Perfect little spot if you're on a budget. Super close to great restaurants and coffee shops. Tiny bathrooms, not many outlets, and televisions that don't really work -- but who really needs all that anyway? :) Kick up your feet in the morning and night and sip some beverages. Would return again and recommend to others.

We stayed in their large Santa Fe Suite over Spring Break, which is Big Bend's busiest season. We were lucky to get such a nice place as late as we booked. The condo was huge. Big bedroom with king size bed and coach, big living room with 2 futons, a couch, recliner chair, TV and DVD player. Honestly, one of... More

Stayed in a 1 BR condo, #38 and was greatly surprised and pleased. Especially after reading the reviews. The condo is a small duplex house, up on a hill, across the road from the main hotel, with great views of the surrounding mountains. The condo is very spacious with a good sized living room/dining area/kitchen combo. A very large bedroom... More

When I first walked in the room in the motel, I was overwhelmed by the smell of bug spray. And then I saw the room. I think they filmed one of the scenes from 'No Country for Old Men' here. I was late in booking a room in Terlingua and I will never be again. Everything in the town is... More

If you're into high comfort, then this isn't the place for you. Then again, Big Bend is probably not your kind of place if you're into five-star lodgings. On the other hand, if you're OK with a rustic, no-frills kind of place, then you'll do just fine here, and you'll really enjoy the low price. A basic room is essentially... More

I booked a "home" in this place. Comes with two bedrooms, a dining room, a living room and a kitchen,. Has one bathroom only. I was a bit apprehensive when booking first as they wanted me to mail them a check. In any case since the Chisos Mountain Lodge was overbooked, I just booked this place. Looked it up on... More

It is no different then most businesses in the area. Everything is overpriced! The furnishings are outdated, but the room was very clean. It is carpeted with two full-size beds, a table, two chairs, a TV and an alarm clock. The bathroom is small (not much space by door) and the vanity outlet doesn't work. We had to walk to... More

Bed in master bedroom was adequate, but the room was supposed to accommodate four guests with a sofa or futon in the living room. Our room had a futon that was so old that it leaned to one side. My sons got very little sleep.

We visited Big Bend and stayed here for 3 nights. It was March, not the hottest time of the year, and the little window air conditioner did not cool the room and ran continuously. Everything was old and dust was everywhere. It was hard to tell if the bathroom was dirty or just old. I would like to visit Big... More

Stayed in room 23 Labor day weekend. There is a wing of rooms attached to the main office and a second wing at the rear of the property, with some private residences between. I was in the back wing. The parking lot is unpaved. The room was small with two chairs but no room for a table. It had some... More
