It was good
It was a good place, close to what we had planed to do on our trip.
Location and neighborhood/facility
This is actually a great value. The location is perfect however the neighborhood is not the best. It was very quiet and uneventful but some abandoned properties with junk on them. Also - a centipede came in the bathtub through the drain so next time we will flush water down the drains and keep them closed.
Otherwise this is clean, well-maintained, and very comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.
Really nice on the inside and easy access to everything
Very clean! Great location!
They have everything you will need for your stay. Plenty of parking. Overall it's a great place!
Comfortable place to relax, cook and work in between exploring the area.
The Prickly Pear has everything you need in a trip to the Fort Davis area. The house is spacious for a family or group of friends. Fort Davis is a beautiful and relaxing place to visit. It’s just 20 to 30 minutes to other areas like Marfa and Alpine and just a few hours to Big Bend Ranch State Park. We had an amazing time!
It made my vacation possible because it was so affordable
I don't need much when I travel because I spend most of my time outside, so this place worked out well for me. It was spotless when I arrived and it was clear that they had thought of just about everything. The pictures reflect the property perfectly.
The only negative were the beds. Those mattresses are way too old to still be in use and the plastic covering underneath very old and thin linens will leave you sweating all night. One twin mattress didn't have the plastic on it, so I tried it out. It was still incredibly uncomfortable. So much so that I drove to Alpine the next day and bought one of those egg crate mattress toppers, some sheets and a couple of pillows. It definitely helped.
If the mattresses aren't able to be replaced at this time, I'd suggest traveling with some comfortable bedding for your stay. I personally wouldn't mind paying a higher rate for new mattresses.
Other than that, it's quiet, clean, nobody bothers you, and it's close to so many things around. If you're with a group or family, there's plenty of board and card games and a pretty sweet movie collection.
