This place is run down and expensive. My room stunk like a musty basement. The bedding smelled dirty, the furniture is old, the place has not been updated in a long time. The grounds were littered with cigarette butts. For what they charge this place should be in much better shape. I would not stay here again.

Me and a mate stopped here for 1 night whilst exploring the amazing town of Bandera. We went to a couple of motels before, one did not even bother to show up (the lodges down the hill, forgot it's name) and one was too expensive and would not come down in price, so we pulled here and got a good...

Property NOT maintained. Very poor condition. One plate-glass window on the dining room (which is closed) was covered with particle board. The window would not lock, and there were no window screens on several rooms, so anyone could slide the window open and access the room. Property is dirty, and the restroom available for guests doesn't even have an interior...

I have stayed here several times, primarily because there are few other choices. The rooms aren't that bad, but are overpriced for the condition of the lodging. There is a decent restaurant on the premises, which does help a little.

The is by far the worst hotel I have encountered in the United States, and in the third world I have only been in a few worse. The beds are hard and uncomfortable. The rooms smell bad. The cleanliness of rooms and grounds is abysmal. The wifi is weak or non-existent in some rooms. The staff is clueless. Stay somewhere...

We went for the Labor Day festivities, and stayed at the Bandera Lodge. I thought we had time traveled back 20 years. The only thing I could say good about our stay was the AC worked and they had direct TV. The place was a mess, dirty, mold on the shower liner( no shower curtain ) towels were so thin...

This hotel needs an update badly. Outside is full of dirt and spider webs. Inside was clean, but needed paint and new furnishings. The place isn't terrible if the price wasn't so high, but this was the only place available for the date needed.

This place is rundown and overpriced. We should've pitched a tent in the woods. The rooms had big patch marks on the walls, the sink had rusty chip marks and the toilet had to think about flushing. My coworker had duct tape patches on his walls and the chairs had some funky stains.
