We just returned from a four-night stay at the Chisos Mining Company Motel. There were four of us on the trip, so we booked one of their large cabins, which worked perfectly. The cabin, though basic, was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Each of us had our own bed (2 doubles, 2 twins). The heater/air-conditioning unit worked great and we were... More

The rates are great here! I don't think you can do better in terlingua. I've stayed in the single rooms, the doubles and a few of the cabins and they are all fine. It's quiet, it's safe, it's close to Big Bend, and they are really nice at check in. These are no frills rooms so if you are looking... More

My Grandson, two Sons and I made our annual trip to Big Bend and this year we stayed here. We usually stay in my motor home over at the Lajitas Maverick RV Park, but this year we wanted to go up to Fort Davis/McDonalds Observatory as well. I have passed by the Easter Egg Valley Motel (aka Chisos Mining Company... More

The motel room was comfy. It fit our purpose, resting and cleaning up, after our hiking. The staff were super courteous. Beds were great. I do wish there was a microwave and frig but they had available a grill outside and that was even better. We were able to book by email. All my questions were answered promptly before we... More

I enjoyed staying here. The room was really simple with no television or telephone, but that suited me fine. I stayed in a room well off the main road, in the second part of the motel. It was so far back from the office (and the main road) that the free wifi didn't reach the room, so in the evening... More

Our room was the cheapest in Terlingua at $60. It was a small, but clean room. Dark. I wish the bathroom light was brighter, and the thick shower curtain didn't help the matter. Great hot water pressure. Love the proximity to Big Bend. Bunnies running everywhere on property, make sure you don't run over them. Wifi signal was weak all... More

We stayed 4 nights in the jewel colored cabins on site. They are quaint & comfortable, quiet and very clean. The cabin that we had was super large with a full kitchen and all of the kitchen items that you could want. It was very handy for preparing lunches to use in Big Bend. The location was great for being... More

Rented the two bedroom cottage for four nights in April. Although clean, it was falling apart. Thought i would go through the floor of the tub every time I took a shower. Lights did not work, and it was not for lack of light bulbs. The "outdoor space" was metal folding chairs on dirt. The only redeeming factor was location... More

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.
