Americas Best Value Inn-Texas Medical Center Reliant Park Houston Reviews

Affordable, Good Location Dec 12, 2009
The Parkview Motel is located on South Main Street in the southwest area of central Houston directly across from the west side of Reliant Park and Reliant Stadium. Houston is easy to get around in considering it is billed as the fourth largest city in the U.S. Houston is mostly flat terrain and the only large group of high rise buildings is in the central downtown area. A somewhat simplified geographic sketch of Houston is from city center, the city has two highway circles around it. The inner circle is Interstate 630 and the outer circle is Beltway 8. These two circles are bisected by U.S. Highway 59 from northeast to southwest and by Interstate 45 from north central to southeast Houston, the highway to Galveston and the gulf coast. The Parkview Motel is located on South Main Street very near the extreme southwest corner of the Interstate 630 Loop at the Buffalo Speedway/S Main St exit. This area has a number of hotels due to the long time location of the Houston Astrodome. The Astrodome was one of the first sports and convention domes in the US and is still located directly east of Reliant Stadium. The Astrodome is currently not in use but there are plans to turn it into a movie studio. The Astrodome has a long history and a tour can be arranged in the Park offices. The present location of Reliant Stadium was the location for many years of Astros Park, one of the early large amusement parks in this part of the U.S. The motel is also located close to the famed Texas Medical Center complex of hospitals, VA Hospital and Texas Children’s Hospital about 2.5 miles north of the hotel. And 3 miles north is Houston’s renowned Museum District and Hermann Park.

This Parkview Motel is located on S Main Street across from Reliant Park. Coming from the east the exit to take is Buffalo Speedway/ S Main St and coming from the west take the Stella Link exit. After taking either of these exits, travel north on S Main St for about 3/4 miles and the motel will be on the left.

In the past, this motel was a national chain; I think America Suites or something like that but now is a fully independent motel. It is a low priced motel and a little run down but the grounds are fairly well kept. Inside it is not so clean and some of the rooms smell of stale air. The stated rates are $49 per night for a single or double with lower daily rates for a longer stay. The good thing about this motel is that if you are attending an event in Reliant Park it is in walking distance of the park. The hotel has no restaurant but there are several restaurants on S Main in both directions.

Clean Well Maintained Motel Dec 13, 2009
Howard Johnson Express Inn Houston Astrodome / Medical Center is located at 9604 South Main Street in the southwest part of Houston. This motel is one of about 30 in the area.

Houston is easy to get around in considering it is billed as the fourth largest city in the U.S. Houston is mostly flat terrain and the only large group of high rise buildings is in the central downtown area. A somewhat simplified geographic sketch of Houston is from city center, the city has two highway circles around it. The inner circle is Interstate 630 and the outer circle is Beltway 8. These two circles are bisected by U.S. Highway 59 from northeast to southwest and by Interstate 45 from north central to southeast Houston, the highway to Galveston and the gulf coast. This HoJos is located on South Main Street very near the extreme southwest corner of the Interstate 630 Loop at the Buffalo Speedway/S Main St exit. This area has a number of hotels due to the long time location of the Houston Astrodome. The Astrodome was one of the first sports and convention domes in the US and is still located directly east of Reliant Stadium. The Astrodome is currently not in use but there are plans to turn it into a movie studio. The Astrodome has a long history and a tour can be arranged in the Park offices.

And 4 miles north is Houston’s renowned Museum District and Hermann Park.

If your destination is any of the hospitals or clinics in the huge Texas Medical Center complex, this would be a good place to stay especially for a long term stay. The motel has a shuttle to take you back and forth to the medical center.

To reach this HoJos coming from the east on I630 the exit to take is Buffalo Speedway/ S Main St and coming from the west take the Stella Link exit. After taking either of these exits, go to the north side of I630 and travel about 1 block north on S Main St.

The building is an older building but has been well maintained outside as was the inside of the room I saw. The hotel has no restaurant but there are several restaurants nearby.
