This place was perfect for us. It is very clean and the owners are very friendly. Quaint is the best way I could describe it. It is not fancy, but the room we had was much better in many ways than our last stay at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio!! The outside grounds were very nice and we ate... More

I've been driving past this Inn for over 20 years, and this past Saturday stayed the night for the first time in room 106 and it was great. Everything you need in a cozy room. Look forward to coming back next time I'm in the area. Blanco has great restaurant's for a quaint town. Thanks!

This Inn was a great place to stay. It had everything we needed and then some. It was affordable, inviting and cute. If you are looking for a place to stay over when floating the river, this will not break the bank. We enjoyed it very much.

Really cute rooms and great location. The owner's are very on hands and good property managers. Close to every location you might want to visit in the area. Great place to get away with family, friends or solo. I totally enjoyed my stay. Trudi Davis

Only place you need to stay when in the area. Beats the major hotel chain hands down. Centrally located to all the central hill country attractions. Whether it for R&B or business you will throughly enjoy your time here.

Every summer, myself and about 5 or 6 other couples get together for a mini fraternity reunion. It's tough to find places in the Hill Country to get us all in one spot, but we were glad we found the Blanco County Inn. Unassuming at first (and we did have our skeptics) but by the end all were glad we... More

This motel doesn't look like anything special when you arrive but as soon as you meet the owners and see your room you know that this is a place you will return to. The rooms are unique, spotless and comfortable. They have a real coffee maker and also have snacks provided every day. I recommend this place to all our... More

Deborah, the owner checked me in. What a lovely person. I am writing this review after being in my room for less than a half hour, barely enough time to unpack for my weekend stay. The room is perfect, clean, and quaint. Lol, I don't know if I have ever called anything quaint before. Everything on their website stating the... More

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
