"4.5***** Star Hotel with 2.2 ***Star Fee"
The Hotel from the outside does not seem much, but the interior and services are comparable to a five star hotel. What I look for in an hotel is Cleanliness and Comfort, this hotel has both. In terms of facilities, its got refrigerator, microwave and TV (not flat). It is spacious and gives room for those with children. I will recommend this hotel to […] anybody, does not matter your status. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"not far from medical center"
I go to md Anderson monthly, and have tried many low cost motels. While this place wasn't terrible, I probably won't stay there again. There are better places for the price, but I needed a last minute room. On a very hot and humid Houston night, I had to search for my room, could not find it, and had to go down to the desk to get the location. I was […] told it was in an "alcove" which means a very dark hallway. After finding the room in the dark, I discovered my key card did not work. Back down to the office to get it activated. The hall light did come on during the night and put a lot of unwanted light in my room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not much of a breakfast"
breakfast a disappointment and room needed to be updated but shuttle was goodGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by CareFree Inn Dear Sir/ Madam, I appreciate your review, I am glad you liked our complimentary shuttle to the medical center. As for the rooms we are in a renovation process, and for the breakfast we are working on adding to our selection. Thank you again for lodging with us. Sincerely,
"It's the little things"
The hotel is situated right off of the Loop, but the route is somewhat circuitous to actually get to the building. All in all, it was ok for a brief stay, but little things turned me off: not having a hairdryer; having a coffee pot in the room but no coffee; the timer switches on the lights; and the very minimal water pressure in the shower that took […] too long to warm up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by CareFree Inn Dear Ang, I would like to thank you for taking time to review the hotel. I would also like to apologize for not having a hairdryer in the room, the water pressure, lights. As for the coffee it is actually at the front desk, we do this to preserve the freshness and to not have it go to waste. Regards,

"Great Value. Refurbished Motel a bit wrinkly."
Updated well, except for the bath/shower which is in need of a rip out and replace. Very friendly staff. For what I paid it was a nice quiet place to sleep and a great value overall.Genuine Expedia guest review

"It worked for what we needed"
Adequate. Continental breakfast was too light. Room was super hot when I arrived, took a long time to cool off. Front desk staff was helpful. We needed some place quick and it worked for the night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

After the first night we changed rooms due to rust in the bath tub, could not control temp of water and the TV had a terrible picture. The next night was better, but the Hotel is old and run down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by CareFree Inn Dear Scott, I appreciate your review, I am glad we were able to correct the issue. I assure you that maintenance is working hard to get this issue resolved, and we are also working to renovate the hotel.
"I arrived at night...could not see the surrounding"
I was very pleasantly surprised with the ambience and the free shuttle service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by CareFree Inn Dear JoAnne, We are very happy you were satisfied with our free shuttle service to the medical center, also I would like to thank you for taking time to review our hotel we truly appreciate your feedback.
"Meets Basic Needs"
If you are looking for an affordable place just to stay for a night or two, this is it. The building is in dire need of renovation but I was provided with everything I needed. The free shuttle service takes you anywhere you want to in the medical center, the person at the front desk was very open to answering any questions that I had and the room was […] comfortable. With regards to food access, I liked having the buffet restaurant right next to the hotel and a community kitchen (even though I did not use it). The breakfast was disappointing since there was not any milk or eggs, which I think are basic things a hotel should always have but I was happy to have the free breakfast anyway. It met all of my needs - service, comfort, breakfast, wi-fi, and transportation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by CareFree Inn Dear VJ, I am glad you were able to relax at our hotel before your surgery, and thank you for taking time to review the hotel.
I did not like the hotel. The hotel did not look like the pictures advertised on hotels.com. I would not recommend this place. The power was shut off for about 45 minutes. Not worth the $80.00 that I paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Main Word is CHEAP."
room was small and color choice was dark. the microwave and the coffee maker were present in the room but there was no outlet to plug them into unless you moved them in the vanity area and set them on the floor. there was no counter space to set them on. there was a small slit in the wall of the tub enclosure that water had apparently gotten into. the […] price for the room was good thanks to the discount for multiple night stay and non-refund policy. the walkways and stairways were dark due to non-working lighting in these areas. convenient to MD Anderson with free shuttle service. The continental breakfast was not much of a breakfast. Just cereal, juice, milk and waffles the times we tried to use it. Thank goodness there is a Whataburger right next door. Overall I guess you almost get what you pay for. If you are looking for cheap this is the place. Won't be back if the need arises to go back to Houston. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by CareFree Inn Dear Sir/ Madam, Thank you for taking time to review the hotel. I apologize for the lighting issue and I assure you maintenance is taking care of this as well as the slit on the wall, and I am glad you liked the complimentary shuttle service. Lastly, we are also working on providing a variety for our complimentary breakfast, and again thank you for your review and we are working on providing our guest the best service.
The room was adequate, could use a little more updating inside room. The outside looked nice. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Shuttle service saved us from the expense parking at the hospital.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
The hotel itself is fine. The room was clean. It’s designed to look country, I think the smell other reviewers talked about is from the wood lining the walls in the room. There are other occupants that seem like they live there, but it didn’t seem to be an issue for me. The location is difficult to get to but is close to the medical center. Call the […] hotel directly for a better rate; I heard them give much lower rates than mine more than once. Also, do not expect flexibility, the room you book is what you will get, end of story.

