Very Nice Experience

I booked this hotel last minute and the pictures on the site were dead on to what I saw when I got to my room. Really nice staff, clean and comfortable room and having what seemed to be a new fridge and microwave in the room was wonderful for my three day stay. Especially since there weren't many restaurants close to this hotel, which was the only downside to staying here. I also was awaken in morning by semi's fueling at the gas station next door but overall I had a good experience. Will definitely stay here again.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There are no restaurants within walking distance of this hotel and most places in this area stop delivering early for some reason. But a few miles away heading back toward IAH airport you will find fast food and some restaurants.

Nice staff, good location

The staff was very helpful. They picked us up at the airport and took us back. There was a very good continental breakfast served: Cereal, muffins, fruit and coffee. The room was quiet. They have satellite TV with many channels. There is a shell station and a convenience store across the street, in case you want anything else.

One night stay

Needed a room for one night and the price was very good. Very close to the airport. There isn't much around the hotel besides a gas station and a food mart but there is always food delivery and the hotel supplies menus and complimentary breakfast. If you don't have a car, you can rely on taxis or the free shuttle to and from the airport. (You will need to call the hotel once you're at the airport and request that the shuttle pick you up.) The room was clean and comfortable but it was easy to hear what was going on outside my door.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

If you need a place to stay for the United Inflight Training Information Session, the hotel provides a free shuttle to the interview place but does not offer a return shuttle. You will have to catch the free shuttle from the interview place to the airport and then call the hotel to shuttle you back to the hotel.

Really close and conveniant to KIAH

We stayed overnight to make a flight. This hotel is less than five minutes from the airport on a local road and sits next to a gas station/ conveniane store that carried pretty much everything. I would definitely go back when I do my next flight out.

Gas station next door. Everything else is a five mile local drive. Buy a street map of Houston before you go.

inexpensive hotel close to the airport

I got a good rate at this place and like the fact that it is very close to the airport. Even though the place is new, but the room had a strong hotel smell. It is a basic motel with minimal amenities.
