The San Solomon Spring Courts are very basic, and that's great. If you stay here, you really get a feel for what it would be like to visit this West Texas oasis in the 1930's for a respite. We stayed in room 101 and while spartan it was clean. The courts retain much of the same character they had when... More

I’ve never used a Texas State Park overnight so maybe I don’t know the reality of public accommodations, however, how did we let our state government get so overloaded w/ “health & human services” that the operating budget for State Parks System is so meager? I’m sure the staff at Balmorhea State Park labors diligently and is over-worked maintaining the... More

I gave it 4 stars for being as described/meeting expectations. This isn't a four star hotel though. It is more like staying in a cabin and a step up from camping out. The walls are very thick which meant it was quiet. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The furnishings are very sparse, but we knew that before... More

Stayed here in unit 18, one of two king bed only units, for one night on our trip from Big Bend through the Davis Mountains. After staying the previous night in Indian Lodge the unit here did not meet those high standards. We arrived at 6pm after the office closed and picked the key up from an envelope with my... More

This is one of those places that you would rather keep to yourself as a secret. However, I think the secret is already out judging from the difficulty to find a vacancy during popular summer months. The courts are a rustic collection of old motor hotel style bungalows and nearby travel trailer campground lots. The jewel in this rusty old... More

My wife and I with our two kids and their friends decided to go camping at Balmorhea State Park. The kids pitched their tents while my wife and I, being old and out of shape, stayed at the little motel they have on the State Park property call the San Solomon Courts. The park has a gigantic pool which is... More

There is no other place to stay quite like San Solomon Spring Courts at Balmorhea State Park. The white adobe motel-style court has charm to burn (and air conditioning!). Each unit has a bedroom and bathroom, and several have kitchenettes that in the fall-winter of 2013 will be removed, so plan accordingly. In the future, the kitchenette will only have... More

We stayed in Room 10 (2 beds/kitchenette). The lodge is old and in need of some updating, but clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you are looking for an inexpensive option with few hotel amenities ,then this is for you. The spring fed pool it what makes this a perfect family destination. The water is clear... More

Great swimming hole. Swimming in the unchlorinated water with the fish is very refreshing. We have been fortune enough to be there when it is not too busy. One side is cemented to give it a pool type feeling while the other side is left natural and is much deeper. last we were there they had a low and high... More

Deduct a point for the uninspired housekeeping, deduct a point for no wi-fi, but then add all the points back in and then some because you're staying IN the park right across from one of the biggest, cleanest, clearest, and finest spring fed swimming pools on Earth. Now on to the lodging: The Courts are actually old "motor courts" from... More
