We stayed on a trip back to Arizona. Was everything we imagined it would be. Our room had swinging saloon doors that led to the bathroom area. The shower curtain was brown suede with fringe, yes fringe! The rooms are old, but are clean and comfortable. The price was right $69 per room. I was a little hesitant to stay...

We picked the Big Texan Inn as we were moving from Dallas to Portland, and we thought it would be a fun place to spend our last night in Texas. Overall, it was pretty much as advertised. The Texas kitsch was a nice touch in and out. The rooms were well decorated, although small. The room A/C never really cooled...

This was a cute, Western themed hotel. The front staff was very friendly and accomodating, and the hotel itself is next door to the Big Texan restaurant. The room was certainly rustic, but very dated; the ceiling, both inside and out, was damaged in places, but that may have been part of the overall feel that the hotel was trying...

The Big Texan was not what I expected. I didn't read any reviews or look at any pictures before we booked our room, and maybe that's the best way to do it. We drove into the parking lot and our jaws dropped. It was just so Texas. The motel room fronts were decorated as an old western town. We stayed...

I stayed here in 2001, and really looked forward to coming back. It was somewhat anticlimactic. The front desk staff were friendly. They are not capable of making reservations on line, which is odd in this century. I stayed in the back building. The room was clean enough for me, but my wife would not like it if she had...

We stayed just overnight. Our room was very fairly priced and the staff at the front desk was very personable. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. We stayed in the Alamo building and the room we were in was older. The place is fun for picture taking. I rate this place as average just...

The outside is themed like an old western town street and the rooms follow this quirky theme. I was especially amused by the saloon doors to the bathroom. The room was clean and well equipped with toiletries, the bed was comfortable but the room was dull. I was on the ground floor and couldnt have the shutters open to get...

Stayed: December 2012. 2 double beds. Sink is separate to shower & toilet. Pros: - Big Texan Steak Ranch is next door for those wanting to attempt the eating challenge, or just have a meal. - Shampoo/conditioner 2-in-1 provided. - Quirky decor, very fun environment. Cons: - No in room safe.

This hotel completely exceeded my expectations. It was clean, comfortable and it felt likewe were in cowboy town with saloon doors and themed linen and pictures. Flat screen tv with many channels. The pool was even amazing, in the shape of Texas! Would definitely go back!
