Handy location to stay when enjoying Big Bend.
My wife and I stayed two nights here while visiting Big Bend. It is a modest motel, but clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We met some interesting travelers as we watched some beautiful sunsets.

Clean bed and reasonable cost for this remote location
The choices are limited in this remote corner of Texas. Proximity to Big Bend Park is a big plus. The staff was helpful in making reservations and recommending local dining and attractions. The motel is "rustic" but clean and offers a good nights rest. That is about all you need on this adventure.

Bare Bones Lodging
Stayed for 5 days. Room was ok, nothing fancy. Liked the porch. No TV, no internet. no fridge, no coffee maker. I can do without TV, but need internet. Bed could use a new mattress. Rates seemed high for week stay. Friendly service and nice location, but I might look elsewhere next time.

Decent lodging in out-of-the-way location
We stayed in a motel room for three nights during the recent spring break. As other reviewers suggested, this room was 'bare-bones', but it was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had lots of hot water to clean up after hard hiking in Big Bend. The location is excellent: right at the west entrance to Big Bend and close to the eating establishments in town. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and gave us good recommendations for early coffee. I don't know what people expect in a very out-of-the-way location like Terlingua, but if you aren't camping, this place has what you need for convenient and reasonably comfortable lodging. Big bonus: very limited TV and no cell phone service in the room. Yea!

Big Bend Adventure - Old Guys' Spring Break
We planned an old timer's trip for a little hiking and decided that a day in Terlingua would be nice logistically to visit sites in and around Terlingua and Lajitas. The Easter Egg Valley Motel (Chisos Mining Company) was an inexpensive opportunity to do just that. It is located near almost everything and was modestly comfortable. The registration was easy enough although they accepted pre-payment by check - not credit or debit cards. Old School!
