Clean, acceptable, extremely knowledgable staff regarding the area. To get to Big Bend National Park, you have to really go out of your way because this is an isolated location. This motel is very good: the best in Terlingua. Stop here for the night. Have a fabulous dinner at the Starlight Theatre. Gas up and get an early start to... More

I had no idea what to expect when my in-laws invited us to spend New Year's with them at the Candellila House, a part of the Big Bend Holiday Hotel. It was such a treat! Terlingua is like no place I've ever been. The views are breathtaking. I had never been to the desert of the mountains in Texas prior... More

My husband and I booked this hotel for one night and stayed in "Uh Clem's Room" As we walked into our room we were amazed. The room was just gorgeous and cozy. The decor was nice and the bed super comfortable. We stayed here for a good night's rest after a three day river tour with Big Bend River Tours... More

My husband, daughter, and granddaughter stayed at the Candelilla House during a camping trip to Big Bend. The views from the front porch are beautiful. The stars at night are brighter and closer than anything you can see in the rest of Texas. No phone, no TV, bring a book. Just a short stagger to the front porch of the... More

We hadn't realized that there was a "regular" Terlingua and then the "ghost town" Terlingua. As we were looking for our hotel, BIG BEND HOLIDAY HOTEL, stopped and ask a lady at the post office where we needed to go? "Which Terlinqua?" she asked. "The one with the Big Bend Holiday Hotel," we answered. "Oh, the ghost town, good." and... More

Recently stayed at the Black Bear Suite, nice room, but no ice machine anywhere on premise. Also, be sure you do not check out of this hotel before hotel mgmt checks your room to confirm no one was smoking in it? No one in our party smoked inside the room while we were there, but hotel is trying to charge... More

This was our second stay at The Holiday Hotel. Stayed in the La Patron Suite. Roomy with a sitting area that includes a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Close to area restaurants. Room was clean but always has a layer of dust due to the environment.

Our room - the Cinnabar suite - was absolutely gorgeous. The bed, the decor, the details, the bathroom, the tiles, the sink, the veranda, the view!!! I would have loved to stay longer. The sunset, the strange locals and their hula hoops, the great food in the restaurant next door, the ghost town feel, the cemetery.... Terlingua is an amazing... More

We (me, hubs, two teenage sons plus one extra teenage boy, and our nine year old son) stayed at the Perry Mansion for a few glorious days during Spring Break. It was, by far, the most awesome and unique place we've ever stayed and we cannot wait to go back. In fact, we've already booked it for this coming Thanksgiving.... More

I'm not sure how this place is listed as a B&B. It certainly has Beds as in a regular hotel, but there didn't seem to be any breakfast... unless we had brought our own. OK - we had the Uh Clem room #5. There's a story to this room that's too long to tell, but ask the clerk at the... More
