The lunch buffet is plentiful and filling. The food is served from the stove and diners just grab a plate and help themselves. All of the food is prepared in the large kitchen and taste very homemade. The hotel has a hallway in which photos and articles about its history are posted. This is a fun and interesting place to...

I loved this place. Traveling through Texas, I happened on this hotel by chance and had the stay the moment I saw it. It's like a trip back in time and miles from strip mall motel anonymity. This place has real character, the staff were friendly, the breakfast excellent and at $35 a night the rooms were just fine. This... More

The Hotel Blessing is historic and charming and worth a stay at $35/ night for the feeling of early 20th century Texas. Rooms are small, spare, and most share a bathroom. Ours had a small refrigerator, a microwave, a gas heater, and a window AC. Beds are ok and the bathrooms are old, of course, and reasonably clean. Reports from... More

Second visit in a year, second disappointment. It seems to my wife and me that we love the idea of this venerable old place...but the food is not much to write home about. On our latest visit, the meats were cold and tasteless, and even the vegetables were bland and uninspired. You have to want to come here if you're... More

I had the pleasure of driving through Blessing last week with my grandmother, and two aunts. We are from Houston and were headed to Rockport, when my aunt heard about the Blessing hotel through a co-worker of hers, and we decided to take a lunch detour to try it out. I'm 26 years old so I walked in not expecting... More

It really IS "home cooked". Sundays they always have turkey and dressing (But they also had ham and roast beef). You help... More

What a true Texas experience. Lunch served in Miss Helen's kitchen .. Food made with love and talent and grace. Communal tables enhance the warmth of this experience. $9.00 will fill your stomach and heart! Get there as fast as you can.

We went here on a road trip on a recent Sunday. The buffet has a wide variety of comfort foods all for $9 per person. Just pay at the register when you arrive, grab a plate and start filling it up.
