Affordable and Clean Motel Dec 12, 2009
This is the perfect motel for budget travelers especially if you are staying 1 week or more. This motel is good for those that want to have more privicy and comfort than a hostel but don't want to pay high daily rates of a hotel. The motel has daily rates (currently about $40 per day including the 17% tax!) but these rates will be greatly discounted for a 7 day stay. Expect to pay less than $200 for a 7 day stay as of the time this review was written including the steep 17% city tax. Call for current rates. Several of my Merchant Marine co-workers have stayed here and have been happy with the motel. Many of the rooms have been recently upgraded with new flooring, paint, and major bath upgrades. The rooms are medium to small size but enough room for two. Beds are comfortable king size and larger rooms are available with two queen beds for a slightly higher rate. Each room has a mini refrigerator, microwave, TV, DVD player, radio/CD player, and individual heat and A/C. There is 24 hour security and the parking area is well lighted. The grounds are well cared for and clean. A major grocery store, Fiesta, including hot food is within a 10 minute walk. The Houston Metro bus number 33 comes twice an hour during the day and more often in the morning and evening and will get you to almost any location in the city. The motel is very quite except for an occassional distant train horn.

Affordable Motel in Town Dec 12, 2009
This Tweety’s Diamond Inn is located at 9998 South Main Street in the southwest part of Houston. There are a whole chain of these Tweety’s Motels and Tweety’s convenience stores in Houston.

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 Tweety’s 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 3 miles north of the hotel. And 4 miles north is Houston’s renowned Museum District and Hermann Park.

To reach this Tweety’s Motel 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 south side of I630 and travel about 1 block south on S Main St. It is a low priced motel and the grounds are well kept. The stated rates are $45 per night for a single or double with lower daily rates for a longer stay. The hotel has no restaurant but there are several restaurants on S Main in both directions.
