Reviewed 6 September 2013

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!!

Warped floors required furniture be propped up and the dresser drawer to always open a few inches. There were no dishes or utensils in the kitchenette so that was a bust. Not enough parking and spaces were not always marked. Housekeeper washed a styrofoam cup and left it face down on the counter like I wanted to use it again! Bugs!

It was a convenient location and the bed was comfortable enough, the A/C worked well and the wi-fi was fast enough. so it was not all bad. I doubt I would stay there again by choice.

The pictures look different from the room we stayed in, awful smell first of all, beds are hard, bathroom does not look like the one in photo. I had to move a construction cone which was placed in front of a small room which was for cleaning equipment just to park. The air conditioner was extremely cold and would not shut off during the night. We stayed here for one night and that was too long.

This place needs to be torn down. The beds are not actually beds. They are had made and sit on wooden platforms. The linen is stained and dirty/dingy looking. There were bed bugs, coffee spilled in the microwave, dirty floors and smelly--as in old, dusty, moldy odors--which sat in my bag for days even after using febreze and lysol.

Pros: Close to medical center, big and spacious room, working appliances in kitchen (fridge/micro/coffee maker/sink/cooktop), decently clean room
Cons: Limited parking, no utensils/plates/towels,etc in kitchen

--the neighborhood didn't seem unsafe to me at all. The hotel is kinda wedged between a residential and commercial area. There's a subway, whataburger, mcdonalds and taco bell about a block or two away and within a mile away there's a shopping center with a Randall's/Chickfila/Panera/Barnes & Noble, plus several other restaurants. I don't normally walk ANYWHERE at night so i can't judge how safe it is at night, but it's definitely safe during the day. My stays in houston are usually for multiple nights so i could see myself staying here several days if i had to without getting cabin fever.

This place wasn't bad as far as the room or the price, but the management needs to be fired. We stayed 2 nights to sell things at a festival close by (good location for us). The first night was fine, but after 14 hours of working we just wanted a good night's sleep before doing it again and then making a 5 hour drive home afterwards. This never happened. A group of young people had a party there and were making all kinds of noise. They were in the parking lot yelling and fighting and playing loud music from their cars. The front desk refused to answer their phone or call the cops. We go to this festival every year, we will not be staying here next year.

This place is the WORST OF THE WORST. This hotel is obviously providing free lodging for undocumented workers. Staff is incompetent. Rooms are disgustingly dirty. Neighborhood is flat out scary. Even in desperation, sleeping in your car in a safer area of Houston would be preferable to stepping one foot into this sad excuse for a hotel. RUN!
