So I messed up our reservation for a cabin at Palo Duro state park. We like you stay with somewhere with more personality than a chain hotel. This hotel is next to the Big Texas steak house. I'm not sure what year it was built but it's retro. It was clean but dated. The exterior looks like an old west...

This is a good place to stay for one night while hitting the big texan steak ranch and nearby Cadillac Ranch. The front desk was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and was as advertised. I feel like the novelty could wear off very quickly if you stayed there for more than one night. Road noise from i-40 picked...

This hotel was pre booked for us whilst travelling across America so we didn't have much choice. What can I say it is a worn out cliqued/pseudo cowboy themed hotel/motel, the rooms are well past there sell by date. The fixtures and fittings are basic and past it, you have to be careful that you don't get splinters from the...

Wow. We just didnt expect the hotel to look or be as good as it was. Fantastic how it is literally like being back in the cowboy era! Staying here is a must and the food next door my god, it was sensational!!

Of all the places we stayed on our AZ, NM and TX three week roadtrip, this was the most disappointing. The motel barely had any cars in the lot, yet we were put in the furthest room away from the main reception, where the wifi is. We asked to be moved closer so we could access the wifi, and were...

We stayed a night at the Big Texan Motel whilst travelling route 66. A quirky place decorated in old western style. Beds were comfy, place was clean. Texan shaped swimming pool, but it was a bit chilly!! Good air con in the rooms. Wi-fi was rubbish though and pretty non-existent. Worth a stay at though, especially if you are travelling...

I make sure I take anyone who visits out to here. The food is okay, not great. A lot of fried food. But they have a micro Brewery and that can be fun. Stuff for kids and a gift shop. Make sure you go out back. There are things to look at and do.

We stay here regularly after eating at the big Texan. The rooms are nice and comfy. But we where sleeping and all of a sudden our phone rung and on the other line someone was making sexual gestures. Called front desk this gentleman had called all rooms. The front desk clerk told me she had no idea what or how...

This was a fun place to stay. I had a good sleep and of course there was plenty of food and drink right next door. It's a great place to stay one night as you come through town, but I would not want more than one night, especially after meeting a guy at the bar who said he was paying...
