Wingate by Wyndham Bush Intercontinental Airport (Houston, Texas)

3 Case Rating


Location

The hotel is located just off the main noisy highway enroute to airport, other than a few other motel type places there is nothing in the vicinity. About 10-15minute walk gets you to a gas station where you’ll find a Burger King.
There is a complimentary hotel bus which you need to call to pick you up either at airport terminals or main rental car centre. It’s very unpredictable as to when it arrives as its shared with another hotel and is branded as that hotel ‘home wood suites’. They may say 10 minutes every time you call but in reality we waited most times up to 45 minutes. It leave the hotel though on the hour every hour.

Room

The large room was spacious & functional for those on a budget. The large bed was of adequate comfort but small square pillows were odd & was pleased to have my own travel pillow. Either side of bed were bedside tables & small lamps on top. Behind the table though were plug sockets but not so assessable (you have to pull put table).
The room offered a wide arm chair that was comfortable enough to watch TV. This faces the bed on top of an empty set of drawers. Cable TV offered some 22 cable the typical US networks.
A large wide wooden desk is offered of which a helpful power plug unit is on top of which 2 USB & 2 US plugs are on it. The was also a lamp with LAN connection and phone with a comfortable office style chair resulting in a decent work station.
The room offered a cupboard that had a iron & ironing board in it & lap top size easy to use safe- plus many clothes hangers. A mini kitchen is offered next to bathroom with a medium size empty refrigerator, sink , coffee maker plus a few teas.

The bathroom was of typical motel US standard – simple design bath / shower combo but with slight limescale offered on the shower head. They did offer some mini branded amenities of facial soap, shampoo & conditioner, body lotion branded as mineral fusion. Hair dryer & plenty of towels.
Overall the room is definitely functional, but lacking much real ascetically pleasing comfort The decor reminded me of a retirement home, a little dull but is adequate .The main issue is the built in AC/heater it is noisy and just comes on randomly. There is though a fan above the bed. The walls are thin so you can hear all your neighbours activities.

Facilities

There is free wifi in which has many open routers but I initially was on 3rd floor & experienced issues. However once moving to first floor it worked fine.
Catering facilities include a free breakfast of which a simple buffet of waffle making, bacon, scrambled egg plus plenty of cereals, bagels , fruit & breads are offered. Overall adequate but the polystyrene plates are a bit tacky. Food was of ok standard. For other catering options, a room service menu consists of delivery from a Chinese reataurant nearby but also Pizza Hut, Papa Johns & Dominos do deliver.
Leisure facilities include a small pool, more dipping than doing a work out. A very basic small gym and a small convenience store next to reception that offers food for your microwave, cold snacks & bathroom products as well as basic medicine for colds & heartburn etc.

Business facilities include one computer with a printer but it did not work the entire time I was there- at least to connect to Internet.

There is also a small meeting room and also parking is free if you are a guest. The parking is also rented out to travelling passengers so can be full.
Overall though basic a full set of facilities are offered.

Staff

Staff are really nice, helpful with any request with check-in/out being a smooth process with no issues.
Overall this is a budget hotel, but it offers better than a motel, fairly comfortable for cheap budget option near to IAH airport. For less than $70 it was fine but by no means offers anything innovative or enhanced.
