    The staff were so friendly and helpful. Denise was especially sweet, she takes customer care to a whole new level. We booked for one night, but after the excellent service, we cancelled other reservations and stayed two additional nights. Thanks Carefree Inn for all you did and do. The Twins

    Very friendly staff. Kept the room clean. This hotel is very close to the stadium and it is within walking distance of a few restaurants. It has good air conditioning It worked well for my friend and I.

    Overall the room and bathroom is a tad small but you get what you pay for. The rates at the carefee inn were lower than anywhere else and I have no complaints about it.

    It was a cozy place.

    They did not leave any towels or coffee in the room and the breakfast wasnt what we thought it would be.

    Room was not clean there was some kind of food left in freezer that has been there no telling how long. Plumbing stoped up so they bring me a plunger, rather than call maintance. Bums sleeping in the stair wells. Internet was real slow,

    I loved that the staff was so courteous and friendly. I was visiting Rice University, and the complimentary shuttle was a life-saver, as they took us straight to the admissions office! Thank you so much Carefree!

    It was a little busy in the morning to cross the street, but other than that, it was pretty good for the money!

    The staff was friendly and the price was great. Unfortunately if you are looking for more that just a place to sleep at a very affordable price then this is not the hotel for you. Continental breakfast was cheerios and tang. Bed was very uncomfortable. Given one towel and one small "tear open" package of shampoo. Outdoor entry which was a little scary for the neighborhood. This hotel is located near Houston's Medical district and appears to be more suitable for patients or families requiring a low rate because they are staying a long time. Certainly not a hotel for families.

    They have a great staff at the inn, very helpful and super friendly. The room was OK, clean and not too small. The nearby Freeway is cool for getting to the hotel quickly and although I could hear it in my room, with my pair of ear muffs I heard nothing and slept wonderful. Breakfast could have been a little bit more varying but it was OK too. The guests laundering room is equipped with an absolutely fine working washing machine and a dryer. All in all you get great value for what you pay. I will stay there again if coming back to Houston.

    Close to Reliant Center

    This place was not what I was expecting. I thought it would be a nice stay so that I could enjoy a gorgeous weekend with my girlfriend and it turned out to be horrible from the beginning. My room was not ready, when we walked in, it smelled used. The bed was supposed to be a "King Size" and what we got was two regular beds put into one. Do you know how uncomfortable that is?
