Carefree Inn Houston Medical Center
Ranked #346 of 517 Hotels in Houston
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I have to travel to Houston frequently for medical purposes and hoped for a great experience so I could support a mom & pop business. Not the case. I felt very unsafe. There are much nicer places with much safer atmospheres for not much more money. Lesson learned for me. Never again...

Room Tip: If you do decide to risk it, my suggestion is do not accept a room that has a bench outside the door...

We have been staying at the Carefree Inn on a regular basis for nearly two years. We are always welcomed by name. We are treated as friends not just customers. The shuttle to the Cancer Center is a lifesaver. The rooms are clean and any problem that we have discovered has been dealt with promptly. We are happy with the rates. There are two fast food restaurants and a Golden Corral within easy walking distance. We intend to keep using the services at Carefree as long as we are traveling to Houston. If you need a place to stay in Houston I highly reccomend Carefree Inn Medical Center.

WoW, what a staff that goes out of there way to accomodate their guests. I missed my shuttle to the airport and the owner of the hotel drove me to the airport 45 minutes away. The rooms are cozy, parking is plentiful and the breakfast is awesome. Will visit again on ny next business trip from NY next month> :-)

I have no complains. This hotel ranking should go higher and higher. The most friendly staff and clean rooms, clean property, awesome breakfast yummy waffle.
Shuttle on time for me to go to my doctor. Rates super cheap. What else people want and looking for. I am sure people writing bad reviews are liaring, and are people from other hotel.
Because I and my family didn't have problem everytime I stayed there. Stay at care free inn and meet sophia. The texas girl. She will came you happy.

I've been staying at the carefree off and on for over a year since being in Houston, the rooms are spacious and extremely clean. The staff are so accommodating its like something you would see at a five star hotel. Very convenient to be everything. I would totally recommend to anyone that needs a home away from home, look no farther than the carefree inn. Ryan H

This hotel is excellent and management and staff provided a wonderful customer service. I ended in this hotel by pure chance as it's my first trip to Houston for Business. The room was nice, clean and comfortable, a cosy reception area and a homy kitchen. The staff always went out of their way to help and assist and price extremely reasonable.

Thank you to all at the carefree for a warm and wonderful experience. I will certainly recommend to business colleagues, friends and family.
