“Neat place to stay; great owner”
Reviewed May 30, 2011

When we arrived on our bicycles in Balmorhea, the temperature was in the mid-90s and there was a major wildfire burning three miles away. Joy, the owner, treated us really well, the rooms were neat and clean, and the air conditioning kept us cool. A small stream runs behind the motel and the sound of the water was refreshing. There aren't many places to stay or shop in Balmorhea, but Joy let us use a small outdoor kitchen to prepare a basic dinner, and she gave us grated cheese and cornbread. When the town was put under a possible evacuation warning because of the fire, Joy put our bikes on her flatbed and drove us 75 miles to another town. She would only take gas money. Her kindness and generosity only added to the enjoyment of our stay at her motel. It's basic, but we enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to others.
