Just off the I40 you can't miss it, BIG statue of a cowboy!. Swift check in and V. Friendly welcome from reception, NB ONLY get wifi in reception!. Close to the road, but not really an issue. Lovely open air pool, very welcome in the 100F August heat. Room were fine, clean but not luxurious, real feeling of a cowboy... More

The room was very comfortable and the staff pleasant and courteous. Our room was decorated to match the theme of the area and very nice. The hotel was very quaint and looked like a western town from days gone by. We never saw the other rooms but it looked very nice. We did not use the pool so unsure how... More

My destination was The Big Texan Steak Ranch, but the motel there was a good and welcome surprise. Located right next door and decorated in Texas/ Mexican style, it was priced very reasonably, comfortable and clean. Vanessa was very helpful, friendly and at ease as she checked me in. I immediately knew I had picked the right place to spend... More

The wife and I stayed here on our way through Amarillo, it is kind of a neat quirky place. it's decorated up in the Old West theme, and the rooms are clean comfortable and adequate but done up in bunkhouse style. While traveling route 66 and going through texts it just seemed appropriate to stay at a Texas themed Motel,... More

I actually stayed in this hotel in Late June in 2010 but have only just joined trip advisor and wanted to write a review about some of the best places I have stayed in. My husband and I did a lot of travelling in the U.S. (Passing through 27 states!) but I can honestly say I had the best night... More

The Big Texan Motel is fantastic as a quirky experience! The facade of the hotel looks like a Wild West street front and its proximity to the Big Texan Steak Ranch makes it ideal for a great holiday experience. The rooms are basic and ours was in need of a refresh. The bathroom has a sagging ceiling above the shower... More

This place really is built for tourists but fab and fun! As part of doing Route 66 we stayed over and on arrival were very excited about the look of the motel. Check in was very smooth, staff were very friendly. Wifi available free of charge and access to the Texan shaped swimming pool. The room was a little dated... More

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
