Y.O. Ranch Hotel & Conference Center

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Western-themed hotel featuring 19th-century antiques, exotic game trophies and chandeliers with branding irons hanging from them
  • Family rooms feature an alcove with a bunk bed for kids
  • Visit the Y.O. Ranch (an hour drive away) for horseback riding, or go wine tasting at nearby Hill Country wineries
  • Play sand volleyball, tennis and basketball or relax in the outdoor pool and hot tub


For a flashback to the Old West, head to the Y.O. Ranch Hotel & Conference Center, located in Kerrville, about an hour drive from San Antonio. Although the hotel isn't set on a ranch, it is named after and inspired by the nearby Y.O. Ranch, where guests can go horseback riding or hunting. The hotel is decked out with Western-themed decor including more than 40 game trophies mounted to the walls and 19th-century antiques. 

Guest rooms carry on the Western theme in the decor. Rooms feature wood furnishings, Saltillo tiled flooring and a patio or balcony. Despite the Old West style, the rooms still offer updated technology including flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and refrigerators. Most suites also have wood-burning fireplaces. Family rooms here come with an alcove with a built-in bunk bed and activity desk so kids can have their own space away from mom and dad.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Branding Iron Restaurant, and the Elm Waterhole Saloon offers a 19th century-inspired space to enjoy a cocktail while playing pool or watching sports. Head to the saloon Monday through Friday from 5-7 p.m. for complimentary hors d'oeuvres.

Relax in the outdoor swimming pool with a separate kids pool as well as a hot tub. There's plenty to do on site including sand volleyball, tennis and basketball. Drive to nearby golf courses, Hill Country wineries and Y.O. Ranch.
