Big Texan was pet friendly, that, and the steak challenge factor influenced our decision. We thought it would be fun, and the room was fine. It was clean and appeared recently redecorated. Nice towels and clean carpet. Pillows were tired, but two together was comfortable. Really the only disappointment was the mold/mildew above the sink where the roof had leaked....

We wanted to eat at the Big Texan Steak Ranch so it made sense to stay at this motel. Our rooms were great; we even had saloon doors from the room into the bathroom area. We let the boys have the pink themed room, and we had the “cowboy brown”. The motel has a pool in the shape of the...

We stayed here on our route 66 trip. With a little effort they could make this place really pleasant. Carpet in the room was very dirty. The lamp on the bedside table was broken not a big deal normally but the rooms are very dark. With some new paint, carpet and care it could be really cool. I gave it...

Average hotel. Room was fine for budget accommodation. We locked ourselves out of the room accidentaly and when we went to the office to ask for some new keys they were extremely rude and acted like we had committed a crime and slammed the new cards down on the counter and turned their backs on us. Apart from that it...

This is a charming hotel. It is set up to look like an old Western town with different colors. In the middle of the lot there is a little dog park where you can sit and let your dog run loose. That was a very nice addition. The room was cute too. The window had shutters like you would see...

We stayed here on our road trip home from TN to CA. It was not my first preference as we were traveling with a newly-crawling baby, but it was inexpensive and allowed pets, so it fit the bill for us. We were in the back building near the horse corals, second story. The room appeared clean, although not as fresh...

The Big Texan theme certainly continues from the restaurant to the motel. The outside of the motel is painted consistent with the theme, and I really liked that; however, because of the theme, which uses a lot of wood, I felt like our room was a bit dark. One of the dark brown bed covers had stains on it, and...

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!