"Great place to stay..."
The only bad thing about this hotel was the location. The intersection to enter or exit the hotel was bad, it was heavy traffic and wasn't the easiest getting in or out. But, the staff was exceptional, even when i couldn't get into my room. The housekeeping was exceptional as well. I didn't get to enjoy breakfast, but from the lobby view, the breakfast […] area was very clean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was clean, but dated. The shuttle was nice and if going to the medical center, can save you on the parking garage fees. The breakfast is disappointing. Staff is friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Reliant Stadium & places to eat"
The room was small, but comfortable. The TV and furniture were outdated, but functional. The location of plug-ins (for recharging cell phones or computers) were either nonexistent or in awkward places. We had a coffee pot, but nowhere to plug it in at and no coffee was supplied for it. The shower had NO water pressure, so we were forced to take baths. […] The knobs for the hot/cold water did not work. We had to use a screw driver to turn them. On the plus side, the hot water was great and did not run out. We used this hotel to attend the Houston Rodeo. We walked from the hotel to Reliant Stadium, saving us $20 - $30 that they were charging for parking. Despite the few issues we had, we would stay here again as the price for the room was economical and the hotel was close to attractions and several fast food places. It’s a 2 star hotel, so don’t expect 5 star comforts. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close To The Houston Rodeo"
Great location! The only negative is the water temperature. It was either really hot or really cold.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have used this hotel for the same week during the past 2 years. IT is not anything fancy, but it does the trick. The place could use a facelift, but I wasn't in town to stay in my room, so that wasn't a problem. They have a small breakfast are which is convenient. The area isn't great, but I still felt safe. If I could change anything, I would ask […] for a more comfortable bed, but it was only 2 nights and that wouldn't keep me from staying again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Decent, clean value hotel close to the med center"
The staff was very nice and helpful. It is an older hotel but was convenient for our stay to get to the medical center area. Getting out on Main Street can be hard depending on traffic flow and time of day. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very clean! I was impressed. More expensive hotels aren't as clean as my room was here. It was a great […] stay for the price. I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by CareFree Inn Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for your review, we truly appreciate it. I am glad your stay at Carefree was to your liking and we hope to see you in the near future.
We would not recommend staying here. Our room had an odor. The room also did not have a working smoke detector. The air conditioner did not work. The bathroom was unacceptable. The toilet seat was too small for the toilet. The tub had cracks and mildew in it. We were not pleased with our room what do ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

