Stayed four nights while on business in Houston. Check in was smooth. Large and light lobby. Free parking just outside the front entrance. Room was large, with refriferator and microwave oven. No minibar, but they sell drinks and snack in the lobby, inexpensive compared to usual hotel prices. The bathroom was very nice and modern, the soap and shampoo of the cheap sort, so good, so bring your own if you are picky... Free wi-fi, worked excellent! Everything was clean.
Had breakfast in the hotel restaurant, either you can order from a meny or go for the buffet. Not much to choose from at the buffet, but food was good and reasonably priced. The waiter was very friendly. At night you could have dinner or just a beer in the restaurant, it had a sort of diner/sportsbar feel to it.
There is a small gym, only one treadmill, but no one else there at 6 a.m, so no problem! small, indoor pool.
This is not a hotel you would stay at while on vacation, only if you have business or other reasons to spend some nights in Houston, or if you are just passing by and needs a place to sleep. You will not get anywhere in Houston without a car, however the hotel did have a shuttle that would take hotel guests to their office if nearby. There were some small restaurants and shops just outside the hotel, but if you want to do some serious shopping, Memorial City Mall is excellent, and not far, i would guess 10-15 minute drive, depending on traffic.
All in all, can recommend this hotel if you need somewhere to stay in this area of Houston, and the price was I got was very good, around USD 100 plus tax.
