“Nice located hotel but they need to clean the rooms better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

The hotel is nice located by the river and with a restaurant that the locals go to.
We payed 75 dollars per night, for that price we wished it was better cleaned. The sheets, towels, shairs, carpet, madrass walls and so one were spoty and it feelt dirty and hairs on the floor in the bathroom.
However the staff is verry friendly, the location is great, just a 10-15 walk to the center.
Free fast internet.
The only thing this hotel needs is a good paint, and a good cleaning.

Stayed here on a weekend night. Other reviewers are correct -- the hotel did seem a bit run down, the bathroom door had a bit punched-in hole (not see-through) in it, some blankets were a bit bare and one had a hole. We paid $89/nt, for a bit less money this wouldn't have been a big deal. On the positive side: location is good, there is a nice path to the Medina River (right behind the hotel), owners were very friendly, and the hotel was quiet. I enjoyed staying there, as everything was clean -- just a bit rundown is all.

The room decoration was Western-style and I liked that part a lot. All in all I'd stay here again, but would probably ask for a discount first.

Very dirty, most items in room were broken, lamps looked like they'd been left in the desert for 30 years then put in the room. Chair was broken, lights didn't work, dirty sheets, dirty bathroom, so dark that I couldn't see all the dirt (thankfully)... plus $100 a night for this? I wouldn't mind the rate if things worked and were CLEAN!

Stayed at this motel while riding the hill country area around Bandera. Our room was one with two Queen beds. It was a very basic with a TV, small toilet/bath/shower room, area with sink & small space to hang clothes. The place could use updating and thorough cleaning. Our room was $89 (because we'd booked more than 5 rooms as a group). I haven't stayed at other places in Bandera, so don't know how River Oaks Inn compares.
