They said they couldn’t find my reservation. I booked and paid for it through Expedia. She told me they were full and I’d have to go elsewhere. It wasn’t until I asked to talk to a manager (had to wait for nearly 30 min) that they miraculously found me a room.

This hotel was perfect for a short stay in Houston while we visited Texas Children's Hospital. The staff was kind and the hotel was quiet. The breakfast was excellent for a free breakfast. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We had zero issues with our stay and would gladly return. Our daughter particularly liked to eclectic and fun decor around your building.

It is a bit disappointing because I booked a separate room in conjunction with one another, and I was given 2 beds instead. Their breakfast is all the same for 4 days. I love the night shift receptionist, he is very friendly and accommodating but the other receptionist "CHESKA" is not friendly at all. for 4 days that we stayed at this hotel, she was not nice. I requested towels, and toilet paper and to have someone clean the trash, but she never sent anyone. We were out all day and when we got back into the room, There were no towels, no toilet paper, and trash was not picked up.

This is far from A boutique hotel it’s more like a motel six or red roof inn. The first room and they put me in smell like urine the carpet was dirty the cloth padding around the bed was filthy and the bathtub and toilet was dirty they put me into another room which wasn’t as bad but it wasn’t great either the air conditioner was super loud and kept me up all night to the point where I had to turn it off. The hotel itself had a very strong perfume a smell which kind of gave me a headache I don’t know if they were trying to mess the smell of the hotel just being old. Breakfast wasn’t that great it was just some bagels you put in the toaster some scrambled eggs sausage and grits a couple of muffins here and there and they had like tea and milk jugs into in this old dirty bowl filled with ice. The area around the hotel is very sketchy dirty and rundown I really don’t recommend staying here I would probably pay a few more dollars and go 5 miles up the road and stay in a better hotel

Staff great - friendly and welcoming. Love the kitschy decor and comfy bed. Excellent location for attending event at NRG stadium. Convenient walk to fast foods and a Target with good restaurants a quick drive away. Negatives were the lack of nightstan/reading lamp on both sides of bed, low pressure in the shower, and the noisy pipes when folks above us showered.
