This was a stopover on a road trip and was good value. Room was clean and comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is decent. The location is good too - plenty of options for eating nearby.

When you first arrive at this property, you may ask yourself why there are so many positive reviews for such an unassuming place. After all, the Whispering Palms is a motel, plain and simple. If you stay there expecting anything more, you will be disappointed. The rooms are bare-bones and simply appointed (though large), and the motel contains few amenities... More

Small and a bit old fashioned but the staff is wonderful and the rooms are very clean and well cared for. This is a family owned business and everyone has always been friendly and accommodating. This is where I always choose to stay when in Del Rio.

Stayed here as part of our Big 2015 Road Trip. After a long day on US 90, we asked TripAdvisor for suggestions on places to stay in Del Rio. This property was highly rated, and so we thought we'd check it out. Our son, after seeing the waterfall at the swimming pool was all "canwestayherepleasepleaseplease?" It's not as inexpensive as...

Great place if looking for a reasonably priced to stay for a night or two. The rooms were clean and had the basic necessities, wifi, fridge, etc. Location was very good and staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions. Complimentary breakfast was acceptable and the coffee was perfect. Only weakness was the condition of the pool.

Torn bedding, dirty parking lot, attendants hard to get hold of, very small soaps, bathroom caulking unsightly, lamp shade torn, room full of flies and other bugs, old carpeting, too difficult to get ice, pitiful breakfast, pool dirty.

Probably one of the best surprises found in our travels. Staff is great. Price is very reasonable. The rooms are immaculate. We consider this an regular stop and look forward to seeing the owners. A real pleasure.

I choose this hotel because the reviews were good. It's for sure that it's good because I stayed here and saw how the service and rooms are. The staff is more than friendly, they don't know what to do more to make it your best stay ever. They really listen what you asked for. Such as a quiet room, it... More

Was working down in Del Rio on nights for a couple months and the service at the Whispering Palms was exceptional. We stayed at the Best Western for a couple weeks before and it doesn't compare. Samay who worked the nights up front was more than accommodating. The rooms aren't on the bigger side but make up for it in... More

Firstly cast from your mind any image conjured up by the name 'Whispering Palms'. This motel is a classic courtyard 2 storey Days Inn style hotel on the Del Rio Strip with a quite severe and almost forbidding external appearance. Yes there are 4 palms at the hotel and there is a waterfall. This consists of a plastic moulding over... More
