Ok so technically,I donít know if this is a city of Houston thing or a Harris county thing, but technically the owners of a motel/hotel cannot rent by the hour. The way they get around this is by renting in two-hour blocks.


Your larger more well known hotels do not usually do this but your everyday motels do. So when renting hourly you will get two hours for usually $20-$25. From there you can add single hours if you need more time. Just remember, a lot of these places charge $40-$65/night. So if you get two hours and at the end of that time decide to rent two more hours, you will have paid the nightly rate for just four hours time. If you wish to rent for four hours, in order to get a discount, you must ask for a four hour block of time from the beginning. Another thing is that these places are very strict in the amount of people in each room. Whether it be hourly or nightly the maximum amount of people per room is two per bed. There will usually be a $20/person visitor fee(if they even allow visitors).
So to answer your question,lol, yes,there are many hourly motels in Houston/Harris county

Think about this: if you go to an hourly rate motel, would you trust the linens on the bed to be clean?

If you are sleeping with a person who will go with you to an hourly rate motel, would you trust them to be clean?

Considering the condition of the sheets after a two hour rental, I think you can rest assured they are changed.

In Latin countries everyone lives with their parents until they marry, so hourly places are pretty common. Just a practical solution to an obvious need. What's the big deal?

I have also heard of the Palace Inns serving this kind of demand. I am not a prude, but have never stayed in such an establishment and I would be concerned about cleanliness. However ... come to think of it, mainstream hotels may not always be as clean as we assume.

Something related: while visiting Japan years ago, a friend pointed out the so-called "love hotels" there. (Many actually had signage that said "Love Hotel".) Once alerted, I noticed them all over. If you're curious, look up "love hotels' on Wikipedia. According to that source, its a really big business there and also in other countries.

Very true. People often think about the unsavory activities, but an hourly hotels are often used by business people, who after long hours of travel use them to shower and freshen up before their first meeting of the day.
There are websites you might want to to consider:
www.Getaroom.com
or
www.DayUse.com
Lots of participating hotels are four and five stars, and I am sure they offer high standards.

I'm sure there's hourly motels in portions of the Northside, NW Houston around the Antoine corridor, etc. South Park has one on MLK.
