Together with 3 of our children and their families, 10 people all together, went RV camping in Garner State park. We, the parents checked into the Inn just 7 miles away. We wanted the comfort of a real bed. This place had everything we needed for a few days since all we did was sleep there. For a country Inn...

Stayed in one of the little motel rooms for one night and was disappointed. I understand they're "rustic" but chipped paint and rust in the sink needs attention. I understand the larger cabins have been updated so that may be the way to go.

We just needed a place to sleep as we spent the remainder of our time with family at another rental on the river. We had one of the cabins with two double beds. It's old, but was clean. The beds were some of the hardest mattresses I have ever slept on and it would have been nice to have an...

The beds were hard. There was no kitchen table/chairs in the "kitchen", no place to sit other than on the beds. No dishes. 2 coffee cups [we were three people] For the price I expected better. Mattresses are not for older people with arthritis and fibromyalgia. Man in office acted affronted, and argued with me, when I asked for a...

The Leakey Inn rooms do not have kitchens. They are set up motel style with a picnic table and BBQ pit outside. Guests enjoy the on premise pool and pavilion. All of our cabins were completely remodeled in the fall of 2015 and we have received many compliments on the improvements we have made over the past few years that...

A very nice old place to stay, But very clean and quiet. Good Wifi and color TV. The furniture and all the items in the rooms are 100 years old are almost a 100 years old. The whole place was furnished in antiques.

We have been visiting the Frio River for many years and it's a family favorite. We have always had great accommodations. The scenery is majestic. This is our first year staying in Leakey and we look forward to returning next year.

The service was great. The scenery was fantastic. The staff were friendly and the weather was great. Went to ride the 3 sisters and visit Garner State Park and the Frio River. What more could you ask for!

Great place to stay with the family. Close to several places to eat out and then still enjoy the river. The pool is fabulous and we enjoyed the deer watching from our back porch every evening. Pet friendly is a great plus! Staying again this summer!!
