This place is awful! Dirty, worn out, ac did not work, smells bad, something living under the floor. Sheets were worn out, the towells were worn out, the wash cloths had brown stains??? If this is the only motel available, dont go, or sleep in your car! The only way this place stays open is that it is almost the... More

In an area as remote as this, I lower my expectations. By those standards, I was satisfied. The best thing is that it's the most convenient place to stay outside of the national park and the prices are lower. The room itself was cleaner and more desirable than I had expected from the reviews. It was small but adequate, and... More

I suppose, like many people, I tend to write reviews when I am either very displeased with a location or extremely pleased. Having read reviews, I did not have high expectations for this property; but my husband and I were traveling with our pet, and this was about our only option in the area. I had prepaid for the one...

So, we were here 2 years ago and the stay was acceptable, probably mostly because we were gone all day every day. Pulling in today, dog crap on the grass at our assigned site, gopher mounds abounded, obvious treatment for fire ants, we had to schlep a picnic table from another site. Next time we will look at Lajitas.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Big Bend Resort and Adventures. The park was nice and quiet with large pull through sites. It was a good location for us, close to the National Park and back roads we like to Jeep through. However, the Resort advertised Cable and there was no cable. It also advertised WiFi but it... More

This was the only available lodging for our recent Spring Break trip to Big Bend. We would not have chosen this place had we had another choice, but we are VERY pleased with the way that it all worked out. The location is perfect- just a few miles from entrance of park. Our room was in the Mission Lodge looking... More

This was our second stay in Terlingua and was the better accommodation of the two. The room was spacious and clean (the sheets were stained, but again, clean). The walls were paper thin, but if you are just looking for a clean bed and shower it is a great launching place for Big Bend and Terlingua ghost town. Connected to... More

This is not a suburban hotel experience, it is clean, the bed is comfortable, the TV (old letter box) works on 6 channels. No hair dryer, alarm clock noisy A/C. By Terlingua standards this is the grand hotel. We enjoyed our stay in the area, the scenery is awesome, take the drive down 170.

The good news is, I got to visit Big Bend National Park, one of my favorite places in the United States. The bad news is hotels are hard to come by in this area. I have stayed at the Big Bend Resorts and Adventures hotel before several times. My experiences were ok. The rate tended to be high for what... More
