My family and I wanted to get away for the weekend. This is the perfect place for that. The staff is polite. The Hotel is quiet and clean. Being able to step out into the courtyard and see stars and not hear traffic raises the comfort level. Coffee is not in the room, it's just across the courtyard. I'm looking...

Our family loves this place! We have stayed here multiple times and have nothing but positive things to say. All the rooms have their own special design and flair. Always clean and the owners are so friendly. They can be a bit tough to get a hold of occasionally so we hang on to a business card with their cell...

Very cute place, I just loved the authentic feel of the place. I felt very safe, for I was with my two grand girls. This is not your usual chain hotel, which made it feel more like a vacation then work to me. I felt safe, and the girls even found a couple girls in the courtyard to play with....

I am not for sure which named room we stayed in but the number was 19. Each room is individually decorated I would say the room I was was in was very impressive. Yes the shower stall is something to talk about with the shower head coming from the ceiling instead of the wall. The rooms are very clean. We...

We ended up a day in the Balmorhea area and this was the first lodging that we passed. We parked, went into the courtyard area for the office, rang a bell and waited a couple of minutes for someone. The courtyard is pleasant. There was a friendly dog who greeted us. The room was nice, the locks were difficult to...

This is a super cute hacienda style hotel. We stayed in the Los Ositos room. Which has "two" rooms. You are greeted by a sweet little dog! The owner was very nice and helpful and check in/out was a breeze. But during the non-check in hour (3pm-5pm) it is hard to find someone who works there. But, in the office...

We stayed in the Los Ositos room. It was perfect as we were traveling with a 3 year old. The shower was an awesome rain shower. The dual sinks were nice. It was very clean and the gentleman who checked us in was the owner. He was super nice and helpful. The room AC units were enough to keep us...
