Joan & Dan, the innkeepers of this fabulous establishment are among the very best I've had the privilege of meeting. Upon my arrival upon a dark and almost stormy night, Joan told me they had upgraded my accommodations to the Garden Room, a spacious and lovely free-standing cottage, with a comfortable kingsize bed, small galley kitchen with a working antique...

This lovely family owned and operated motel is said to be the oldest in Texas along with historical significance. The hospitable owners have done a magnificent job of restoring the cottage and the surroundings. My husband stayed here for a business week and I joined him for one evening. He so enjoyed his stay with all the comforts of home... More

While researching unique motels, I read about the Rainbow Courts and hoped to one day find an excuse to visit. We visited our daughter at A&M for the weekend, and decided we'd make the hour drive to Rockdale and give the Rainbow Courts a try. I was so excited to stay in the Schoolhouse, the biggest of their rooms, which... More

It has just been over a week since my husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this wonderful piece of heaven. We had booked a King Room but upon arrival was told by Kim (front desk) and the owners that they wanted to upgrade our stay - (NO EXTRA CHARGE) to the Carriage House in honor of our anniversary.

This was a late night decision as I was driving from Canyon Lake, Texas to Marshall, Texas. I knew I wouldn't make it all the way as I got a very late start. Close to 10p.m., I came upon Rockdale and stopped on the outside of town. Pulled up trip advisor on my phone and looked at my options. Not... More

Looking for a little getaway for my wife and mines anniversary. We found the Rainbow Courts and couldn't believe what a gem we found. First, the owners are top notch! They offered us an upgrade because it was our anniversary! They have a kuerig machine in the lobby, so at anytime go in and have a quality cup of coffee.... More

We came to rainbow courts to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We stayed in their smallest available room. It was so cute, clean and cozy. We loved the little office that had wonderful homemade treats and lots of snackies. We asked if we could be shown some of the other rooms to get ideas for our next anniversary. So she showed...

I had the occasion to be in Rockdale, TX on business recently. I chose Rainbow Courts based on outstanding recommendations from several of my clients. What a hidden treasure!! The staff was courteous and welcoming. The cottage was warm and inviting. It was so clean and comfy. I had planned to stay one night and then relocate closer to my... More

We were in the area for a funeral and needed a place to stay. The Rainbow Courts Motel was the only one that had good reviews on the internet, so we decided to try it out. The owners are so interesting and told us about the history of the motel and surrounding property that has been in their family for... More
