All about location - with dated and expensive rooms

Very good location as it's the only lodge in the park or anywhere near the park in general. But that being said, the rooms are old, dated and very expensive. And it can be very noise through the connection doors to the next hotel room. And the booking website is a matter of luck as rooms might appear available but aren't or the website doesn't accept payment without any information given. The hotel never responded to my complaint about that. So it's all about location here. Staff on the other hand was very nice.

Ideal Location

I didn't know what to expect after reading some reviews, but I found staying at Chisos Mountains Lodge was a great experience. Sure, the lodge is old and a renovation is in the works, but the room was clean, beds were comfortable and plenty of hot water which which felt great after a day of hiking. The only downside was a noisy a/c unit, but popping in ear plugs resolved that. That bottom line is nothing beats staying within the park. I probably eliminated 1-1 1/2 hours of drive time if I stayed outside the park. I would prefer to use that time exploring Big Bend NP. Would definitely recommend.

Lodge is an antique but convenient

We stayed one night at the lodge. Accommodations are adequate but old, and we paid over $250 for one night. The room had a twin and a full size bed. So small for 2 people. There is no A/C, but we didn't need any in April; it was very cool. The view through the "window" is lovely and an easy walk to see it. It is convenient to be in the park because everything else is a long drive. Marathon is 70 miles away. Get gas! We also bought snacks and water before starting the drive to the park.

A wonderful 5-day stay!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 full days in February, to enjoy some R&R, nature some hiking, as well as photography. We stayed in the Roosevelt VIP Stone Cottages, a brief walk (or quick drive) from the lodge and restaurant. The rooms were fine and what you'd expect from a national park lodge. Adequate, no frills but clean and comfortable. The double beds (vs. queen) were pretty cozy for two. The covered porch and old fashioned metal chairs outside the door was nice and nostalgic. If you are a light sleeper (like I am) the exterior screen doors opening and closing (slamming) early in the morning did cause some sleep interruption. But, overall our stay was so incredible. The rangers were accommodating with great advice and the convenience store was great for a few last minute essentials. We did a different hike each day, with the Lost Mine and the Window Trail being our favorites, Sunsets at the Windows Overlook (near the lodge), the Sotol Overlook (a 30-40 minute drive but worth it) and the Rio Grande Village Overlook (also a drive) were incredible. The food and service in the lodge restaurant far exceeded our expectations. Seriously! If you like fish, get the trout!

We enjoyed our stay here. It is really the best option to visit the park unless you are camping as all other accommodations are pretty far to commute into the park. The views from our balcony were beautiful! The room itself definitely could be upgraded as it was worn and dated. It was also fairly clean, but there could be some improvements there too. It seems to be priced pretty well in comparison to other national parks. Our room was about $200 a night after taxes and fees which is pretty good for a national park.
