My daughter and I stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it.
They basically took the old officers quarters and made them into a two bedroom apartment with a kitchen and living room. The entire place is decorated well with wooden furniture and a beautiful fireplace that they will provide wood for you to use. The only place to eat in town is a Whataburger, but the kitchen has an over and refrigerator to use if you want to stay in.
The best part of staying there is that after the fort closes to the public (4:45 when we were there) you have the entire place to yourselves. You can roam the battlement walls and large grounds with no one around. At night we explored the fort with flashlights - although we didn't run into any ghosts! The next morning we got up early to have breakfast up on the cannon placement walls.
While there, also be sure and spend some reflection time in chapel. It is beautiful inside and although it is only open during public hours, if you go first thing when they open it is usually deserted. They also have a Catholic mass there every Sunday.
If you are into Texas history, it is well worth it to stay here to soak in the history and what Fannin and his men sacrificed for Texas.
