Pros: It is a small quaint Bed and Breakfast.
Location: It is in a neighborhood off of Montrose and Richmond.
The staff were vice. Check in was simple. I had to leave early so I did not have a chance for breafast.

A Delight to the Eyes!Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: I loved the riot of colors and patterns throughout the building and the grounds. The eclectic, and sometimes funky, decor was downright charming!
Nestled in the middle of the Museum district, the Robin's Nest was a remarkable feast for the eyes both inside and out, as the grounds were as well maintained as the rooms. While the lack of 24/7 staff was somewhat disconcerting at first -- especially for after hours check-in -- it was quickly dispelled by their availability to answer any questions and direct you by phone. And while some folks may find this lack of staff on premises during the after hours disconcerting, I actually enjoyed having the whole house to myself. My room was clean and very comfortable. The only minor inconvenience was that for this particular room, the historically charming bathroom was across the hall. But the B&B owners took this into consideration and provided complementary bathrobes. I wish that I could comment on the quality of the breakfast, but with the purpose of my trip to Houston being to visit my daughter, I elected to spend as much quality time with her, which meant that we enjoyed breakfast together elsewhere. I would most definitely consider staying at the Robin's Nest again!

Will stay againPosted Aug 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Was in town for a business trip to the hospital area. The neighborhood was a little rough, and I was a little nervous about parking my car on the street in front of the hotel. I didn't have any problems, and I felt safe in the hotel. I stayed in Antonio's room, and the room is very comfortable, large and has a comfortable bed. My only complaint is that there were no curtains. The windows had shutters which didn't completely close, so there was a lot of light. I don't think there were a lot of guests the night I stayed. It was quiet. I was running late and didn't get to enjoy the breakfast.

Artsy and comfortablePosted Jul 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
Definitely a lot to look at. Comfortable beds. AC, plumbing and shower work great. Breakfast was good. Would prefer if my order was taken, so would my picky daughter. A nice experience. Would recommend.

houston stayPosted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: The location
Location: museums, shopping. right in the middle of the city
The whole experience was a impersonal. I received an email that check in was between 2-5pm and if I was going to arrive later to let them know. So I rushed through my 5 hr drive to arrive in Houston and struggled through the traffic to get there at 4pm and no one was there. you call a number and they give you the code to the gate and the key and instructions are outside the door. I saw no one till the next day at breakfast. Breakfast was good but i was not offered seconds.

close to the museum districtPosted May 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
We arrived very late for check-in but I had called ahead and was given the code for the gate. The key and other instructions were waiting for us near the front door and we let ourselves in. The next day morning we had the most excellent full-service breakfast and met Robin's neighbor who was very friendly and gave us all sorts of tips for going around town. We stayed three nights and met Robin on two days at breakfast. She is very friendly and her staff is excellent. We are vegetarians and they fed us hearty breakfasts all three days. I especially loved how the full service breakfast starts with a huge cup of fruit salad everyday. The house is very old (built in the early 1800s) but quite clean. The Aunt Mae room was a little cramped but the downstairs hall and dining room and kitchen areas were beautiful. The shower had good water pressure but the tub itself was tiny. The queen bed in the Aunt Mae room was firm and comfortable but the twin bed creaked every time you turned. Not a real bed at all. Just an old fashioned cot inside what used to be the closet in the room.

Cute, tucked away, very little servicePosted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
There is no one there to greet you when you arrive at this little B&B. You are required to call one of the staff to get a gate code into the yard. Once in, your key is left in an envelope on the front porch. Just one attendant at the hotel when you arrive would be fantastic, but no such luck. The full breakfast (served after 8:00am) makes up for the lack of service upon arrival. The guests are seated at a large table and good conversation abounds. The dishes are simple, beautifully presented and delicious.

Pros: The room was huge, Kitchen area, living room area.
Location: Very convenient to Downtown as I was attending an event at Conference Center. It took me 10 minutes to get there.
This is a B &B so do not expect Hotel like amenities. I was in town for business and the room was excellent for what I need. No pool, but again I did not need that.
