Stayed here on our Route 66 journey and it was also my girlfriends birthday that night. I asked for a bottle of wine and treats in the room which they did for a small charge, but they also upgraded us to the honeymoon suite for free which was very quirky and fun. They didn't need to do that but we... More

Stayed here on our summer 2014 Route 66 road trip. We booked our room by telephone around ten months in advance, to ensure we were not disappointed, glad we did as the Big Texan seems popular with tour groups and after we checked in around 30 Harley's pulled in and filled up the rest of the rooms. Our room was... More

Awesome atmosphere! I and 44 others stopped in here on a tour a week ago and was so pleasantly suprised by the dinner, drink specials, steak challenge and dance instructions we were greeted with! Great little pool, lovely staff who where keen to get in on our flip cup games held in the back room! An overall pleasant stay, just... More

We were looking forward to our stay at the Big Texan, having chosen it as part of our Route 66 honeymoon. When we drove up, we thought great - it's so kitschy and we'll get some great photos. When we went to check in, the lady who served us was devoid of any politeness. She was more interested in talking... More

This was part of our trip, and made reservations in advance. Beds were comfortable, but not enough electrical plugs. Small room, typical motel, but kids screaming late night, and difficult to find where it was coming from. Could have been the back part of the restaurant, but it was after 2300. There were also a lot of flies in the... More

Well-priced, clean hotel right next to the Big Texan Steak Ranch. Decorated-up Texas style and would be a great stop with kids. Convenient location on the way back home from Colorado. We stayed with two dogs in a dog friendly room. Sure, it's a little tacky, but they're going for a certain theme. It is priced right and by no... More

We stayed here for one night while travelling Route 66. The rooms were fabulous. We had a room in the block behind the pool with two double beds sharing with two small children. There was plenty of room and the kids loved the themed rooms and cattle bed spreads. My only issue with the room was the shower, perfect for... More

I made my reservation several months in advance and requested a ground floor room. And as usual, they honored my request. It is always a pleasure to return to this amalgam of fun, food and entertainment. It is Texas at its tacky best. The rooms are large, decorated in the true Texan style, immaculate and fun. Where else are you... More

Align your expectations with the kitsch factor- this place is not luxurious, but it is a great spot to lay your head after gobbling down a steak across the parking lot. The rooms are clean but this is a motel, so you may sleep best if you have brought your own pillow. Great that it is pet friendly and super... More
