Upon arrival, there was no one on site. About 15 minutes later, a young man arrived and gave us "El Bubba" (each room is named), a quirky room decorated in kind of a hunting lodge style more in line with what a man would find suitable (can I say here that I used to work at a hotel and would...

We had to stop because we couldn't see because of the snow. We got lucky this hotel is very clean and nice. The guy at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Will keep this place in mind for future road trips. The courtyard was beautiful covered in snow

Slept in standstill traffic for over seven hours. Finally made it to the exit needed to head to this inn. Much needed shower and bed! Cozy little place seems to me the best in town. The owner and her son are very kind and quick to prepare a room! Rooms even have a nice balcony :)

We are headed back home and decided to try our luck in Balmorhea rather than on the interstate, and am really glad we did. The hotel is cute, and the interior of our room (#1) is pretty and comfortable. There's a nice interior courtyard. it's quiet and comfy, and very convenient to the owners little Mexican restaurant across the irrigation... More

We stopped for the night at Flojo's on a trip across Texas and found it to be a very good choice. It is certainly a very nice break from the cookie-cutter motels along the highways of America. Everything was clean, tidy and the service was nice, too. If you're up for something a little different... Give it a whirl!

This little place is great. Blows the other two places in town, away!!! We stay here on our diving trips with students to Balmorhea State Park which is just a few miles away. Beds are great, rooms are clean. They did a great job with this place. The little mexican restaurant next door is a must try.

Off the hwy a few miles, I loved the idea of only 9 rooms, each with it's own name and decorations. Apparently no other guests, as I was offered my choice of rooms. Website was ok, with one pic, of each room. Built like a old hacienda in a square with court yard in the middle. Very cute. Web site... More

Girls' cousin getaway trip- we felt peaceful and relaxed in this sleepy little place nestled in the Pecos River Valley -- our view was green open fields and sunflowers against the blue mountains in the distance. Comfortable clean room. Priced right. Friendly staff. Do take note the restaurant closes sort of when they want to and there is not much... More

My wife and I took a mini vacay to Balmorhea to check out the state park. We checked in at the El Oso Flojo Lodge. The staff was very friendly and checked us in quickly. The rooms are very clean and quaint southwest looking. The king sized bed was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If you're hungry the Cueva... More
