We stayed in the main building, in a room facing front on the second floor. Everything (including the thermostat) worked perfectly. Clean, quiet, affordable. Our bathroom was beautiful! Staying in historic buildings usually requires some adjustment or sacrifice, but this one, NOT AT ALL. Everything (plumbing, TV, wifi, ice machine) was fully functioning, room was private and quiet, bed was... More

In contrast to the positive reviews that others wrote, my family and I had a poor experience in this hotel. This historic hotel definitely has some character to it, but the effort put forth by the people running it was surely lacking. We had room 31, which shares a thermostat with another room. Unfortunately, the thermostat was in the other... More

We stayed in the place across the street, the older place. It was clean and quiet, and warm on a very cold night, as promised. Just a few feet away from the drugstore, and walking distance to the organic grocery. A walk across the street is the cat, Tuxedo, making everyone feel loved. Worthwhile.

We liked the courtyard and rocking chairs! They offer different buildings and room styles. The service was great. The adjoining restaurant was very good. Plenty of common areas for relaxation. Ask for a room in the main building if you want history and high ceilings.

We stay at the Hotel Limpia every few months when we visit Ft. Davis from San Antonio. If you need a fancy pillow top bed and individual-room air conditioning controls...this is not the place for you. If you want a comfortable, clean room in a historic hotel...where the staff bends over backward for you...I highly recommend the Limpia. Every square... More

We were going to stay at the Indian Lodge at Fort Davis State Park, but they had a controlled burn and we cancelled and booked the Hotel Limpia. What a pleasant surprise. I stayed in a room inside the main building and it had been nicely rehabbed, especially the bathroom. There is a nice parlor with a roaring fire in... More

We were spending the weekend at the Limpia in Ft. Davis with friends when the ice storm hit. The entire town and region was suddenly in the dark with no electricity, and everything was closed up by 5:30 pm. Fortunately the Limpia has a gas fireplace in the living room, which as it turned out, was the best place to... More

One night stay at this older renovated hotel in Ft. Davis TX. Not many options in town and a place to stay if you are planning a night visit to the McDonald Observatory. A little pricy for this older place. During this road trip we stayed primarily in older renovated hotels in West Texas. It is a lot of fun... More

I was unable to make it to Ft. Davis Nov. 22nd due to the ice and sleet storm. I came out of Big Bend Nat. Park Fri. morn and ran into the ice and sleet at Marathon. Being a senior traveling alone, I decided to head east toward my home in Austin. I had no cell phone service either. When... More

If you are looking for a place to stay in Ft. Davis, Texas, you can't go wrong with this hotel. I think, however, we had one of the nicest rooms in the main building of the hotel. There are no elevators to the second floor so we were very happy with our suite on the first floor. The suite that... More
