Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SAYERS EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL
WE NEEDED SOMEWHERE TO STAY FOR THE TEXANS AND SEAHAWKS GAME. AFTER I DID EVIEWS AND LOOKED AT THE DISTANCE I DECIDED TO GO WITH YOUR HOTEL BECAUSE I FIGURED THE WALK WOULD NOT BE THAT FAR. WELL SUPRISE ME BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE TO WALK A SHUTTLE TOOK US TO THE GAME AND HE WAS VERY NICE. AFTER EATING THE BREAKFAST MY HUSBAND SAID HE HAD TO MAKE SURE WE DID A REVIEW BECAUSE IT WAS GREAT AND THE DINING AREA WAS CLEAN AT ALL TIMES. THE ROOMS ARE VERY NICE AND THE STAFF WAS FRIENDLY. THE LOCATION WAS NEAR THE STORE AS WELL AS RESTARAUNTS. WE WILL BE BACK.

This hotel has not been updated in a long time. The room we were assigned was filthy. The roof was hanging down in spots and filth was on the walls as well as the floor. I would opt for somewhere else, next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michele1964 Great place to stay when at MD Anderson
We enjoyed our stay at this location. The shuttle to MD Anderson was great and the breakfast was awesome. I would recommend it to others. Please put more lighting in rooms, even with all of the lights turned on, it was too dim

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not8applicable Not good overall
This motel was good a few years ago. I can't say that now. The room smelled musty, the beds were hard with small pillows. I stayed two days and both mornings the breakfast they offered was the usual, but the food that was supposed to be hot was cold. The juices were empty and i did see any concern from the hostess tending to the items.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mpala2171 A home away from home
I felt welcome from moment I walked through the door and treated as a valued guest. From the friendly staff of the front desk to that of the breakfast area, I knew I made the right choice to stay here as opposed to another place. When I got to my room, it was so comfortable it felt like a home away from home.
Location is within close proximity to major attractions with restaurants and shops within walking distance. Downtown Houston is just a short walk away via the Redline Metrorail.

This was the fastest check in and check out to date for me. Employees were very helpful and courteous. Very clean. Will look forward to our next visit to Houston to stay in this hotel. Close proximity to almost everything especially the Houston medical center with shuttle service.

All of the staff we saw were wearing a smile (is that a requirement for employees?), which made us feel they were glad we were there. The shuttle got us to our appointment timely and returned to pick us up timely as well.
Most importantly, when we found out we were finished after only half a day rather than the 2 days we thought would be needed, we were allowed to check out without paying for another day.

This was our second time to stay at this motel, and I would recommend it to anyone. The room is nice, with plenty of space so you don't feel crowded. I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. The breakfast choices are great, not just day-old pastries. I will be back to MD Anderson soon and hope to be able to stay here again. The staff was friendly and helpful, and everything in the room worked as it should.

I stay here frequently for medical visits to MD Anderson. The staff is extremely nice and always very accommodating whether it be a request for a late or early check in/out or whatever I have needed. The shuttle they provide for transporation to medical appointments is great. The hotel is also within walking distance of restaurants, grocery store and pharmacy. I would definitely recommend it.

Bed was good. Room was quiet. A variety of eating establishments were within walking distance along with a CVS and Kroger and Target. I would stay there again. The staff were pleasant and accommodating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DoniSue Perfect location for our needs
We were in town for a few days for a medical procedure for our son. This is the perfect location. We were within walking distance to the surgery center, restaurants, Super Target. Would stay here again. It is not for family vacations, as there is no pool, but perfect for our needs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tgilkey57 Not what I expected
I was very disappointed with my stay at this Holiday Inn. The pictures on the website are very misleading. It appears to be a new Holiday Inn Express, but in reality is an old run down Holiday Inn.
The 1st room we got, the lock on the door did not work, so I requested a different room. The 2nd room wasn't any better. It was a miserable experience, and I would not recommend this hotel.

