Perfect location for visiting the Johnson Space Center and Kemah Boardwalk. Both are about 10 minutes away (by car) in either direction.
We also stayed here in Aug. 2007 and booked it again for the location and general satisfaction. The free breakfast is pretty good and well-stocked. The pool was a bit dirty, especially the hot tub, but maybe it was a bit early in the season? The only trouble we had was with the laundry facilities. We tried twice to buy the laundry detergent from the machine, but it took our coins without dispensing any product. We asked the woman at the front desk and she said she would see if she could find anything. After waiting about 10 minutes, I went out to see what was going on and found her chatting with someone at the front desk. She said she couldn't find anything - I don't know when she was planning on coming to tell us that. Then she went and found this bottle of heavy-duty industrial cleaner and told us to try that! It's a good thing I could read English because that product was for cleaning toilets, etc. and NOT for clothes. The warning said to use protective clothing and not to get it on your skin. I guess she was trying to be helpful, but that could have ended badly. The next night, the detergent dispenser just had an "out of order" sign on it. I don't know how hard it is to restock that machine. Also, we never seemed to see the same person at the front desk twice - we were there for 3 nights.
