My husband stayed here last night and this is his review: The motel was awful. One of the 3 worst places ever. It wasn't just the age and lack of updates, or even the dirty, poorly grouted shower and toilet, but even the basics were terrible. The shower head was calcified, and when mixed with poor water pressure it was... More

Found this motel with a coupon. We were a little worried since we had a bad experience there under another owner, but were pleasantly surprised The room was large, very clean and had all the "normal" amenities. Internet was very slow. Would stay again when passing through. Only problem was breakfast - the waffle maker was not working so they... More

A very clean facility refurbished. Owner operator staff and very friendly and helpful. Rate for room very good. Only trouble with Van Horn is the close proximity to RR. If you want a first class meal,$$$$, try the El Capitan. Expect to pay more for the meal that the motel room, but very good food. Try the steak.

We were checking the Internet for hotels and The Whitten Inn showed up. Wendy was extremely helpful in getting us a room. The room was very nice, it's an older hotel, but we were very comfy! Would definitely recommend it! Totally impressed with its condition and the hospitality.

Traveling Tucson to Houston, spent overnight at this motel. The sheets were clean and the water was hot. The room was a bit dirty, mostly dirt from the continually blowing wind in this part of the country. There was a hot breakfast available. Check-in staff were friendly and efficient. I was under the weather, and the staff directed us to... More

Old style motel with parking right in front of room. Inside was very clean and modern with all conveniencies one would expect from a much more expensive hotel such as refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, iron and board, hair dryer and free breakfast. Very clean. Bed a little firm but OK. Staff very nice and helpful. Hotel is very good value. I... More

Traveling from Phoenix, AZ to Fort Worth, TX, Van Horn is about the middle of the trip. So we stopped at the Whitten Inn. Although an older property, it was very clean and comfortable. They have a small breakfast area serving Texas shaped waffles and cereals. The coffee leaves a lot to be desired (we like Dark French Roast). The... More

Stopped here on the strength of prior reviews...it's a great discovery! I got the walk-up rate, and found a very well-appointed room for $50. I've paid much more for rooms that didn't have fridge, microwave, etc. There is one person working the desk and she seemed to be out on the property a lot with the office locked, but she... More
