My kids and I stopped here one night on our way to Florida. I reserved a room via another hotel discount site so we stayed here for a budget price.
This hotel is on the eastern reaches of the Ft Stockton downtown area. If you're coming from the west and get off at the first Ft Stockton exit, you will keep driving and driving and driving and driving....you'll drive so far you'll probably wonder "Did I miss it?" Nope - just keep going!
Pulling up, your first thought will probably be "outdated", "50's", and "ew" but let me tell you - the rooms were pretty nice! The non-smoking two-queen room we were placed in was very clean with fresh paint and new furniture. The bathroom, though tiny, was updated and very clean. The beds were average but what do you want for a budget-level motel?
If there was one complaint about the room is that the walls are a bit thin. I could hear the murmurs of my neighbors pillow talk for a good hour but it was nothing a little music on the ipod didn't fix.
One thing that crept me out was the room that the ice machine is stored in. It's more of a utility hallway with a door stuck between two room (right next to the washer and dryer, if you're looking for it). It's very dark, very noisy and very creepy. Every time I went in there to fill my ice bucket, I couldn't help but wonder when the ace murderer was going to come out and get me.
The owners, a sweet Indian family, live on site and are on call all night long. They were cooking dinner when we arrived and it smelled so good, I almost climbed over the counter and joined them!
