Clean...comfortable...spectacular communion with the majestic splendor of West Texas! Management is excellent....as is meeting the most interesting people who chose to make the journey out to this very, very remote locale.

Chinati is everything you could want, if you want to escape the hectic world around you. This is a truly back to nature experience all the way around. It's quiet- SO quiet. Almost spooky quiet for a city slicker. It's like camping, but with all the modern amenities- sans cell service. Which- let's be honest- you NEED to get away... More

Sweet little spot in the middle of nowhere. The cool pool has incredible views and is quite refreshing. The warm pool and indoor tubs are inviting and very relaxing. The grounds are perfectly kept. My room was rustic, yet charming. My only complaint was that I awoke in the middle of the night being very hot and uncomfortable. Only to... More

I am glad you had a good time but I am sorry that you woke up hot. I do have a mattress cover that zips around the whole mattress but I also have a cloth one on top. I put these on to protect against bed bugs and also from damage from guests wetting the bed. These keep the mattresses... More

My husband and I stayed here after tent camping for four nights at Chisos Basin in Big Bend NP. We were booked to stay three nights in "El Presidente" but received a message from Mattie, the caretaker, that there was a plumbing problem. Since we had already taken down our campsite I let Mattie know we were headed there anyway.... More

My wife and I stayed one night at Chinati Hot Springs during a 9-day trip through the Big Bend Area. This was the highlight of our trip and we are making plans to return soon. Like others have written, the hot spring tub is very relaxing and the place in general is just very remote and peaceful. The sunset was... More

I am a little late with my review...First I didn't spend the night only because I didn't have time. I wish that I did! It's remote and relaxing and perfect. I was told by another guest to always call ahead to make sure it's hot! We had a great time the afternoon we spent here. It's beautiful!

Where do I begin. This place exceeded my every expectation from the majestic location and views to fresh spring fed pool and hot spring hot tub and views to quaint cozy casita house. We stayed in the El Presidente, my boyfriend had to drag me away when it was time to leave. We meet some amazing diverse cool people in... More

Chinati Hot Springs is one of my favorite places to "get away" from the "big city" life in Alpine. The drive down there, alone, is a nice get away in itself! I absolutely love to camp there, but do enjoy staying in the rooms. They are always so clean and cozy. In the colder months, I enjoy the outdoor hot... More

Ain't nothin beating this. The ladies were wonderful hosts to a weary traveler. Don't go there looking for what society calls luxury. Tons of birds. Lots of solitude. What you're gonna get is actual luxury. Hope to return soon.

Our trip was during a cold snap, so outdoor pool was not used. No telephone, cell service, TV, or wifi here, so be prepared to go totally off the grid and get back to nature or read a book. Community kitchen was clean and had everything you need to cook what food you bring. Bed was very comfortable in our... More
