This is our third time to stay at the Eleven Inn in Balmorhea, Texas. It's a small and quaint little place that makes you think you might have gone back in time to the cowboy days. The curb appeal as you drive up makes you wonder what you might have gotten in to. But, as you enter the center courtyard and notice the the desert flora and quaint porch decorations you begin to feel at ease. Upon entering the small but squeaky clean room you know that you've scored big. The coffee is the best ever, and the friendly owners are those that are hard to come by these days. Compared to other hotels in the area, this one can't be beat in price or service. It will be my first choice again next time. I travel to this area yearly to take grandchildren to the infamous Balmorhea State park for a two day swimming adventure. Again, this is not a fancy 5 star type hotel, but it is a great place to stay. Personally, I would choose this over a 5 star any day. I like value and the ability to keep some of my own money.
