Hotel is a little dated, but staff was very friendly and accommodating. Complimentary breakfast was very nice. Sandwich I had in Gentleman's Club was also good. Shuttle to and from Southfork Ranch was prompt and drivers were friendly. However, as a previous review stated, keys are deactivated for outside doors BEFORE check-out time, early in the morning, in fact. We... More

I was going to give this high ratings, as the people were really awesome and everything was nice, albeit a bit dated. However, on the morning of our check out, our keys quit working while we were at breakfast - well before the noon checkout time. Unfortunately we didn't notice until we got locked outside in the back, and had... More

Clean, great guest services and an overall great environment. Bridie and Joann at the front desk are two wonderful ladies. And the driver that took us to Southfork Ranch was awesome as well. I will definitely be staying here again. Nice, cozy and comfortable!!

Check-in took forever, because the guy talks and talks, but he was nice. Told me I was upgraded to a full breakfast (which turned out at breakfast either they didn't get the memo or he was just making it up? No idea.) Room was nice and very clean. I liked the cream colored towels - one gets tired of all... More

Average is not bad, it's just not great, but we were happy to get a very reasonable package deal through an on line promotion that included a tour of the Southfork Ranch, a king sized room, and breakfast for about $80. Yee Hawww. The ranch itself is a bit of a let down. You realize how small the house is... More

Stayed at the hotel for a wedding reception at the ranch. Friendly staff,nice bar area and a good breakfast which is included. The rooms really need updated though. I don't think the parent company has put much back into the facility in quite a while. It was clean though.

We had a blast !! The staff went out of thier way to be helpful and was very friendly. After the party at Southfork Ranch, they let us hangout in the restaurant area after it closed and play games and we had pizza delivered. The pool has a wheelchair lift, but we didn't use the pool. They shuttled us back... More

I travelled from London to Dallas with my sister last week to celebrate my 30th birthday and we stayed at the Southfork Hotel (as I am a huge fan of the Dallas TV show and wanted to visit Southfork Ranch). We had the Executive Suites which were very spacious and luxurious! The staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The... More

There were some great and not-so-great things here. For example, the bathroom faucet looked newer but the paint was peeling above shower. There was this great tile countertop in the room but also a big crack in the plaster from the heater to the window and an outlet didn't work. One of the blankets had a hole where you could... More

We had such a wonderful visit at the hotel. We stopped because I am a Dallas tv fan and was planning a trip to Southfork. We were treated so well by the staff and the room was beautiful.
