Had the most refreshing, relaxing, rejuvenating, revitalizing.....re-everything vacation in Terlingua the end of May. I had the Uh Clem room and it was so very comfortable. I LOVED the big grotto-ish shower. The bed was perfectly comfortable but with all of that scenery outside I could hardly sleep. This was my third visit to the area in 5 years and... More

Stayed at the rock house and perry mansion. Loved both. Rock house is my favorite of the two but enjoyed both. Although it says on the website that the perry mansion doesn't have a kitchen, it actually has a decent one, as well as grills, and more furniture than shown in pictures. I recommend bringing food to cook because the... More

Don't be misled. I wonder about some positive reviews. I realize there was a deliberate ghost town theme to this hotel but they must be laughing all the way to bank. We stayed at Perry Mansion. The rate was $250/nite. You check in at souvenir shop . This means you are handed an envelope with key and a penciled diagram.... More

This is off the beaten path, to say the least. We were headed to Big Bend National Park from Presidio, west of the part, and Terlingua was the perfect spot for an overnight before we entered the park. We had the Big Bear suite in the Big Bend Holiday Hotel -- two bedrooms, one bath. Well stocked bathroom, very comfortable... More

Had the pleasure of staying in the Cinnabar Suite and the Candelilla House while on this brief trip to Terllingua. As it was last minute, we had to split our time between cabins. We found each delightful in its own way. The Cinnabar Suite is located right behind the Starlight Theatre, and therefore, you are right in the heart of... More

We had a great stay here, this place definitely epitomises never judge a book by it's cover. The drive through the ghost town, may out you off at first, but given it's history and location it just adds to the charm of the hotel. The room had all the amenities we could have asked for. A great porch to sit... More

This place was the bombdigity. We loved it. So cool, quaint, romantic and great hidden treat. The decor was unique the the bed soooo comfortable. This is a must stay if you are in terlingua. The proximity to town hot spots is perfect. Leave the car and walk. It was quiet and the porch is cool. AC worked well, shower... More

We were in the La Patron room and it was perfect with a sitting room that had sofa and table. It was very quiet and we loved the location. To us, it was better than the lodge in big bend. The wifi was superb, they provided water bottles and juices and snacks! How nice is that? The only reasons I... More

We were here for two night's in March 2015. We had the Cinnabar Suite - didn't need both rooms, but it was Spring Break and this was the only room available when we booked. Look at the pictures on the website and you know what you're getting. It was a lovely place to relax. We were well looked after. Note:... More
