The motel at Balmorhea State Park is cute at first glance, but ill maintained. The only advantage of staying there is its proximity to the pool and the low price.
The grounds, though recently planted with native buffalo grass, were overgrown, but beautiful native shrubs were flowering profusely. The entry of the adobe style room is spacious, with room to hang dive gear.
Double beds weren't too bad, but one of the headboards was broken and the only chairs in the room were hard Adirondacks with no cushions.
The kitchen was outfitted with a range and half-refrigerator, but there was only one knob for the two burners and the on-light was erratic. The stove burner was on when we arrived but the refrigerator was turned off so we had to ice down our coolers until late that night.
The tiny bathroom smelled like mildew and urine and there was no counter space, only a pedastal sink. Though the shower provided ample hot water, there was very low water pressure or poorly maintained shower heads.
Staff, though friendly, failed to advise us that sprinklers behind the units would be run every few hours but we found out right after we lit our grill for dinner. There were broken plastic adirondack deck chairs on the small patios.
My fiance likes the proximity of the motel to the pool, but I heard a few pool visitors suggest a couple of nearby motels, including the Eleven Inn.

The San Solomon Courts at Balmorhea State Park are also worth checking out. They are somewhat old fashioned, something in an adobe type appearance, since they were built during the Depression years, but equally the equivalent of a Motel 6 as far as furnishings are concerned.
The rooms were neat and well kept as were the bath fixtures.
This is in a quiet location, a few hundred yards from the pool, which in itself is immense. There was runnning water alongside the motel units with a pleasant rushing sound.
All in all a quiet getaway location with comfortable accommodations.
Only drawbacks were there was no restaurant at the park and the closest restaurants were a few miles away
