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

Full disclosure: I've disputed charges for the first time anywhere in 35 years of world travel at this place. I'm dumbfounded. The management is horrible. The place is OK to look at--nicely decorated, with thin walls (no soundproofing). There are better, kinder places to stay in Terlingua. If you notice the option to purchase "travel insurance for your stay" believe... More

We stayed here 1 night at the Uh Clem room. It looked nice on the pictures on the website and even nicer in real. We had to collect the key of the room at the store next to the hotel. The room was decorated in a natural style, really spacious and clean (okay, lots of sand outside so a bit... More

Thanks so much for making out stay enjoyable. We stayed in the Cinnebar Suite. The room is very spacious with a darling bathroom. I would call it a Boutique Hotel. This location cannot be beat. It is right behind the main building in town that houses the Starlight and Trading Post. We just loved talking to the locals that hang... More
