“Fabulous kitchen, with lots of options.”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

This little Inn on the corner of a highly busy intersection, was quite quaint. The manager Denise, was fabulous, so helpful, and personable. She went out of her way to help us do anything we asked and even those things we didn't even ask for.

The kitchen in the main area was wonderful for breakfast, lots of choices and things that were easy to make. We left each day feeling like we had a good breakfast that saved us money at a regular breakfast place.

The shuttle service was a godsend for us, saved on parking and gasoline costs and the general hassle of traffic.

The one thing that I would have liked to see was the actual rooms be upgraded a bit nicer, they looked cheesy. The curtains did not block out the light, so we had to put up a blanket that we had in our vehicle. Also, the actual parking spots next to the rooms, were so small that unless you had a small economy car, you would have to take up two parking spots, or park in the back of the hotel. Unsafe because of vandals, and having to walk in the dark area is unsafe as well..

Overall, I would rate Carefree Inn as very good, and I would stay there again. Many thanks to the manager, Denise who was so nice, like dealing with a family member.

Room Tip: Call ahead and ask questions before you book.

The people at the frontdesk were really nice and they gave me good service. The room was clean and everything about it was nice. The bed was comfortable and it really made me feel like I was home in my room. Also the breakfast was delicious. I now know where to go when I need a place to stay at and that I would have good service and also that I won´t miss home.

rundown, seedy old motel, mold all over the bathroom, no blanket (had to ask for one), threadbare towels and sheets. Wife wouldn't stay..no refund offered. Candlewood Inn is right next door for $10 more a much better room.

Great service, very friendly staff, they went out of their way (shuttle service) to drive me to my conference location back and forth, very safe and clean rooms, apparently it was recently renovated, close by restaurant (many)

The TV signal was poor and the air condition was loud other than that its Excellent for its category as IN or Motel .. its not a Hotel

I would go back again

I was in Houston for about a month and the location was really convenient to the highways and cities, and the staff courteous and professional. Would definitely recommend.

The rooms are a little small, but they are very clean without smelling like cleaner. The beds were very nice. The staff are very friendly.
