I recently stayed in this hotel as part of a Contiki tour. I loved it! It was very clean and the staff were nice. The restaurant joined onto the hotel was great too, the steak was one of the best I've ever had, they even showed us how to line dance! I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is themed like an old western saloon. They are clean, but the rooms are small and in need of a makeover. Certainly very touristy and obvious that 95% of the people that stay here are just passing through to undertake the 72oz steak challenge at the Big Texan Steakhouse that is literally next door. Otherwise there is nothing... More

We stopped off at the Big Texan for one night as part of our Route 66 road trip, and found the place to be quite good fun! . Touristy.. Certainly ... but still the service was good and we had a great meal in the restaurant itself where we got a balcony view of two guys going for the 72oz... More

Pay attention to the other negative reviews, they're not kidding or just being mean spirited. I checked into a room after eating at the Big Texan Steakhouse next door. HORRIBLE idea. Long story short, the room was about as well insulated as a pup tent, the wind whistled through every crack in the place, the bathroom ceiling was rotting and... More

We arrived here late one night and were looking forward to eating at the adjoining restaurant - hadn't really planned on staying. We took it by chance and they had a room so we decided to stay. The first room we checked into was garishly decorated which we had expected. The wooden walls and decor were quite fitting with the... More

The owners here do not seem to know much about running a hotel/motel. Almost everyone here that I have spoken to has lied to me. Until they got my money, 12/20/2014, everyone lied to me. The next day the front desk attendant said she knew that the things I was told were untrue. She sympathized with me and said she... More

Stayed one night this past week while traveling from DFW area to Taos, NM. Thought it would be fun for a short night halfway in between. Had a late dinner next door which was decent. Motel stay was below average. Motel is across the parking lot from the main building. It is decorated like an old west town which is... More

We rolled in around midnight and were greeted by the nicest person I have ever met, Melissa at the desk. She made sure we were comfortable in a clean and toasty warm room. She let is know that Tanya Tucker was checking in and would be having breakfast in the restaurant early the next morning. She gave us fresh cream... More

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
