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...

Lodgings in the hub of Big Bend National Park. Unless the weather is stormy, you'll have to make reseravations pretty far out. There are several different unit types here, rooms with patios, ordinary motel units, and cabins on an overlook. The complex includes a restaurant/bar, gift shop, visitor center and general store. Multiple trailheads lead out from the central parking...

Dear Zoom_Gotti, Thank you for your review of the Lodge! We very much appreciate the time you took to describe the amenities we offer. I will pass on your compliments to our housekeeping staff! They do work very hard and will appreciate the recognition for a job well done. The Wifi is unfortunately spotty as you said, because we are...

It's the only lodging inside the park, which is great (but expensive). The views from the rooms are excellent and the night sky is breathtaking. Similar to lodges in other national parks the property is old but well maintained. Our room was clean and comfortable. Having a fridge and microwave was very helpful as we were travelling with a toddler....

The first thing I noticed were two large cobwebs in bedroom corners. How hard is it to knock those down when dusting the room? In bath, the tiles along floor had dirt and hair stuck to it. Blegh! I was disappointed for my first experience in a NPS Lodge. Upside is convenience to hiking in Chisos Mts.

I traveled to BBNP over New Years Eve 2016-2017. I stayed in the Rio Grande Lodge and it was awesome. The room was great. The views were great. The service was great. The beds were comfortable. I highly recommend this place.

This Lodge in comparison to so many of the national park lodges was a bit dated. We happened to be there when the power was out (you would think they would have a generator) so the restaurant was only serving sandwiches and beer for dinner. The food was ok, more like lunch for dinner. The view was definitely awesome and...

I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice our room was in the Rio Grande Motel section of the Chisos Lodge. No, it's not the most modern place I've ever stayed, but it had two comfortable double beds, a mini fridge, a microwave, coffee maker, shampoo and lotion. It was short walk up the hill to the restaurant. We stayed...

The only place to stay in the park. Paper thin walls. Outdated plumbing. Heating system is hazardous. We could hear conversation in the next room and every time they flushed the toilet. Old furniture and dismal blankets. REALLY cheap sheets on the bed. This place has no competition so it can charge a lot for a little. It just looks...

There isn't a better bang-for-your-buck in all of Texas than Roosevelt cottages 101, 102, 103 (100 is for VIPs, and that ain't us). They'll all tell you that 103 is the best, but we've stayed in all 3, and if you want to "hide out" with the beautiful views, I would choose 102. 103 seems to attract a crowd around...
