The hotel had a room when we needed one on a Saturday night. The room was very dated and some serious maintenance issues but, there was a fridge, microwave and a nice flat screen TV...there was wi-fi and a restaurant with wine across the parking lot. It was clean and we had a good night's sleep there. The check-in clerk/owner... More

Bandera is a wonderful Texas town with much to offer to tourists and travelers. But it is definitely a town with few contemporary amenities (I suppose that's what helps it keep its charm). We have often eaten at Brick's, the restaurant behind the hotel and always enjoyed the outdoor patio, friendly staff and large portions of pretty good food. We... More

The western murals with running horses take a little getting use to, but the room was clean and the people were accommodating. They have restaurant and the food was good. There is a little creek behind the restaurant. We will stay there again if the need arises. I think this is the best place around Bandera.

The room we had was decorated in a western mural all over the wall. It took some getting used to but we learned to live with it over our three nights there. The ceiling had a glow in the dark starry affect which was lit by ultra violet light. It was lovely to fall asleep under the stars, so to... More

Ended up there two nights on motorcycle trip. We had a king room and a room with two queens, both rooms were clean and had new beds. The weather was not so nice! Very comfortable. Would stay again. Room rate was $87.00

room 125 has a mural of motorcycles. Interesting touch. also, there is a black light above the bed which fueled the glow in the dark galaxy on the ceiling. Not the cleanest, nor up to date, but I'm not sure what you would expect in Bandera.

This has got to be the worst possible place to stay!! Room smelled like old musty smoke!!! Ugly country mural painted on the walls! Beds were old and hard as rocks!!! Nothing extra or special about it!! I am in the room right now and the smell of smoke makes me want to puke!! They charged us $125 per night.... More

We stay here every summer when we participate in the rodeo. The rooms by far aren't the cleanest or most up to date but its a decent place to stay. What's really nice is the restaurant behind the hotel. This place has some great food. The Medina River runs behind the hotel as well. Like I said its not the... More

Went to Bandera with some Frinends on a Motorcycle weekend and actually found lodging in Bandera! The Room was a little strange with the Wildlife painted on the walls but it was a novelty. The Room was Clean, had a mini fridge, a coffe pot and the beds were Ok. The Best part is the Brick Restaraunt just accross the... More

Bandera has very limited lodging. This place is ok, clean, reasonable rates, and probably a bit better than the Bandera Lodge. I plan on coming back to stay again. AC worked well, and bed was avg and clean.
