First of all, the man at the front desk is a total JERK! He was always in the front office and even drove the shuttle some of the time. One time when he picked my husband and I up from the MD Anderson Center, he stopped by Taco Bell to get himself food. He never said a word to us and continued to go through the drive-thru. And then he was blasting rap music and yelling at other drivers. I did not feel comfortable with him driving the shuttle van. On another note, the "shuttle" is a dirty, old van that the staff use and clearly do not clean it. The room was very large, we stayed in the "King suite with a kitchen". Coming from North Carolina and planning on staying for a week to attend the MD Anderson Center, we chose to have a kitchen so we did not have to eat out all the time. The kitchen was BARE, we are expecting it to have pots, pans, plates, etc. Who carries these items with them when they are traveling? So we had to purchase plastic wear. The bed was old and you could feel the ruts of the other people. Also, on our first night one of the pillow cases had a small blood stain on it. The housekeeper was very nice and changed all the bedding when we approached her about the issue. Lastly, you will not want to stay here if you like nice things. The pictures look nice but it is not nice at all!! The sink had a huge crack in it, the shower curtain rod was breaking, the drywall has numerous cracks, we found 2 roaches. The attention to detail in this room was horrible. Trim paint all over the walls, no shampoo/conditioner, numerous light fixtures missing, burnt out light bulbs, horrible A/C. Bottom line, DO NOT STAY HERE. Yes, it is cheap but it is not worth it!!
