Lajitas and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. The hotel property was nice and the staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the room was not very clean and was in major need of some updating, especially for the price. The walls and cabinets in the bathroom look like they have never been wiped down and the shower head was old and corroded. I was definitely expecting more.
Staff there did well and were very friendly but many areas needed more staffing. The room needed detail cleaning and the shower head and faucet was in poor condition. The area is beautiful. I really loved the golf course Black Jack’s Crossing. The unfortunate thing is a closed snack bar and no cart service so bring your own snacks. Water is plentiful along the course as well as bathrooms.
Sitting in a glassed in restaurant with Mexico in view, this romantic setting was breathtaking. The hotel was so charming and screamed Western Flair! We absolutely loved it. We took pictures and rode around enjoying the mountains in the area. It's far out of the area and that was wonderful, we'll worth the trip. Be sure to dine also in the Chisos mountains for lunch as you enter the Big Bend National Park, stunning.
Just returned from a long weekend stay in order to be near Big Bend National Park. We stayed in the Clay Henry suite in the main hotel. Chose this option after viewing the suites in the newer area as the bathroom was nicer and this suite seemed roomier. Be careful of the two -tiered step down to the balcony which runs the length of the suite. Being on the corner, this balcony offers a view of the mountains which the other suites did not - another reason to choose this suite - 102. The bedspread is worn but the bed is reasonably comfortable. Hotel staff are very friendly. Restaurant food and service are "iffy" but adequate. Beautiful grounds and surroundings. Didn't play golf but the course is beautiful and offers a good spot for sunrise walks before the golfers tee off. Staying at the Big Bend lodge would be far more convenient for using the park, but the drive there and back is quite scenic. In all, would stay again, but the hotel could use some major updating in decor and furnishings.…
This is actually in Lajitas down on the Rio Grande. The motel is done in western motiff and the golf course is one of the best I've played. In the middle of the desert all fairways and greens were as well manicured as I've ever seen. No dirt patches or hard pan to hit off of and very challenging. Swimming pool well kept. I will be going back. Black Jack's Crossing is the name of the course.
