We stay here twice a year, on our way to & from the Rio Grande Valley. The beautiful park-like grounds and well-maintained buildings make one feel as if it were 50 years ago, in quieter and simpler times. The rooms (cabins), although old, are luxuriously outfitted and very comfortable. The only thing missing from other hotels' offerings is a hot...

Cozy and comfortable room with great character. We were on a birding trip and coincidentally got a room with bird decor! Quiet area, very comfortable bed and super thick nice towels. Appreciated the comforter as that is missing in so many rooms.

We called in at 9:30PM to make a reservation for 10:30PM. They were very accommodating and kind to work with. The property was lovely and had a vibe of peace and community. There is a nice open field with white lawn furniture and sweet animals to greet you when you go outside (they belong to the motel owners). The room...

Thank you for your kind words and review. This motel has been in our family since 1918 and my wife Joan is the third generation to own and manage the motel. Thank you as well about the feel of the sheets; there are relatively new but we have recently been working on our laundry products and this review will assist...

Loved loved loved this place. Lovely gardens. Much attention to details in the room. Loved the chandelier over the bed. Won't get that at a days inn!!!! Would definitely stay there again. Owners were very helpful with recommendations for dinner.

I simply cannot believe someone turned a small old country style motel into such a beautiful place. I was absolutely stunned at the niceties. The staff, the antique style of the rooms and furniture was amazing. When I walked in the room I was simply in awe at the decor and the the style of everything from the furniture to...

Thank you so very much for your kind words. This motel has been in my wife Joan's family for 99 years and is a Registered Historic Landmark hotel. Joan has a passion for design and I think you may have noticed in the rooms. However, the best part of this business is guests. When you enjoy what you do the...

Small, yet friendly. Clean and comfortable. These words describe the Rainbow Courts perfectly. My husband and I stayed here on a kid-free weekend in central Texas and would definitely stay again. This fourth generation owned family establishment knows how to treat travelers right. Good value. Good service. And bonus for the historical aspect.

This is the kind of place where you can feel the care and love that has gone into making this a one of a kind motel. Family owned for 4 generations ... it's the old fashioned way... to be savored. Clean and charming.

Rural Texas, you shouldn't expect much in the way of motels ...... but here you will get more than expected. It is not the Ritz, but it is definitely worth your while if you need to stay in these parts. Remember, the motel has been in one family's hands for 100 years, so expect OLD structures .... but they are...
