Big Lake was located well as we were bird watching in the area, as we wanted to be close to Mertzon the next morning. The hotel was clean, quiet, well-appointed and appeared pretty new. The room with a king bed was roomy, with a sofa and desk chair. Well-lit also. Next time I'd ask for a room away from the highway as there was some noisy truck traffic, but we did not notice it after about 10 p.m. We did not eat breakfast but it looked fine and well-stocked. Check in and out were quick.
Upon arrival I was not greeted and employee sat on her phone until I got up to the front desk... this was a common habit upon all the employees here. No one was ever standing up ready to help anyone. They hid behind the corner on their phone... During my 3 night stay I had to get 4 different keys because they kept NOT working!- and they weren’t put up against electronics to deactivate them.. I stayed in a king suite and there were stains on the sofa bed, toilet paper had barely any on it and there were poop stains on it. I went downstairs after noticing it and asked for a different roll and two more towels to fit my family of 4. Girl didn’t really acknowledge the fact the room was not clean. We also did not have a sticker that other doors did that said cleaned and sanitized for your protection.. and that was clear! Cleaning services were never offered the entire stay and they were very loud cleaning other rooms and slamming doors.. Also not happy I spent 400$ and prepaid for this hotel so it wasn’t able to be cancelled. We drove 5 hours to be with my working husband and the pool was broken and ICE cold and maintenance never showed to look at the issue. So my kids were VERY upset and I was upset with the cost and talk about being able to swim and not get to when we got there. When I asked about the pool issue the employee snapped an attitude and said idk what to tell you there’s no one I can call and idk when maintenance is coming it’s been broke for weeks. This would have played a big role in staying at this facility.…
Good hotel great place in a remote area. Friendly staff. Comfortable rooms great location next to hey and restaurants. Very nice hotel in a smaller community. Will stay again if need be. I recommend this
When in Big lake this is the only place I will stay unless they are booked full, and most of the time they are booked , so call ahead and get your room. The staff is always accommodating and friendly . the beds are comfortable and always feel at home here.
Highly recommend this hotel. It's clean and the staff is amazing. We went during Covid, so we were unable to try out the all the amenities, but the staff went out of their way to make sure we felt welcomed and safe!
