  • Substandard in Terlingua - Texas

It had been a long and busy day in Big Bend National Park so I was really ready to eat dinner and find a bed in Terlingua. None of the motels I saw seemed that great looking, so I settled on the El Dorado because I love the John Wayne movie with the same name. Bad choice. The lady that checked me in was rude and abrupt. The room was rundown and in bad repair, and the hot water was only lukewarm. The bar co-located with the motel only served beer. I do not plan to return here. $76 in February 2010.
