Motel 6 Houston NRG Stadium, formally Reliant Stadium is located off I-610 near NRG Stadium home of the Houston Texans, and the Houston Medical Center. All modern rooms with WiFi for a nominal fee. An outdoor pool open year round, and coin laundry.
Pros: Price was cheap. Room was very large and surprisingly clean. Location was convenient. Cons: The neighborhood wasn't the best. The customer service could have been a little better (but the staff were also understaffed and poorly trained, so not necessarily their individual fault). Furnishings were sparse but adequate.
Cons: not enough parking, expensive internet access.
Smells like potPros: I suppose the best thing about it was the location. It's about a mile walk to reliant stadium, which was nice for the Houston Rodeo.Cons: "Non-smoking" room smelled like pot and had cigarette burns in the comforter.
