Reviewed 1 November 2016

We stayed here to attend a conference at the GRB convention center. The location was very convenient and the staff was very friendly. The rooms have microwaves and they provide all necessary utensils. It's close to a lot of really great places. We enjoyed our stay. Would recommend staying here if you're looking for a place in Downtown Houston.

This place is located conveniently in Houston, however the staff is beyond rude and the building is terrible. As good as the price was, I still feel like I over payed. I would definitely recommend the sidewalk as a better alternative than staying here.

Booked for convenience to nearby concert venue. Found bed bugs and dirty sheets upon arrival. No refund offered since I had "already checked in." Staff reluctantly gave me back the copy of my drivers license they had on file. Sketchy and unhealthy facility. DO NOT STAY HERE.

This is a small hotel with a very friendly receptionist and all the amenities you need for a great price and a great location to go to the Toyota Center, House of Blues or Minute Maid Park. It has free internet, ROKU TV, a kitchenette, ceiling fan and free breakfast. It's not super fancy, but it's super clean, quiet and...

So I was a bit skeptical about this place with all the negative reviews. I saw that people were mostly having issues with booking, which is really a personal issue due to mediocre planning, so we took a chance. Boy were we surprised at how pleasant this place turned out to be! The location is awesome and the prices are...
