"A Pleasant Surprise"
My room was very nice and there were no problems with anything. The place seems to be well run and cared for. The only downsides that I saw were that parking can get a bit tight in this 30-unit HJ and the small office lobby can get a bit crowded during the continental breakfast. But with a microwave and frig in your room, this is a hard deal to beat. […] I will be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms clean, got key quick. Went to baseball game, got out late so checked in at midnight. Area was so sketchy. Not best place for single women with kids(glad my bro in law came with) good price. I wont go back just because of areaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room not ready"
After fighting all the road construction surrounding the hotel we finally arrived to find our room door wide open and the room was filthy. The old adage , "you get what you pay for", definitely applies to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very clean and seemed to be recently renovated with nice upgrades. The hotel is about a mile from Washington Ave. which has a lot of restaurants and bars. There was a lot of construction right outside the hotel along i10 which had some roads closed but nothing that really effected the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value in Houston"
I liked the cleanliness and comfort, plus the good price - a true value. I will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Accessible to All of My Points of Interest"
This Howard Johnson [H J] appears slightly isolated, with front entrance access on the I-10 Access Road, currently undergoing maintenance. Fortunately, Google Maps clarify that it is not all that isolated but rather offers relatively easy auto access to all of my points of interest: The Heights Area, Shades Rest, Opera in the Heights, The Museum Area, […] Rice Univ, Downtown Live Theatre, Mark’s Rest, a huge Kroger Grocery & Pharmacy, an Oriental Cleaner, etc. For instance, with the Southbound Lanes of Heights Blvd as the starting point, access to the Wortham Center via Memorial Drive is almost easy. Drive up Shepherd to 19th Street, head East and you are a few blocks from the middle of the Heights Area, with many facilities for young intellectuals and other Texas Style independent thinkers; the heart is a very classy independent coffee shop that makes a unique Espresso. On your way back to Bush Airport via I-610, the 19th St UPS Store will ship back your bulky purchases. I found the H J staff to be most helpful and informative; probably family run. It has all of the amenities middle-class travelers expect: Continental Breakfast, Flat Screen TV, Refrigerator, Microwave, etc. ONE NEGATIVE: Bring just off of I-10, some of their best week night customers drive slightly wide industrial trucks & vans which do not fit with much slack into parking spaces. I always like to park with empty spaces on both sides & most of the time this was not possible. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
For the price, this turned out to be an excellent stay. A good inexpensive alternative to a Downtown HotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I plan to stay here again."
Safe, convenient location; clean, comfortable room. The microwave & refrigerator in the room were an added bonus. Bed was comfortable. Very accommodating staff. Plan to stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
My only comment is the parking was tight. Not a lot of spaces. Also, it was in a road construction zone, so getting in and out of the hotel area was challenging. I expect this to change when the road construction is done.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very clean, comfortable bed. Good price for an overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Suprisingly good hotel"
Overall the stay was quite nice. The hotel rooms had new/nice furnishings and for the price of the hotel I was very surprised. The commute to downtown only took about 10 minutes (sometimes closer o 15-20 with traffic). Only issue I had was the room keys stopped working quite a few times, but that could have been due to my flip-magnet wallet..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable and clean. Construction on the Freeway did cause a little hardship in getting to the hotel if unfarmiliar with the area. Was very close to where I needed to be the following day. I would definately stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Price was Right"
Nice room with refrig., microwave, and TV. Unfortunately, lots of construction, dust, noise, etc. in a very questionable neighborhood. Also, breakfast was cold coffee and cold eggs. Staff, however, was friendly and tried to fix problems.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Minute Maid Park, about 15 minutes away"
The room was clean and comfortable, right off the freeway and easy to get to. If you stay here you must go to 'W Cafe', excellent food and it's just down the road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"receptionist was awesome Latino guy-very cool"
my stay was very comfortable nice and quite--no hassles whatsoeverGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for inexpensive, overnight stay"
This hotel is very inexpensive, the staff was polite and helpful-they let us check in 1 hr early free of charge, and the room was very very clean. They have a safe, a nice fridge, microwave and a nice size tv with lots of channels. However, it is located in a very dismal area of town. It appears to be in an industrial area with several old offices buildings. […] I stayed there because I was attending a concert at the Toyota Center that night and wanted a place that was very inexpensive and close by; so I wasn't disappointed by the hotel. I knew I was getting bare basic when I signed up for it. If you are staying there for a reason similar to mine, or just need a place to sleep and shower for the night on a road trip and don't want to pay much, then it's fine; but if you are planning a longer trip and have a family, definitely stay away. There are hardly any places to eat nearby (a Wendy's down the road and a Salt Grass restaurant across the freeway--which is hidden from view#. The hotel has a computer in their small check in room that you can use but there is no pool, business center, fitness area, --so if those things are important to you don't go. The furniture was old, #a lamp that had a bulb that kept flickering, scratches on the bed boards, a missing handle on the drawers). Again, those things didn't bother me because I was expecting it, given the price. It just depends on why you're there, It really isn't a good choice for a long vacation but is fine for a 1 night stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed my stay there. Parking was tight and had to park across the street but other than that it was ok. Im willing to stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is Ok. No problems. The rooms are clean, the location was convenient for our needs. The breakfast is not fancy, but still Ok.