          Location is about the only benifit of staying here, being only feet from the front gate of Lackland Air Force Base it's the closest place to stay.

          We were very disappointed, the towels looked like they were as old as the hotel, the water does not stay hot so get ready for a cold shower, we saw roaches in our rooms, we were awakened to loud people below us with kids screaming at all hours of the night, room service entered our rooms even with the "do not disturb signs" on the door even after we asked them not to. Spend a few more dollars and upgrade imo.

          I liked the location, right outside the base gate, free breakfast and cheap

          To be honest, this location cant be beat,it is literally 20 steps outside of the Valley High gate. Lackland has graduations EVERY WEEK so they have a lot of business coming in. They need to invest some money in renovations because this place needs a facelift. For the price though I guess its what you get, but when you compare it to the gateway inn on base, which is 35 per night, this place is lacking.

          We chose the Care Free Inn because of it's location. My son was graduating from Lackland AFB, it is located rt outside the base. Rodney the night clerk was exceptionally attentive to our need she went above and beyond making us feel at home.

          The housekeeping needs alot of work. There is no attention to detail in the rooms. Updating is definately needed.

          Had bugs in my room in my beds and was absolutely disquested. Went to my room had no hot water.

          Convieniant to Lackland AFB.

          It is a tired, used motel

          The only thing that I liked about Carefree Inn was that it was right outside of the gates of Airforce Base. Which was one of the reasons we chose to stay there. They did offer breakfast.

          What is did not like about Carefree Inn is that all of the furniture in the rooms need an upgrade. The worst thing for me was the mattress on the beds which look like they had been left out in the rain. There was big brown spots on one side, the sheets did not fit the bed. There were bugs in the bathroom where my brother and his wife stayed for 5 days. I was only there for one night. The light fixture did not work, lamp shades need to be replace. Only if you are very very low on money would I suggest you stay there.

          Proximity to my destination was the best thing about Carefree.

          I inspected the bed and found Q-tips and tissue paper in the bed. The bed was made with these items in it. The hot water would vanish during a shower.

          cost, the staff was friendly.

          did not get a handicapped room as asked for.

          Proximity to Lackland Air Force base

          Dirty room, odor, hidden added charges, poor maintenance, little hot water, no sound buffer to other rooms,

          The room smelled of mold and the bathroom ceiling leaked and continued to leak even after management replaced the ceiling tiles. Our personal towel and extra key card came up missing while we were out of the room.

          The location was great as we were there for an airman graduation at Lackland which is right next door. Pool was nice. Lots of other airman families staying here to visit with as well.

          Could use some updates.

        • Single

          Close to Lackland A.F.B., right outside the gate.

          The room was infested with cock roaches. The tile in the bathroom was busted up and it felt like you were going to fall through the floor when you steped in the shower, or sat on the toilet. The shower curtains were full of mold, as was the ceiling. The box spring on the bed looked like it had been saturated with blood in one area. The leg of the bed was bent, so you had to be really careful when you sat on it or you might end up falling on the floor. The second floor balcony had some integrity issues. The support beam had rusted through on three of the four sides. At any min this thing could collapse and seriously injure someone! Now before you look at anyone elses post saying so what you get what you pay for, I moved hotels after staying a week. Found another hotel in the same area. Way more friendly staff!, And way better room! And o yea by the way it was 60 dollars cheaper. My advice, stay clear of the carefree inn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Rooms smelled like roach medicine. My room door was difficult to open and close and never closed properly. There was a roach crawling in the restroom and the toilet was dirty! As an American, I am ashamed that this motel is located right outside of a U.S. Airforce Base. The family and friends of our service men and women deserve better!

        • Family with children

          Great location right next to Lackland Air Force Base

          Both beds were broken and saged - bathroom door wouldn't close all the way - the room was in need of repair - some parts of the baseboards missing and carpet torn up in parts.

        • Family with children
          3.2

          location

          we didnt end up staying there, we had asked for a non-smoking room because of our childs ashtma , the room smelled like a smoking room ther were no towels in the room, no hot water the door did not close right, so we had to ask for our money back, but the worst part is we had a hard time finding an affordable room that met our budget, so we had to cancel some of our plans that were in schedule for our vacation. Bad expierence..
