“would go back any day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

This hotel completely exceeded my expectations. It was clean, comfortable and it felt likewe were in cowboy town with saloon doors and themed linen and pictures. Flat screen tv with many channels. The pool was even amazing, in the shape of Texas!

Would definitely go back!

This was the best motel I have ever stayed at, from the friendly and helpful staff to the fun décor to the comfortable beds and pillows ! I have chronic pain and suffer from headaches every day. after a night at The Big Texan Motel, I woke up in no pain for the first time in years ! I would highly recommend staying the night here. We also ate at the Big Texan Steakhouse for a couple of our meals, the food is great and the staff there were fun and friendly as well. would go again even if I wasn't going to eat steak ! so, overall, restaurant and Motel, 5 stars ! very pleasurable experience .

Room Tip: we were on second floor, didn't have a problem with showers.

great quirky hotel- though shower was not working, had to go ask reception about it- finally got it working. room was nice. the Steak house was the highlight - worth at least one night stay- especially if you have a family-kids will love it.

The beds are wonderful. The decor is fun. The restaurant food is fabulous..if you're meat eater. I thought the room a little pricey but we had a wonderful fun experience... Most do at least once. I would skip the breakfast in the am unless you are somehow hungry after the huge meal served in the restaurant

I've written positively on this motel before and that review stands with a caveat. Best shower off i-40 IF YOU'RE ON THE FIRST FLOOR. If you're on the second floor - I can't vouch. Stayed there for one night on the second floor and water temp was all over the place. No kidding - went from scalding to chilled numerous times in a ten minute shower. And I mean numerous times. If you're going to stay there, and it's great for kids, make sure you're on the first floor or that they have fixed the water temp issues on the second.

We stayed here on our authentic Route 66 trip. This hotel was cute from the moment we pulled into the drive. Our room was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. We had dinner at the steak house and were also pleased. The gift shop was great for our knick knacks and souvenirs. We would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here with the girlfriend in September. It was our first time ever in Texas, so the old ranch style hotel was pretty cool for us. The room was pretty small, but it was clean. The pool in the shape of Texas was awesome too.

The restaurant is next door was amazing! We really liked this place!
