Don't let the outside appearance of this hotel mislead you. Based on reviews, I was delighted with the sparkling new rooms, having been recently completely (not just partially) renovated. The high quality of fixtures, porcelain tub, granite counters and nice tile surprised me. The king bed was high quality and very comfortable for this weary traveler returning from Big Bend National Park. The room had all of the amenities found in much higher-priced hotels in Ft. Stockton, even had movie channels. The owners are very friendly and answered my questions about the surrounding area. After a delightful nights' rest, I wanted a nice place to walk before hitting the highway and they directed me to a big park with a walking trail lined with beautiful hugh trees and exercise points along the way. I began my trip refreshed after my walk. I don't think you will find nicer rooms in Ft. Stockton. This hotel is quite a bargain!
