My husband and I stayed at the fort in humble motel accommodations. The springs on the grounds were such a welcome respite from the Texas heat. Well maintained and laid back surroundings had huge oaks to set up chairs, etc. We will return, for sure.

Very historical place with tons of knowledgeable people to tell people about the Fort from the very beginning. A lot of the building are still in use today from when John Wayne filmed The Alamo.

You can pay a fee at the front gate if all you want to do is use the pool.
