What a gem!
Driving through this part of Texas just because it was between our two points. Finding this hotel was such a pleasant surprise - reminds me of the Driscoll in Austin. Couldn’t stay an extra night this time, but are planning on one next year to explore the area and enjoy dinner in the restaurant.

Overnight stay between National Parks
Lovely renovated hotel. Smallish rooms (older design), beautiful lobby. Restaurant and bar on first floor. One drawback — right next to train tracks, train cane through 4-6 times overnight.

Disappointed visitor to El Capitan
The rooms were small but adequate, although the outdoor patio needed repairs and cleaning. The big disappointment was the quality of food in the dining room. The breakfast was horrible (dried eggs out of a box, cold potatoes and overcooked sausage) and the dinner (salmon with pecan crust) seemed as though it came out of a frozen package. I have been coming to this property for years and it seems the food service and overall maintenance is failing.

Great hotel
Clean and comfortable this is our usual hotel for traveling back to the west coast. I like that they now allow pets. Its a toss up if you will hear dogs barking. Parking lot is well lit and paved. Breakfast is good. Staff very friendly. Overall enjoyable experience
