We found the room very dark and "dingy" feeling, with a strong odor of kerosene. We would have relocated, but rooms were scarce in that area, so we felt stuck. And the recommendation for a restaurant had to be the worst one for miles around.....very dirty, poor service, poor quality of food. Next morning we were happy to find breakfast... More

Friendly and welcoming this is basic but acceptable comfortable lodging within easy reach of Big Bend. Do not expect new nor fancy. Expect clean and basic lodging with working TV and AC. It really added color to our stay and while it might not be everyone cup of tea we liked this place.

There is absolutely not ONE surprise about this place! They are extremely honest in their advertising - and I won't ever stay anywhere else when I visit Big Bend! The motel is a simple, clean, basic hotel, however, they have thrown in little touches like bath products, extra towels for you to use to clean off the desert dust! The... More

Lodging in or near Big Bend National Park is hard to come by. No rooms were available in the Park or at two other motels in Study Butte, but this little no frills motel was a pleasant surprise. I stayed three nights. It was inexpensive ($78.54), clean, and an ideal base for my explorations in Big Bend. The staff was... More

Stayed 4 nights in one of the cabins. Very clean and comfortable. No complaints whatsoever. Convenient to stores, restaurants, and parks. Couldn't have asked for better. Would defiantly recommend this motel. Thanks Chisos Mining Company for a wonderful stay!

It is extremely easy to find. It is very quiet. The front desk staff is wonderful. The beds are comfy and clean. There is lots and lots of piping hot water. The bathroom is clean. The price is good for this area. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Made reservations for three nights and wanted to change it to two nights... Arriving one night later. They wouldn't change the reservation. Not sure why. So I cancelled... The reception at this place is very rude and unfriendly.

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
