The most expensive motel of the trip. Bitten by bed bugs. A dark room. No WiFi. Noisy because of road. Woken by house-keeping pushing their trolleys past the door early in the morning. Wife received a call in the room from someone masturbating (told reception who was disinterested to the point of not even looking up fro what she was... More

The staff was very nice and helpful. The motel is just of the I-40 so there might be some noise from traffic, especially in the rooms closest to the road. The Texas theme in the room makes it something else. We heard the water running in the shower and toilet from the room next door, but no noise carried other... More

My friend and I had a room close to the horse area. We stayed here in April for one night. We found bugs on us and in the beds in the morning. I notified the staff immediately. Called the health Dept. and reported (don't know what/if anything they did). The staff was extremely apologetic. But, come to find out this... More

A great stop off as part of Route 66. Not the best hotel I've ever stayed in but a more exciting option than a standard best western for night for novelty factor alone. Rooms could be cleaner and a net curtain to let light in but give some privacy would be helpful as otherwise a very dark room.

We called ahead for reservations and check in was quick and easy. Sunny was our clerk and she was great! There with another couple and asked for connecting rooms which was no problem what so ever! The room was decorated in the old Western style which we loved! The room was clean, the air worked good and the bathroom was... More

The service was top-notch while being very reasonable in price. The room decor was total Texan and well done. Conveniently located by the Interstate 40 and the Big Texan Ranch restaurant. We would stay here again!

We always stay at the Big Texan when Amarillo. Nice staff, comfortable rooms for a great Price. Additionally, great parking in back for our truck and motorcycle trailer for the week we are gone. You can also walk next door toothed Big Texan Bar and Restaurant!

As a disabled traveler I sometimes have a few extra hurdles to over come. But this place beats every thing I have ever experienced. A down stairs room had been requested but when I arrived I had the choice of an upstairs room or a room well away from the main motel which is reserved for pet owners. They did... More

Super-cute online. Reality was a room covered with urine spots from where other thoughtless travelers had allowed their dogs to pee on the carpet. Here's an idea management-in dog-friendly rooms, take out the soiled carpet and install linoleum or tile so it can ACTUALLY be cleaned. Very gross having to walk on pee after getting out of the shower. Speaking... More
