"Horrible" Chisos Mining Motel Tip by brknhrt

Chisos Mining Motel, Terlingua: 167 reviews and 0 photos

Horrible people, dirty filthy place. We stayed in the motel portion, although they do have cabins. The motel is so badly rundown and dirty that I could never recommend this place to anyone. The bed and linens had been sprayed with Raid bug spray and the smell was overpowering. I am asuming they had bed bugs. There were holes in the screens, carpet, bedding, and walls. We ended up leaving and sleeping in our car which was cleaner, smelled better, and more comfortable. We still had to pay for the dump though because they run your credit card when you arrive. The woman at the front desk was surly and unreasonable. They are supposed to be pet friendly, but the pet fee was twice the advertised price and then they tried to add an additional $50. I would advise staying farther away from Big Bend Natl. Park and drive in.
