Escape from the traditional. An award winning architect designed this amazing B&B. Eight rooms, great amenities such as an expobar espresso machine, guest office, guest kitchen, and self-serve laundry as well as the industry standards: wireless internet and cable TV. Our two top-shelf rooms have their own private floors with whirlpools for 2 and large balconies. The Cayman/Chickadee is a two-room suite with a shared bath; the Mod rooms are on the bottom floor with street-level entrances. We serve a full breakfast. Enjoy fresh smoothies, caramel pecan rolls, streusel coffee cake, local eggs, 10 grain waffles, etc. We love to cook!! Close to Menil Museum, Rothko Chapel, Medical Center, Downtown and the Galleria.

Lisa is always very accommodating, and the free breakfast is really great (fresh fruits, made to order omelettes, breads, cereal, etc.). We always stay here when we are in Houston.

Modern B&B rents houses off-site as well as rooms at the inn. I booked a house as I needed a place to stay on the eve of my move to Houston that could accommodate me, my parents and my cat, until the movers arrived in the morning to unload the moving truck. Ended up staying in a charming home on Sabine. Moving, in general, is a daunting task, but having such a lovely place to stay for the night, along with the exceptional service and concern of the staff, made the transition smoother. I have stayed at the main B&B location on a previous trip, and that was delightful, as well. I can't thank Modern B&B enough for making me feel welcome on my first night in a new city, and will certainly be sending friends and family their way when they come to visit me.

The next time I return to Houston, I will certainly stay at Modern B&B. They are so much more relaxing and suitable than a big chain hotel.

The Modern B&B was great. Found it relatively easy to get to and was located in a great neutral area. There was a record store just down the street as well as plenty of places to eat or snag a tasty beverage. One of the highlights was the Menil Art Galleries that were only a few blocks from the bed and breakfast. That made for a great bike ride to these awesomely unique galleries and a nice relaxing lunch at the LowBrow. Lisa, Brandi and the other two women were very kind and helpful each day we were there. Complimentary snacks, drinks and little odds and ends (amenities) were at your reach at all hours. The breakfast was delicious and there was more than enough to go around. I enjoyed the non intrusive aspect of It too. They were never up in your business and always were available to help when needed. It was clean and well decorated and even had a record player in the guest kitchen side. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
