We recently stayed here for one pleasant night at the end of our Big Bend trip. The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly. My husband and I had the lovely room #31 on the ground floor with a king sized bed and it opened onto the screened-in veranda. Great location! Our kids had a room upstairs with two...

We stayed in the Annex across the street, which had very basic amenities, but had access tot he main part of the hotel, which offered coffee and a nice sun room and lounge area. The hotel itself has a lot of character and is very fun. Try to stay in the main part of the Hotel Building if you can!

This location worked well for our Star Party at the observatory. The curb appeal on arrival was underwhelming. We arrived at afternoon "shift change" and were asked to wait while the staff completed their duties before they would check us in. We elected to walk the few shops across the street instead of standing at the desk. There are 2...

The Hotel Limpia is an antique. The building is in great shape for being 100. The rooms are decorated with a period look, but it is modern in its amenities. Stay in the original building, the floors creak a little but it is a wonderful experience. The parlor and wrap around porch are worth it alone.

A delightful older and historic hotel. Right in town. Very quiet, with ample room to relax. The rooms are dated, but that's the point - it feels old and it should. No lack of comfort either. Stayed upstairs. Nice size rooms with high ceilings. Large bathroom but little counter space. Dressers and TV. Amply furnished. Ceilings in the hallway are...

This is an old hotel but the rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable the staff friendly and knowledgeable; the hotel is convenient to the Davis Mountain scenic loop and we also drove to Marfa from here to see the Marfa lights. There is no elevator at the hotel and dragging your luggage up the steep steps(especially if you are old...

Wonderful historic hotel. The upstairs corner room was spacious and had a beautiful view of the courthouse. Great location for day tripping. Internet was spotty and there was a small flat screen TV with poor reception. The bathroom was comfortable with a tile tub and shower and tall ceiling.

This is a historic hotel, perhaps something out of the 1950s. There are rocking chairs on the verandah and embossed tin-clad ceilings. The concierge was friendly on arrival and we were pointed in the direction of our bedroom, a large room with en suite. The room was clean, with a TV, and the bed comfortable. In part the bedroom was...

This is a cute historic hotel. Beautiful on the inside. They have preserved the feel of a hotel built a hundred years ago. The rooms and furnishings reflect that period of time. The exterior is showing its age, aren't we all. Don't let that stop you. We would stay again.
