“Worth It”
Reviewed April 21, 2010

The other reviews definitely capture the flavor of this place -- an old motor court that's cutely renovated. When we arrived I was a bit dubious because our room was right on a main street of Fort Davis and I am a light sleeper. If there was any night traffic I slept through it. We were checked in by Randall, who was friendly and helpful. The free wireless did not reach our room, but it is very pleasant sitting by the pool to check emails. We ate at Murphy's Pizza, which had all fresh vegetables on our pizza -- not that easy to accomplish in a small town in West Texas. Stone Village Grocery next door has an amazing selection of organic products, baked goods, and made to order sandwiches.

A RARE find! This adorable historic property has been intelligently restored to a wonderful little slice of heaven. Management was INCREDIBLY kind, patient and professional - not to mention an absolute delight to hang out with. The evening I was there it was too cold for the pool, but we did sit around the fire laughing & swapping stories. The indoor rooms are very, very clean and nicely furnished (and I'm picky). The outdoor rooms are also very clean and well appointed (perfect for Summer). The natural food store & deli next door rivals a Whole Foods, and if they don't have it you probably don't need it. Well worth the very reasonable prices. And the short but GORGEOUS (see photo) trip South from I-10 is also highly recommended. I HIGHLY recommend SVTC to anyone, but especially those who appreciate unusual, adorable, peaceful, historic & well kept properties! THANKS SVTC!

Loved It! We were on a 2400 mile 12 day road trip thru Texas for Spring Break. This was our favorite hotel of the trip! We stayed there on night 11 and a front blew thru the night before and 20 degrees with 20 mile an hour winds made us decide to skip the Star Party at the observatory. We decided to have a relaxing movie marathon instead. We had not brought AV cables to hook our laptop up to a TV but when asked the Manager went in his living room and took the cables out of HIS DVD player and gave them to us for the night! Talk about service. Overall it was clean, recently updated, well soundproofed and comfortable. We will be back !

We didn't stay in the motel because we found out about it after we planned our trip. They have a heated pool and the camp is a hidden treasure very close to Ft. Davis Military Camp. We walked through, looked in, and we will definitely remember it for next time. We did, however, stop in at the Stone Village Grocery Store. They have great coffee ("Big Bend Coffee") and all the things a person will be looking for after being away from the city for a while. A little bit of "familiar" in a far away place.

We spent two nights during spring break. Room with two queen beds. Compared to others during this time, it was reasonably priced. They had fire going on one of the nights, kids had fun with roasting marshmallows. There was one hammock, when available, it was fun using it too. Randall the manager was helpful. They did not provide any email confirmation, but did honour the reservation. I would use them again. On my previous trip I used the Old School House B&B. This place offered more privacy and private baths.
The store next door offered free coffee, they customized breakfast and lunch for us. A littlebit on the expensive side, but it was worth it.
This place is in the heart of the little city, close to historic Ft. Davis, to the stables for horse riding and on the main road that loeads to Marfa, Mc. Donalds Observatory and Alpine.

The prior reviews said it all. This is a great find in Ft Davis. Very cute renovated old motor court. Rooms are small but updated and clean. Perfect for a four person family. The little courtyard/pool area is a great place to hang out and have drinks at the end of the day as well as smores for the kids. The manager Randall is a great guy and makes everyone feel welcome atthe motel. This is a great spot. The one big thing to remember about this area though is that the restaurants leave much to be desired. The Mexican place Cuava next door is not good and the Chuckwagon is just ok. The market next to the motel is great for breakfast and sandwhiches but doesn't do dinner stuff. Bring food with you and maybe try to use the motel grill. Ft Davis is a neat area and lots of fun.

We stayed in Room 5, a motel room, in the Stone Village Tourist Camp. The room was really a two room suite, with one room with a dining table, counter, and bathroom, and a separate room as a bedroom. The room was very clean, beds very comfortable, and great space for our family. It appears that some of the other rooms were being renovated at the same time. There is also a natural foods store next door, which made food supplies very convenient. The host was also very welcoming and accommodating toward our needs. If you happen to be in Fort Davis, I would recommend staying at the Stone Village Tourist Camp.
