If you have ever been on I-10 between El Paso and San Antonio and worried about a place to stay for the night the El Capitan is worth the stop. It is clean, quite and a great value. The staff has always been very helpful. Adding to the experience is that the property has a 'story' behind it. It also has an on-site restaurant/bar.
