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

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

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

Though this the hotel has been updated a couple times since I first visited about 20 yrs ago, it retains historic charm. Beautiful old bldg with a sun porch full of games and comfortable chairs. It's adjoined by a good restaurant (it didn't used to be very good but the new owners seem to take food a lot more seriously... More

Great location to visit very interesting attractions like Fort Davis National Historic Site and, McDonald Observatory. Don't miss either and there are several other nice options in the area. The hotel staff was very friendly but the hotel is over 100 years old and major renovations would likely be very difficult and extremely costly. I am glad they have been... More

This place was taken right out of the opulent past. The main house was decorated in a lavish antique style that had a homey feel to it. The sitting room had a fire going in the fireplace - must appreciated on the cold, foggy, and snowy night that we arrived. We sat and enjoyed it for a nice long time... More

We enjoyed staying at the Limpia Hotel in Fort Davis. It is very historic and in a great location in the main part of town. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our friends stayed in the main building and had a great room on the first floor. Our room was across the street and upstairs so I would not... More

We spent Valentines Weekend at the Hotel in Suite 8- very spacious with canopy king bed, in the annex building built 1905 across a small side street. The room was very comfortable and the full kitchen made it easy to make our own coffee in the morning and keep snacks in the fridge- we went to the star party Friday... More

On 1/1/15, my wife and I were originally going to stay at the El Capitan Hotel in Van Horn, TX. But after a bad experience with their manager who treated my wife VERY rudely, we canceled our reservation there, then drove through the icy and snowy roads for about 70 miles to Hotel Limpia in Fort Davis. It was worth... More

Our room was not in the main building and it was excellent, which may be the way to go as we were told that some of the rooms are better than others. We were warmly received and through the course of the evning we were introduced to the 14 year old resident cat who graciously received us even though we... More
