The hotel employers are very friendly and work hard to please the guest. We woke up to no hot water, when I called the front desk within 5 minutes someone was at our room to help us out.

Thank you so much for your review, we appreciate you taking the time out of your day to endorse us despite having an issue during your stay. We assure you water issues are rare at our property, and we have recently installed a second water heater to back up in case of an overload for the first one.

Ms. Jones

Thank you so much for your continued patronage. We are happy to have you stay with us during your visits to the Medical Center. Your review is about as wonderful as they get, we could not get paid advertising as good if we tried.

We look forward to seeing you again.

At Your Service,

This hotel worked out perfect for me. It is about 20 minutes from HOU and perfectly situated where I needed to be. It was one of the few hotels that I found with free parking. The hotel seems brand new (it isn't very old but still kept in great shape). My room was very comfy - featured high ceiling (I really like this because most hotels just have standard height ceilings, the extra couple of feet makes the space feel so much bigger), fridge, microwave and a huge LCD tv (i think it was 42 inches). The Front Desk Manager (Walker) really helped me out during my stay. I really appreciate a good staff at a hotel that sincerely enjoys making my life easier - this place has got it! Thanks!

Room Tip: Great Location and Free parking - GREAT STAFF

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. We know your time is valuable, and you have many options.

I hope we get to host you again soon.

Stayed at Holday Inn Express Medical Center for a week. The experience was great. Very friendy staff who were responsive to all needs. The front desk clerk would say good morning or hi in the evenings - you would not think this is big deal but after spending the day at the hospital with a loved one, it was nice to hear. They have a shuttle to the medical center. Breakfast was good - several items to fit any taste. They have a nice , clean washer and dryer that was $1.50 - they could charge more knowing people are there for extended stays - but don't. One other note - the hotel is right around the corner from Target, Kroger and may fast food as well as other resturants.

Stayed here while going to MD Anderson for treatments. This Hotel is very clean and the staff was extrememly friendly and helpful. Free breakfast was really nice as well. While tthe bed was really nice and linens clean, the mattress with a little firmer than me or my wife like. Not the worst I have ever slept though. Add a pillowtop mattress and this place is darn near perfect!

Also, Lots of shopping and restraunts within a short drive, some within walking distance.

I will be heading back to MDA next week and will be staying here again!!

If you need a receipt for your hotel stay for reimbursement purposes DO NOT use hotels.com or stay at this hotel.

I asked for a receipt at the hotel and was told that I had to get it from hotels.com.

I have made multiple attempts to get receipt to turn in to employer and have been unsuccessful.

DO NOT use hotels.com if you want to be reimbursed for your hotel stay!!!!
