“Great 40 years ago maybe-like being in a time warp.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Spent two nights here as part of a road trip.
Location was good for central Kerville and the Folk Festival.
We first visited the USA forty years ago and this hotel was just like things were then.
Tiny room over stuffed with furniture. Poor lighting, uncomfortable beds.
Restaurant was awful as was the food. Plenty of it but lacking in any flavour. Breakfast was included but we skipped it the 2nd day as it was rubbish.
Staff seemed pleasant but not over helpful.
If you welcome nostalgia this is ideal but if you want 21st century lodging-avoid.

Room Tip: Ask to be near the pool which is also near the restaurant and lobby.

We stayed here for a week & it was a very clean & nice hotel. The staff was very friendly & the use of the business off was great. It is a good place to stay & easy to get around town from there. Even though the cleaning staff was short handed, they do their best to accommadate & make you comfortable. The front end desk staff is very accommadating as well.

Room Tip: Corner rooms may be a bit quieter during the summer

Poor location, very poor restaurant, no service at the pool and the pub closes at 10 PM.
Our room was comfortable and clean. Staff was very friendly but not very professional.
30 years ago it must have been a resort, now it is a conference center.
Besides the Guadalupe river, Kerrville has nothing interesting to offer. Ingram is a joke.

Room Tip: Don't even try the restaurant. Best choice is behind the hotel. 1011 Guadalupe Blvr. If you loo...

This is a lovely hotel with lots of hill-country charm. Clean rooms, good location, and an attentive staff. The breakfast is unusually good.

As I've noted in other reviews, hotels in this part of Texas seem to charge top dollar for fairly average rooms. You can get cheaper rates in nearby San Antonio, with far more amenities and bigger attractions. But if you're traveling in Kerrville, Inn of the Hills is a pleasant place to stay.

Plan ahead; try to book 30 days in advance for significant savings.There's a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. it's a short drive to Ingram; for cheesiness can't beat Stonehenge 2. The 20 mile drive to Enchanted Rock is well worth the time.

We were very impressed with the Inn. Our room was large, well-appointed, and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Each of the four nights we stayed, we returned to our room to find the room cleaned and the amenities restocked. The grounds were beautiful, as were the public areas. Everything we saw was impeccable and well-maintained. Despite an electrical storm that knocked out the kitchen of the restaurant during our first night's stay, we found a wonderful cold breakfast buffet awaiting us in the lobby the next morning and a wait staff that was all smiles despite the difficulties. We would highly recommend the Inn of the Hills and hope that a room is available for us the next time we travel to Kerrville.

Room Tip: We had a king room beside the pool, so each morning we had a lovely view just outside our door. It...

We have stayed at the Inn for the last 6 years! It is a great place to stay! You have every thing you need in one place--room, buffet, bar & dance floor, pool! It is located in a great place, close to major roads, Walmart, grocery store, drugstore, good places to eat!

Room Tip: Reserve rooms 2 to 3 weeks early and get a good discount. We like staying down by the Conference Ce...
