We're not cowboys, but who could resist the kitsch? We rented the honeymoon suite. The cow hide & horn settee was a scream. Clean, quiet...a little older hotel...but still pretty good. Only drawback we could find was the lights from the Big Texan Restaurant were on all night, and the hotel room was very lit up. Staff were nice, and... More

If you just want to have fun, this is your place. Over the top western decor, a pool in the shape of the state of Texas and a price tag that doesn't break the bank. The rooms are fun with each one a little different. Instead of shades or drapes, they have shutters on the windows and a swinging saloon... More

This place is large and out there and decorated like the wild west with cow hide imitation bed covers and table cloths. A great place for $80 a night. I loved it. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. It was about 117 degrees F when we were there so we needed to lay by the Teaxan shaped pool.... More

When I first heard of this place while planning my Route 66 vacation from Chicago to L.A., I looked on the website and said: "no way!" This place looks insane, way too touristy and campy - and I'll spend the night somewhere else, thank you very much. But as I traveled down Route 66, I changed my mind and made... More

my wife and i stayed here recently (our second visit) - i can tell you that if you must stay here becoz you are going to the big texan resturant - it is ok... but as far as a motel is concerned in its own right - look to others... tired, and just about run its race.. cheers

Best rest we have had in our travel. Handicap (disabled) room needs to be made more accessible with rail in shower & hand held shower. Currently is not really wheelchair accessable.

Loved this hotel. The rooms (along with the hotel itself) was quirky and a real experience. There were several different themes for the rooms, as shown with the bed covers. The rooms were clean and the beds comfy. Only complaint would be the bathrooms which were really showing their age and need to be redone. In saying that, whilst the... More

Fantastic Hotel, great value, fun rooms! On a travelling holiday, we only got one night in Texas, arriving early evening we checked in with no problems and went straight to the restaurant. Fantastic atmosphere, great steaks - best we have ever tasted! and great service. This motel was one of the most memorable on our trip. Would go back there... More

The facade of the motel resembles a street in an old West town and the room was really clean and spacious with chunky wooden furniture, fringed bed linens and curtains all decorated with the Texas five-pointed star. It's really excellent value for money. It's just across the parking lot from the restaurant which is fantastic.
