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

"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
"Howard Johnsons Express-good price"
Good price for our 2 day stay in Houston. Staff was easy to deal with and timely with cleaning our room, which was very good. Comfortable bed, good supply of pillows, good water pressure on the shower, free internet, and large channel selection on the tv (more on that) Negatives would be the reception on the TV which supposedly had Comcast. Multiple […] channels had very poor reception which made watching some of March madness impossible. Also, the construction on I-10 was right outside of the entrance. This was out of their control of course, but the jack hammers on Saturday AM were annoying. And although not an issure for us, it would seem late comers are going to find parking a problem. There really is not enough parking for the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice choice, very affordable, convenient location"
just a bit noisy, but confi enough and clean enough.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not a bad place, it was clean and simple. Hotel staff wasn't especially friendly or helpful in finding things in the surrounding area but the place did the job. It was located conveniently for the places we needed to get to and it worked out just fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than expected"
After reading the reviews, I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly suprised. The rom was full of amenities such as Microwave, fridge,iron, blow dryer,coffee maker and a plasma. It's very conveniently located. I will definitely stay there again. The only negatives were the construction, the limited parking and the maids screaming back and forth […] in the morning.

"hotel good but needs help"
the A/C did not work all the time in rooom 116--I got a smoking room but reserved a non-smoking room---the hot water took a long time to get to my room when water turned on--the towels were fewGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a rainy day, so that might have influence it. But the hotel looks nice enough, but the room was awful. Smell very bad, and some areas of the floor were wet. i couldn't not stay the night there. Sorry.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My disappointing stay at Howard Johnson's."
The room was clean and comfortable, however the hotel didn't have a dining room, and wasn't within walking distance of any restaurants. I had taken a cab from the airport. The continental breakfast consisted of; your choice of a couple of breads, donuts, coffee, juice, fruit, and something I couldn't identify, and was laid out on a counter in the very […] small, cramped lobby where the check in desk is. There was a table pushed up against a wall, where 3 people could sit. I had to eat standing up because other people were already using the table. The person at the check in desk took care of business, but wasn't very friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very good price and location"
The location of hotel is cheap, very close to downtown and washington st activity. Room was clean, bed was confortable, air conditioner was good, rooms have a microwave and mini fridge. The only downfall is that the area is kinda of a bad. But definitly will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent room, good service, horrible CONSTRUCTION!"
We decided to go to Washington Ave for a friend's birthday party but didn't want to drive home after the clubs. The rooms were decent but there is a TON of construction in front of the hotel which makes it hard to get in and out of the parking lot. The woman at check-in was very helpful despite her broken english and the night shift worker was pleasant […] and apologetic when our cab left without us. He immediately called another and it was there within 5 minutes. Decent hotel for our needs but definately not for a romantic night out! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Howard Johnson Downtown Houston"
We stayed at the Howard Johnson on Thanksgiving weekend. The stay was fine expect the construction that was being work on in front of the hotel. The gates located on the side of the hotel were closed early and we had to go through the construction area which lead to the main entrance. The price was great and the location was very convient to downtown […] and easy to get to Galleria Mall. I would stay here again hopefully the construction will be done by then.

The first room I was in had a refrigerator that clunked constantly and smelled heavily of perfume. When I turned on the heat, the unit dumped smoke at me and set off the fire alarm. The room they moved me to smelled like vinegar and had not been cleaned. There was rust in the tub and the bathroom was much colder than the rest of the room I assume because […] of the drain in the middle of the floor that I am guessing went down to the sewer. This might also explain the vinegar smell. It took 15 minutes of running for the water in the shower to be anything other than ice cold and the walls were so thin it sounded like there was a herd of elephants all around me. Iam never going to stay at a Howard Johnson again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Economical and affordable."
Our stay at the Howard Johnson was great! We were comforable and we didn't have to travel too far to get to our daily destination in the downtown area. All the necessary amenities were provided. The only suggestion I would offer would be that rubber mats and safety handles be added to the tub to prevent any slipping or falling.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Bad Bad Service"
Reserved that room with a whole month in advance, when I got there the room was the most inconvenient one in the whole building! There wasnt enough parking spaces so if you got back late at night you will have to park outside of the complex and the hood around it's not the safest one to say the least, but you get what you pay for, I'll never stay here […] again and I'd recommend everybody to spend a little extra and find a better place than this...

"Howard Johnson Express near dowtown HOUSTON"
This place is great for those who want a good nights rest in a clean room. The staff was nice and parking was not an issue. The selection on breakfast could have been a bit fresher, but that's what starbucks is for. :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid rush hour traffic in the area...."
If, like me, you are working in the area of this hotel, you should definitely stay here. It's a small hotel with good onsite parking. You'll avoid Houston rush hour traffic...find attentive desk staff...enjoy extended Continental breakfast to get you out the door, and a nice, clean, quiet room. The hotel would be a great stopping spot on the way through […] on Hwy 10 too... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"our one day vacation"
My wife and I went to a taping of Americas Got Talent at the Verizon Theater in Downtown Houston. I picked this hotel because it was the closest most reasonable hotel in the area. Check in was great, the clerks were very nice and helpful. The girl at the desk the next morning was not helpful at all. The breakfast area was very messy and unkept. The […] milk they had for the cereal was in a vase left out with no refrigeration so I stuck with the waffles and coffee, which were both very good. The outside of the room was covered in bird poop from all the pigeons that were not shood away. The room was great and comfortable as a five star would be. We weren't there very long but way too much birds and their remnants. They need anti-pigeon repellant or something to get rid of all the birds. Probably wont stay again.

"Got the job done!"
I go to Houston a couple times a year for baseball games, usually stay downtown close to the ballpark. But this year with the budget alittle tighter we stayed at the HoJo. Its a quick 5 min drive to downtown, didnt stay in the room much just shower and sleep, clean rooms, nothing fancy, it worked for me....Genuine Hotels.com guest review

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

"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.
