We stayed in room 117 and we were bitten by bedbugs. We told them about it but we're not offered a refund. Will not go back! The room smelled musty and mattresses needed to be replaced. Very old and sagged. The big Texan restaurant was good though

My husband and I visited Colorado Springs for our anniversary trip and decided to make a stop for the night in Amarillo. While searching for a place for dinner we ran across the Big Texan and found them to have a quaint little hotel as well. Since we were only passing through, we booked a room and we were pleasantly...

This review is strictly for those traveling with pets. We couldn’t find many hotels with vacancies in town that allowed pets. When we saw the Big Texan (known for its famous steak house) and discovered they would allow pets, we were excited to stay here. Unfortunately we never made it into a room. Upon receiving our keys, the girl at...

The Big Texan in Amarillo is well worth the experience. Themed to an old western style, the hotel is eclectic but fun! No complaints as far as accommodation was concerned. Definitely check out the Big Texan Steakhouse too!

Stayed two nights at the motel. The hot water was not working so we moved to the room next door. Sometime during the night the a/c heater of the new room stopped working so we woke to a 58 degree room. The staff was very apologetic and ensure it would be fixed by the time we returned. It could not...

I can only recommend this hotel for the EXPERIENCE alone. It is antiquated and has very thin walls. They also had computer problems and I couldn't check in fot about 2 hours. They did give me $20.00 off the already inflated rates.

The price was right so we made the leap, after all i wanted a place to stumble into after my steak at the Big Texas We were pleasantly surprised to find a cool, funky room with great Western charm. It was panelled with wood shutters and a swinging old-timey door into the bathroom. It's kind of retro and that's alright....

Disappointed in the hotel. Everything was old, worn and run down. Room was very damp/clamy and smelled moldy. Not the Western novelty scene we were expecting. Highlight was being in walking distance to The Big Texan Restaurant across the parking lot from the motel.
