Historic Lodging in Rockdale, Texas 

As World War I was coming to an end, Monroe Bullock’s dream of starting a premier hotel that embodies southern charm and hospitality, was just beginning. In 1918, Monroe Bullock founded Rainbow Courts, an award-winning Rockdale accommodation located in the heart of Central Texas. Shortly thereafter Monroe was joined by his brother, Ira, and the hotel has been family owned and operated ever since.

Generations later wife and husband team Joan and Dan Ratliff have worked tirelessly to retain the historic ambiance of Rainbow Courts by carefully renovating each room, suite and cottage with the needs of vacationers, business travelers, and families in mind.  Contact us for information on special functions and events such as, weddings, reunion and meetings.  

Rainbow Courts is now a Recorded Historic Landmark which is the highest historic recognition awarded by the State of Texas.

By revitalizing the vibrant history of Rockdale and combining it with modern amenities, Joan and Dan are proud to deliver an exceptional lodging experience.
