If you are looking for an example of a Texas town of yesterday come on down to Archer City. While other Texas towns are reviving with redevelopment, the obligatory micro-brewery, and all the smatterings of atypical Texas that come with growth - Archer City is an example of what a Texas town was. What a Texas town is supposed to be. A example of a collection of people and places that generations grew up around, a small town, friendly, proud but not pompous - and, I believe it has the right to be, this place is a full of intellectual and Pop Culture. When you come stay at the Spur Hotel, experience Texas as it was not too long ago.
Very well kept up old hotel- Room was very clean and spacious- Air Conditioning was Excellent- Staff communication by text was great- A really neat experience overall- would highly recommend- Self service was a real treat- parking right out front- nearby food was very good
The Spur is a gem! Johnny and Dottie live at the hotel and have done a great job of making this historic hotel shine. It’s like staying with old friends. Plan a weekend, eat at Murn’s, and shop at Larry McMurtry’s world-class bookstore. I highly recommend this place.
Had such a wonderful stay last year that we’ve made it a family tradition! Perfect spot for a reading and writing retreat. Super friendly and gracious owners treated us like family. Quiet, eclectic Main Street with legendary bookstore for afternoon strolls. On your way into town drop by the Windhorst General Store for a BBQ sandwich and life-altering pickled Brussels sprouts. Once you’ve arrived stay at least long enough for Catfish Friday at Murn’s cafe across the street.
we enjoyed our night in the Spur. The owner was friendly and welcoming and the room was comfortable. The room was pretty basic but clean and it was more fun staying in a historic hotel rather than a chain motel. Parking is on the street right in front of the hotel, Archer City is a small town and the parking was not an issue. Dining options in town are pretty limited but our dinner was ok. The prices were ok.
