We were on our way to Big Bend National Park and drove as far as we could. We stayed one night at the Outback Oasis Motel. It is an old fashioned Motel that is showing it's age. I felt the room was dated but clean. The rate was $45.00 per night and we were thankful for a place to rest....

This is a very average motel but it'll do for a night. It's old and the age shows. The rooms are small and still feel much as they did decades ago. The bed was okay, the pillows flat, and the TV didn't work all that well. The wall unit air conditioner ran all night and never really cooled the room....

Reading the other reviews I do not reconise this nasty place called outback oasis in Sanders Texts. This is one of the worst example of a Bo,teque anything. First impression the place is clean, and well presented twee bed covering removing the use of 2 of the pillows as they are not pratical with all those pockets to look like...

Spent two days at this hotel. Roy and Ruth are great. Very spacious rooms and a great cenote for reading/birdwatching. It is also very conveniently located for access to Big Bend. I highly recommend it!

Roy and Ruth Engeldorf run a really nice motel that was a very welcome retreat when I hit heavy rain and high side winds on my way to Del Rio. Conditions were too dangerous to continue so a very kind lady at the local gas station at the east end of town suggested I try the Outback Oasis. I had...

In most of the small towns along hiway 90, motels (no hotels), are pretty iffy. We lucked out Big Time. The rooms are super clean and comfortable and the grounds are lovely. I had called the front desk because I couldn't find the WiFi code (ignorance on my part). Ruth's husband Roy answered and said he would find out but...

Was just perfect very nice people that ran it.....we will be back. A lot to see and another reason to go back because we did not get to see everything we wanted to. The weather was also perfect. A very relaxing time and can hardly wait to go back.

This is a hard review for me to write. We have been on the road for 2 months now, traveling across country. I have wanted to review the places that we have stayed because I thought I would never get another unique opportunity like this again and people, like myself, read reviews before staying at places (or we try to...

We were never told of any issues with this guest until they checked out. We do provide refunds if guests have to leave early. The owner and housekeeping...

Great little place - very unique! We had a large group stopping in for one night - the weather was threatening hail and the owner offered up the little single car parking cubbyholes and we were able to put in about 4 bikes in each one. I'm being picky, but wish they had a blowdryer in the room. The owners...
