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.

This was my first time staying here, and I would gladly return. My room was very comfortable and peaceful. Erica, the nice lady behind the front desk, was very helpful in helping me with dining options.
I stayed for medical treatment, and was impressed with the shuttle service.
The complimentary breakfast was very good, and loved the coffee!
Thank you for making my stay here so comfortable.

I booked this hotel thinking it was another hotel I saty in previously. I was a little nervious when i pulled into the driveway and noticed the storage facilty and the apartments. My view out of my room was the apartment complex.The staff at check in was very friendly and welcomimg. The room was standard Holiday Inn Express but I selpt good. breakfast was good and the same items at al Holiday inn Express. They open at 6:30am and everyone comes down around this time. The breakfast area is small but seems to work. OPverall this was a great stay and will stay again if I am in the area.

Stayed there in February due to Medical appointments at MD Anderson. MD Anderson rate at this Hotel is very reasonable. Rooms are very quiet and comfortable, staff very helpful when needing late check-out due to medical appointment running over. Flat screen TV has many HD channels. Shower has good water pressure. Cannot hear guests in adjacent rooms so sound insulation is excellent. Many food choices next door to this Hotel. Have stayed here before and will stay here again when in Houston for medical appointments at MD Anderson. Staff and Management should be proud of this facility.

I wasn't very happy with the Kitchen staff on Sunday but the manager Walker fixed it and made it all a wonderful experience.
The office girls Debbie and Erica were AMAZING!!!!!! The cleaning staff laura was rude and not willing to accomadate the guests but after bringing it to the Walkers Knowledge it was fixed asap.
I will be back
Thanks for the extra day we loved it
Only thing I noticed is that I was charged double for the night and 15.00 for another night can you look into this please

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MediTravel Dont believe any bad reviews about this place
The staff was sincere and enthusiastic, and the rooms impeccable. Ive stayed at a lot of hotel's in the area. This is one of the few hotels that always keeps space for me during the Rodeo. While they do ask for some form of identification, they are concerned with your privacy, as long as you are willing to provide any proof, they are happy to accept it. All I did was show my appointment letter, the agent took a quick glance, and said thanks.
We especially enjoyed the breakfast and shuttle drivers, they were very kind, and sensitive to my needs as a medical guest.

The front desk clerk was extremely rude. I overheard her talking about me to another colleague after I asked to speak to a manager about her poor, negative attitude.
I had reserved my room for 3 nights, I left right after my encounter with her and moved to another hotel. I was so upset by her behavior that I did not ask for a refund on my room.
I have stayed at this particular Holiday Inn several times, and have never encountered a front desk clerk as rude as her.
I will not stay at another Holiday Inn during my travels.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed21 No Empathy and poor management
My husband and I started staying at this hotel last year when we started bringing our son to Texas Children's Hospital for check-ups every 6 months. The first two or three times we stayed there staff was very friendly and helpful. They even recognized us and convinced us to become a priority club rewards memeber because they knew we would be returning. We decided to join because of the proximity to the hospital and of the very reasonable medical rate they offered and after all we knew we would be coming back as well. So they must have changed staff and management since the last time we were there because we saw all new faces and the vibe was completely different. First of all we were in town for an MRI for my son which happened to be at the same time of the rodeo. When arrived to the hotel we were very disppointed when we were told there would be no medical rate because of the rodeo. Even after telling him that we were there last year at that time and received the rate nothing was done to look us up or accomadate us. The manager was in the area and the front desk attendant even asked him about the rate and it seemed all we heard was "no" and "I'm sorry". I felt like the manager knew that we were not happy and did not even come to talk to us or explain why we could not receive the medical rate. So after four and a half hours in the car with a hungry, tired toddler we reluctantly paid full price because we didn't feel like fighting traffic to find a more reasonable rate. I even told the front desk attendant that would be the last time we would be staying there and still nothing was to even try to keep our business. So eventually after speaking with three different employees, two whom were very apologetic, I finally spoke to the manager who unfortunatley was not. I knew he already knew what I was going to tell him and hardley gave me a chance to speak. I felt like I was simply just brushed off by giving us some other type of discount. I was greatful for the discount because anything helps, but at this point its not even about the rate. I felt like the customer service we received was unacceptable and all they cared about was trying to make money off rodeo goers who might return once a year if that, and completly forgot about their loyal, medical cutomers who will unfortuntley have to return throughout the year. So sadly to stay, I dont think we will be returning. These doctor appointments are stressful enough, my hotel visits should not be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KWSA Medical center gem
Anyone who needs medical care at MD Anderson should think about this hotel. It's attraction is in its simplicity. More for your money, free breakfast, cookies in the lobby, free paper, and free shuttle. Rooms are generous with large bathroom and TV has every channel you want. Not a smoker in site (compared to nearby hotels) and the smaller size lends itself to a quieter stay. No pool but a couple treadmills and of course close to all the great eats around Rice University. Finally, Houston can be a little sketchy, especially around the medical center but the small hotel and single entrance/exit made me feel safe.

I tried to book at a Holiday Inn closer to the Medical Center Annex where I was working, but was unable to (probably due to the rodeo). Not only did I save money, but I had a whirlpool in my room. Also, the weather was nice, and I found it pleasant to walk home every night from work (about a mile, took about 20 minutes). All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Also, there is a Kroger and CVS within a block from the hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by medicalpatient disrespectful of privacy
My husband and I stayed for one night in order to keep a doctor's appt at MD Anderson. When making the reservation, we asked if a medical rate was available which we were subsequently given. Upon check-in, we were asked for "proof" of a medical reason for our stay in order to be given that rate. I had to show the desk clerk my appointment schedule at the medical center. I was so stunned at the request that I simply showed her my appointments. However, I consider that request to be the highest breach of privacy. Had I the opportunity to rethink my response, I would have refused and would have gone elsewhere. I will not choose to stay at this hotel again because of my experience. Nor will I recommend this hotel to anyone. I have had appointments at MD Anderson for the past 2 1/2 years and have stayed a couple of different area hotels. Never have I been asked for "proof".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Juliebug80 Hotel is a Real Gem
This was our first experience with this hotel. We were "referred" because the larger hotel (of the same chain) was full. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! The location is perfect for patients of MDAnderson. They provide a shuttle service, which we did not use, but the option is nice. The entire hotel is clean and lovely. The rooms are large and well kept. The rooms are truly "non-smoking" rooms with no residual odor! The furniture is modern, clean and comfortable. The bed was one of the best I've slept in in awhile, at a hotel. The lobby was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. They even provided copies of USA Today in the lobby for guests. I was pleased that my air conditioner worked and there was an additional heater provided. The semi-continental breakfast was nice. They even included pancakes and two other "hot" items in addition to the sweet rolls, cereal and fruit. I would highly recommend this hotel and we will be returning!

I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. It was my first time there. Upon check in, the staff was very nice and friendly. My room was very comfortable and mainly quiet. I didn't experience the food, as I was there for the World Champion BBQ Cook-off, so I didn't need to eat there. The location is great and very close to Reliant Park. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and hope to return next year.

I am a patient at MD Anderson, and I have stayed at this Hotel once before and we liked it so decided to stay again. It is not to far from the Medical Area that I need to go to so it is convenient for me, and also there are stores and plenty of restaurants around the area. I know being away from home is hard, but this is a great Hotel to stay since everything around is close by. We felt safe, and what I really do like the most is that it is a small Hotel, 3 floors, not to much noise, mainly adults no kids around and a great location. I would highly recommend this Hotel for anyones stay, whether it is Business or Leisure, or for what I go for Medical Reasons.
