When I arrived, there was nobody in the front-desk. after waiting for a while - the man doing laundry had to help me, even though he didn't know how the computers work or anything. He gave me the keys for a room that was "clean".. I could see that they tried to make it look clean, but the bedclothing had...

My wife and I bought tickets to see Bob Seger in concert on Valentine's Day this year at the Toyota Center in downtown Houston, Texas. I figured that I would book a room for one night (Saturday) as close as possible to the arena to avoid paying for parking and the headache of trying to fight traffic to get to...

My husband and I booked this hotel through the Expedia website at the beginning of January for our Valentine's Day stay. On Valentine's Day at 10:00 am, just as we were getting ready to head to the hotel, the hotel called to tell us they didn't have a room for us afterall and they were booked for the night. I...

Went to Houston with a group of friends, one of which booked our hotel here. On the drive in from Dallas I looked up the hotel my friend booked on Trip Advisor to read the reviews. After the fifth review about this hotel "not finding" reservations, I called the hotel to check on our booking. They did not have any...

This is a very small hotel with 20 plus rooms all located on the second floor and with no elevator. My room had a full refrigerator, a stove and a microwave. I assume they all do. The room was sparkling clean!. I had trouble with Direct TV and the desk clerk finally after considerable effort got one channel. He said...

There are OTHER REVIEWS for this place where reservations get "LOST" and people get charged DOUBLE. This hotel is run by CON-ARTISTS who PLAY DUMB and ACT like they want to help you. Don't stay here unless you are fine with the risk of getting RIPPED OFF. My boyfriend and I had reserved a room for two nights TWO WEEKS...

To the budget conscientious like myself, Athens is a yes. The people who complain about it are wealthy but cheap individuals who want to stay at the Hilton, but pay 60$ a night, ignore them. If you can cancel a reservation for a fee and go stay at the Hilton instead, why the hell were you here in the first...

Seemed OK at first. Convenient location to Toyota Center for concert. Toilet flushed but the handle had to be manually lifted for the tank to fill. Still OK at this point. There was a full kitchen so being the good Cajun boy that I am, I decided to cook my mom dinner. It started warming up so I attempted to...

I had a good experience, diminished by a real frustration. Price was the attraction. I paid less than $100. I would have to have travelled far outside the City to get a similar price. The lobby is a little chaotic, and the place seems mid-reno, but my room was quite nice. I had a European feel, with a few spots...
