We had a double down by the trailheads. It was July and cool every morning. From Chisos min we were centrally located ad went North, East and West to experience the park. We entered from I-10/Alpine and left through Marathon/US90. The views from the Basin are wonderful, and there are enough trails close by you don't really need to explore the whole park if your so inclined.
The rooms are very clean and recently renovated. The restaurant is surprisingly good with a lot of variety from steaks, to pastas, to hamburgers and salads.
