"Overrated and Expensive"
This was a $50 per night hotel for $100. The furnishings badly need refurbishing. The TV must have been at least 20 years old, with a grainy, washed-out picture, with a cathode ray picture (CRT) tube. The toilet needed triple flushing and the bathroom was dimly illuminated. The breakfast, if you can call it that, was an example of the minimalist menu. I only had the fruit - the rest was sugar-laden carbohydrate junk destined for denizens of trailer courts. A good thing was its location to where I needed to go and was within a triangular patch of land between three major arterial streets. Other than that, it was passable, livable, no injuries were sustained, no gunfights or fistfights. But, not my kind of hotel, unless it was 1/2 the price asked.

The room was clean and served our purposes. Parking was tight and the area around the hotel was congested. The personnel were helpful and accommodating.

"Perfect for what you pay for"
Very close to Rice University and surrounding areas. I walked around to get food and there are plenty of places around the corner, and many cars and people around. I felt safe even by myself at night. About 15 minutes to University of Houston.

"Positive but needs improvement"
The rooms are clean and the staff is pleasant and efficient. The shuttle service is fantastic especially since we were there for my hubby's visit to the cancer center. The motel is near a lot of shopping and eating places. The place is undergoing remodeling, and the first things that should have been done were the bathrooms. The plumbing is older and looks grubby although it was very clean. The rooms are not large for an extended stay, but ok for no more than a week if there are two people. The TVs are very old (CRT), so investment in some new flat-screens would be nice, esp. since the remotes are barely functional. The beds are not horrible, but were not comfortable for me since I have fibromyalgia. The price is reasonable, esp. if you are a patient at M. D. Anderson. One other thing: if you need to drive to the medical center, the motel is conveniently located. Would stay again for a short time only.

"Good location....Misleading pictures."
Pics showed a nice hotel with a pretty decent swimming pool. We get there after a 5 hour drive and the first thing my kids wanted to do was jump into that pool...Little that we know that swimming pool wasn't there(if it was ever there) since according to them, extra rooms where built where the pool used to be at.

"construction"
All the construction made it hard to park my mini van. The room needs to be updated. The coffee maker was broking. But for the price and the time that we spent there it wasn't bad. If need be we will stay again.

"Basic hotel in medical area that needs updating"
This is a basic hotel to sleep in. The service was good and they were able to move us from the 2nd floor to the 1st. It is in an excellent location if you need to go to the medical center and they have a shuttle service that goes hourly. There are plenty of places to eat in the area and a CVS and Walgreens are really close. The rooms smelled musky even though they tried to freshen it up and we also brought our own spray to refresh the room yet it still did not go away. The shower tub had mold on it. The tv was an old school one yet it worked. The room size was decent and the fridge and micowave worked well. You can hear the people upstairs walking loudly yet you expect that with some older buildings. There is something wrong with the pipes. When someone takes a shower even if it is someone from a different room, there is loud banging that is hard to ignore. The hotel is over priced for the condition and there are not thrills but the location is a great one. If you are looking for something nicer pay a little more to stay else where. If you are not particular person that can over look some of the cons, then stay here. We were able to get a room very last minute and had limited options and overall were glad to get something near this area.

"Clean with nice staff"
04/21/16 MarkT29 Fort Worth, Texas
This motel was very clean and appears to have been recently updated. The only negatives were that it was located in a strange place which made it a little hard to find and our room had foundations issues which made us feel like we were in the old "Batman" TV show due to the slope of the floor. Nothing big. The staff was very nice and helped with a problem I had from the site I booked the room on.

"Clean and friendly service. Perfect for Medical Center"

We were satisfied. The room that we stayed in was dated but was clean. The service was friendly and the shuttle was always on time. The distance to the medical center was short and easy. We will stay there again.

"My goal was met"
12/13/15 paju1452 Sulphur, Louisiana
My goal was to get a clean room within walking distance of NRG stadium and that is exactly what we got. I reserved a non smoking room. We got a smoking room but the only way we knew was due to the placement of ashtrays - no smoke smell. The mattresses were firm. The pillows were a little lacking. Not a 5 star hotel but that is not what you are paying for either. Its a good cheap deal!

"Perfect Location if you need the Medical Center"
09/12/15 Amanda V Orlando, Florida
Econo Lodge did nothing to stand out as far as a motel. The breakfast was plain, there was no WiFi, at least we didn't pick up any, but then again you get what you pay for. The restroom was no in the best condition, the drain was clogged, but I unclogged it, it was not difficult to do. The ceiling was peeling and a few cracks in the walls. The ac unit was dirty, but it is something that can easily be fixed. I will give them credit because they do provide a shuttle to and from the medical center, that was our reason for staying there. The first room had a broken fridge but they kindly moved us to another room. The staff was super kind. Walking distance to several food locations. There is an elevator if stairs are too hard. We stayed there for 2 weeks due to a surgery in our family so what we got what we paid for. I would stay there again with the medical discount.

"Much-needed facelift!"
08/22/15 Linda Y Dallas, Texas
I last stayed here in Aug 2014, and hardly recognized the place! The dumpy old office was relocated to area where pool had been. Most people don't come here to swim so in my opinion that is no loss. Now there is a modern office/check-in and breakfast area. My room was refreshed too, with new drapes, bedspread, and new window air conditioner. Rooms still have a small fridge and microwave, which is very handy. And they still provide the convenient hourly shuttle service to the Medical Center. You can walk to Walgreens, CVS, and even a Kroger. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and the office staff and shuttle drivers are friendly.There is a new Smoothie King sharing the parking lot if you find the breakfast lacking. If you are in the area for medical reason, ask for the medical rate, and I don't think you'll find a better value anywhere else. Thumbs-up on the remodel!

rooms clean. trouble with key for one of our two rooms. breakfast BLEAK. breakfast the very minimum one could call a "continental breakfast." reception area tiny. This was important because we were considering it for a five week stay. we decided because of bleak breakfast and tiny reception area we would not recommend anyone to have an extended stay there. cost reasonable and free shuttle to MdAnderson. staff friendly and polite.

"Good for an overnight"
12/04/14 bgoodlock Rockport, Texas
The room was clean. The place was actually quiet for such a busy traffic area. Be careful -- the wooden mattress frame was placed on the floor with no toe room so I kicked it a couple of times. The other tenants we saw looked a bit run down, but we experienced no problems. Considering the low price we got our money's worth.

"Budget but clean"
11/29/14 Bluejane85 Jefferson, Texas
Had to go to MD Anderson for a week of tests & didn't have a lot of money. A friend who's been going over 15 yrs to MDA w/her husband recommended this hotel. It's NOT fancy, but it is clean, although our room did have a slight odor, more from the "air freshner" they used I think...No bugs & the sm. fridge, microwave & coffee pot were a welcome bonus. FYI, call direct & tell them you're a patient, they'll give you a discounted rate. Shuttles every hr & those are LIFE savers when you are like us & from a sm. town & not used to that traffic!! And tip the drivers even if a couple bucks..it helps them remember you & when it's cold & you're waiting for a pick up...it's worth every penny.
