  • Even if you aren't a space geek the Rocket Center is worth your time and money. It has an amazing and well-designed history of space flight in the US. Although space isn't capturing the imagination it...  read more »
  • Easy to get to and very friendly staff. Always there to answer any question we had. Very easy to get to and a lot of information. 
  • The location is convenient and the staff is friendly, but the room was pretty crap. I think this used to be a different motel and was converted, but that's not the problem. The problem is likely with the cleaning staff. There was a random roach (just one so, to be fair, it could've gotten in through the door), random hairs from the towels and blankets (which leads me to believe their lint filter on their dryer has been neglected), and a super odd smell in the fridge (almost as though someone had been smoking in the room but solely exhaling in the fridge). Between all of that and the uncomfortable nature of the bed (which smelled like it hadn't been properly cleaned following a bug bombing), I'm glad we were only there one night.
  • Left hotel with bites all over! Checked out and got home and noticed over a dozen or more bites all over, hotel claims they have no bug problem and there were no bugs in the room. Advised maybe I was allergic to the laundry detergent. Pay the money and stay elsewhere.
  • Great value. Comfortable rooms. Very convenient location to research circle. Breakfast is a little wanting.
  • Stayed here a couple of weeks ago, out side pretty clean, they really needs to do something with those bugs in the bed, I smashed one of them and nothing but blood came out of it, that was disgusting. For some reason the entry doors to the rooms have huge gaps, anything can crawl in.
  • The location was fine not far from restraunts. Near i565. The rooms had functional appliances. The tub in the bathroom needs new or better stoppers. Overall it was a decent room and met my needs.
