We could forgive the dated decoration, the lack of wifi, the old TV because the location is beautiful and the staff are really kind, but it's dirty. There were mouse droppings in the bedroom, the floors were filthy, the bathtub didn't drain...To top it off, everything is shut down and somewhat abandoned. I've been here before and loved it since...

We went over Spring Break and my granddaughter had a wonderful time. We had a two bedroom lockoff that overlook the water park. The people providing us service were ALL wonderful. Always offering help, directions, suggestions. They even provided us the "best" places to eat in town, even though they have food at the resort. We are hoping to go...

We spent a fabulous week at the Flying L! The cowboy-themed resort had everything we could have wanted to include a clean, comfortable suite, golf, horseback riding with a fantastic guide/wrangler, the super nearby town of Bandara (the Cowboy Capital of the World) and short drives to both San Antonio and Fredericksburg. The staff of the Flying L we're so...

We stayed with our two young boys (aged 5 and 18 months) and we all loved it! Sure there were areas to improve on but overall the charm of this place well outweighed that. We stayed in a Fort Apache cabin and the kids absolutely loved it. Had everything we needed in the room - a fridge, table, bunks for...

It's my 3rd year to attend a golf tournament at the Flying L. They give us a great package deal and I've always enjoyed the stay. It's a beautiful golf course that also tests my game.
