What a wonderful surprise and a blessing to find such a wonderful, peaceful and charming lodge to stay in. Family owned, it's full of charm and warmth. It makes you feel like you've come home. A beautiful central courtyard surrounded by the rooms , all with French doors. Ours had a wood poster king size bed. Spanish tile and wood... More

I reviewed many other places in Balmorhea or close to Balmorhea and Im glad we chose this one ! Florinda was friendly, the room was great, we felt safe and it was only minutes from Balmorhea State Park. The only downside, if any, was the matresses may need to be upgraded. We will be returning and recommending this place for... More

We left the Interstate to see if we could find a hotel for the night. It was getting dark and from the look of the outside of the building we were not quite sure we wanted to stay. The very friendly lady at the desk told us there were 2 rooms left. The price was very reasonable so we took... More

This is a very quaint, simple hotel. It's designed around a typical southwest "courtyard" approach. The entrances to the rooms are on the inside of the courtyard. The setting is a dusty, western texas small town. Not much going on here. But the hotel has been decorated with taste and is clean. The furnishings are surprisingly nice. The shower was... More

This little hotel is the best choice in the area. The room was extremely clean and had everything we needed. The door opened onto a cute courtyard with swifts darting in and out taking care of and protecting their nests. I appreciated the fact that the owners didn't remove the birds' nests just to make the guests more comfortable. There... More

We have stayed here two times now on our SCUBA diving trips. The SCUBA school we came with stays no where else but here, they like it so much, and I agree with them. The first time we stayed, our room had a mini fridge and microwave in addition to two double beds in one room. Our rate for this... More

Nice little motel in the middle of nowhere. Clean, friendly and next door to a good Tex-Mex Cafe. I have stayed 4 times on business and would stay again. A few miles off the Interstate but well worth it.

We have stayed here twice now and really enjoy this hotel. All the rooms overlook this cute courtyard and feel more like a fancy guest room at home then a hotel room. Plenty of pillows on the bed, a small refrigerator and microwave, and a nice snack basket are great benefits. The rooms are very clean and well cared for.... More

I stayed last night on a trip to the park for scuba diving. The hotel is fairly new and seems well built. The family that lives on next door in the big house built the hotel recently to fill a need in the area for quality housing for visitors to the park. The rooms are good size, but seem small... More

We loved El Oso Flojo! It was clean, close to the state park and very quiet. The rooms are a comfortable size, beds are adequate and you can't beat the scenery. The restaurant next door is pretty good, too! Loved and it and will definitely stay there again if we're in that area!
