We stayed here on our authentic Route 66 trip. This hotel was cute from the moment we pulled into the drive. Our room was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. We had dinner at the steak house and were also pleased. The gift shop was great for our knick knacks and souvenirs. We would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here with the girlfriend in September. It was our first time ever in Texas, so the old ranch style hotel was pretty cool for us. The room was pretty small, but it was clean. The pool in the shape of Texas was awesome too. The restaurant is next door was amazing! We really liked this place!

Amarillo is a halfway point for several of our road trips and kids always ask to stay at the motel when we stop next door for dinner. This trip we obliged and were pleased! Pre trip they called to confirm because I had accidentally booked twice and they didn't want to overcharge me - nice! Check in was a breeze... More

The first time we stayed here, it was great. The decor was our style and the place unique. We decided to stay again on our way back home. The beds were broken down, you could feel every spring stabbing you in the back. The covers were covered in dirt. I attempted to pull the covers up and got a dirt... More

We made a reservation for a king room, but upon arrival was informed there was no hot water in that building and we were given a queen room in the back building. The room was awful. First of all, the wifi does not work in the back building. The room had numerous issues! Basically they are trying (unsuccessfully) to take... More

I have to say that for the price, I really was surprisingly impressed with the size of the room. The room (in the part that accepts dogs) was clean, quiet, far away from the highway, and themed perfectly well! We really enjoyed staying at the Big Texan Motel rather than a chain that accepts dogs. We had dinner in the... More

We enjoy staying at the motel because of its western theme and charm. It is dates as to accessories - the suede bed coverings are stained and need repair and the pillows are flat and uncomfortable. The swinging doors need to be lubricated. With just a bit of attention this property could be much nicer.

It was a very neat building we were in. The back was for smoking and pets, but I thought" oh no: way in the back....but it was actually the best. away from the busy front. Loved it and found out we could go anywhere around town for free...yes, the Limosine service is free!! I will stay again. I do not... More

OK - I stayed here for a night because I was driving thru and wanted to way at the restaurant. What can I say? It's kitschy. Do it once. Staff is nice rooms are basic cinder block dorm types with western flare. Meh. Fun but just once. Unless you have your horse. Then mos defense stay here. Room appears clean.... More
