If you stay at the Big Bend Nationalpark stay at the Chisos Mountain Lodge. If it's possible choose one of the cottages. You'll love it. The cottages are simple but clean and homely. You'll find WiFi only at the restaurant and the Ranger Station.

Location in the middle of the Chios Mts. is absolutely wonderful. Great walks and hikes along with many birds and even habituated foxes! But the hotel itself has almost nothing to recommend it. Needs major refurbishing to be acceptable. Quite the shame and little hope due to recent politics.

we had an awesome week-long stay here. staff was very friendly and accommodating. it was the perfect location within the park. short walks for outstanding sunset views. the windows hike is well worth it. make plans early though... tough to get short notice reservations.

Fabulous setting in a grand rugged caldron

Stayed at the Chisos Lodge for 3 nights. Great central location for seeing all of BB. The lost mine trail is a must. Access to Sanaa Helena Canyon, which is about 30 minutes away. Not to mis the Mule ears and the Carousel. The Lodge Diner is great after a day of being out. Great view, food is very good and the setting at the Window in the Chisos is unsurpassed. Great gift shop and good service. Rooms are basic, but you are not there to spend time inside. Don't miss the Lost MineTrail. Would g back in a heartbeat!

We were lucky. I kept calling trying to get a room as this place is usually booked a year or two in advance. I finally booked a room when I called and they had a cancellation. I am glad we switched to here from a place in Terlingua which is about an hour drive away from the basin. We were able to walk from our room right to the trail head of Laguna Meadows and begin our search for the Colima Warbler with no driving and we were able to sleep in an hour until 5:00AM. The room was clean and basic. It seems like the type of Mom and Pop motel that you check into to save some money and it fortunately is decent. The balcony was great with a view to Mt. Emery but other than that it was just the basics. The AC was a bit noisy. The shower was fine but at times the water in the shower and the bathroom sink was hot even when we had it on cold, and I mean hot. Seemed like there was some waste of energy there. Beds were comfortable and clean and room service was good. Other than the AC nothing really to complain about other than it didn't seem like anything special until you stepped outside and said wow! Oh, also we were not able to get WIFI in our room despite hearing that we would. It might only be available at the restaurant which was nice with a good menu, excellent service and decent food.
