We never could figure out why people said they used the Gage Hotel in Marathon (an hour away) as a base for exploring Big Bend when the Chisos Mountain Lodge is right there in the park. After staying at Chisos, we understand. Of course, the location is fabulous with outstanding views all around and trailheads out the front door. The...

Quiet - no phone or TV in the Casa Grande lodge and the only internet access is at the lodge. Food is excellent - however a little pricy. If you go, take some snacks to save some money to buy some goodies to bring home. Beautiful land, clean rooms.

We stayed 3 nights. Wish it had been 10! Rooms were clean and simple. We didn't stay in them much because of all the hiking tails. Be prepared for trails to be a bit harder than marked (we are in our 50s and hikers). We brought in our own microwave food, but a cafe is in site. Start calling for...

Wonderful, as always. Great for hikes, spectacular views. Restaurant offers excellent food for hungry hikers. Not flip-flop friendly! Seems like at every visit we see families in foolish footwear on one of the roughest trails.

Stayed here for five days. Upon arrival after an all day air travel disaster we walked in to find the sink with makeup on it. Checked out the bathroom and it was disgusting. Bed lines didn't look like they had been changed. Too late and too tired to do much so we slept in our clothes on top of the...

Conveniently located in Center of Park. Offers easy access to multiple trails. Facility is dated and run down but better than camping. Has small general store and national Park service. Building A has a best views.

It is very hard to reserve. Hence, we only had one night there. The room is decent, like a neat standard motel. The view outside is spectacular. Restaurant has nice food and wine. If you plan on sunrise or sunset photography, this is the place to be. Staff are friendly. Overall, a very satisfying experience

Dear Kevin F, Thank you for taking time to tell us about your stay! I couldn't agree more, the views in the basin are stunning. We never get tired of our sunsets. The Lodge is a very popular place for photographers, as you have pointed out. Our staff will appreciate your compliments on their friendliness. We are so glad you...

Stayed in the cottages with my family for a couple nights while visiting Big Bend National Park. Cottage was very well equipped with nice and confortable beds and a large bathroom. a large terrasse in front was perfect to get a couple drinks and enjoy the view. Place is really quiet and inside nature. Strongly recommend it

The rooms are very clean and accommodating, although on the small side. There are no tv's although they are available for rent at very reasonable rates. If you're spending a lot of time touring the park, you won't even miss it. Very similar to other National Park lodging accommodations, not like hotel chains at all. Must book well in advance,...

Not impressed with the accommodations. No soundproofing between rooms. We had to wear earplugs so we wouldn't hear the dude next door snoring. Very limited cell and internet service. My hubs had to make a call using the pay phone. No lobby or indoor open seating area. This was especially inconvenient when the weather changed and we couldn't be outside....

Dear Atascosachick, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience here! I am very sorry to hear about the noise complaint. The Lodge is a part of the Park's history, some of the buildings even built by the CCC! This was, of course, before sound-proof walls. However, we want all our guests to enjoy a comfortable...
