The Big Texan Motel was chosen as one of the “Coolest motels in America,” according to Budget Travel.
The Big Texan Motel was ranked at No. 5 !! Writers at Budget Travel had this to say about Amarillo’s Big Texan Motel:
“The towering cowboy figure flanking the roadside sign for the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo is a dead giveaway of the adjacent Big Texas Motel’s over the top throwback vibe. Not convinced? Just take a look at the motel’s façade, which looks like the set of a Western movie, and the Texas-shaped pool.
Opened in 1960 and located on Route 66, just a few minutes from Rick Husband International Airport, the property’s rooms feature campy touches such as swinging saloon doors, old-timey wooden furniture and animal pelts, all of which add up to a theatrical Old West atmosphere.”
