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

We chose this motel due to the reviews we read on Trip Advisor and the cost...it is a very reasonable price for what your get. There are a few things I didn't like about it - lighting was very poor, no in-room coffee (they MUST fix this!), no ice machine, and the air conditioner didn't work that well, However, I've... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night as we drove through west and south Texas. The hotel was on a main road, but was quiet, clean and the service was good. We booked a corner room (208 I think) which was extra large and faced the residential street in the back. There was a refrigerator in the room and... More

The staff are the most accommodating folks you could ask for. Bob, Sam and the entire staff do whatever it takes to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The rooms are exceptionally clean, well lit, very comfortable and affordable. I never consider staying at any other location when I am in the area and now with an on site lounge... More

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!
