We missed a United flight and was directed to Travel Alliance to book airline-approved discounted lodging for the night. The room was on the second floor, as soon as we walked out of the elevator the stale cigarette stink attacked us. Good thing the non-smoking room we got was clean with no indecent smell. Everything was fine and met our needs for the night. If you just need a cheap room to watch a bit of tv and sleep for the night after a warm shower, this is it you can't complain. The lobby is not the nicest but again, you are not staying here, just stop over while waiting for the flight.
They even have convenient 24-hr free shuttle but beware of the confusion at the airport (IAH), you have to make sure you go to the "Parking Shuttle" rendezvous point and not the "Hotel Shuttle" section otherwise you will wait forever and still won't see the blue colored Rocket Parking Shuttle that they send for you.More
