I've realized that hotels under 70-80 per night are going to come with a fair share of issues. But when you're on a tight budget your willing to deal with a few of those.

I stayed here for almost a whole month. Never had any problems. Coffee was always ready for me very early in the morning. Friendly staff. The only complaint I have is they need to update their gym. They have one very loud treadmill and a bike that's probably from the 1970s. Other than that everything was great.

The beds are extremely firm and uncomfortable.... Location for MD Anderson is good, but beds make it a deal breaker... Probably wont stay here again.

I stayed at the Carefree Inn twice this month, and will be going back every time I'm in the Houston Medical Center area. If you're looking for a budget hotel, the value can't be beat. The rooms have everything a business traveler needs, including iron and ironing board, free wi-fi, AND a fridge and microwave which you rarely find at... More

I need to come from California to the Medical Center once a month and this small hotel is just the spot to stay. It's clean, friendly, and very affordable.

My stay at the Carefree Inn was restfull, as well as pleasant. This is and older facility, that has been fixed up. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The shuttle service prompt, and ran on the hour. The cost, well within the budget, of a cancer patient. Will I use Carefree Inn again?... More
