This was my first booking at this hotel. It was a pleasent experience for the entire stay. The only reason they didnt get the 5 stars is because our room had a foul smell (somewhat like urine). I checked the beds for stains but the smell came from the closet. It wasn't pleasent but it was bearable. I still bought...

Stayed two nights at this Residence Inn. Great room with full kitchen. I really enjoyed the breakfast which was much more than just eggs and toast (the fresh fruit was a plus). We had the complimentary "dinner" on a Monday night, and the chicken, rice and fresh salad was good (big plus with free beer and wine). The pool area...

Stayed here in June 2014 for a few nights with friends. We had a 2 double bedroom booked and got complimentary upgraded to a suite which was very kind and much appreciated! Breakfast was nice and all staff were helpful and friendly. Nice establishment! Will stay again.

Nice hotel, great staff. Room was clean. One bedroom suite with full kitchen, large and 2 televisions. Friday night room rate for 2 was $139 It should have been perfect. Problem is NO ICE. Within your room, there is a full refrigerator with ice-maker. Housekeeping MUST empty the ice bin from previous guest because MAYBE the previous guest poisoned the...

I booked this hotel via an online website and got a great deal for last minute booking. For the price, the hotel was well worth it. First, it was located in the hear of West University with 2 minute access to the freeway and with 10 minutes of the Houston Galleria area. I loved that it offered free wifi, free...

Fit our needs for a weekend in Houston! Plenty of room with a kitchenette. Did not use pool or other things. It is very close to downtown and sports complexes. Would stay here again if needed room near these locations at a reasonable rate!

I stayed here for a week and it was a great hotel. The setup was great, rooms were standard size, the staff was awesome and the food they put out was really good as well. The only reason I left this hotel was to stay closer to my client and it was for convenience only. This hotel was closer the...

A three night stay at the completely booked Residence Inn Houston West University started with an arrival around 9:30 pm on a cold rainy night. The hotel was over-booked and my business partner and I were lucky/pleased that instead of moving us to the Courtyard (next door), they upgraded us each to two-bedroom units. We certainly didn't need that much...

I stayed at this hotel while a loved one was in a nearby hospital. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. My first room was well-appointed, clean and comfortable. I needed to switch rooms (due to something outside of the control of staff) late one night, and they accommodated me quickly. The second room, while still nice, was a lot...

I've been staying at this hotel since November of last year each week from Sunday and Thursday. On initial impressions I felt reception was outstanding and coming from the North East of the US I wasn't used to the friendliness and helpfulness in this part of the country. The rooms are more homely rather than modern but its a place...
