we are on our way to see Big Bend Park tomorrow so we found this place on line. We are on a budget as the Canadian dollar is going for a dump. The room is very clean wifi is very good and the TV works great. There is a little frig and microwave. Near the road but not that noisy.... More

We were on a bicycle trip and stumbled upon this wonderful motel. The outside is not fancy but the rooms are a surprise. It was decorated in western decor and very clean. The air conditioner, wifi and shower worked great. The price was reasonable. It was convenient to have the Dairy King across the street. They have excellent breakfast tacos.... More

I pulled into Sanderson as it was getting late. Knowing that I didn't want to drive the 120 miles on to Del Rio, where the motel would be found, I opened my eyes for lodging with fairly low expectations, considering how small Sanderson is. I was pleasantly surprised to come upon the Outback Oasis. The family that runs this place... More

The rooms are comfortable and clean, and being masonry they keep a pretty steady temperature. Some rooms have carports on either side,... More

I stayed here for my first time after attending to the Big Bend Open Road Race. It was a lot of fun and a great experience, but we were also out working on the course in the baking sun, dust and wind for over 12 hours. When I saw the Outback Oasis, I knew I had to stay there. The... More

The Outback Oasis Motel is an old very well maintained motel, with a very friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms were large, and very clean and, the the bath rooms were very large. The rooms were all furnished in 50's style western decor, there were also rockers and regular chairs on the front porches of the rooms. The pool area... More

I have been staying here even before Ruth and Roy owned this place. Beingf an avid snakehunter\collector, this motel has always been "snake friendly". Ruth and Roy have certainly helped put Snaderson on the map as a reptilian hub. They are personal friends of mine and they are super friendly people and treat everyone with the respect that they deserve.... More
