Truly felt the like home feeling as soon as I stepped into the lobby area. Check in was fast. I also like the large selection of nearby food establishment. I was referred here by a friend and am glad I choose to stay here while my apartment is getting ready.

The hotel is pretty nice for a local hotel without the big corporation backing. However the front desk is not run very well and they overbooked and messed up our reservations. Not very helpful at all and didn't really try to make it right.

The hotel was clean, would have rated higher had they not screwed up our reservations. The location is fine, it's a clean area, felt perfectly safe. Easy drive to the downtown area. Probably would have given a 4 or 5 if not for the service issues. Clean and cheap, if that's what you need this is the place for you.

So thankful that I found this place! The mini fridge in my room and kitchen in the lobby area was a perfect solution to save money. I think this is one of the best choices for a college student who needs a quick place to stay and keep their healthy routine. Though the variety of places to eat around made it quite tempting to buy dinner.

We really did not know what to expect but we were not disappointed at all. The service was excellent and the people were great! We had an issue when we initially checked in with our room not being very clean. The front desk person immediately gave us another room and even came up to inspect the new room. Other then that, everything was great.

The rooms are nice with a unique decor. This is not exactly a fancy or elegant place, but it is definitely adequate and in a great location. It is located just off of highway 610 and on a main strip with a host of places to shop and eat. We stayed 4 nights and the place seemed to be very quiet. I recommend this place to anyone who is on a budget but can't do motel 6.

Oh, I must comment on the other amenities. The microwave and refrigerator in our room was very helpful. There is also a kitchen area fully stocked with pots, pans and utensils for guest use. We were able to use this are and reduce of cost buying food from restaurants.

We are very thankful the Motel 6 across street was full, this place is just like home! Clean comfortable and quiet. Beds are so soft you dont even remember your in a motel. Refrigerator microwave and large television. Staff very friendly and helpful. We find very few rooms like this who also are pet friendly or have truck parking. We will definitely return.

My daughter and I stayed for a week at the Carefree Inn before she went back to college in the area.

PROS:

1) Price was less than $60 per night
2) Great central location to shops and restaurants and freeway
3) Rooms and bathrooms are super clean.
4) Staff is friendly and helpful
5) You can park right in front of the door to your room if you're on the first floor
6) Quiet inside the room
7) Plenty of room for storing luggage

CONS:

1) During peak traffic, it's a little hard getting out of the parking lot
2) AC cycles on and off so if you're a light sleeper, earplugs are recommended

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have easy access. They don't have an elevator so if you're on the...
