Every time we go through Amarillo we have to stop and eat at the Big Texan. We usually spend the night somewhere else in town, but we decided to stay at the Big Texan Motel because it's convenient to the restaurant and I always wanted to anyway. We got to our room around 3:30 p. m. One bed was not... More

Almost hard to believe, feels like in movies. If you can buy into the game, it's fun. Room decor is well far-west themed, inside and outside. Clean and well kept, wifi a bit weak in the room. Nice pool, the kids enjoyed it. Convenient companion restaurant across the parking lot.

We stayed for one night at the Big Texan motel. And for one night, it was perfect. The good: The room was clean and it was surprisingly quiet, for being right off the highway. Fun Texas decorating throughout was very touristy and "cheesy," which was exactly what I was going for with the kids. The windows had wood shutters, and... More

It is what it is a lovey little bit of history on route for Route 66 , can't complain , yes it's basic, yes it's off a highway but the staff are pleasant , the rooms are clean and wouldn't mind going back , it's a great place to stop sleep and visit the steak house next door

I have stayed here 4 times before over the past few years, always staying in the front building and the rooms were OK. But it really could use someone who cares. Check in- Desk clerk sat in chair for entire check-in, could not be bothered to stand up, never had that happen at any lodging. This time I was put... More

We stopped for 1 night there while travelling Route 66. We loved it :) Some say it's kitschy, for us it was cool to see the western style decor of the rooms, the restaurant. We liked the gift shop a lot (and I bought a cool bag in there). The bed was comfortable, the weather was hot, it was the... More

We have been there for just one night. Getting an extra bed wasnt possible, but the look of the room was very nice. If you like western movies or western style, you will definitly like it. We had the breakfast, which was includet, in the big texan steak house. I can highly recommend, go somewhere else. Not much of a... More

Let's think way back. The Route 66 days. The Big Texan is on the map as it is today. Sure, it's not the Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton. Then again, it isn't there to be so. It's an old time motor lodge dressed up in an old west motif. Lots of fun looking at the exterior. The room interiors are... More

Cost was reasonable. The hotel is "old style" Route 66 type with outside doors and an added old west decor so, it was a fun place to be. However, the pool was closed and had 2 feet of murky water in it. I was really looking forward to a dip before strolling over to the steak house. Our room was... More
