Worst I Have Ever Stayed At...Period!

This place was old, run down, and just plain not up to modern hotel standards at all. They brand themselves as a "First Rate Hotel" If they are first, I would hate to see last! First and foremost, I can't remember the last time, if ever, I stayed at a hotel without carpet in the rooms. My floor was an OLD linoleum floor that was cracked in several places. Room was very small and open to the bathroom. The curtain that was hung up appeared as though it had been bought at a garage sale and was paper thin and hard to close. When I first turned on the water in the bathroom it came out brown! There was a door between the sink area and shower but it would not close. The towels were so small that my 3 year old daughter would have been asking for something a little bigger. The shower experience was not good either. Once I made sure that no brown water was going to come out there, I tried to get cleaned up. Let's just say that I had to be pretty nimble on my feet as the water would go from scalding hot to freezing cold. They did have a TV mounted on the wall which I thought might be their only redeeming quality...I was wrong. Although it had well over 300 channels, I think all but 10 were restricted (including CNN, ESPN, and several other mainstream channels). I ended up settling on the Weather Channel...sadly it was the highlight of my stay. The bed was hard and lumpy. They must have had some type of flannel or something else under the bed sheet as I was too hot all night even though the temp in the room was 64. I hope you get the point. This hotel SOMEHOW has some people that have said some good things about it on the internet. I am not nor ever will be one of them.

Thought it was a strip club

The lights are dumb. Figuring out where the stairs are was ridiculous. The bed moved all over the place. The lights were on timers. Tell someone thats the case. Figuring out how to turn on the lights was ridiculous.

Economical Option

Older, remodeled motel. Some rooms more updated than others. Great location near Reliant Arema. Very reasonable price during stock show time. Inadequate water pressure in shower. Staff very helpful during reservation mixup. Continental breakfast ok. Coffee pot in room, but no coffee or tea bags furnished. Tiny motel soaps furnished. Recommend if you value economy over high quality.

Not what I expected

I do not travel a lot so clearly in the future I would only chose 4 or 5 star accommodations. I arrived after dark. 1)There were no lights on inside the room & no light switch. I had to fumble to find a lamp. 2) very poor water pressure. 3) The sheets were so thin I could see the mattress pad underneath. The towels were thin. A whole in the comforter. 4) The mattress was noisy. 5) I chose this hotel because it was very close to Reliant Park. The location is right off of hwy 610. Therefore it was VERY NOISY(roar of hwy & dumpsters being dumped during the night.)

CLOSE TO MED CENTER BUT SIMPLE

Looks somewhat like a ranch, clean, lady at reception friendly and helpful, rooms are are dark, although clean, no special comfort, 2 stars would be more appropriate than 3 stars

Does not know the meaning of CLEAN

One main issue I had with this hotel was the cleaning. It seemed clean when I first entered but I noticed a unused cup on the sink and a soap bar that had clearly been used because it had hair on it. In the shower there was a used package of shampoo. Everything else looked clean so I thought maybe those 3 items were over looked. However the next evening when I came back to the room once again it appeared to have been cleaned because the bed was made but when I looked into the bathroom area those same 3 items were STILL there. So I'm left with are they even cleaning the room at all?? Luckily I only stayed for 2 nights if I had planned to stay longer I would have moved to another hotel..ASAP!

Great place to stay

We stayed CareFree Inn for the first time. This hotel is under renovation and getting to look better. The price is very affordable, and stuffs are very friendly and nice. We enjoyed to stay in this hotel. We spoke to the owner, then we came to know their motivation for this hotel. They are doing very best for patients and caregivers at medical center in Houston, which is great. I am so impressed. The hotel shuttle goes by patient's treatment schedule etc, and kitchen is kinda place to share their experiences and communicate each others. The hotel name is "carefree", that means you do not need to worry anything, but only for your treatment or giving care and cure. I've never seen the hotel like this. I highly recommend this hotel for especially patients and caregivers. Of course it is good for travelers too.
