Recent guest reviews

While this isn't the nicest place in Houston it is way cheaper than other places. Beds are comfortable and it is clean what more can you ask for!

The room was adequate. It was good for us because we only slept there. The room was small. The maid service was good. It was quiet and the location was great for us. It needs some upgrades in the bathroom fixtures etc. Parking was good. The beds need to be replaced.

Hotel was located far away from everything, in an area where we didn't feel safe. The hotel was very run down, room had an awful smell and felt dirty, bathroom and hall had lights on a timer, Internet didn't work and reception staff wasn't very helpful. I would never stay there again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

The hotel is ok, their breakfast was just a joke, I wouldn't call that breakfast. You have to cook for yourself. The cereals in the jar and baby muffins, please I did not have any breakfast with them throughout my stay.

very basic, good location, nice staff, good value for money, clean but outdated and a bit smelly.

Small hotel in a busy street. The room is small and old, when you open the door, you can smell something strong, the smell stays in your clothes. The WIFI when connected has limited excess whatever that means, and I couldn't get on any website. When I called front desk, she said she doesn't know. The continental breakfast consists of coffee, Tang juice, three type of sugary cereals, a couple of apples, some small doughnuts, some slices of white bread, and a waffle maker that took forever to make. I don't know how anybody can rate this hotel with 3 stars as advertised, I would give it 1 or 0. It is that bad.

good location, good price. very very basic, nothing fancy, goood staff

Very nice place. Rooms are very clean love the kitchen. Close to restaurants.

We were told not to book here, but we are very happy we did. Very nice rooms and very friendly and helpful employees. When we didn't want housekeeping because we had our dogs they were fine. Was there a week and no problems.

Breakfast was lacking. Transportation was excellent. Floors could have been cleaner.

Stayed 2 weeks for medical center treatments. Clean,friendly,microwave,fridge. Best value near medical center.

This hotel is old but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was so so but the employees were friendly. Considering the price, I would probably stay there again. If you want amenities, find another hotel.

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.

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.

Bed blanket smell weird, front desk personal not helpful at all. I when to the meineke bowl, the location was great for my trip, but I would look for another option my next trip.

The staff was very friendly and accomadating. The room was also very clean, even though the interior was a little outdated.

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

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!

It is a very nice and cheap hotel and it's very cost-effective!

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.
