Awesome atmosphere! I and 44 others stopped in here on a tour a week ago and was so pleasantly suprised by the dinner, drink specials, steak challenge and dance instructions we were greeted with! Great little pool, lovely staff who where keen to get in on our flip cup games held in the back room! An overall pleasant stay, just...

We were looking forward to our stay at the Big Texan, having chosen it as part of our Route 66 honeymoon. When we drove up, we thought great - it's so kitschy and we'll get some great photos. When we went to check in, the lady who served us was devoid of any politeness. She was more interested in talking...

This was part of our trip, and made reservations in advance. Beds were comfortable, but not enough electrical plugs. Small room, typical motel, but kids screaming late night, and difficult to find where it was coming from. Could have been the back part of the restaurant, but it was after 2300. There were also a lot of flies in the...

Well-priced, clean hotel right next to the Big Texan Steak Ranch. Decorated-up Texas style and would be a great stop with kids. Convenient location on the way back home from Colorado. We stayed with two dogs in a dog friendly room. Sure, it's a little tacky, but they're going for a certain theme. It is priced right and by no...

We stayed here for one night while travelling Route 66. The rooms were fabulous. We had a room in the block behind the pool with two double beds sharing with two small children. There was plenty of room and the kids loved the themed rooms and cattle bed spreads. My only issue with the room was the shower, perfect for...

I made my reservation several months in advance and requested a ground floor room. And as usual, they honored my request. It is always a pleasure to return to this amalgam of fun, food and entertainment. It is Texas at its tacky best. The rooms are large, decorated in the true Texan style, immaculate and fun. Where else are you...

Align your expectations with the kitsch factor- this place is not luxurious, but it is a great spot to lay your head after gobbling down a steak across the parking lot. The rooms are clean but this is a motel, so you may sleep best if you have brought your own pillow. Great that it is pet friendly and super...

All kind of various types of steaks cooked (prepared) to perfection. A fantastic selection of drinks. Only one thing to say. "don't miss out this place if you are in the...

I am writing this review in my room. There is an odor emanating from the bathroom area that I cannot pin on any family member. It reminds me of a male cat spraying an alley wall. Speaking of....we saw 6 cats roaming the parking lot....some attempting to procreate in front of us. The tv has a short in it, we...

Stayed at this hotel as part of a Contiki tour. Once we entered the rooms my roomate and I were shocked at the way they were designed. They looked fantastic and we found ourselves roaming through our other tour buddies rooms just to see what they all looked like. The Big Texan was quiet and comfortable. The rooms were of...
