HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 June 2016

Good location right off interstate 45, near the cruise ship docks. Comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff. Good continental breakfast, near restaurants and tourist sites. Industrial harbor area so no terrific views. Reasonablew rates and they let us leave our car there free while we were on the cruise. Shuttle to the ship across the street.

Dear Valued Guest, We sincerely thank you for you honest and accurate feedback, as we have put a lot of work, time, and money into the place to improve it for the accommodation of primarily cruise, but also every guest at this semi-convenient location. We hope to see you again soon! Best Wishes, Todd Overstreet, Assistant Manager

Rooms were still dirty and floor turned the kids feet black. Dead bugs in the dressers drawers. Would only stay here again if I absolutely had to. Got locked out of the room keys no longer worked had to go down to the front office and ask them to reissue keys that would work.

When I look for the lowest rate, I am aware that a hotel/motel is likely going to be dated, in poor repair etc.. All I expect for the lowest rate is good housekeeping and good A/C-Heat .. nothing more, everything else is a treasure find. This room was FILTHY walking around in the room in my bare feet then stepping...

It is not a fancy hotel, but the room and bathroom were clean. We stayed just one short night, had to be at the hospital early for surgery. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I would stay there again.
