"Here is the magic of Rainbow Courts: it is on the short list of motels not just in Texas but across America that offers all those amenities and historic charm. Turning off the bustling Highway 79 or Cameron Ave. into Rainbow Courts Motel is like stumbling upon your secret oasis. The immediate calm of the central courtyard, where, enchanted amid the lush greenery with the comfortable Adirondack chairs, you are likely to forget you have a hotel room or suite waiting for you."


Historic Rainbow Courts Motel, Simply The Best

 A Message From Our Owner, Joan Ratliff:

Rainbow Courts is dedicated to the health and safety of our guests.  My twenty years of experience in health care contributed greatly to the development of our sanitation and cleaning policies and procedures.  Our standards are extremely high and as a result, we have always been and continue to be successful and focused on the cleanliness and sanitation of our rooms.  We use the safest and most effective disinfectants available and spend many hours training our employees on the use of these products.  In addition, we monitor our staff daily in every room to ensure that they are following our procedures.
Therefore, please be assured that we not only meet but exceed any standards regarding disinfecting and cleaning.  Our team is focused, caring, knowledgeable and is more than ready for the challenge of this this virus.
Safe travels.
