We traveled the Route 66 and spend one night in Amarillo. The Big Texan Motel is a very nice place to stay. The hotel looks good and has a special western style. The rooms are also equipped with wood and western style furniture. You feels like you are in a western movie. :-) Opposite the motel is the Steak Ranch....

Stayed here one night fun rooms with Texan decor, nice pool and fun restaurant. Texas rose wallpaper in bathroom! What a hoot! A bit pricey for the amenities but well worth the stay for a taste of the old west!

Not what you would expect. Crazy western decor in an older property. Good space to exercise your pooches and even a horse hotel. Be sure and check out the Texas shaped pool. Staff fun and friendly. Rooms clean and update for it age, a fun step back into the Route 66 days.

We stayed here on our route 66 road trip. It's a pretty cool place. The room we had was fairly clean and decent size. I wasn't too fond of the bathroom lighting. The bath tub was dark once you pulled the curtains. Staff was friendly, the restaurant was good, the breakfast buffet was decent but way overpriced. Overall, Great experience,...

Nice Motel you get exactly what you see this was one of our stops on Route 66 in 08 and we got the sleep that we badly needed for the driving and after the Steaks in the nearby Steak House as other reviewers said you get what it looks like and it dose the job for a night or two.

If you're looking for a 4-5 star hotel you're not going to find it here. It's an old hotel that was new more than likely new in the 60's. The outlets need to be replaced and the rooms are dark because of the bulb size, but for some reason I enjoy staying here. It's quite and shares the parking lot...

Day 6 one night Was looking forward to staying here but a little disapointed, whilst it has been theamed and looks fun it needs to be refurbished. It was kind of clean but is in need of some TLC. The steak house was ok and i thought i was goint to be noisy but it was ok.

we booked the hotel because it sounded fun and the reviews werent bad. Arrived and was in disbelief at what we found. Our room was filthy and sticky...the carpets were appalling and dont get me started on the bedspread! After one hour of being in that room i couldnt take the filth anymore...we left and ended up at the courtyard...

Western décor, yes, but room was dark and lighting poor. Front desk was gracious on checking in but could not get a second coffee pack so we both could have coffee in the morning. Price was fair. Convenient to highway and of course the restaurant.
