I stayed for only 1 night, but should have stayed longer. Friendly staff, very friendly owner that goes out of his way to help. Hotel has a good location, competitive pricing, close to restaurants and bars. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, with plenty of parking. One of the few hotels I'd recommend from my recent trip.

Good room and in good location. Met my needs but only thing that I didn't like was the fact that the owner seemed a little rude and it was very loud at night. Apparently someone at the property allows parties to happen. Would be nice if I partied and wanted to stay up but if you are exhausted and have... More

Being recently retired, we are always looking for a bargain, so we took a chance on the Whispering Palms. Our arrival was after dark. We were greeted by a very polite, handsome young man who offered us complimentary bottled water. We entered the parking area which was almost totally enclosed, making me feel very safe. The room was newly furnished... More

I picked the Whispering Palms because it was the cheapest place to stay I could find on the Internet. I didn't have high expectations, but it met my needs. Some things were below average - the breakfast was not worth stopping for - but my room had been refurbished recently and the mattress was solid, the bathroom nicely kitted out.... More

I don't expect much from a motel. My family stayed here because of the price and the TripAdisor ratings. Even after reading the high praise reviews I was skeptical, but happily surprised at the level of service from the staff, and the quality and comfort of the room. Very friendly, helpful staff that went out of their way to make... More

Not a miserable experience, but all these good to great reviews must be written by friends or undiscerning travelers. The room was small, the linens mediocre quality and the door opens directly onto the parking area. "Breakfast" was meager. It felt like a motel 6 or 5. If you like to barbeque, you can do it right there outside your... More

Sorry, that we were not good enough for you. email us a copy of your receipt and we will gladly refund you 50% of what you paid. Next time in Del Rio try and stay at your friends hotel. I don't think the money you are trying to spend will get you anything better. More

We checked in here last night upon TripAdvisor's advice. The person at the front desk who checked us in was super-friendly and welcoming, offering much-needed bottles of cold water and helping my husband get ice. He shared some of his story with us and it appears the place has been recently renovated and that it was a mess when he... More

Hotel had just been redone in a very up to date and contemporary way. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Price was very reasonable and everything about the place was just plain cool. We really enjoyed our visit and highly recommend this place.
