We come in to Houston at least once a month for medical at MD Anderson. The Carefree Inn has been our home away from home. They give a discount if you are a patient, and there is a shuttle back and forth although we did not use it. The rooms are nice and homey, very clean. That's what I like... More

Being Memorial Day Sunday and later in the evening than anticipated, we saw this motel and decided to rest our heads there to get an early start on Monday morning back home. Location wise it was great, next to anything and everything in the Medical center area and close to the NGR park where we were earlier in the day.... More

Based on price and good reviews at the time, we booked a room for 2 nights to be near the Medical Center. Desk staff was pleasant but that's the only positive statement we can make. Motel is rundown and sorely lacking in the room furnishings, bathroom, and "breakfast". Desk clerk agreed to let us cancel the 2nd night after spending... More

You pay what you get for. This is a cheap motel-type establishment within walking distance to the NRG Football stadium. My wife and I stayed here when Houston hosted the final four and we had no qualms with our experience. We realized when we booked our rooms, that the rooms would be dated and perhaps not the nicest of places.... More

Carefree Inn is close to the center of the city and it is really good if you're on a budget. My friend and I stayed there two nights and found it very comfortable and clean and reasonably priced. Don't expect anything fancy from breakfast; just a lot of donut holes and powdered juice. Oh and another awesome thing...you'll love the... More

This is an absolute dump. We stayed here during BBQ cook-off. The rooms are very outdated. The rooms smelled like moth balls, which the desk attendant confirmed they put moth balls in the air conditioning/heat unit. Really, who wants to smell moth balls all weekend. The pillow cases smelled. They had no blankets on the bed, we had to ask... More

This was a standard roach motel for me. I stayed in Houston for 3 nights and paid 179$ after taxes and fees, so for 60$ a night it was a good deal money-wise.
