Rundown old motel Dec 12, 2009
The Carefree Inn @ Medical Center is located at 10015 South Main Street in the southwest part of Houston. Houston is easy to get around in considering it is billed as the fourth largest city in the U.S. Houston is mostly flat terrain and the only large group of high rise buildings is in the central downtown area. A somewhat simplified geographic sketch of Houston is from city center, the city has two highway circles around it. The inner circle is Interstate 630 and the outer circle is Beltway 8. These two circles are bisected by U.S. Highway 59 from northeast to southwest and by Interstate 45 from north central to southeast Houston, the highway to Galveston and the gulf coast. This motel is located on South Main Street very near the extreme southwest corner of the Interstate 630 Loop at the Buffalo Speedway/S Main St exit. This area has a number of hotels due to the long time location of the Houston Astrodome. The Astrodome was one of the first sports and convention domes in the US and is still located directly east of Reliant Stadium. The Astrodome is currently not in use but there are plans to turn it into a movie studio. The Astrodome has a long history and a tour can be arranged in the Park offices. The present location of Reliant Stadium was the location for many years of Astros Park, one of the early large amusement parks in this part of the U.S. The motel is also located fairly close to the famed Texas Medical Center complex of hospitals, VA Hospital, and Texas Children’s Hospital, about 4 miles north of the motel. And 5 miles north is Houston’s renowned Museum District and Hermann Park.

If your destination is any of the hospitals or clinics in the huge Texas Medical Center complex, there are several motels and hotels located closer to the medical center. And most of them are a better facility.

To reach the Carefree Inn coming from the east on I630 the exit to take is Buffalo Speedway/ S Main St and coming from the west take the Stella Link exit. After taking either of these exits, go to the south side of I630 and travel about 2 blocks south on S Main St.

It is a low priced motel but it is run down a lot and not very clean. It looks like one of the older motels in the area and has not been kept up very well. The hotel has no restaurant but there are several restaurants on S Main to the north.
