Apparently, Dripping Springs is a hot spot for travel and accordingly, there are no decently priced hotels. In my humble and well-traveled opinion, when you pay almost $100 a night for a hotel room, you should expect at least a comfortable bed, which I specifically asked about. The manager assured me that the beds were close to being brand new.... More

I live in Austin, and Dripping is about 30 minutes from me. I decided to stay here because there is a music venue here tonight, and I don't want to back to Austin tonight. The owner at the front desk was so very nice, and checked me in quickly. She gave me room #1! Never had room 1 before...lol. The... More

We didn't have a reservation and they still managed to get us a room. The staff was very friendly. It wasn't what I was expecting at all. The room was nice and very clean. With a fridge and microwave. Cable tv. Comfy beds. Would definitely stay there again.

Last minute for an unplanned trip, found a nice lodging outside of Austin. Very pleasant atmosphere if you prefer the country. Got to use their Picnic area for BBQ/dinner and enjoyed the evening with a little firework display. Rooms are clean nice beds and pleasantly surprised Free WiFi. Very family oriented.

Only other hotel close to the Terrace Club were I was a bridesmaid the other hotel was booked since they were hosting to weddings. Needless to say we only stayed the night before the wedding (rehearsal) and left in a storm the night of the wedding because we could not stay any longer. The hotel looked like the "Bates Hotel"...

Came to Dripping Springs for the 2014 Football Homecoming. Room was small although it was clean and comfortable. water pressure in the bathroom was very good. Place is a bit noisey in the morning. Had general vending, drinks, snacks.

The outpost is a small family owned business, and they are very friendly and accommodating. the rooms are clean and comfortable. The beds are very comfortable! The room includes a fridge, microwave, flat screen TVs, Coffee maker,... More

I stayed here for 5 nights while I was visiting in Dripping Springs. At $60 per night for a single person I found the rate to be a good value. The room was comfortable and quiet, and my stay was overall a pleasant experience. There is nice homey feel to the motel and the family that runs it seems to... More

Good points: Hospitality, TV & Cleanliness. Biggest complaint was that it was way overpriced ($90/ night), especially with this being off peak season. We agreed to this price before we ever saw the room (our fault), based on previous reviews. There are only 2 motels in this immediate area, the other motel will charge you about 40% more but it...
