A new low -- 90 minutes standing in line just to check in! No water, no restroom, no chairs. Ridiculous. Apparently this was due to high demand from spring break and the eclipse, but that's no excuse. Both the RV section and the rooms had one guy handling all the check-ins, and he wasn't especially speedy. Everyone has staffing challenges but that's no excuse either -- management should've covered and picked up the slack. Then the bleak room -- that lacked tissues and provided just one wash cloth -- wasn't worth the money they charged.

Bing Bend Station ain’t that bad.

Don’t let the bad reviews scare you. It’s not the greatest but it’s fine. I’ve stayed here many times. It’s cheap but clean. Ive always found the staff to be nice. Lots of rooms so you usually can get a room when others fill up. Handy cafe next door.

I really enjoyed my stay in its 2 queen beds motel room. The bedroom and bathroom sink/mirror has been remodeled. There's a mobile device charging port in the room and reading lights for each bed. The room is clean and spacious enough for 2 adults. The motel location is very good, just right at the intersection of highway 118 and the road to Terlingua, next to the only gas station around Terlingua.

Soon after arriving, asked the office to please move a picnic table to our RV site which did not have one, as my partner was not able to help carry one from another site, and was told they would, but then dissed me, never sent anyone to help move one. Wifi is non-existent outside of lobby. Bathrooms and showers were marginally OK. Lots of dust in the air when vehicles drive by. For the price for a RV site, could have been considerably better.

Do Not Stay - Awful Hotel and Guest Services

Big Bend is AWESOME!!! This motel IS NOT!!! There are many things wrong with this property – I will go into detail on one of them. You will not have hot water often (or any pressure to push hot water into the shower head), and you will have times when there is no water at all. You will also not get an honest answer from the front desk either by telephone or in person, as to the status of potentially, sometimes, having water. Our stay went like this: Day 1 Wanted to shower after long drive – office said no hot water, took an ice-cold February shower. Day 2 Woke up to no water at all – office said would be repaired by our evening return – it wasn’t. Afternoon clerk said the message was never given to the repair folks. Day 3 after another trip to the office, learned that nothing had been done and the repair folks were not notified – bright spot in the journey, the repair folks were quick once notified and went to work. We had hot water for a short time (able to take a warm shower – the only warm shower of the trip). When we returned in the evening, no water at all. Day 4 Woke up to still no water. Even though we had paid for one more day, we checked out and left. Strongly recommend that you do not stay here.
