We spent a night in room #3 (renovated motor court), it was cute little room which was perfect for us. Bed was nice and firm, ceiling fan kept the room very comfy. Walk in shower was small but very clean. There is a mini fridge to keep your drinks cold, and microwave for your night snacking.
And of course, their market comes in very handy. Overall, we loved this little place. And people keeps this place makes you feel very welcomed.

We go to Ft. Davis a lot, thought we'd give this place a try. The best thing was the pool area. The room had a sour smell, probably need a new rug between the beds. And if you're tall, don't stay in room #7! And for the price, the Limpia & Indian Lodge are a better choice.

The Stone Village Tourist Camp was one of 17 hotels/motels
we stayed in on a 3500 mile loop though the southwest to visit
some new (to us) National Parks. It was unquestionably the
worst of the lot. Firstly, I picked Fort Davis because it was
approximately half way between Carlsbad Cavern & Big Bend NPs.
To say this is a one horse town would be overstating it. The
only paved road is State Street (Route 17). All the other roads
are dirt. The only good thing I can say about our room at the
Stone Village is that it had several large wastebaskets; too bad
the owners hadn't put most of what was in the room into them.
The beds were old and the mattress' sagged in the middle. Plenty
of moths had made their way into the room and had taken up residence
on the curtains and walls. The toilet was not bolted properly to
the bathroom floor and felt like it was going to tip over at any minute
when you sat on it. The drain in the shower was clogged so you ended
up standing in several inches of gray water after a quick soap up.
The whole property was just grubby, from the dirty vestibule entering
the room to the trash around the common areas. We would have been
much better continuing on another 25 miles to Alpine, TX where there
were several big chain hotels. Probably would have been cheaper than the
$104/night I paid for this dump er "tourist camp".

It is always unfortunate when facilities don't meet expectations and this individual obviously did not like the entire town, which has more than one horse and one paved road.

It is our duty, as responsible inn-keepers to accommodate guest to any reasonable length and had either the desk clerk who checked this party, or the owners, had known of these issues, we would have gladly made arrangements in another room or fully refund the charges.

As it was, we were not informed by this party until after the room was vacated and his comments were noted in our 60 second critic.

As to the cleanliness, trash and overall grubby-ness; I'm not sure what they are referring to.

Please know that we strive to make your stay here a pleasant experience!

If you are going to spend some time in Ft Davis, this is the place to stay. The rooms are clean, modern and a delightful change from the usual is rooms one encounters on the road. We stayed two nights and found the property delightful. The owner, Raymond, takes great pride in the complex and making everyone's stay as delightful as possible. Having a market (part of the motel) in front is a real plus as well as the pool and even hammocks. A real find in an out of the way, but fun, part of Texas.

My son-in-law and I took the boys to Ft Davis and Big Bend and stayed here all four nights. We were very pleased with the accommodations. We had one large room with 2 double beds and refrigerator and microwave and another with just the two beds. The place was very clean, the pool was great and the owner very nice - even loaned me a swim suit. Will stay there again when I take my wife to that area.

Room Tip: Variety of rooms including a "camping" style room.
