We were not impressed--the property is run-down, very pricey (almost $1000 for four nights for two rooms!). We booked two rooms, and they weren't even in the same building, never mind next door--and were charged an extra $10 an night for the "privilege" of having a small fridge and microwave! As my son said, they forgot the word "LAST" before "RESORT" in their name! There wasn't even WiFi in the rooms--we had to sit in a noisy "game room" in the main building. What a pain. How pricey is it to get a router that reaches your entire property? That's just cheap and lazy.

As a “resort", it is a " LAST RESORT” !

For the same price I’m paying for the Hilton I’m checked into now, (with all of the amenities that implies) I had a singularly unpleasant experience at Big Bend Resort & Adventures. It was also the first truly bad experience I’ve had at a “Forever Resorts” property. I had read reviews but, I normally pay no attention to negative reviews that go on at length. At some point, however, one must say what should be said. Having read those reviews, I did check for bed bugs. THERE WERE NO BEDBUGS. There was also no microwave, no refrigerator, no wi-fi (unless one trapesed down to the “game room” in 33 degree weather). There was little hot water, very little house-keeping, deeply stained chair cushions, equally stained sink which was from a jagged rust hole where the overflow drain was supposed to be. The kind that take DECADES to develop. Add to that, laundry facilities, fifty percent of which were “out of order”, a shower curtain which was brown at the bottom and a tub which didn’t drain, a staff which DOES NOT answer the phone, even when Forever Resorts tries to call. I’ve included some pictures, but Trip Advisor may delete them.

Not what we expected

This "resort" was one disappointment after another. We stayed in a 5th wheel in the RV campground. The person at the front desk did not seem to care that we were a customer but just another interruption in her day. The "bathrooms" were disgraceful, they were dirty and looked to have not been cleaned in weeks. The lots were small which I can accept but to have people walk across your lot to shortcut was just too much. I was at the front desk as the "team" was discussing a break in a sewer line that they decided not to fix correctly but instead decided it was just best to keep others from using sites above the break. Another issue for me is, it is not wrong to live in an RV but to have your lack of respect for others in the park to allow your piles of crap to collect outside your rig and think that covering it with a tarp is an acceptable way of living is just too much. I do not expect my values to be accept by others, but this was just over the top. I will never return to a "resort" run by this organization again.This "resort" was one disappointment after another.

Good location, expensive for what you get

The best features of this lodging were its location, close to the park and a short drive to good restaurants. There is much potential to be a great place, but needs a lot of work. We stayed at the two bedroom lodge with a pull out sofa bed and kitchen. The place was spacious but everything was old and not clean looking. The beds were the worst, I was worried every night going to bed, the mattresses were thin and old, as well as the bedding. The upholstery was horribly stained, the washroom floors needed replacing, cobwebs on ceiling and kitchen was not equipped. All in all the place was not comfortable but it was convenient.

Simple But Good Basic Necessities, Great Location

If you are not camping, there are not many places to stay anywhere in or near Big Bend. Almost anywhere you stay involves some degree of "roughing it," except maybe for an expensive cabin or casita or the Lajitas Golf Resort. We found these reasonably priced motel units clean with the necessary basics. The bed was comfortable, the shower was good with plenty of hot water, there was a TV with satellite but reception, not surprisingly, was spotty and there were not many channels, and there was a refrigerator and microwave. We were only in our room to sleep. There was WiFi in the motel office and lounge which barely reached to our motel unit, but that didn't matter to us since we were on vacation and not trying to conduct business. The staff was also friendly and helpful. The location was convenient right in the center of Study Butte/Terlingua (not in the ghost town) with a gas station next door run by the motel and two really good restaurants nearby plus a well stocked grocery store with beer and wine right down the road. It wasn't the Ritz, not even Best Western, but we have no complaints. We would stay here again.
