Quiet ,comfy ,and clean. Has all the expected annuities and within walking distance of the main town square. Onsite outdoor pool and a small deli/store for any needs. Beautiful setting with big pine trees.
We enjoyed our 2 nights so much we added a third. The camp room was cool in the heat, and the window, fan, and screen door kept a lovely breeze circulating. The beds were so comfortable that even my boyfriend's bad back was refreshed after a night's sleep. The shared bathroom was well-kept and the showers had great heat and water pressure. You cannot beat the value and the comfort. We will definitely stay here again and recommend you try it out!
We were looking for a place to stay for one night after an event at the nearby observatory. We found this old motel to be just as it was described in the reviews and photos -- clean and comfortable. The host is friendly and our room, though dated, was well-maintained and we got a good night's sleep.
Over the years I have stayed several times in a room at this historic motel and enjoyed the hospitality of owners Randall & Melinda et. al. who present clean, quiet, comfortable lodging at a most competitive rate. Most recently, I stayed for the first time in a "Camp room" which is by far the best value for lodging if you don't need TV and don't mind walking a few steps outside the front screened room (stone walls on other sides/back) to a gender specific (heated in Winter) bathroom/shower area. Although there is no in room heat (electrical outlets so potentially your own mini space heater could warm the area around the bed) I found the many clean, attractive layers of sheets, blankets, and comforter kept me comfortably warm even at 25 F once in bed. There is a large ceiling fan in warmer seasons and a nice heavy canvas privacy curtain and lockable door at the screened front of the room. As other reviewers have mentioned, not to be missed is the excellent Deli / store nextdoor which has awesome breakfast tacos, biscuits, homemade cookies/bakery items and soups as well as made to order sandwiches. Stop and stay here - you will be glad you did!…
We absolutely loved staying here. It was a very comfortable and quiet place. We loved being able to walk to the market and get fresh, delicious food. The pool was a relaxing place to cool off and enjoy after a day spent hiking around Fort Davis. We definitely wish we could have stayed longer and look forward to staying here again.
Quaint place right north of "downtown" with a nice pool and clean rooms. Soft beds, hot water, a TV, and a good AC were all we needed after a week of tent camping. Nice pool area and comfortable Adirondack chairs in front of each room...would give it 5 stars, but way took many flies to enjoy the outside. Would we go back? Sure...why not.
Found this gem by suggestion on Culturemap Houston. Stone Camp offers something I'd never heard of, a camp room, like camping without pitching a tent. Here, the camp room is a small stone room with its front wall screened and includes a screen door to allow the dry mountainous air to circulate but keep critters out. At night you can pull the heavy canvas curtain for complete privacy. This is not a motel room, it's a camp room with 2 vintage iron twin beds just down the way from a shared bathroom, just as one world share a bathroom in a camp ground. There is electricity and some rooms have a sink, which I like very much. Accommodations and bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. Randall and staff are very friendly, helpful and with lots of suggestions. Get a fresh made sandwich made to order at the market next door for your hiking lunch, they're packed and of substantial size, the breakfast biscuits and tacos are also deliciously homemade. We'd definitely stay at Stone Camp again and again.…
We stayed here two nights and altho a fairly basic room , it was clean and had everything that you could want. Refrigerator, microwave and an on-site deli with excellent sandwiches made to order along with other essentials. There is also a pool. It is walkable to all restaurants in town and a good jumping off location for Davis Mountains state park and the McDonald Observatory.
We chose this place due to its proximity to the observatory. This is not the typical brand name hotel experience that we are used to, in fact, the decor and age of the place was a throwback to my grandmothers house in the 60’s - but it was quiet and close to everything we wanted to do. Most importantly, it was very clean and the AC worked great! We stayed in the Queen Kitchenette Suite which had a small living area. The bed was firm & comfortable and the bathroom was small but adequate. Breakfast at the market was quite good!
My friend Brad Phenix recommended this place for me to relax and chill out in Fort Davis. I stayed in camp rooms and they were the best it was chilly at night time and comfortable during the day the place looked like it was I was going in a mountain somewhere and there's nothing in Texas like it it period definitely will stay there again Randall the owner makes it a great hospitality and a great place to just chill
