We made reservations for the RV park here. It is awful!!!! The whole place is rundown. Broken glass windows out of the old fort buildings. The RV park is way in the back and it was horrible! I cannot ... read more »

My husband and I stayed at the fort in humble motel accommodations. The springs on the grounds were such a welcome respite from the Texas heat. Well maintained and laid back surroundings had huge oaks... read more »
A great historical location to visit, talk to Phil at the museum, he is very knowledgeable about the fort's history. General George Patton was here as well as John Wayne. There is also an RV park on the premises and some great walking trails. Dog friendly, beware of cactus spines and sand spurs though.
If I could give this place negative stars, I would. The motel is disgusting. Idk when was the last time the carpets were vacuumed, AC is a joke, and there was literally urine stains on the bathroom walls. Bed sets were cheap, stained mattresses covered in the lowest quality bedding, that was torn and stained. The fancy armoire and vanity did not cover the fact that this place is a royal turd. The grounds are beautiful and the pictures online had me so excited. I guess the low price should have been a red flag. I knew when I had to jar the door open with my shoulder we were in trouble, and the disgusting smell that came out of the room confirmed that sinking feeling. I literally sat down and cried when I realized the scope of the delapidation. We are actually cutting our much anticipated vacation short and going home because we are so disappointed.
A great historical place to stay! Quiet and serene. Great Texas History, US History, and even Movie Histoy...John Wayne's the Alamo.
There wasn't a lot to tell you about it, except for the historic signs. It is a lot to see however, not exactly as pictured in the brochure they gave us.
Beautiful Fort, but way too many old people.
