We had seen the high reviews for this hotel on TripAdvisor and figured this was going to be a great value hotel near the Medical Center. The visit started with the sink appearing to be dirty. We later found out that water was coming back out from the drain and was leaving some debris...the water stuck in the sink would... More

Only a few complaints - room was very small, there is no drain stop in the bathtub if you want to take a bath & water came out yellow at first (let it run a few minutes), and there was not a hair dryer but the ladies at the front desk gave us one to use. Other then that it... More

Room was clean, staff was courteous. Pictures on line very deceiving! Towels were very thin and NOT bath size at all and no hand towels. Had to use wash towels and the didn't have any to shower with. No outlet for the fridge and I had medication that needed to be kept cold. No Wi-Fi reception in our room, we... More

They are super nice and friendly. It is not a fancy palce. However, i doubt with the price that they offer, you can find a cleaner and more convenient palce I did not like my room when I first arrived, so i asked them to change it. They were super nice and showed me 3 other rooms to choose one.... More

Unfortunately, I booked some medical appointments before realizing that the Offshore Technology Conference was scheduled at Reliant Center at the same time - 100,000+ participants. So, virtually every hotel within 20 miles of the medical center area was either booked or had ridiculous prices ($175 for a La Quinta!). Despite misgivings, I did find a room at the Carefree for...

Save yourself the trouble of having to call the credit card company for a chargeback and just stay somewhere else. We booked three nights at Carefree Inn, because it had a reasonable medical rate and it looked nice enough on the website. We had been waiting to hear back from the American Cancer Society on deeply discounted rooms, and were... More

Rooms are pretty filthy. There is a large mold spot on the ceiling above the shower. Cords stocking out from TV are pretty janky. Bad picture. I think we will survive the night, but wouldn't recommend it to others.

This motel is dirty. The furniture was badly stained, the picture in the room had cracked glass, the bath tub was stained/dirty and the rate was ridiculous for the condition of this motel. I did not feel safe given the people loitering about the property. The tremendous potholes in the parking lot are more like quarries. I did not think... More
