Took a room with a king bed, lovely big bedroom, big bed, small bathroom, all beautifully presented. No breakfast included but nibbles and water in the room plus coffee maker and fresh coffee each morning in the...

I stayed here during the Blanco County Lavender festival and have nothing but great things to say about it. The owners were fabulous and helpful and the room was clean, comfy and cozy....especially after a long day of being outside. I could not have improved anything.

We found this place by the charm and how beautiful it appeared when driving by. The rates were great and the ambiance was exceptional. There were chips and cookies and nuts in a basket on the table, bottled water in the fridge, a home style quilt on the bed, and home style sheets. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and the...

Thank you Deborah and Ralph for taking such loving care of this iconic roadside motel. The big chain hotels/motels with their cookie cutter rooms ain't got nothing on the Blanco County Inn.

My husband and I recently stayed for the weekend and were pleasantly surprised. Blanco County Inn is an amazing deal for the low cost. The owners are incredibly friendly and offered great suggestions that provide accurate for good local eats.

Considering all of the great reviews, I almost feel guilty writing this. I rely on the T.A. community to make my travel picks and I have to say I am a bit disappointed in this one.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We let our customers decide whether they want to do nothing, or savor all the things Blanco & the Texas Hill Country have to offer. With that said we are an 80 year old motel, with rooms that have been remodeled over the last few years. All this to give our customers, and future friends, a charming "Hill Country" Experience! Being (we believe the motel was built in1932) we are 80 years old; we are the oldest lodging in Blanco County. Also, we are one of the oldest lodging establishments in the hill country. It was founded by Mary Lester as the Lester Courts when the State & Federal government was developing our state park system and when Route Number 66 was developed. No, not US Route 66, we think it was a state highway before it became US 281. So along with the road and the park here Mrs. Lester built the Lester courts. Wanting to slow down the frenzied pace of corporate life, my wife and I jumped at the chance to live in the hill country, and run a quaint little inn. As our retirement project we have had fun restoring the motel to a quaint "Boutique Motel" and meet people and new friends from all over the world. Ask us about some fresh eggs or soon our "Blanco County Honey!" ... more   less
