It's tough to rate, because it is one of the coolest places you can go from a historical standpoint. It is an actual old fort, with a history of renowned Generals, a natural springs pool, a golf course and historical buildings, including an old theatre. There are hundreds of deer, bird watching, etc. From that standpoint it is excellent. The... More

The rooms are converted barracks from the days when Fort Clark was a cavalry base. Historic, quiet, pleasant. We stayed in a two bed rood, small but comfortable. Clean rooms, linen, towels comfy bed and plenty of hot water. Free wi-fi, AC/Heater, TV, natural spring feed swimming pool. No fridge, micro or coffee in room, however for $55, this is... More

My wife and I stayed one night at this motel. The motel rooms are located in an old converted barracks that once housed Buffalo Soldiers. Our room was very clean, comfortable in size but very basic. Essentially, it was a room with a full bathroom. It did not have any Kleenex, coffee making facilities, radio or a telephone. It did... More

We recently stayed here and overall it was a very pleasant stay. This is more of a "motel" amid a gated community. We truly enjoyed it despite the cold weather. It seems like it is a fun place to stay during the warm months due to its many outdoor recreational offerings. Pros: The fort is very scenic and historical. Plenty... More

This is one of the coolest places I've stayed in a long time. If you're tired of the typical, boring motel, this is a great option. The neat, clean rooms that make up this 'motel' are located in the converted barracks of historic Fort Clark. The internet is good, and everything is well maintained. No coffee, shampoo, or facial tissues... More

The pool at Fort Clark Springs is lovely, but the rules state that the only way to swim there is to spend the night in the lodging at Fort Clark Springs. The opportunity to swim is not, not, not worth the cost of staying in the Fort Clark Springs lodging. I"m not talking about financial costs. Let me share a... More

The rooms are converted barracks from the days when Fort Clark was a cavalry base. It's interesting to walk around the grounds of the old fort and looking at the historic buildings. My basic needs were met (including wifi) but there's no luxury here. The staff is very friendly.

I love this historic and friendly place in remote Texas. As others have stated, the pool is absolutely amazing!! The trails, spring, and wildlife are a wonderful oasis. If you love the rough, rugged outdoors then you'll truly appreciate Fort Clark Springs. The motel is small but clean and offers a good nights sleep. Bring your own coffee pot though!... More

If the only way to swim in the very nice spring fed pool is to spend a night at the hotel, then go for it. Otherwise, don't expect much from the basic rooms. Comfortable beds, good AC, but small rooms and dated fixtures. Of course, they renovated old soldier barracks, thus the smaller rooms. The motel is in walking distance... More

I feel in love with the history, stone buildings, museum, wildlife, golf, spring pool, safe streets, and friendly people; the first time I drove through the front gates.. I plan on retiring in this wonderful place in a few years... I can not wait to be there and watch the historical reenactments and help be a part of the future... More
