We spent 3 nights here while exploring Big Bend and it was fabulous. Our room was very attractive and we were on a a courtyard that had a wonderful view of the hills, particularly at sunset. We were worried about the shared bathrooms but this proved to be a non-issue. There is also a very attractive outdoor b-b-q area which we did not use. The breakfast at the little cafe is yummy, particularly the fresh oj.

Terlingua is an interesting little ghost town and La Posada Milagros fits right in. We booked here because of tripadvisor reviews and the proximity to Big Bend and we were delighted by the town and the inn. The accommodations are so cute; we booked the room with the private bath (which is a short walk from the room). The outdoor fire pit and the beautiful views added to the super experience.

I stayed here for two nights on a hiking holiday in Big Bend National Park. In the park itself there are only camping and the chisos lodge. Terlingua is the nearest "civilization" to the park and is about 40 mins drive away. Terlingua has all the amenities (gas, food, beer) that you need and of all the hotels La Posada Milagro is closest you will get to high-end luxury.

The rooms are spotlessly clean, there is wifi and aircon and the Posada itself is beautifully decorated. Note that for some rooms you have to share a bathroom and there isnt a 24/concierge.

In the morning the Posada has a cafe which serves excellent food. The Posada also comes equipped with a shared fridge and cooking area (including BBQ) for guests.

Just a couple of minutes walk away from the Posada is the Starlight Theatre, a great bar and restaurant where you have enjoy a beer with the locals and talk about your trip to Big Bend. All the locals are incredibly polite and helpful, although some are quite scruffy in appearance!

I would recommend La Posada Milagro to anyone visiting Big Bend.

My brother and I spent one night in La Posada Milagro, Terlingua, TX on Jan. 15, 2017. Terlingua is hardly a conventional town. It had a population of 58, according to the 2010 US Census and had only one paved road. However, it is ideally situated for visiting the Big Bend National Park (12 miles) or the Big Bend Ranch State Park (6 miles). La Posada Milagro is hardly a conventional hotel. It is made of several clusters of connected bed rooms, each sharing two shower rooms and a toilet room. Each cluster has an open courtyard where guests can sit around and drink beer. The whole complex is built on the slope of a hill, overlooking Terlingua below and the mountains beyond. The bed room we had was comfortable, with clean bedding, fluffy towels for the shower and toilet and a bathrobe to wrap oneself up for going out at night. The shower rooms and the toilet were nice and clean and everything was working. We came to Terlingua late in the evening. Driving in the dark on an unpaved road, looking for the hotel was a bit unnerving, but once we entered the complex, we were surrounded by friendly, helping people. The owner, Mimi, showed us our room (the San Carlos room), the shower and the bath, made sure we were comfortable with the set up and explained to us where to have dinner and breakfast. We had a wonderful dinner, slept soundly and were perfectly at ease with going out of the room to the shower and toilet.
It was only in the morning did we realize how extraordinary this place was. From the window of our room, we could see a sliver of golden light, peeking out of the shadow of the distant mountains. Then we experienced one of the most wonderful sunrise while eating breakfast outside the small restaurant Mimi had just added to La Posada Milagro. The air itself appeared to have a vibrant color, painted the rooms spread over the slope of the hill with the most exquisite golden tint. A wonderful photo opportunity!
The cost of our room was $220/night. It was not very affordable. However, if one does a search online, one would realize how difficult it is to find a room in the Terlingua area and $200 appears to be the going price for holiday weekends. I highly recommend La Posada Milagro in Terlingua Ghostown.

I chose this accommodation because it's one of the most upscale choices near Big Bend National Park. It did not disappoint. Located in Terlingua, which is called a ghost town but is not a true ghost town because people live there. The Posado is a restored Adobe/stone single story accommodation with just a few rooms. But they have been restored and decorated very tastefully. The bedrooms are small but ample and nice with a bathroom next door in a separate room. The bathroom was great - large shower and plenty of room - almost as large as the guest room. Robes and super soft towels were provided. There is also an area to barbecue outside. The guest house is located up a short dirt road from the Posado's cafe, which is located along the main road into "town." The cafe serves good coffee and breakfasts (I had a delicious breakfast burrito.) Not a true B&B, there's a separate charge for the food and drink here, and the cafe is open to the public. But it's very convenient for the guests as well. Also, the best restaurant/bar in the area, the Starlight Theater, is located a short distance away. I went there for dinner two nights. One other point: I arrived late and left early each day, so I never met anyone upon checkin or checkout. Upon arrival, directions were taped to the door of the cafe and the key was in the door to the room. Everything was clean and spotless, but I never met anyone other than the ladies working in the cafe. Don't expect anyone to be around if you need anything, although the caretaker's number will be made available to call if you do need something.
