About Lisa Thompson

My name is Lisa Thompson. That's me and my boyfriend, Avi in the picture. I'm a realtor, a lawyer, I own/operate a bed & breakfast in Montrose, I work for United Airlines, I manage properties for myself as well as for clients. In short, I'm a workaholic. That doesn't mean I don't know how to have a great time. I love to run with my running club, Bayou City Road Runners, and regularly host a charity yard sale for them out of one of my garages. I love trivia night at The Harp, beer at Valhalla on the Rice University Campus and bingo in the Heights. If you're not sure what to do while you're in Houston just ask me, I'm sure to have a suggestion for any personality type.

Accurate as described, Needed some maintenance and a better cleaning

  • 3 of 5

The property is accurate as described. Driveway is tight getting in and out of property. Also, there is some traffic from the school across the street at drop off and pick up times. Otherwise, the location is pretty good. There were some issues with maintenance and housekeeping was not up to par. Lisa, the property manager, was easily accessible by phone and offered to send someone to re-clean. We declined since we had our dog staying on property with us. She also came over personally to address some of issues (2 light bulbs out, low toilet paper, more towels) but some (cracked window glass and loose vents) had to wait until after our stay to be fixed.

Pleasant stay, would come back

  • 4 of 5

We didn´t get to know Liz, but her associate Gina, who took care of us.

We hadn´t any problem with cleanliness and found everything as advertised.

The property lies in a quiet neighborhood, but near to restaurants, museums and supermarkets, which all can be reached by foot.

We where only two people, though the apartment has space for 4, but I think the only bathroom will be get a little crowded. But considering the relation price - value, this is a great place to stay.

Nice small family accommodation in Houston's museum district

Pleasant accommodation with lots of light and off street parking in a great part of town within walking distance to the museums and restaurants. Lisa is a great host and will happily guide you to the best places in the area.

Good size for a small family, safe location.

  • 2 of 5

Stayed here for a week for house hunting. Moved from CA for work. The actual house is a good 2 bedroom 1 bath size which worked for a small family ( 3adults, 1 child). It is located in a quiet and safe street, walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Huge storage for clothes/luggage. However, not sure what happened but when we checked in after being told that the cleaning lady has finished cleaning, the bathroom was very disappointing. There was smelly black sludge around the sink and the knobs, and the drain in the tub was rusty and didn't look like it was cleaned. There was a foul smell coming out of it. However, after a long cross country move, we just didn't have the energy to tell the landlord to clean it assuming that it would disrupt our sleep and settling in when/if they decided to resolve the issue. The floor was dusty as well and was especially evident when I looked under the couch to look for a toy.

Again, this house is accurately described but cleanliness is important!!!! Especially if you are charging for cleaning fee. Also, the couch could use a little TLC or better yet, replacement as it is extremely saggy and bumpy in some places. It was uncomfortable to sit on.

Customer service could be better, IMO. Out of 7 days of stay, we didn't get a text asking how it's going or if we needed anything. I think it shows how much you care for the level of comfort your guests experience staying at your unit.

I'm a little disappointed that I had to rate it 2 stars because the listing and location are both ideal but maybe make sure to voice out cleanliness concerns when booking.

Owner's Response: Dear guest thank you so much for this feedback. We are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations, how ever we do wish you would have told us about the issues you were having . Our office is just four blocks away and we could have rectified our mistakes. We understand you were tired and wanted to get settled but we would have been more than happy to send the housekeeper over at your connivance. We will try to replace that sofa as soon as possible as we do not stay on premises we do count on our guest for this type of feed back, Good or bad it is always appreciated. We will try to resolve all issues with these property and hope you give us a second chance if you are ever back again in Houston. This is a great location for anyone to stay in especially being walking distance for so many things. Again thank you for this review. All the best from all of us at the Modern B&B.
