We stayed here one night on the way to Yellowstone. The room that we stayed in was a cowboy themed room, with cowboy bedspreads, and a swinging bar door between the bedroom and the bathroom. Beds were comforatble, soft sheets. Didn't like the door between the beds and the bathroom. It made noise when someone went to the bathroom in... More

We had a blast. Yes it isn't luxury but it's definitely a destination motel and much worth it. The rooms literally had every little detail covered with the Texas theme. Room was clean, the pool was great, and the location perfect. Not to mention the perfect dinner. Yum!!!! There's a reason that place sells out all the time. My husband... More

We stayed here for one night when passing through as part of our road trip. Things didn't get off to a good start when they had no record of our reservation that was made months ago. At first their approach was fairly disinterested and they were pretty convinced it was our fault. When I pulled out an Email confirmation their... More

Did a one night stay here during a Texas roadtrip, and really really liked the hotel (restaurant review is separate). Check in was easy, the place looks really kooky - all bright colors in a faux old-west style facade. The room itself was great; super Texan themed while still having all the relevant amenities. Clean, bed was very comfortable indeed,... More

Stayed here one night on Contiki - all the rooms are highly themed with cowboy/western style which is cool! Motel is a bit run down and older but the bed was seriously comfortable and had a thick duvet - not hard with limited blankets like many other places we stayed in. Fridge was helpful to store snacks and water. Heating... More

We spent a night here as part of our Route 66 trip. I did not research in advance so was delighted when we arrived to find the novelty motel and the even funnier big Texan steak ranch. This was one of my favourite nights of the trip!! The rooms are well decorated - felt like we were staying in a... More

Stayed here last September on our Route 66 trip. It really is a must stop iconic motel, as it's practically on top of Route 66 and represents a lot of what Route 66 is all about. The rooms are small but functional. Fairly 'no frills' but clean and do what they're supposed to do. As it's a stone's throw from... More

Absolutely awesome for our Contiki group we didn't have to leave the area at all for the night we stayed there! We stayed in our amazingly decorated Texan style rooms (see photos) then we had dinner at the Texan Steakhouse which was awesome and then we partied on after and one of the guys even taught us how to line...

We often stay in budget hotels and are used to places that are worn or a little outdated, and are pretty tolerant of that. We decided to stay at the Big Texan while we toured Palo Duro Canyon. What a mistake. The room was dirty - food on the floors behind the nightstand and bed skirts dirty. The table top... More
