We made a reservation for a king room, but upon arrival was informed there was no hot water in that building and we were given a queen room in the back building. The room was awful. First of all, the wifi does not work in the back building. The room had numerous issues! Basically they are trying (unsuccessfully) to take...

I have to say that for the price, I really was surprisingly impressed with the size of the room. The room (in the part that accepts dogs) was clean, quiet, far away from the highway, and themed perfectly well! We really enjoyed staying at the Big Texan Motel rather than a chain that accepts dogs. We had dinner in the...

We enjoy staying at the motel because of its western theme and charm. It is dates as to accessories - the suede bed coverings are stained and need repair and the pillows are flat and uncomfortable. The swinging doors need to be lubricated. With just a bit of attention this property could be much nicer.

It was a very neat building we were in. The back was for smoking and pets, but I thought" oh no: way in the back....but it was actually the best. away from the busy front. Loved it and found out we could go anywhere around town for free...yes, the Limosine service is free!! I will stay again. I do not...

OK - I stayed here for a night because I was driving thru and wanted to way at the restaurant. What can I say? It's kitschy. Do it once. Staff is nice rooms are basic cinder block dorm types with western flare. Meh. Fun but just once. Unless you have your horse. Then mos defense stay here. Room appears clean....

My husband and I booked this hotel for a stay during our Route 66 tour. It looks like an old western town and the rooms are decorated in the same theme. Our room had 2 queen beds, coffee-maker, and a huge tv. One of the best reasons to stay is to eat at the restaurant which has great food and...

My husband and I spent a night at the Big Texan Motel on a cross country Route 66 Adventure. In all honesty I thought that it was going to be tacky beyond repair and was staying for the novelty, but left totally impressed with their quality and service. Holly in check in was delightful and we got a good rundown...

Glad that we stayed here for one night, it was so much fun! We'd stay again. The hotel has an old west campy cowboy theme. From the wood shutters on the windows that were totally old western fun to the swinging bar doors to the bathroom sink area. There was a pool shaped like Texas too. Like I said I...

This review is based upon the Big Texan Motel, not the restaurant, which has it's own review(s). Located along side I-40, this motel is a "blast from the past", a roadside motel with a cowboy theme! On a weeknite stay in September, we stayed here for one nite, and found everything to be fun & above average. The check in...
