The Big Texan was not what I expected. I didn't read any reviews or look at any pictures before we booked our room, and maybe that's the best way to do it. We drove into the parking lot and our jaws dropped. It was just so Texas. The motel room fronts were decorated as an old western town. We stayed...

I stayed here in 2001, and really looked forward to coming back. It was somewhat anticlimactic. The front desk staff were friendly. They are not capable of making reservations on line, which is odd in this century. I stayed in the back building. The room was clean enough for me, but my wife would not like it if she had...

We stayed just overnight. Our room was very fairly priced and the staff at the front desk was very personable. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. We stayed in the Alamo building and the room we were in was older. The place is fun for picture taking. I rate this place as average just...

The outside is themed like an old western town street and the rooms follow this quirky theme. I was especially amused by the saloon doors to the bathroom. The room was clean and well equipped with toiletries, the bed was comfortable but the room was dull. I was on the ground floor and couldnt have the shutters open to get...

Stayed: December 2012. 2 double beds. Sink is separate to shower & toilet. Pros: - Big Texan Steak Ranch is next door for those wanting to attempt the eating challenge, or just have a meal. - Shampoo/conditioner 2-in-1 provided. - Quirky decor, very fun environment. Cons: - No in room safe.

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!

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...
