Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ETC68 Fair at best
Paying $5 to park is bush league. No mention of this at check-in (or even asking if I had a car to park) just added automatically at check-out. Otherwise ok for an older/dated/tired HI near the airport but I won't be staying there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarolH Great access to Houston Hobby Airport
We live in San Antonio and always struggle with having to make flight connections, and having to fly out first thing in the morning.The security lines at the SA airport are jammed packed in morning since every airline has flights heading out to their hubs. We chose to fly out of Houston so we could get a direct flight to our destination and so we didn't have to fly out at 6:00 AM. We picked the Holiday Inn because it was close the airport and we were able to leave our car at the hotel and take the shuttle. It was SO convenient and easy. We were surprised and please to learn that the they offered covered parking AND we were only minutes from the airport. We climbed on the airport shuttle and pulled out of the hotel at exactly 7:00 AM. We were through security (no checked bags) by 7:12 AM--doesn't get any better than that. When we got back to Houston, there was a shuttle already at the curb--we were on the highway in our own car headed home about 20 minutes after our plane touched down. Our room had queen beds which is perfect for our family of 3 (my 6'3" husband hates those hotel rooms with full beds!). The staff was very nice and check in was quick. We will definitely use the hotel again when we fly out of Houston!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by adamycin1 Not an upscale hotel
To begin there was a lot of repair going on so it was messy. My room was very weathered with water stains on the roof, old carpet, old furniture, and bathroom towel rack falling off the bathroom door. Then the air conditioner began to shut off periodically when the room was still hot. I was uncomfortable all night and did not sleep well. Breakfast was good though. Next time I am near Hobby airport I will stay somewhere else I think.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ddawg212 Reservation
When I checked in I was not assigned the King bed room that I reserved. When I got to the room I called front desk to tell them about discrepancy . I was offered a handicap king room and when I turned it down he then offered the regular King room. I settled with the credit for room difference. Apparently he was saving the king room for someone else

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by charlestiberius Convenient hotel, decently priced
The hotel could use a major facelift--carpet, etc. is aging. However, it is clean and well kept up, and the staff is always extremely helpful. It's close location to Hobby is a definite benefit as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by meltb Houston Airport convenience
Nice hotel, had gotten a better room the week earlier with better rates. No food nearby, but they do have a list of places that will deliver, the Chinese delivery is really good, nice when you fly into Houston and have no car and a layover. On site restaurant is expensive, but complimentary breakfast buffet was really good. Comfortable bed, quiet, except for the occasional muffled plane take off. Front desk staff was really good, friendly and helpful. Shuttle to airport is very convenient. Overall a good hotel to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by meltb Waiting for Carnival Cruise trip
Flew into Houston to catch a Carnival ship, This hotel was very convenient to the airport, quiet, (heard the occasional muffled sound of a plane arriving/taking off), very helpful, friendly staff. Did not eat at the hotel café, thought it was pricey, but better than having to go out and look for something. Not much around here to eat at.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AJoshi Average Service, No wifi inside the room.
No recognition of IHG membership. Had wrong points on the room key card. Gave one only one coupon for breakfast when I was staying for two nights.
Wifi signal was not available inside the room. When talked with front desk he told that other guests are not complaining so it could be your device.
Will not stay at this property again. Will stay at Holiday Inn Express which is nearby where I stayed last time and experience was good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KGM51 Labor Day Crazy!
I checked in the morning before Labor Day and the lobby was full of people! I mean crammed! Some coming, some going. There was one lone guy behind the desk, Demetri was his name. He was the picture of grace under fire. He worked quickly and efficiently and never lost his smile. He made my stay!
The next morning I checked out and Demetri was at the desk again. "You survived", I said. "And you came back for more. " Demetri said, "I really like my job." He's a keeper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chava Recognition of Status
When I checked in I was not recognized as a Gold Member, and was not offered a bottle of water as any other IHG locations do. When I inquired about the water the person at the front desk looked at me like if I was begging for water and said he was going to send the water to my room, but that never happened. You make a big deal on your surveys about the fact of IHG Members' status recognition, you pamper your customers with perks, and then the promise is not delivered. I am disappointed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by airwaffle Overall good value
Staff was very friendly, and the free breakfast buffet was pretty nice, although not sure if it is free for non-members, but if you can get it on a booking deal, go for it.
The facilities are a bit older, and could use an update, but nothing was below acceptable. I would say the only point I was not 100% satisfied with was the mattress seemed a bit lumpy on one side. I moved to the other half of the bed and it was fine, but I suspect the pillowtop of the mattress has gone flat, and needs to be changed.
The location, literally right across from Hobby Airport, is pretty awesome though, if you have work in the area. Overall a good value.

Our room had an annoying knocking sound. Finally figured out it was the pool ropes in the wind right outside our window. The ropes had these styrofoam balls on them to separate the deep side and they hit together.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by E531 pluses with a couple of minuses
I want to start by saying that overall, I wood recommend this property on the basis of service, location and amenities . On the negative side, the shower knob in our room was broken and the air conditioning had to be started manually each and every time after it reached the desired temperature.
temperature.We booked two rooms and didn't want to be separated so we just decided to rough it:-) . The property was also a bit dated. That's all the negatives...and I have definitely experienced worse.
The positives were the professionalism and responsive staff, the café was incredible with excellent service and the property was very clean. I would absolutely stay there again. Its a prime example of a business making the best with what they have to work with.

The Holiday Inn's location is great being right by Hobby airport making it very convenient for arrival and departures. Surprisingly the room was quiet and I was never aware of the planes taking off and landing. The shuttle service is prompt and quick. The team at the front desk were very courteous and efficient. Their acknowledgement of my IHG membership and displayed genuine appreciation for my IHG Platinum status and had my registration complete and all I had to do was sign and get my room key. I appreciated the professionalism of Jeremy and his ensuring that I had the room that I wanted. The common areas and poolside were well maintained and inviting. Antonia is exemplary and her team also. Arely helped me with additional reservations and club questions that I had. Thank you.
You will love the great Breakfast selections and service.
I look forward to my next visit to Houston.

I will say that i've stayed at this property multiple times although its been about 8 months since my previous stay. They've made great improvements to their dinner menu, both in selection and quality and will say I was pleased with every meal i ordered.I did have several issues with my room and had to be smitched rooms twice during my stay, but staff handled it professionaly and resolved the issues. I felt the GM should know what happened so i left him a voicemail to contact me. Never heard from him so in the evening I asked to see the manager and was handed over to Antonia who was greaat and followed up on my concerns. I was not to happy that the GM did not take the time to return a voicemail left by a guest, but at the end i was pleased with Antonia's response. The Hotel needs a little updating and definately not the prettiest Holiday Inn in Houston but the staff makes up for it. I will be returning in 2 weeks.
