Unfortunately, we had to cancel out trip in November due to a medical emergency. I thought we were canceling within the time frame allowed as shown on their main webpage. "Cancellation Policy: Important -- Chili Cook-off, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Spring Break all have a 30 day cancellation fee. For all other reservations, if you need to cancel your...

Terlinqua is an old mining town so when you drive in it is dirt roads, old mining equipment, and a few businesses. We stayed at the Holiday Hotel which in a group of about 5 rooms, specifically the Uh Clem room. From the outside it is very plain but the room was very clean, the bed comfortable, and the water...

Our family of 5 including 3 teen boys stayed in Casa Buena Vista over part of Thanksgiving break as a base for hiking in Big Bend National Park. Location was perfect for this ... it was about a 15 minute drive to the entrance to the park, and probably 45 minutes (beautiful drive in the morning with the sun rising... More

If you stay here, keep your expectations low and you will be able to be grateful for any place to stay just outside the park. The towels were clean and the room was neat, but this is not luxury; it is practicality--not a bad thing, but not up to the standard of other places that charge $100 a night.

Honestly, I'd probably give this place 3.5 out of 5 stars. The major problem I had with it was that they said there was wireless internet on their homepage, but when we got there, there wasn't. I called the hotel number from the internet page and a woman I mentioned this to said that all "issues on site had to... More

Best Place in the area to stay - The bed was very comfortable and I loved the coziness of our little Uh Clem After dark you can meet the innkeeper on her way home to her room and enjoy star gazing. We had the cutest dog show up to escort us thru the tour of ruins. We left our door... More

You probably need to be ok with a little rusticity to appreciate this home. The home is old and in need of some repairs. That being said, the home is clean and charmingly decorated with views to die for. We found it to be really well stocked, with juice, coffee, condiments and a well stocked liquor cabinet. The beds are... More

If you like rustic, but not rustic hotels this is the place to go. An old mansion that the mine company owner built. The portion you can stay in is well renovated, and it even has a kitchen. The mansion has great views of the Chisos mountains in the distance. My favorite restaurant in town, the Starlight Theater is just... More

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
