I had read a few reviews about the cleanliness and condition of the property prior to booking. Let me be clear that I have stayed at high-end resorts and I was fully aware this was not that type of property. The rooms are a bit dated, but we found ours clean and tidy. I will say that all of the...

This was our first time to visit the Flying L and this was a vacation with my grandchildren and they absolutely loved every minute we were there and didn't want to leave. We stayed for 7 days and there was something for them and the adults to do everyday. The accommodations were good, clean and everything we needed was at...

We've been coming here since the early 90s every year on our annual family vacation and it's just absolutely perfect. Everyone is incredibly nice, friendly, and accommodating. There's a water park and Children's Activities for the kids, and it's a wonderful "unplug" weekend for everyone. The kids have a blast and so do us adults. The breakfast buffet is stellar...

We've been coming here since 2007 and absolutely love it! Our kids (12 and 11) are always so sad when we leave. We always stay 7 nights and stay on property the whole time due to so many fun family activities at the Flying L. We did go to the local Bandera rodeo one night which I highly recommend. Lots...

The Flying J is a nice "dude ranch" just outside of Bandera. There is a golf course, small water park, creek with a fishing hole, horseback riding, wildlife, etc. The rooms are rustic and comfortable.

I am always pleased with my visits to the Flying L. I love riding the horses every morning. It is so much fun on the trails with Joe Bob, Tawni, Patrick, and all of the other wranglers. It is such a relaxing place to stay. The staff are like family. The food is tasty. The chuck wagon dinner is a...

Plenty of options for activity, relaxing and catching up with your family. We enjoyed morning horseback rides. The wranglers get the horses ready and did a great job matching each of us to the personalities of the horses. Joe Bob Sorter, Tawny and Patrick were awesome leading the rides and made us feel at home on the horses and the...

We stayed here for one night, immediately I was grateful that it was only one!!! We stayed in a Historic Villa, it was smelly (super musty and smokey) and everything felt dirty. We wouldnt take our shoes off as the floors felt gross. I had a shower and put my shoes on straight away. There was also urine on the...
