Yes, it is a basic, clean room...that's what you get in a national park. You are in the middle of beautiful scenery and great hiking. It is this nice, clean room with a shower or camping. I'll take this any day over a tent. Enjoyed every minute of it. Nice restaurant and convenience store there too.

The room was comfortable, and the furniture was somewhat distinct from the usual "motel standard." True, no TV (though you could rent one) or cell service, but that was actually a plus. The only drawback was that we were on the ground floor of a two-story accommodation; the upstairs guest was up at 6:00 every morning, tromping back and forth... More

I debated whether or not to rate this a 3 or a 4. The setting is magnificent. The lodging just adequate. Luckily, it was very clean--yes, we could smell the bleach. I don't know if it had cell phone service--maybe for certain carriers. The wifi was spotty, but kind of worked. Even though we lucked out and had a main... More

There are not a lot of accomodation options in this part of Texas - fortunately the Chisos Mountain Lodge fills this void quite well. It is certainly not the best property that I have ever stayed at, but it is clean and safe. The restaurant has good food and service. There are no phones or TV's in the room --... More

This is the only hotel in the park. The rooms are ok, the restaurant is ok, the location is unique. Walk around, see the sunset, and accept that the room is just a place to sleep. It is one of the few hotels that I have been in recently without a TV, but as I said, that is not what... More

Location, location, location! Stayed 3 nights. There's nothing better or more central if you aren't camping or RV'ing through Big Bend NP. The rooms are not fancy, but they are clean and functional (except for the painfully low shower head... remember to duck!) Microwave, fridge and coffeemaker in room. Great views and bird/wildlife viewing! Friendly and fast restaurant (a full... More

For 3 nights we were fortunate to have a second floor room in Building A. There are 6 rooms on this floor and they have far and away the best view of the window. If you can snag one of these rooms, do so. To wake up every morning and see the mountains/window while still lying in bed was wonderful.... More

The rooms are kind of dated and crappy. But clean, and the folks are very nice. They look like they were last remodeled in the 80s. Back when it was OK for the shower head to be at chest height, and toilet paper wasn't soft. Beds not particularly comfortable. Be prepared, the wifi is spotty at best. We were there... More

We recently spent three enjoyable nights at the Lodge. The rooms are plain, no frills similar to low end chain hotel. Each has a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and NO television or phone. But that is why you come to Big Bend National Park, to get away from the city and commune with nature. And you get that in... More
