Unique experience!

This is a brilliant hotel with unique rooms and a great diner downstairs. Would definitely recommend staying here. It is situated right in the heart of Fort Davis so perfectly placed for accessing other amenities.

My wife and I were accompanied by two other couples on a motorcycle ride to the Fort Davis area. We chose to stay at the Drug Store. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The AC was on in the rooms when we arrived so the rooms were comfortable. Excellent TV channel selection for this area as well.

Great stay

Perfect location. We were able to get close by street parking during spring break. The only downside was that I was hungry all the time because we could smell the food cooking downstairs. We weren't really in the room that much though. Wish we had our own coffee maker in the room

No breakfast included.

The room was clean and quiet. The downstairs has a restaurant which is tasty and busy. There was not a free breakfast included, but did offer free drinks (water, coffee, tea). I would have liked a menu in the room with the hours they serve breakfast/dinner so planning on meals would be convenient. There are a flight of stair to reach the rooms. The restaurant is closed on Saturday for worship/family.

Great authentic stay. Great service

I felt like I was truly back in the wild wild west. The room was sparse but adequate for a night's stay. Unfortunately, we were there for a Friday night star party at McDonald Observatory and the drug store closes Friday night & all day Saturday so we didn't get a chance to enjoy a breakfast in the restaurant. Very unusual place to stay for one night. Pie and ice cream were tasty.

Great Home Base to explore the area

Very friendly staff in the restaurant made our stay memorable. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Great location to serve as a home base while exploring Fort Davis, MacDonald Observatory, Marfa and other areas close by.

O.K. Establishment

Room was really cold. They could have turned on the heater before we checked in to make the room more pleasant, since they knew we were there. Which leads me to my next comment. My experience with other hotels is that if the room is ready even though you may be an hour ahead of check-in, they allow you to check-in. The lady here was not friendly at all about check-in. She said it had to be 3:00 p.m. no exceptions even though it was obvious the room was ready. Long hair was found in the bathtub - kind of grossed me out. Other than that, everything was fine.

Great choice

I confess I booked this hotel after I was unable to find availability in Marfa. It was the best twist of fate! Much closer to the things we were interested in visiting in the area (history and observatory) plus prettier, more scenic surroundings. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone.
