The best place to stay when visiting Big Bend(especially during the summer). We were looking to camp but made these reservations at the lodge. Awesome view of the "Window". Fantastic view from our balcony of the rain, lightning, sunsets and stars. Wildlife everywhere - as a former park ranger it was neat to see the various wildlife. Pros - great... More

If you are visiting Big Bend - stay in the park! Otherwise you are in for some long drives. We were only able to get one night in the Chisos Mountain Lodge Motel. Based on photos, I was expecting the standard, dated, well-worn dingy motel room. I was wrong! The rooms were pleasantly updated and clean. I daresay they were... More

We stayed in a duplex/cottage, the beds were terrible and the toilet was so close to the shower stall, they were practically one! That being said, the staff was great, the views were amazing and we loved staying inside the park. I think I will try a different type of room during my next stay!

If you are in West Texas only to see Big Bend - this makes a good place to rest/sleep/shower. Personally, if I go back - I'd stay in Marfa, Alpine, or Marathon and put up with the drive. The rooms are basic at best. They do have fantastic views of the mountains and I even caught glimpse of a bear... More

Chisos Mountain Lodge is nestled next to the Chisos Mountains offering its guests a beautiful view of the Mountains. The lodge consists of several "in line" motel units, all of which are in easy walking distance from the lodges restaurant, gift shops, and camp store. The rooms are very clean but small, ours with two double beds and a small... More

Our stay at the Chisos Lodge was really awesome! The rustic western setting and non-luxurious ambiance was exactly as advertised. Very comfortable, quiet, and restful. Internet connection with Verizon was weak and slow. Meals in the lodge dining room were very good, with nice selections. The staff were friendly and helpful. The higher elevation at the lodge made for much... More

This is a rustic lodge set in the Chisos Mountains Big Bend National Park in Texas. The mountains soar to nearly 8,000 feet and you wonder if you really are in Texas. We stayed in the Casa Grande section of the lodge in an air conditioned room with two double beds and a view of Window Rock. The room is... More

The rooms are not the fanciest, but the location can't be beat. We enjoyed waking up to the spectacular view. I think it's the best location for enjoying the amazing Big Bend National Park! Another lovely feature is the view from the terrace at the restaurant. A great place to wind-down after a day of exploring.

The main reason you stay here is for the location. I'm glad we did because it would have been a bit of a drive to get into the park, which in itself is a bit of a drive/hike to explore. Yes, for what you actually get, it is pricey, but you have to make the choice because it's not guaranteed... More

Chisos Mountain Lodge has so much potential, but is in desperate need of massive renovation. The accomodations are spartan, like old roadside motel rooms. The lodge itself is extremely dated with shabby decor no newer than the early 1970s, but probably older than that. The restaurant has an institutional ambiance to it, and the food is bland and institutional Sysco... More
