Nice place. I found why there are so many good ratings. Friendly owners, a comfortable room. Liking Texas History it was neat to see they are getting a Historical Marker for the place. Has been in the same family since 1918. Thanks for a great stay. Will be a regular since I found the place!

This place is remarkable. It is very cozy and relaxing. I was in town for the A&M football game and to visit with my daughter. I will stay here time and time again. Nice country atmosphere and the little town folk were very friendly. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND

My fiance found a truck after his wreck in Rochdale, Texas. I booked with Rainbow Courts Motel because it looked quaint and homey. The owner checked us in at 1AM with a smile. We had two rooms and both were super clean and comfortable! I've stayed in a lot of motels that were supposed to be classy, but this was... More

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.
