MD Anderson / Houston

Here are some great places to stay within walking distance if you don't want to have a car

  • This is a downstairs unit of a 2-story 4-plex. It's close enough to walk to/from MD Anderson. Hosts are super nice and accommodating:


  • This is a single room in a big house. It's a bit of a walk to MD Anderson, but not bad. Bathroom is shared. Each room has its own lock/code.


  • This is a 2nd(?) floor unit. Walk isn't bad to MD Anderson.


  • This is a former pastor at MD Anderson. I don't think I see the unit I stayed in, but he was nice and his rates were really good:

The Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland

(Patient must be 21 years old or younger) Offers a place to call home at little or no cost so families can access the best health care, regardless of their location.  We allow families to stay together, which can help their children heal faster and cope better.

Our House enables families to focus on the health of their child rather than anything else – like paying bills, cooking meals, cleaning the House. We preserve a sense of normalcy with home-cooked meals, comfortable beds, and recreational activities for the family to enjoy. Most importantly, we help families create connections with other families, staff, and volunteers. In doing this, families have a support system to turn to during the most stressful moments of their lives.

  • All adults (18 years or older) are required to pass a criminal background check before being allowed to stay at RMH. For more details, read our family ELIGIBILITY POLICY.
