the hotel is close to the big texan steakhouse, has pretty cool room (each one is different). Rooms were clean and also very quiet. We had ours on the ground floor. We did not have the time to us the Texas state formed pool which was a shame because we had close to 40 degree c.

The hotel was so fun!! The room was Texas themed. Not new or modern, but clean. Woman in the front office were very sweet and helpful. The property is historic and also has a horse hotel so people traveling with their horses can stay overnight. Very fun. The adjoining restaurant was delish!!

Our room was on the first floor. It was dark even with all of the lights on and the suede bedspreads were heavy and hot. Those saloon style doors to the bathroom may have seemed a good idea to the decorator but quickly became incredibly annoying. The Vending/Laundry area was filthy. The vending machines were nearly empty and one of... More

Stayed here Oct 13 as part of a tour. The hotel itself is pretty cool to look at with each room differently decorated to fit its own theme, and the Texan state shaped pool was cool, however it was closed when we stayed. The bed was big and very comfortable and the room was spacious. The walls however were extremely... More

The hotel is next to the Big Texan Steak Ranch, which is the real reason to stay here. The rooms are decorated in Texas kitsch which is kind of fun. Lots of bikers and Route 66 travelers stay here for the restaurant and for the convenience.

The hotel was great, the rooms were warm, clean and comfortable, and was located right next door to the Big Texan Steak Ranch, which was great. The rooms were older but they had a lot of Texan character which we loved.

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
