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. I had dreams about what it would look like and I wasn't disappointed. It was all decorated like Dallas. We even went... More

Came into Big D for some fun and shopping in the Plano area. We decided to stay at Southfork because of the nostalgia of the show Dallas. We were surprised by the nonstop showings and all of the memorabilia. The rooms were cozy but the TV's NEED to be updated and replaced for several and obvious reasons. The breakfast was... More

Very nice property in Plano. Went there because we took advantage of a package that included full breakfast and a visit to the Southfork ranch. Where else can you get 24/7 showings of Dallas . Room was very comfortable, clean, and nicely appointed. Staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Spend the extra $ and stay in JR's suite.

Old and outdated and old smell that have been years and years. Need to change and the management do not care of their guests who complain the old and stinky smell. They need to change the management there who care of their guests and get the things that need to be fixed. No way to go back there

This place is old and outdated. Kind if reminds me of the Hotel in The Shinning only older. The grounds are just as outdated as the rooms except being outside you get fresh air. This place is extremely depressing.

I was leary about this place because it looks a little old from the outside, however I was surprised by the large rooms, quite halls and very nice restaurants. As the name says, the hotel parent company owns the Southfork Ranch from the TV show Dallas and the halls have a lot of Dallas memorabilia hanging on them. The pool... More
