We found a room by chance a ft the Hotel Limpia. So glad we did. I absolutely loved it! It is an historic hotel, so don't go thinking there is going to be electrical outlets on every wall or all modern amenities. You have to enjoy the beauty and history of it all. We stayed in the Orchard Suite #4.... More

We stayed at the Limpia for one night on a motorcycle trip through the Davis Mountains. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the hotel was very clean, comfortable, and felt like a visit to a time gone by, but with the comforts of today. We highly recommend it and will never stay anywhere else in Fort Davis.

We had a nice spacious room on the back side of the first floor with a private entrance off the back porch. It had a nice clean bathroom and a dated but clean & thoughtful kitchenette. I considered giving them a 5 for the wall mounted wine corkscrew alone. Bars open late around 5:00 and close around 10:00 so if... More

we stayed three nights in the Limpia and had a very nice room (#20) on the second floor. The bathroom was a bit cramped but ok. There are rocking chairs on both the first and second floor which are great for people watching. We enjoyed our stay here.

If you're en route to the Big Bend or the MacDonald Observatory, the Hotel Limpia is a good place to spend the night. But, if you do, make sure you get a room in the original hotel or in the suites. The annex above some retail stores across the street just doesn't cut it -- squeaky floors, marginal plumbing, upstairs... More

Over Spring Break we took our son and his family to Fort Davis and the Big Bend area. They were completely charmed by the Hotel Limpia and we, again enjoyed being there. We stayed in the suites adjacent to the hotel because of my wife's mobility problems. Our room was elegant, although the bathroom was small and a bit cramped.... More

We booked a double room as a family of 5. When we arrived all they had was a single and that was what they gave us. Shower did not work. There are other options in Fort Davis. Take them as the Limpia thinks it's the only game in town and they charge you for it. We complained and they could... More

Upon arriving, we found out we were across the street at "Limpia West". Old, without being quaint, dirty and terrible service. Our room had not been vacuumed prior to our arrival and if it weren't midnight, would have insisted on it being cleaned. Carpets very dirty and stained. We wore our shoes the whole time we were there. Our last... More

I apologize for your unsatisfactory stay. Limpia West rooms are our “budget conscious” rooms, but there is no excuse for dirty carpet. Unfortunately, a guest had apparently spilled coffee on the carpet prior to your stay. Because you were here during the busy Spring Break season, we had no opportunity to clean the carpets prior to your stay. They have... More

The hotel was recommended by a friend, so we booked a room for 3 nights.. If there had been any nearby vacancies, we would have left after one night. We were in Limpia West, so that might be the problem. Room was tiny with no sitting area or vanity wide enough to use. "Maid service" was awful. Bed covers were... More

I apologize for your unsatisfactory stay. Limpia West rooms are our “budget conscious” rooms and are what one would expect in a budget motel. We do provide accurate pictures on our website. We provide daily service to your room, but if a “do not disturb” sign is out, we will not enter your room. I am glad that the front... More

We were glad to have a room here (the last one), booked on the spot (lots of bikers here) because we decided at the last moment to go to the star party at the McDonald observatory. The building is a historic marker, turned into a charming historic hotel with lovely rooms, all different furnished (the rooms we could see) in... More