this place is horrible, looks like a motel in the ghetto and way way over priced.the "fitness room" is a total joke. i have spent half $$ on better hotels in the same area recently. first and last timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel if needing to go Cheap"
Kind and helpful staff is what made this stay bearable. Room wasn't truly uncomfortable but upkeep of room was not great. Lot of cheap "fixes" to room. Drywall issues, just very poor job of keeping things looking good. But they were good about cleaning the rooms so that helped too.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by CareFree Inn Dear Zach, Thank you for your review, and I apologize for the minor and drywall issue, maintenance is working hard to update the hotel. Also, thank you for the compliment our staff works hard to provide top service to our guests.
"Best little inn around!"
OMG - great spot - reasonable and the owner a doll. Even the shower was strong! Try it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for Hospital Visits"
Yes, this is an older structure. BUT, the room was perfectly clean, the bathroom was spotless, the bed was clean and comfortable, and the air conditioner was cold. There was a tv, coffee maker, fridge, and microwave. Free wi-fi access. Best of all, it was five minutes from the hospital and half the cost of other hotels. If you are looking for vacation […] amenities, you might want to pay for it elsewhere. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, affordable, convenient place near the hospital, this is it!

"This was a dump of a hotel"
This was dump of a hotel. It only goes to prove, you only get what you pay for. The room was ugly. On one side of me, I had an African American couple that argued for two straight nights loud into the night. And on the other side, there was a dog. The people who stayed at the hotel looked sleazy. I don't know if they were staying long-term or what, […] but I would not recommend staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for the price"
Pretty rustic, but not bad for the price. The only exit being on Main Street is a hassle in the morning. The continental breakfast also wasn't bad for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close to Medical Center, but not so nice"
First room smelled of smoke and one of the beds looked like it was just slept in. The hotel staff were nice and moved me to a different room. Second room didn't smell like smoke, but it was not very clean. Rooms are small. Bathroom was dirty . . . I put a towel down in the tub to shower because it didn't look clean enough to have my bare feet touching […] it. Hotel has not been very well kept up. Shuttle service was nice, but they told me it only ran on the hour, so I had to leave at 6am to make sure that I would be at the medical campus in time for my 7:10 appointment. Personally, I would not stay there again. I would rather cough up the extra cash to get a better room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Did not get any sleep"
Price wise very affordable. If a good night sleep is important to you spend the 30-40 bucks more, what sounded like moving furniture and banging pipes and the traffic kept me up all night. Staff was very nice and courteous. Breakfast was continetal, but satisfying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This really old hotel gave me the creeps. The outside has had some facelift but the rooms are awful. Layer upon layer of old paint. Stingy with the towels. And bring your own clock because there is not one in that room full of tattered old furniture.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly, clean, practical and good value."
I stayed at Care Free Inn for three nights while seeing doctors in the medical center. I found the hotel basic but adequate for what I wanted, and good value for money. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There are all the services one could want for a long stay, if necessary, including access to a full kitchen shared by all guests. This could […] save a lot of money all by itself. This hotel is not part of chain, and has a family-run feel to it. The room was dark, and the decor was simple and a bit rough. However the bed and bath were fine, and in-room wi-fi was excellent. The hotel was not that easy to find on the first pass, and getting out by car was tricky - especially at rush hour. Parking is adequate. There are a couple of fast-food and cheap buffet eating places one can walk to. Not too far away are supermarkets, pharmacies, and other restaurants. The neighborhood feels run down, but safe enough in the day. There is a big freeway nearby, but I was not bothered by noise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not bad for a motel"
I needed a bed to sleep in for my one day travel. There was free breakfast (small assortment of fruit, cereal, and 2 types of donuts, plus waffle batter and eggs were in the fridge and you would make them yourself). The hotel was quaint looking. The rooms have hardwood floors which was awesome because Houston humidity combined with a standard motel […] wall A/C unit that does not dehumidify equals nasty mildewy rugs. I gave the place 3 stars because the room maintenance could have been kept up a bit better (ex: rusting tub drain). Also, upon entering the room, there was a slight odor as if a previous tenant had a pet that piddled on the wood floor and it was not completely cleaned up. Not overpowering as it went away in a few minutes, but enough to downgrade a star. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