Everything was as to be expected for Holiday inn express except for the AC didn't get very cold and after having surgery it was a little uncomfortable but we got through it and would stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mikey1401 clunky air conditioner
the hotel didn't have a swimming pool...disappointing...upstairs over our room, it sounded like they were moving furniture all night...the air conditioner snorted and wheezed all night and finally went out around 4 am...good thing we had to leave early...bed was comfortable but can get more value elsewhere for same price

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anderson2013 Bad part of town?!
We chose this Holiday Inn because of the location to MD Anderson and the price. Our first stay was on May 9 and 10 and everything was wonderful. Then we returned home and came back to this Holiday Inn on May 12, 2013 for an overnight stay. This was a Sunday night and the parking lot was full when we returned from eating at one of the local Mexican restaurants. Monday morning our daughter had an appointment at MD Anderson at 7:00 am, so we were leaving the hotel at 6:30 am. That is when we discovered the Chevrolet Equinox in the parking lot! Someone had removed all 4 tires sometime between 11:00 Sunday night and 6:30 Monday morning. I immediately notified the front desk staff, who sent several staff members to the parking lot. I can't imagine the frustration the owners of the vehicle must have felt, especially if they were there for an appointment at MD Anderson. We will not stay at this particular location again due to this incident.

I got this room for my cousin whose husband was in the hospital at the Medical Center. She was very happy with the room and the service from the front desk personnel. However, in the middle of the night her car was broken into. The thief broke the back window rather than popping the locks or breaking the side window (?) Police thought they might be looking for things to steal for drug money. There was a lot of glass and some blood, so these weren't the sharpest knives in the car thief drawer.
My cousin was lucky they didn't steal the car altogether....
This is a nice property in a not so nice area of town. The perimeter of the medical center area is not the greatest.... hard to avoid, though, if you want to be close to a loved one in the hospital.

I stay here due to the inn's proximity to the Medical Center. It is not one of the newer properties but is well-maintained. The staff is fantastic. If there is a problem, which is rare, an employee always take care of it immediately. I have heard comments from employees that their boss is fantastic. I will return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sarah44 Good stay, at a stressful time, at Holiday Inn Express Medical Center
-Staff was very accommodating and there was great service.
-Price was high for a three star hotel but okay for the area!
-There was a good variety of breakfast items and the service was so friendly and helpful. Great cinnamon rolls!!
-My sister and I stayed in a suite so I could make it more comfortable for her as she was having Chemo and Radiation treatments. Room was large and Clean! Bed was comfortable and it was great to have a microwave and Refrigerator.
-The cleaning crew took care of us in a professional matter.
-Hotel could use some updating on carpet, lighting and furniture.
-Reception staff was extra helpful and tried to accomodate our needs when we had to extend our stay a few days.
-Hotel close to Medical Center and Museums-so good location. The shuttle service was good and so helpful for going to MD
Anderson Clinics. (No charge) But-people should tip!!!
-If you drive it is difficult to get in and out of Hotel, but once you get used to the correct route, it is not too bad!
-A couple of issues occurred-we had a leak in our room by the window during a rain deluge and hail storm. Hotel did offer to move us but my sister was not feeling well and really did not want to go through moving to another room! Maintenece did come to the room and provide some towels for the leak!
-I would definitely stay here again and reccommend this Hotel to anyone!

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn for several years and had in the past found good value and a well kept hotel. However, the most recent stay we found the hotel prices have soared really too high for the location. The hotel staff was excellent, the room however had several problems. The desk lamp was almost completely falling apart, the a/c was extremely loud, one of the lights by the bed was burned out, the tv remote batteries were so low as not to work most of the time. The breakfast was good as was the staff who handled these duties. So in general the price even for Priority Club members has priced us out of this location and the maintenance issues were also an issue for us.

We have stayed in various hotels of late since my wife has breast cancer. Some in Austin, some in Houston and then in other towns where Holiday Inns are not available.
This hotel beats all of them - Holiday Inn or whatever brand. I will not hesitate to stay here again. Good atmosphere, good smelling rooms, good service, good breakfast, good folks at the desk. What else can I say? Excellent.

I have recently stayed at this hotel while going to MD Anderson and the Texas Medical Center. The hotel itself is very clean and pretty inside. The staff here is just great. They are willing to accomodate your needs and it never seems to be a problem. From the front desk staff to the houskeeping department they all truly seem to love their jobs and want to please the guests. The shuttle that runs on an hourly basis to the Texas Medical Center area hospitals is great and truly saves you approx. $20 per day by the time you drive yourself and pay parking. I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.
