This place was amazing! The staff were very polite and accommodating. My wife and I stayed here the night of our wedding and they had the room all set up the way I asked. The romance package was worth every penny. I definitely recommend staying here! The breakfast enchiladas in the morning were delicious.

What a peaceful retreat! We live in Colorado and headed to a wedding in Kansas. At the last minute we decided to do a road trip and headed out through Texas. So glad we did! The pictures on their website do not do justice to this hideaway! We stayed in the Pinon room and could not have been happier! Secluded... More

We have a future reservation I September, but wanted to try a different cabin. School starts Monday, so we were both off and decided to get away. This retreat is 15 minutes from home, but it is like stepping into a different world for a night.Each cabin is private and has a hot tub. That is the biggest advantage. I... More

We are in our mid sixties, iive in Florida and travel by car extensively. We try to stay in Historic places when we can. That is what brought us to the Starlight Canyon. We arrived around 5:30 and were greated by Megan who was filling in for the owners. She was very nice and helpful. The main building is beautiful... More

If you find yourself in Amarillo overnight, stay at Starlight Canyon. For the cost of a hotel you get personal and attentive service from the owners, amazing accommodations and your own personal hot tub. The romantic dinner and patio candles are worth the price. I highly recommend Starlight Canyon.

If you're in the Palo Duro Canyon area the Starlight is the perfect place to stay about 25 minutes from the park. The cabins are done in western chic with gorgeous appointments, wood burning fireplace and private hot tub, mini fridge and coffee maker, set on manicured surroundings. They do a lot of weddings there amongst the towering live oaks.... More

Stayed here on our way to Colorado from Houston. If you are looking for something different than the reg express inn, this would be it. You drop down into the Palo Duro canyon that you can't believe is even there. Only four units, very private...never saw other guests or the owners.

My husband and I stayed one night and had a wonderful experience! We stayed in the Mesquite cabin, which was immaculate, warm and inviting. The hot tub was wonderful as well as the jet bathtub. The property was absolutely breathtaking and did not feel like you were in Amarillo Texas. This is the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy a... More

On a Thursday night we stayed in the Mesquite cabin, which is very well equipped. The living room has a real fireplace, and the furniture includes a sofa, an easy chair, a desk, and a large flat-screen TV. There's a kitchenette with a sink, a microwave, a small fridge, and a coffeemaker. It's all decorated nicely, without the clutter that's... More
