Pay attention to the other negative reviews, they're not kidding or just being mean spirited. I checked into a room after eating at the Big Texan Steakhouse next door. HORRIBLE idea. Long story short, the room was about as well insulated as a pup tent, the wind whistled through every crack in the place, the bathroom ceiling was rotting and... More

We arrived here late one night and were looking forward to eating at the adjoining restaurant - hadn't really planned on staying. We took it by chance and they had a room so we decided to stay. The first room we checked into was garishly decorated which we had expected. The wooden walls and decor were quite fitting with the... More

The owners here do not seem to know much about running a hotel/motel. Almost everyone here that I have spoken to has lied to me. Until they got my money, 12/20/2014, everyone lied to me. The next day the front desk attendant said she knew that the things I was told were untrue. She sympathized with me and said she... More

Stayed one night this past week while traveling from DFW area to Taos, NM. Thought it would be fun for a short night halfway in between. Had a late dinner next door which was decent. Motel stay was below average. Motel is across the parking lot from the main building. It is decorated like an old west town which is... More

We rolled in around midnight and were greeted by the nicest person I have ever met, Melissa at the desk. She made sure we were comfortable in a clean and toasty warm room. She let is know that Tanya Tucker was checking in and would be having breakfast in the restaurant early the next morning. She gave us fresh cream... More

Having always wanted to eat at the Big Texan our stay was slightly disappointing. Our first room had a broken toilet but this was handled quickly and we moved next door. The room had 2 double beds, fridge and the bathroom a small tub. The room hadn't been well cleaned at the bathroom was grubby. Lots of motels in the... More

My sons loved it. The decor is all western. Service was great. Only complaint is the heater sounded like it was going to die and the room was cold when we walked in. I will definitely stay again. The bathtub and fixtures are outdated but they work and are clean. I was happy to see the fridge and microwave considering... More

My husband and I had stopped at the Big Texan Steakhouse before, so when we drove through again, we decided to just stay there, too. The entire complex is a tourist destination with the Wild West theme throughout. The rooms are strictly average for an average or a little above price. Decorated totally in a western style, even the entry... More

Loved it here. The theme is done with much humor and love. Even the shower curtain is made to look leather. It was clean and fun ... but though a weathered look is great for the theme I would have prefered an updated bathroom. The bathroom did let the place down a little. Yet after a delicious dinner in the... More
