Fodor's Expert Review Y.O. Ranch Resort Hotel and Conference Center
2033 Sidney Baker, Kerrville, Texas, 78028, USA
You may be on one of the bustling main streets of Kerrville, but a stay at the Y.O. Ranch Resort is a little like a retreat to a star 1950s dude ranch. No, there aren't horses or hayrides, but the rooms are all decorated in a Western theme, with exposed limestone walls and old-fashioned fixtures and curtains. Almost every room has a set of mounted deer antlers, just in case you were beginning to forget you were in Texas. The main lobby flaunts the Lone Star State's attributes as well: it displays more than 40 full mounts of exotic game along the high limestone walls and a life-sized sculpture of a cowboy on a bucking bronco. A special family suite includes a separate room for kids with bunk beds.
