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.

Quite the quirky Texan experience on our Route 66 road trip. The rooms are decorated in the old western style, down to the swinging saloon doors into the bathroom. Beds comfortable and the air-conditioning good. The breakfast available next door was superb. Also a texan shaped, if not texan sized pool is worth quick dip even if just to say...

The hotel was everything I wanted as I drive Route 66. Very pet friendly- they even have a doggie corral. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The room was fabulous! Throw back to the 1960. The room was clean, good wifi. Don't miss having dinner at the adjacent restaurant. Highly recommend!

We stayed at the Big Texan Motel for two nights as part of our Route 66 adventure. What a quirky place! The motel is really easy to find, just off the I-40 Frontage Road. The car park was pretty full when we arrived, clearly a very popular spot. The staff at check-in were very helpful and we stayed in the...
