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

Stayed here recently during a trip out to West Texas. I had been here previously - so I expected a modest room at a modest price. Prices have risen since my last visit. Room cost was $65 plus $25 for a pet - So cost was $90 for a modest room with few amenities and non working wi fi. Still... More

I've been to Brackettville (Texas), six or seven years in a row. And every time I've stayed at the fort. If you enjoy history this is the place. As for breakfast, I highly recommend The Krazy Chicken (no joke) directly across from the fort. Family run, very rustic (right out of a John Wayne movie) but the food is great!... More

Fort Clark Springs Barracks have been updated. Rooms are newly painted ,local TV, internet ,all rooms non smoking. We have a large population of Wind Farm residents during the week,so try to call early for reservations. New front office staff who are very willing to fit your needs. Rooms are "spartan" to preserve the Frontier atmosphere of the Historical Fort.... More

We were so excited to learn that the barracks motel was again accepting dogs ($25 fee per stay) but our experience this time has been funky from the start. First, no one replied to our online reservation request and we had to call to confirm (they argued they had replied, which they had not). We requested downstairs nonsmoking, and when... More

The rooms are all in the old barraks of Fort Clark. They are very simple, but had everything we needed for a good night's sleep. The history of the Fort is fasinating both for its military and film history. John Wayne used it as a base for his film company and stayed in one of the former officer's homes. The... More
