We could not get a room at the El Capitan Hotel and saw this motel on Trip Advisor. The reviews were very good so we decided to give it a try. Frankly, I would not have considered staying here had it not been for the reviews but we found the reviews to be right on target. This is a family owned motel and they obviously care a great deal about their business. We stayed 3 nights and commuted 1 hour (next door by Texas standards) to Guadalupe Mountain Nat'l Park each day for hiking. The motel is very simple but very clean and tidy. Towels and sheets were all very fresh. Recently renovated room was comfortable. Good cable TV with excellent WifFi access. AC was fine. It is near the railroad tracks as are many of the motels but neither my wife nor I was bothered at all. Luxury it is not but a great value it is. We will come back.
