This is an absolute dump. We stayed here during BBQ cook-off. The rooms are very outdated. The rooms smelled like moth balls, which the desk attendant confirmed they put moth balls in the air conditioning/heat unit. Really, who wants to smell moth balls all weekend. The pillow cases smelled. They had no blankets on the bed, we had to ask...

This was a standard roach motel for me. I stayed in Houston for 3 nights and paid 179$ after taxes and fees, so for 60$ a night it was a good deal money-wise. Location in the medical center is great - 10 mins from Rice Village, where I like to shop, and about 15 mins from the Galleria. WiFi was...

This hotel did not meet our expectations. We read reviews on the hotel that made it sound better, but unfortunately, the facilities in the room were breaking, the staff were not knowledgable, and the housekeeping didn't care about the do not disturb signs. We stayed for a week, but on the fourth day housekeeping came to the room and told...

I gave it four stars not because it is a four star motel but more for the bang for your buck. Yes. The decor is funky, tacky and 70ish..the shower drips and sometimes the toilet runs for no reason. The room comes equipped with a small fridge, a decent size freezer, microwave and coffee maker. Tub and shower are old,...

We travel to Houston a LOT for medical reasons. This was the first and LAST time we stay at the Care Free Inn (medical center). The first 2 rooms they put us in had NON WORKING LOCKS on the doors!!!! Some of the rooms have 1/8" thick plexiglass windows that are just screwed into the wall. NOT SECURE AT ALL....

We stay over night for 2 days. They have a service for drop off and pick up. We went to Texas Children's hospital for transplant kidneys. So maybe we will come back again by here to Carefree Inn, when they call us about ready a surgery for a transplant kidney.
