Really liked being able to park my vehicle right by the room!

It was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! We definitely will return!!

Great little motel with a cute retro western decor. Loved the Christian wall decor too. Felt very welcome!!

The novelty of the property was great at face value. But after closer inspection the property needs regular maintenance and upkeep on a regular basis! Our room was very outdated, hard beds, large spider in bathtub upon arrival, shower/tub control were loose and almost falling out of their fixture. Almost best to stay at near newer hotels and just drive over to enjoy the restaurant which has good food and great service!

Great themed room.

It was great to be able to walk right to restaurant. We had a great meal and service was great. The room was a bit dated but had a nice western feel and beds were comfortable . Great stop for our RT66 trip.

It smelled strong like smoke. We called the front desk but they said there are no more rooms and they didn’t offer us anything, just said they will tell manager.

I have been to Amarillo and The Big Texan steakhouse on road trips throughout my life and have always wanted to stay at the motel since i was a kid. 30 years later i finally made that a reality and got to share it with my daughter. The morning of my stay I got a text with the code to get into my contact-less room, which was a pleasant surprise because we would be arriving quite late in the evening. I had previously asked for a ground floor, princess colored room, and was not disappointed by my ground floor, bright pink room, which I could even see in the dark Texas night. Our room was beautifully appointed, with that Texas charm throughout, with saloon doors, longhorn decorations and wonderful touches throughout. The room was spotlessly clean and neat. Two of our favorite touches were the sound machine that was identical to ours at home, and the door for everyone to sign! I have to give a special shout-out to the night manager who eased my fears about a tow truck, so thank you. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and encourage anyone passing through Amarillo to not only eat at The Big Texan, but stay there as well.

Clean rustic cabin like rooms, bed was comfortable. Our room was towards the back and it was quiet despite being close to interstate. Newer, softer towels would be nice but definitely not a deal breaker.

A great stop for traveling with horses! Never had to unhook the trailer and the restaurant was great.

Fun place to go

The western theme was great. Loved how it all blended in. The toilet did not flush correctly and had to hold handle down for awhile, but otherwise all was good. Would stay there again.

The front desk staff was extremely helpful..when we couldnt get the TV working, she used her own Netflix password so we coukd use it!!!

This is a great, fun, themed hotel! Each room is uniquely decorated with Texan and western decor. My young son thought it was the coolest place! Check in and out was easy and contactless. I just wish they had breakfast. Very clean and comfortable beds.

This place is awesome. The rooms are themed, clean and comfortable. The restaurant has great food and atmosphere. It was surprisingly quiet for the proximity to the highway. Very pleased and will return next year for our annual road trip.

There is plenty of parking before and after dining times. Rooms were clean and folks were quiet/ respectful for a good sleep. Food IS TOP NOTCH!!!! Servers and desk hostess were friendly, fast and attentive. Can't beat the cooking for a damn great steak! Been going here for 7 years when I come through town, and it never disappoints!

It was very nice, close to the airport, great place to eat across the parking lot, and great customer service

Loved the place!
