I strongly agree with the other reviews, the owners of this property could not be nicer or more helpful. The grounds are not much to look at by the interior of my room was beautify detailed and homey. It was more of a motel on the outside and lovely B&B on the inside. I have stayed at hotels around the world and often marvel at how much better a room could be with just a few adjustments. The owners of this hotel really have taken the time and effort to make the rooms all they could be – based on the room I was in. It was small but wonderfully decorated and complete with everything; and it was very up-to-date.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We let our customers decide whether they want to do nothing, or savor all the things Blanco & the Texas Hill Country have to offer. With that said we are an 80 year old motel, with rooms that have been remodeled over the last few years. All this to give our customers, and future friends, a charming "Hill Country" Experience! Being (we believe the motel was built in1932) we are 80 years old; we are the oldest lodging in Blanco County. Also, we are one of the oldest lodging establishments in the hill country. It was founded by Mary Lester as the Lester Courts when the State & Federal government was developing our state park system and when Route Number 66 was developed. No, not US Route 66, we think it was a state highway before it became US 281. So along with the road and the park here Mrs. Lester built the Lester courts. Wanting to slow down the frenzied pace of corporate life, my wife and I jumped at the chance to live in the hill country, and run a quaint little inn. As our retirement project we have had fun restoring the motel to a quaint "Boutique Motel" and meet people and new friends from all over the world. Ask us about some fresh eggs or soon our "Blanco County Honey!" ... more less
