50 rooms, three stories, and more items in the surrounding area. The thing that I enjoyed most was the animated bartender. I wish that his sound could've been a little louder. But it still was interesting to think of what made him tick. While in...More

I loved all of the old antiques. It reminded me of my grandmother's house when I was a kid. She had a lot of the same stuff.

The West of the Pecos Museum is actually the historic Orient Hotel. As the story goes, this hotel was once the premier hotel of West Texas. With its early 19th century looks, I'm sure she was a beauty in her day. Not only does it...More
