Hotels in West Texas

At this prairie ranch outside of Abilene, breakfast is served and beds are slept in. Otherwise, Rancho Loma, or what owners Laurie and Robert Williamson call a Restaurant + Rest, is a serious departure from a traditional B&B.

This John Wayne movie set of a resort, complete with tumbleweeds and horses tied to hitching posts, is on 27,000 acres of desert and mountains near Big Bend National Park, in far southwest Texas.

The elegant hotel dates to 1912 and rises 17 stories above downtown. Grab a drink in the lobby bar, with its ornate Tiffany-glass dome.

A clean and modern chain hotel.

On an 18-acre plot here, hotelier Liz Lambert has created the ultimate retreat for couples looking to get away from it all—El Cosmico, a collection of five expertly restored vintage travel trailers (including two Spartans and a Vagabond).

Hotelier Liz Lambert has injected this formerly dilapidated 1950’s motel with some quirky modern style, juxtaposing contemporary design with Western touches.
