My husband and I stopped here on the last night of a motorcycle trip to West Texas. The hotel is "very good" for what it is,a budget, clean, road trip stop. Our experience was that the room was clean, the staff were friendly, and we had all of the basic necessities. I probably wouldn't stay here more than one night,... More

I arrived here later on a Wednesday night after 2 days riding in the bush and a 3 hour drive from Fort Davis. The manager was just amazing - and turns out he had wanted to move to NZ before settling in Del Rio! I was exhausted and grubby and on walking into my room I almost cried with happiness!... More

My partner and I decided to extend our trip to Big Bend by road-tripping through southwest Texas on our way back to Dallas. We stopped in Del Rio and needed to find a hotel just to crash in for the night (i.e., clean, comfortable, but not pricey). We found the Whispering Palms online through Trivago and decided to give it... More

We stayed at this place for a weekend. We are originally from Del Rio but this place was updated since we left so I didn't know what to expect. The room was nice and big. The bed was very large as well. As soon as you arrive they hand you bottles of water. We didn't eat the breakfase either day... More

This hotel was rated #1 by TripAdvisor. Great find! Cool, eclectic motel. Super clean, pet friendly, and great breakfast. It's a secure compound with lots of security cameras. Manuel's was right next door. Easy walk back after too many margaritas.
