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

Well, long story short, this place is pretty rough. We stayed in one of the duplexes, and seriously- it was grimy. I hesitated to sit on the couch because it looked like it hasn't been thoroughly cleaned since 1984. Or ever, for that matter. The whole place needed to be deep cleaned, and a lot of the 'amenities' were in... More

I had to admit it was not as worse as I thought it would be. Since I had read so many bad reviews in this site, in order to sleep comfortably, we brought our own sheets, pillows and comforters. We were glad that we did. You don't really need to if you are not very particular about it. We normally... More

We stayed in the Mission Lodge section of this hotel. It is across the street from the main facility. As many of the reviews have indicated, it's a bit tired and worn. They are also pretty stingy with toiletries as we only had one bar of soap. The location is good. Otherwise, if you're really expecting a "resort" you'll be... More

Terlingua (along with Study Butte and Terlingua Ghost Town) is a tiny town with a population of about 1000 people. It just about 3 miles outside the Big Bend National Park which itself is not a popular park. Some of the other parks in the country get more than 30 times more visitors in a year. There are few (if... More