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean room. Very nice and accomodating staff. Big breakfasts - omlets, sausage etc. Refrig and microwave in room.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was painted a LOUD orange that would have kept me awake at night. There was really loud, dirty construction and the neighborhood was sketchy. When I saw the safe in the room I paid for the first night and left as fast as I could. I was in the room long enough only to arrange for another room in another Hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good value for the price"
it was a very good experience... worth for the price...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not that great"
they dont let pets stay there, it is not in there listing or on there website, they want a 100.00 deposit if u have petsGenuine Expedia guest review
Having stayed at other Howard Johnson hotels, I expected a decent room, but this was well above my expectations. Room was quite clean, well maintained, smelled clean. Staff was responsive & pleasant. A/C was awesome! Cooled so well, we had to turn it down in the morning. Good little coffee maker ( although I have learned to ALWAYS bring my own coffee […] & filters, as in-room hotel coffee is notoriously awful everywhere). Would definitely stay there again. Great value! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything, but road work everywhere"
I was very surprised that the place was clean and the staff was very friendly. I honestly thought that for the price and location after reading other reviews that I would be in a semi-scary area. Effortless check in, okay neighborhood, No bed bugs or german roaches (I work for a pest control firm), and the smoking room that I requested was not a problem. […] Good spot if you are in town to get to the Toyota Center. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Stay but annoying Road works"
Great location right on freeway near to downtown, easily accessible, free wi-fi, free parking and room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was so-so with only one table and 4 chairs but it was not important as we spent most of time eating outside. The only annoying part was several road works, road blocks and dusty roads, I hope thats just temporary though. […] Overall it was good stay. I would recommend if you for looking for short getaway stay Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap option but no-refills motel-style place"
Ok, here's the scoop.... If you are looking for a cheap motel (not hotel), near downtown Houston in the historic Heights neighborhood this is a choice. Due to room doors being open to the outside (motel style) and that this hotel is in a not-so-safe area, I would NOT recommend it for any women traveling alone. The deadbolt on my room needed to be fixed […] as it would not fully engauged. Ok choice for guys needing a cheap place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent Motel, Decent Price"
This nothing fancy motel is located RIGHT by the highway (I-10). There is also road construction going on on the road in front of the motel. Noise may be a problem for some. I just left the AC/fan blowing all night and the noise was not a problem for me (although my room was located farthest from the hway). The lobby is small, so the breakfast area […] seats only four. Given the limited number of units in the motel, the breakfast selection was not bad. Other reviews noted a lack of parking. There is limited parking, but I found a space on each of my three nights there. Room was decent (once I got past the fact that one wall was bright-orange) and properly cleaned. The bathtub stopper did not work and the door security chain was missing, otherwise everything was in good shape. It seemed that most of the guests were construction workers of some type.

"BREAKFAST IS OK."
IT WAS EXCELLENT FOR THE PRICE, ESTRATEGICAL LOCATION.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is a great value, everything was clean and comfortable. You get a mini fridge and a microwave which is helpful and free breakfast with toast, cereal, oatmeal etc in the morning as well. It is right on the freeway but we didn't find it to be too loud. If you cross the freeway there are lots of restaurants along Shepard street to chose fro […] m, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel muy cerca del centro"
La llave de la habitacion no servia. Tuvimos que ir 3 veces a la administracion para solicitar ayuda y hasta la tercera vuelta el clerk vino a la habitacion para decir que tenia que llamar a mantenimiento. No pudimos entrar a la habitacion hasta mas tardeGenuine Expedia guest review
Kort vei til sentrum. Godt renhold og greie store rom. Fint og ryddig utvendig samt gode parkeringsforhold. Veldig god service og greie ansatte. Ligger like ved I-10 men ingen støy som er merkbar på rommene. Rimelig!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
el personal es agradable, los cuartos estan limpios, pero no esta precisamente en el downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"un hôtel très médiocre"
positif : prix abordable, parking et pas trop loin du downtown. Accueil poli sans plus. Mais moquette vieille et très poussiéreuse - allergiques fuyaient. On a trouvé des cheveux dans la baignoire. La climatisation avait été modifiée et l'air soufflait sur le lit . Le moteur était bruyant. Impossible d'ouvrir la fenêtre pour aérer sans climatisation. Bruit […] de la circulation toute la nuit. Petit déjeuner : 8 places assises seulement complet mais gras et produits très bas de gamme hyper chimiques même les mini cakes!!!. Notre recours : les bananes et quelques céréales.

Das Hotel war i.O. In einem extra Frühstückraum wurde ein überdurchschnittliches amerikanisches Frühstück angeboten und von einer netten Bedienung gereicht. Da unser Föhn defekt war, erhielten wir unkompliziert eine Schlüsselkarte für ein unbelegtes Nachbarzimmer. Ein Safe ist im Zimmer nicht vorhanden.Genuine Expedia guest review
