The Texan Guest Ranch is the best kept secret in McAllen, TX! I stayed here from October through December for a work assignment, and I have absolutely no complaints. From the housekeepers, to the office staff they made me feel right at home. The room was perfect for what I needed, and they even have a onsite laundry facility. Knowing... More

After 29 years of returning to the same place for the winter months, should show my satisfaction for calling it my Home Away from Home. During those years other places were compared but the rustic apartments, Modern suites, and mobiles (lived in different ones), heated pool, the spa and club house where you can meet new and old friends (play...

We have called the Texan Guest Ranch home for the past 16 winters. It is a jewel in the Valley, a haven for Winter Texans in a tropical setting with accommodations to meet every need: apartments, suites, R.V. sites, mobile homes and even a "bunkhouse" for our visitors to stay. We stay in the older "historic" apartments and are very... More

When we decided to winter in Texas we were thrilled to find the Texan Guest Ranch. It is a terrific place to spend the winter. We stay in one of the apartments which is completely furnished and provides us with the best of everything - lots of space, parking right out our front door, nice patio on the back side... More

We have spent12 winters at the Texan Guest Ranch, and we always look forward to our next stay. The location is excellent! A quiet oasis tucked away between orange groves, yet only minutes from and convenient to shopping, theaters, golf, churches etc. Sandy and her staff - office, maintenance, housekeeping - are welcoming, efficient, and respectful of your schedules and...

We have been Winter Texans staying at the Texan Guest Ranch for over 5 years now and obviously the fact that we keep returning should tell something. The accommodations and grounds of the Texan Guest Ranch are good and clean although some of the furniture is old and dated. The staff is continuously upgrading the units - such as new... More

My husband and I began to visit the Texan Guest Ranch several years ago. We have always been welcomed by a quite helpful staff. The Ranch is a beautiful oasis. The lodge, pool, roads, apartments, and lots are clean and neat. We are planning to stay in Texas for over two months this winter. We can't wait to enjoy our... More

We have been going to the Texan Guest Ranch for 5 years. We have had nothing but great service from the office and maintenance staff and especially from Sandy Womack. Everybody is very accommodating and very pleasant. The other Winter Texan's we know have been going to the Texas Guest Ranch for many years longer than we have. That should... More

After 16 years on the road, this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review- hopefully I can spare at least one other weary traveler from making the mistake of staying here. The Texan Guest Ranch, McAllen, Texas, is the most inhospitable place in Texas. You will feel as though you have moved in with total... More

Unfortunately for both guest and host he brought multiple cats violating our no pet policies. Our request for removal of cats and cleaning therefrom, resulted in this "review" as retaliation on manager and business as per his threat. He was our guest for 3 months and until the pet episode, the only complaint we received was a noise from a... More

Texan Guest Ranch is a great place!!! I don't know what these other reviewer are talking about maybe their past employees that just want to be mean. I've stayed here in the summer, fall, and winter months and it is always consistent with great service and amenities. My family has been coming here for many years "because of" all the... More
