The room was comfortable, and the furniture was somewhat distinct from the usual "motel standard." True, no TV (though you could rent one) or cell service, but that was actually a plus.
The only drawback was that we were on the ground floor of a two-story accommodation; the upstairs guest was up at 6:00 every morning, tromping back and forth for a good hour. Since it didn't get light until 8:00, that was an unwelcome distraction.
However, the scenery in the Chisos Basin is spectacular, and there are numerous hiking trails of varying lengths to accommodate almost any desired level of activity. Since it was early April there were numerous wildflowers in bloom, which added to our enjoyment of the vist.
