Rarely have I stayed at a place I liked so much. Owners are perfect for hospitality business. Birds in palms make you feel you are far away. Good wifi. Easy parking. I did not want to leave. Breakfast. Micro/refrig Comfy beds Near restaurants and services.

What can I say. I would for sure stay with Bob and his son again. In kindness, they allowed us to leave our truck at the hotel while we took the Amtrack train to vacation for the week so it would be safe. Then, Bob came and picked us up at the train at 1:15 AM...that's right....AM from the train... More

You cannot beat the Whispering Palms' price for a clean and comfortable motel room in this town. There is nothing lovely or special, it's just convenient and very basic. There is no coffee maker in the room but you do have a refrigerator and microwave and big comfortable bed. Easy to drive up and park in front of the room.... More

The hotel was clean and comfortable, and well located next to a great restaurant. But what makes this hotel special is the owner Bob and his family. They were warm, welcoming and did everything possible to make our stay memorable, from giving us toothpaste when we ran out, to inviting us to chat over a beer, to driving us to/from... More

Our travel plans changed and we were no longer able to stay in Del Rio for evening and the Manager was kind enough to let us out of our reservation on short notice. The place seemed really nice and worth considering on our next stop in Del Rio.

We found out about this Inn because we needed to stay near Mexico for an extended period. It has been a blessing to find such a warm and friendly ownership and a place that has far surpassed expectations. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - Bob and Sam!

When in Del Rio, Texas you should consider the Whispering Pines Inn as it is a pleasant alternative to the Ramada Inn and the like. It offers an economical price and a great location, which is right next door to Manuel's restaurant, one of the best steak houses in the city. The inn has been renovated and it is a... More

This hotels offers very good value if you are passing through Del Rio. Located on the main drag (Route 90 or Veterans Highway), it is convenient. This family owned and operated hotel has undergone a recent remodeling. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a free breakfast, but it is modest, with limited choices. Ok if you are in... More

We spent ten nights at the Whispering Palms Inn. And I really would have liked to give more than an average rating. The owners were very personable and made us feel welcome. The location was convenient and the price was affordable. At check-in the room was clean and neatly made up. My only complaint with the inn ... the daily... More
