“Great Location”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The room was great with air conditioning, coffee machine, refrigerator, microwave and thankfully, no television. There was a smal convenient store by the hotel and at the reception there was a nice restaurant.

The place was quiet, we went to bed early were ready for our hike bright and early the next morning..

Room Tip: Get the second floor units, if you are on the first floor, you can hear the people walking or stampi...

We stayed for two nights in the Casa Grande rooms. The room was large, clean and the view from the balcony was amazing, especially the sunset. The only downside was the bathroom was very small, no room for two people.

Restaurant and shop was close, staff were very helpful and friendly.

This was our first time in Big Bend. We were there for 3 nights and 4 days 7/25-7/28/13. Stayed in A4 2nd story room with a great view of the Window and the trails. Got a 2 double bed room because I didn't think the wife and I (with my being 6'3" 250) would both fit on a double bed. I was correct and we slept in separate beds. I had no problem with the no tv or phone in room. Nor with the wifi being spotty at best. But my wife did. We had a neighbor that decided to smoke a cigar on the balcony next to us making us go in for one night. The walls are paper thin. Being on the grounds made travel in the park very easy. We may camp next time only because its $34 plus tax a day versus the $127 plus tax we paid per day. Store closes early. Restaurant closes at 8pm and is okay but pricey. Front desk closes at 9pm. It may sound like we didn't like it but we had a great time! We will be bring family next time!

Room Tip: The A building had the best view of the Window and trails.

We stayed one night in the lodge type room (there are also hotel type rooms and cabins). We liked the room and the nice balcony. I recommend staying on the second floor. Ground level is between first and second floor so you have stairs regardless of what level you are on so why not stay on the second floor and have a private balcony. We were in building B but recommend building A as it faces "The Window" (the gap between the mountains where the sunsets).

Room Tip: See notes above. We also scouted out the cabins for a return visit. #103 seems to have the best vi...

If you are wanting to get away from the world and just enjoy God's beautiful creations this is the place to go. Secluded high up in the mountains is this rustic place that gives you a chance to relax or hike and enjoy nature at its best. The staff at the lodge are friendly and anxious to help. The room was clean and comfortable, nothing fancy. Cannot say enough about the food in the restaurant, it was fantastic. We expected fast food sort of stuff and instead found fabulous meals at affordable prices. The country store was stocked well and friendly staff. We especially enjoyed being able to watch the sunsets and sunrises at the overlook. It seems like you are just right next to the stars and clouds. It was fantastic.

Room Tip: Be sure and stay in one of the units with air conditioning.

We've been to many national parks, and this one has been the best experience by far. The Lodge accomodations were very nice. The bed was comfortable, The room was clean, the housekeeping service was good, and even the housekeeper struck up a conversation and gave us some sightseeing tips. The restaurant on-site serves good food and the wait staff is friendly. The Lodge is located in the center of the park, making it very easy to get to all points in the park, and a number of trailheads start right behind the lodge as well, making evening walks possible. The sunsets are spectacular every night, and on a clear night one can see many stars. The area is very remote. There is no TV, no cell phones, no land line phones, but they do have wireless Internet.

As compared to other national parks, this one is not crowded, but just as interesting. Staying at the Lodge makes all of it readily accessible. It's pretty apparent to us that the entire staff here is trained to make your stay a pleasant one, and they succeeded.

We had a double down by the trailheads. It was July and cool every morning. From Chisos min we were centrally located ad went North, East and West to experience the park. We entered from I-10/Alpine and left through Marathon/US90. The views from the Basin are wonderful, and there are enough trails close by you don't really need to explore the whole park if your so inclined.

The rooms are very clean and recently renovated. The restaurant is surprisingly good with a lot of variety from steaks, to pastas, to hamburgers and salads.
