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

This is our 2nd stay in two years...why?? We knew the place was filthy from the first stay...it was the EXCELLENT STRIP STEAK at the restuarant the pulled us off the hwy for another try. The room is still gross even though the hotel is in reno mode, maybe in a couple of years it'll be up to average. There... 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 The bathtub and fixtures are outdated but they work and are clean.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

My bet is they wanted to recreate the aura of Wild West and saloon rooms. It`s not so easy if your is equipped with flat TV and Wi Fi... Rooms are small, yet the bathroom is extra small. The main furniture is bed. There`s not much space for anything else. If you want a good Wi Fi signal take a... More

If you're looking for five-star accommodations, you ain't gonna get it here. However, if you have any sense of humor and shtick then this is the place for you, especially if you're REALLY hungry - the Big Texan Restaurant and Ranch is in the same parking lot. The motel is comfortable enough and contains the basic amenities for road-weary and... More

Let's just cut to the chase. Good fun this motel is. Comfort and luxury it is not. Thankfully we had plenty of beers at the adjoining Big Texan Bar that meant I slept like a baby, but the room was a throw back from the 80s and the jacuzzi bath sounded like it would wake the neighbourhood. Reasonably clean, but... More

Stayed here as part of a Contiki tour twice. As I cannot compare rooms (As I had the exact same room both times) I can say that it is an excellent stay! The huge benefit of it being across the carpark to The Bg Texan Steakhouse is the huge advantage!!!! You can drink all you like then wonder across the... More

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
