We stayed at the Candelilla House and loved it. Terlingua doesn't have much to do as it is small and feels like the middle of nowhere....but it sure has an energy about it. We fell in love with it on our first visit. The Holiday...More

This place is a highly recommended stop off, don't bother looking for anything else. This is a good mix of local tradition and creature comforts. Wifi worked well, shower was perfect (in separate outside building) and the little township less then a minute walk away...More

We were planning only a couple days in Big Bend and found Terlingua as a close town to the park. Our 2 days stayed turned into 5 as we found a lot to do in the park. Our first night was in Uh Clem's, second...More

You need to be in the proper frame of mind to visit Terlingua -- it's not Marfa or Alpine or any of those fancy places. We stayed in the Casa Buena Vista for 5 nights and were mostly delighted the first four nights when the...More

Description
The Holiday Hotel is no franchise resort. It's perfect for raucous revelry or a romantic rendezvous, or both...You'll find many things in the Ghost Town in the exact condition they've been in for centuries, and ...More that's great for exploring, but at the end of the day you'll want air conditioning.Named for the reddish mercury ore that fueled the industry that was the Chisos Mine, this room belies the Ghost Town location and offers a rustic yet elegant experience.The fancy indoor bathroom that we're so proud of is -- ahem... -- a short walk down the scenic porch, marked Room # 1B. It's a Terlingua tradition that has caught on big in Europe. erlingua chic, the Candililla House is great for either couples or families. Perched on a hillside, it offers an everchanging view of sunsets, starlight, and thunderstorms. There is a patio outside the walls and another within.The El Patron Suite is suitable for business meetings, but they're frowned on around the Ghost Town. Instead, have a few amigos/amigas join you for a festive evening. Walk over to the famous Terlingua Cemetery to greet the ghosts, or just watch the sunset with everyone on the porch over at the Trading Post. Bring your guitar (but not the accordion.)The Candelilla House gets its name from the local cactus that was gathered by the locals and used in the manufacture of women's makeup products. The owners' family operated both a trading post and a processing facillity that kept this Mexican tradition alive.Just down the road a piece from the end of the earth is the Rio Grande Rock House. This is not some neo-cowboy fantasy replica. It's real by-God Texas history. Built in the early 19th century as a trading post for trappers and settlers from both sides of the border, it's still in the same family.We're proud to be out on the fringe of Texas. Come on down.Free Parking - Wireless Adjacent* - Indoor Plumbing**If you stand out on the porch and hold your laptop up real high, you may get a signal.*The indoor plumbing is not necessarily "in your room."

Not sure which room you are referring to, but each suite has a private bathroom. Some suites are two bedroom, but there's still only one bathroom in each suite. Hope this helps.
