Made the horrible mistake of visiting College Station the weekend of a football game. We were able to get a room for Friday there, but everything was sold out for Saturday. We were up for an adventure and the reviews were so good we said "why not"? The room was cozy and I wish we stayed another day. We even... More

I've been staying at the Rainbow Courts since my days working with Alcoa in the early 2000's, and I'm never disappointed. Management is friendly and will help with anything you need, the rooms are clean, comfortable and stocked with antiques, and the prices can't be beat. If you're ever in the central Texas area and are looking for a great... More

I read about Rainbow Courts in Rockdale, Texas on TripAdvisor and how it was in rated in the Top 10 smaller motels in the United States. I wanted to surprise my husband with a trip there because his uncle had a small tourist court when he was growing up. I thought it would bring back some great memories! The Rainbow... More

This is my first review, so forgive me if I'm a bit excited but a Rainbow Courts is a one-of-a-kind place that deserves the praise. I debated whether to splurge for the "Garden Room" or a regular king room, as all of them look great online. I went ahead and opted for the Garden Room since it was our first... More

We stayed in the the Carriage House. A full kitchen, walk in shower, Jacuzzi tub and a huge king size bed that was VERY comfortable! The pictures they have up are great but to see it in person is awesome! We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend and had a great time! It was quiet and Dan was an... More

Beautiful place to stay in Central Texas - long time traditional motel that is full of history but has been updated to extremely comfortable. Will stay there every time we visit with family in Rockdale.

I appreciate the staff working with my atypical schedule. They were awesome. Beautiful place with lots of history. Brought back memories of my grandmother's farmhouse. Our room was clean, quiet and private. My wife is already making plans to come back.

Check in was friendly and efficient. Room was comfortable, quiet and quaint. Hope we get to come back someday.The court was a step back in time and the surrounding were quiet and relaxing. We didn't see anybody else for the whole time.

Great little place in Rockdale. Stayed in one of the little cottages - extremely clean and maintained nicely. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Nice, manicured lawns and sitting areas, big trees...wish I could have stayed longer. Will stay here again.

I travel a lot for work (writer/producer medical media) Hotel rooms are nice, but that are all very much alike. If you're on the road a lot, it may take a minute to sleepily ponder the city you're in based on the room. Rainbow Courts is different. When you awaken in this piece of Americana you know that you've experienced... More
