When we drove in to the driveway, I knew this would be the best hotel to stay in. I wasn't wrong. Over our 8 week road trip of USA, we were going to stay in over 25 hotels & this was my favourite! The themed rooms were AWESOME- they even had cow hide floor rugs. The SWIMMING POOL was the... More

I've passed through the area traveling a few times and have always stopped by here to eat but for the first time we stayed in the hotel. We loved it there. The rooms were nice and clean. The front staff was very friendly. Love the history that goes with this place and the atmosphere!

My husband and I stayed here as part of our route 66 adventure. It was a lovely room with all amenities needed for an overnight stay. It looks amazing from outside, a proper old wild west town and the rooms are decorated to match. My husband did not sleep overly well as he really didn't like the pillows but I... More

Hotel was clean had wi fi but was not very good in the room but could get it in the Lobby or the steakhouse for free. Very authentic not the quietest room with the traffic and the noise from other...

Western stile big rooms, everything made from cattle skin, even curtain in the bathroom. Wi-Fi works only in the lobby. I think $90 is a bit high price - the motel was empty! I guess $60-70 is more accurate value. Of coarse you must visit the restaurant Big Texan - what is another reason to stay here?!

this hotel was a must stop on our Route 66 trip. I booked months in advance. Loved the exterior , it's something so different from the norm. Unfortunately when we arrived the pool was closed for some reason , it was mid afternoon on a really hot day and I had been looking forward to a dip in the Texas... More

The Big Texan Inn/Motel in Amarillo is a quaint place with interesting exterior decor. The interior is a bit more rustic than need be, and the swinging saloon style doors leading to the bathroom were more nuisance than anything. My room did appear to be clean, but I ended up checking out and getting a refund. The trouble occurred in... More

We've passed by the Big Texan for years and finally decided to stay as part of a Route 66 drive. We had a room in the back building, which was very quiet (the tour groups were near the office). The decor is fun, very western, but the furnishing could use work. We had two queens, both of which had mattresses... More

I have been staying at this hotel for over 30 years, and always adjust my trip when were in the area so we can stay here again The rooms are always clean and a western rustic look, and an especially good value for under $80 the best part is an easy walk across the parking lot for a great steak!
