This hotel is an older property. Sink was cracked, carpet worn, safety bar in tub was broken, towels were ragged. However, it was clean and quiet. Not a lot of choice in Bandera if you don't want to go the B&B or camping route. But probably won't stay here again.

We spent a Saturday night on June 4, 2016 so we wouldn't have to drive back to San Antonio late at night. We were charged $99.00 for a very outdated room that had a dirty tub. Then, early Sunday morning, we were woken by a chain saw! The Inn had hired someone to chop and haul off dead trees. When... More

We got the King Suite and it was roomy. The room was clean and didn't smell. The property is kept up. For a motel it was pretty good. When we arrived (9pm) we walked in to our room and the bed was still stripped. They immediately came in and put sheets on. At least we know that they change the... More

They allowed us to check in early (7am) which was really nice since we were exhausted! The room was awesome; walls painted like a forest with horses and foals. TV had full channels and the room itself was quite large. Only a few things which were a bit yuck. The carpet was old and smelled a bit & was quite... More

For our Christmas family visit, we had planned to stay here for a week. However, because of the approaching blizzard in West TX, we had to cut short the holiday to return home before roads became too hazardous for driving. The manager/owner (not sure if it was either or both), was very gracious & understanding, and he reimbursed for all... More

This was the worst room ever!!! The bathrooms and beds were filthy and service was just as bad!! Owned and operated by Middle Eastern family who have no concern for cleanliness or customer service. The price did not fit the accommodations received. .

We stayed here as there wasn't many options in Bandera. The location is good, river access, however, the room had a horrific sour smell. I believe it was the carpet as the smell wasn't as strong in the bathroom area. We went and got air fresheners and vent clips to put on the AC. It didn't help the issue. I... More

I was driving through and luckily only had to stay here one night on business. Putting it simply the bed was not comfortable, crusty stains on the sheets, the paintings on the walls were cheesy and I found some nasty hair hanging out of the bathtub faucet. Plus there were spiders around the toilet and shower. The rooms are also... More
