I've used the free version and YES, very easy to use. You can actually draw to scale too.
Sketchup has a simple way to map your models and actually control how the mapping lays aross each face. You can rotate, scale and move the map so the texture looks natural. I have read the pro version has numerous import/export options so you can use the renderings/models with other programs.

The size of the model is limited in the free version, but big enough for simple stuff.

Also, you can get round the export restriction, if you hunt down some file conversion tools on the net.
