On New Year's Day 2015, we were forced off of I-20 by the big ice storm and were very grateful to find shelter in the Scottish Inn & Suites. The proprietors worked very hard to accommodate everyone and were extremely kind, friendly, hospitable, and delightful. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious with 2 Queen beds and a Queen fold-out... More

Based strictly on the personal touch, this motel is a 10. Andy and Elizabeth bent over backwards for all of us folks stranded due to the ice storm that went through this part of Texas over the new year 2015. Owners did not take advantage of the situation - room rates were reasonable. They have pet friendly rooms and room... More

I found myself stranded in an ice storm and made the decision to get off the road. I stayed from Tuesday through Saturday morning. The owners were very gracious. It soon became apparent that there were a number of us who made the decision to stop. I enjoyed the camaraderie among travelers and was treated to an impromptu classical guitar... More

My family and I were traveling over the New Year's Holiday when I-20 became unsafe to travel. We landed in Merkel, Texas at the Scottish Inn. The owner and his wife made accommodations for all of the stranded travelers. There were people from all over: California, Canada, Midland, El Paso, and Arizona. Each guest was treated with the utmost hospitality... More

The overall stay was just OK. Went by reviews that we saw on Trip Advisor and were very disappointed. Arrived and found very old and outdated rooms and beds. No hair dryers and the decor is out of the 60's. Had to wait 10 minutes to get hot water for a shower being we were on an end unit. The... More

We booked several rooms for weeks at a time and never had a problem. The rooms are very clean, the price is right and the owners couldn't be nicer people. I'd reccommend to anyone going through Merkel.

I travel to El Paso from Dallas and have to make a stop in Odessa. I have found the Scottish inn to be an affordable clean place to stop. It is a short drive (2hrs) from Odessa and I am back in El Paso well rested. In the past I had to plan around having to stay in Midland /... More

I've stayed in and worked in a lot of hotels and never have I experienced one as bad as this one! Upon arriving at the hotel the only thing they had going for them was the friendliness of the staff. Then the owners returned couple days later and were very rude! When we asked for bed sheets at 4pm because... More

We had two rooms here for one night last month during a motorcycle trip. It fit the bill for what we were looking for, as we always like to stay in smaller towns when we can, and we like a place where we can have our bikes parked right outside our rooms. This is an old motel and it shows,... More

We are on the last "leg" of two week road trip and under budget! Searching for nice, clean, comfortable stay for the last night. Hotels in all surrounding cities were very expensive, so decided on the Scottish Inn in Merkel, TX after reading Trip Advisor reviews. (Husband still asleep at 9:00 AM, so you know the beds are comfy.) Front... More
