Just stayed at the Big Texan Motel in June. I pulled the fitted sheet back to reveal a nasty, soiled mattress pad cover. When they changed the sheets, there was no way they could have missed this. They chose to leave it on the bed and just put a clean sheet over it. Yuck. Shame on them! Thankfully we had 2 queen size beds. The other bed was cleaner looking.

The cleaning crew had left an envelope on the table so you could tip them. Here is my tip. Make sure your guests have clean bedding!

Also, the dead bolt on the door did not work. So I was nervous about that and did not feel totally safe and secure. They need to make sure that all deadbolts are in good working order. So I would say that room maintenance could be better.

Room Tip: Check cleanliness of bedding and check your deadbolt.

Nothing refined about the rooms here. We are talking rough cut lumber, wooden bed frames and wrought iron light fixtures. The room just barely serves the purpose but if you are looking for a comfortable bed save your money and go somewhere else. The matresses are shot. Your wake up call is around 7:00am with the delivery trucks pulling in to supply the Big Texan Restaurant which is directly across the driveway. Deisel trucks are there early with their air brakes, emergency brakes, and metal ramps slamming on the black top. Wifi gets weaker the further away your room is from the office. Breakfast at the Big Texan is so so and a bit pricey. On the positive side the motel is 300 feet away from the Big Texan restaurant which is an interesting place for dinner.

Room Tip: If you need wifi you will need to book a room close to the office

Nice place right next to their restaurant. Only complaint was there was no fridge in the room. How can you keep your beer cold? Clean rooms, great shower. Right next to the highway, so easy on and off. Reasonable rates

So I messed up our reservation for a cabin at Palo Duro state park. We like you stay with somewhere with more personality than a chain hotel. This hotel is next to the Big Texas steak house. I'm not sure what year it was built but it's retro. It was clean but dated. The exterior looks like an old west town which is fun. The doors to the bathroom area are swinging doors which was fun at first but the sound got annoying after a bit. There was a bit of an odor, I think from the carpet. It was a reasonable price too.

This is a good place to stay for one night while hitting the big texan steak ranch and nearby Cadillac Ranch. The front desk was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and was as advertised. I feel like the novelty could wear off very quickly if you stayed there for more than one night. Road noise from i-40 picked up in our room around 5am. I have heard that for the same price as a basic room here, you can get a room at the Hampton Inn 2 doors down if you prefer chain motels. I found the Big Texan to be a nice break from the norm.

Room Tip: Pick the main building
