The Rainbow Courts is one of the best places I've ever stayed. The front desk is very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, cozy and had a full working kitchen. This is one place I'd stay again in a heartbeat, plus the price is not bad either.

A unexpected oasis in Rockdale. The only place to stay. Charming, quaint, historic, and clean. Can't say enough, great staff, 93 years in operation by the same family. Great rooms, and it has cell phone service....some hotels in Rockdale do not!

Loved it. So impressed with the quaint homey feel. I appreciated having the amenities of included bottles of water, coffee and pastries. Highly recommend it over cookie cutter Mini-hotels popping up that nickle and dime you. Will stay at Rainbow Courts again anytime!

The place is almost 100 years old, but kept up very nicely. Bottom line, I'd much rather stay at a place like this than a chain motel. The gentleman running the place was friendly, and talked a bit about the history of the motel.

We had booked this hotel bc we were passing thru on our way to the gulf. We arrived very late in the evening (we let them know ahead of time) and they were very accommodating and great email communication. The room exceeded our expectations. Old but beautiful large "cottages/apartments" with kitchen etc. Felt very safe and homey. The staff was...

We stayed in the Garden Room -- it couldn't have been better! It was a quaint little cottage with all the modern comforts. Loved the old fashioned "ice box", Next time we are in the area visiting family, we know where we're going to stay!

I stayed here because I had a family reunion in Cameron I'm tight on a budget and rainbow courts was the cheapest hotel in the area. We had the queen suite which was just big enough for what we needed two adults and a baby. All the rooms were separated so you can't hear everything going on in the next...

We fell in love with this part of the Hill Country after we happened on this great little hotel/motel several years ago and actually just purchased our retirement home nearby. Since then, they have added more cottages and updated many of the buildings on the property. As we drove to our room we rolled down the windows just to listen...
