30 min after waiting still no service so went and got clean towels. The next evening I asked for housekeeping again and after getting tired of waiting I called to compain. Management did offer a free night for the inconvenience. Four nights at this hotel and no housekeeping. Won't be back.

I enjoyed the peace and quite. The rooms were super clean. Free long distance calls, Internet and food. I prepaid for my room online with hotwire.com and I did not have to swipe my card again for incidentals. This was my first experience of not having to show a credit card upon checking in....Super!!!

Front Desk clerks were very friendly and helpful checking in and checking out of hotel. The breakfast was good. I enjoyed the muffins, yogurt, waffles, it was pretty healthy for breakfast. The room was very nice and so was the bathroom. We were satisfied and would enjoy staying there again.

Room Tip: Just call in advance

What we noticed most was the friendly attitudes staff seemed to have, hopefully they actually enjoy their jobs and are paid well for it. Our room was a one bedroom suite, king bed, full bath with jacuzzi tub and shower, living area, all very nice. Our 3 year old slept on the couch bed which suited her just fine, the king bed in the bedroom was alright, with a door to separate the two rooms which was nice to have. The jacuzzi tub was disappointing, very weak jets and not in the right place where you would normally lay. But overall, bathroom seemed clean. Shower had complimentary soap and shampoo in dispensers so as not to waste little bottles of stuff. Nice, neutral decor that didn't scream dirty! The mini fridge was helpful to store our items from the cooler for the night. We only stayed one night as we were just passing through. When we arrived, plenty of people were taking advantage of the 5:30 kickback dinner in the lobby area though we opted to eat out. The breakfast was very impressive with lots of options and waffles that didn't actually taste like cardboard like some other hotel waffles. Very nice fuel up for the rest of our trip. What appeared to be a manager also was making rounds making sure everyone was enjoying everything and even cleaning up dishes himself! Nice that it was outside the city and not too far off the interstate as well.

Front Desk Agent was very courteous.Room comfort was OK.Needs a most modern stylish upgraded to be up to the Game with other Hotels like Hyatt Place or Holiday Inn's. Breakfast was junk and nothing healthy all sugary .

My husband and I have been staying at this Drury Inn & Suites for several years now on the way to the beach. We always request a 1st floor room due to having our pet with us. Usually not a problem to get reserving well in advance. Everything is provided in this motel, Wi-Fi in each room, a big screen TV, a good breakfast every morning, has all anyone could want to eat. Dinner every night, different menu every night, they provide 3 free alcoholic drinks. This location is great, right off of Interstate 65, and convenient to many restaurants and not too far from the Brookwood Village shops. Rooms are clean, not really big, unless a suite, but when you get in late, you are just needing a place to sleep. Drury has a nice fitness room and swimming pool. I highly recommend this Inn.
