Fantastic place and something a bit different. The best of our route 66 stops. Very clean and modern. Interesting furnishings and comfy bed. The weather was quite severe outside so was nice to be somewhere comfortable and warm. Good meal next door and a good night's sleep. Will come again! Thank you!

Hotel is in a good part of town. Away from the hustle and bustle. When you arrive you already get a good vibe of the place and your instincts are right, The girls at the front desk were really fast and friendly no fusses at all to transition to your room. The room has the decor and architecture of a... More

Holy smokes giant spiders. I woke at about 2am to use the restroom an the walls were covered with spiders, poison spiders. I called the front desk and they said I could come down for a can of raid. I ended up sleeping in my truck the rest of that night. Won't go back!

We stayed at the Big Texan Steakhouse, Hotel and Horse Motel and took advantage of a Saturday night dinner at the steakhouse after checking in. We did have to wait about 30 minutes, but it was well worth it! Great food, fabulous servers, super-fun kitschy old west atmosphere! The hotel was clean and comfortable and our entire Big Texan experience... More

Friendly front staff. Rooms are not big about average. They're clean and the prices are more then fair. If you love the smell of grilling meat just step outside. But the best thing, Its just across from the big Texas steak ranch.

As it says in the title, if you're doing the 66 or just travelling across this part of the US and want to put a pin in the map for cool and unusual places then stay here. The rooms are themed and pretty funny. There was no fridge in the room but staff were quite accommodating storing medicine in their... More

Stayed as part of a contiki tour and as we drove up we had our own welcome contiki sign. Absolutely loved the theme rooms, such a cool motel. We went next door to the steakhouse and one of our group finished the famous steak. They even had games set up off our contiki group, couldn't have had better hospitality. And... More

I recently stayed in this hotel as part of a Contiki tour. I loved it! It was very clean and the staff were nice. The restaurant joined onto the hotel was great too, the steak was one of the best I've ever had, they even showed us how to line dance! I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is themed like an old western saloon. They are clean, but the rooms are small and in need of a makeover. Certainly very touristy and obvious that 95% of the people that stay here are just passing through to undertake the 72oz steak challenge at the Big Texan Steakhouse that is literally next door. Otherwise there is nothing... More

We stopped off at the Big Texan for one night as part of our Route 66 road trip, and found the place to be quite good fun! . Touristy.. Certainly ... but still the service was good and we had a great meal in the restaurant itself where we got a balcony view of two guys going for the 72oz... More
