If you're going to stay anywhere in or near Big Bend National Park, this is the place to be. The rooms are old and not very luxurious, but they're clean and I slept like a baby. And you can't beat the location! Right in the middle of the park and a great place to navigate the entire park in a... More

I LOVED this place. The Chisos Mountain Basin could be the perfect location for a School of Wizardry!!! I know the rooms are not exactly "luxury", but I was there for nature and the surroundings and they could not be matched. And the rooms were nice and they had a microwave and a coffee pot and so I was set.... More

The lodge has several types of cabins - with air-condition, with-out, with balcony and etc. The price is very similar - about $140-150 (October 2014). My room was not large and equipped with rustic furniture. One annoying point - unstable Wi-Fi in the room worked 5 min after 5 min. However it worked in restaurant nearby well.

We had stayed at Chisos Basin several years ago and planned two nights there again this month. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. There is a refrigerator, coffee pot, microwave and hair dryer but NO reliable cell phone service, TV or internet. Being incommunicado seemed like a big plus when we booked but then my motorcycle broke down... More

My husband and I stayed one night in the Chisos Mountain Lodge. The drive to the lodge is a winding road, providing great views along the way. We arrived just before sunset, and only had to walk across the parking lot to catch a sunset through The Window. The room accommodations were sufficient, not luxury, what we have come to... More

We had room C01 ... with all required comfort. Some people will miss the television, the telephone that are not present in the rooms. We did too the first evening but then... More

The rooms are on the small side, no TV, cell coverage, or internet. Nice to be off the grid to enjoy the views around the lodge, and the wildlife. We got to see a small bear in the area, but the park rangers were there to make sure people didn't do anything stupid like getting too close to the bear.... More

We spent three glorious nights in cottage 104 at Chisos Mountains Lodges, and it was utterly breathtaking. OK... so the rooms are older, and the facilities not five star, but if that is what you crave, then the spectacular location would be wasted on you! The cottage has three double beds,all very comfortable, and a well equipped bathroom with good... More
