The courts were quiet, nice, clean, historic, neat, a real unique place to stay. I would definitely go back again and stay in this motel. Had a home feel to it It was quite an enjoyable experience, far beyond just a place to lay my head.

I love "vintage" things, and this old fashioned motor court was right up my alley. I decided to stay in Rockdale since College Station hotels were so expensive and I was on my way to Austin anyway. I'm glad I did. The proprietor was most gracious and helpful when I checked in. The lobby is full of antiques and delicious... More

What a beautiful hotel in an unlikely place!! In the small town of Rockdale we stayed at the Rainbow Courts. It was as lovely as anyplace, anywhere, could ever be!! It features beautiful appointments, large landscaped lawn with Adirondack chairs scattered throughout, and gorgeous landscaping. It is an absolute jewel tucked away off Highway 79 in Rockdale!

We had a late check in and the owners were amazing from the start!! Not only was the customer service superb, but the grounds were pretty, the rooms were clean and quaint, and my bed was soooo comfortable that I actually was able to sleep (doesn't usually happen away from home)! We had to drive an hour to College Station... More

I stayed here for two days for a wedding photos I was taken that weekend and I love it. I loved the feel of home, comfort, and cleanness.The staff was great and the price was also. I plan on staying again and maybe a weekend getaway with my 5 sisters in the schoolhouse room...So much better than a hotel it... More

I am writing this review because we were so happy and pleased. It was wheelchair accessible (my mother), had free snacks, excellent customer service and the room was very comfortable. Eventhough it was in a small town, we felt at ease staying there. More African Americans should stay here. I loved having the full kitchen. It is wonderful.

Stopped because of excellent reviews and they weren't lying!! Rainbow Courts Motel is fantastic. Room was very beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. No signs of musty smells just comfort plus. Large, think and fluffy towels and coffee in the room. Only thing missing was breakfast in bed. Would definitely come back again and recommend this place to every traveler passing... More

"The Rainbow Courts" By far the best stay in a motel or hotel ever. The room was like walking into someone's home. It was so clean and decorated like I've never seen before. The owner and staff are the friendliest people. The ground are kept clean in a nice quiet relaxing atmosphere. The room had a fully furnished kitchen, a... More

This was my first time to visit Rainbow Courts and I was surprisedly in awe. I am visting again in 2015. I have never stayed in any place that the cleanliness of the room was outstanding. The staff was very helpful and courteous. If your in the area you must stay here. Thanks again for the amazing relaxing atmosphere.

Recently I had the opportunity to spend the weekend at Rainbow Courts Motel. This is by far the most quaint place I have ever stayed. The love that Joan and Dan has for their motel which has been passed down in 2 generations, shows in the care you receive and in the cleanliness and décor of the rooms. The Motel... More
