The lodge is rustic, needs some upgrades for sure but the views are unbeatable. Overall we were very comfortable if you go with the right expectations. You'll have to take stairs so be prepared. They give you all the amenities you need, we wished we could have stayed longer just to sit in such beauty. The restaurant is nice. They...

We stayed at Emory Peak Lodge room; nice king size bed. take note it is 30 steps to get to the room and only a few close parking spaces. The bathroom was small but adequate. Great location right by the trails and the only lodging, other than camping, in the park. At 5400 feet elevation, it was a lot cooler...

Beautiful at day and amazing star gazing at night! Remember the speed limit in the Park :-) The hikers lunch was delicious, I had the chicken salad wrap. Waiters in the restaurant were so friendly and great resources for park information.

We stayed in the Casa Grande Room for 1 night in April and would have preferred to stay more nights had the Lodge not been fully booked. For comparison, we stayed at the Gage Hotel in Marathon for 1 night and enjoyed the Lodge 10x more (not to mention it's half the price). Highly recommend booking months ahead. Location: the...

The Chisos Basin itself, and particularly the Chisos Mountain Lodge, was a perfect home base for our 3 days in BBNP last week. It is cooler up in the basin, and the Lodge (although showing its age a bit around the edges) was low-key, homey and right next to the trailheads--just what we needed for our visit. There is a...

Spending most of our day on the go with a Road's Scholar group, this was an ideal location for day trips to three ecosystems: mountain peaks, desert springs, and walks along the Rio Grande. The breakfast and dinner buffets were sufficient for this vegetarian with soups and salad bar and fresh fruit. Rooms are old. Very motel like. The convenience...

We loved our quiet and comfy room in Casa Grande Building B! We were on the second floor with a quiet balcony. The mattress was firm and comfortable,The linens clean and fresh and the towels were large and fluffy, shampoo and soaps were unscented.When we opened the window and door we got a refreshing cross breeze so it never felt...

My brother and I stayed in the one story Rio Grand Motel portion. The lodge rooms, restaurant and stores are all in walking distance. The campground is much further away. The views are breath taking! The room had an oversized mini-fridge that came in handy for all the food we brought for our stay. Had we known that the convenience...

I'm giving it 3 stars only bc the bed was so uncomfortable. We stayed in the Emory Peak Rooms after booking last minute. I loved the location of these rooms bc they were further away from the motel rooms closer to the stone cottages and we were also in the rooms furthest from the parking lot- longer walk up stairs...

We never could figure out why people said they used the Gage Hotel in Marathon (an hour away) as a base for exploring Big Bend when the Chisos Mountain Lodge is right there in the park. After staying at Chisos, we understand. Of course, the location is fabulous with outstanding views all around and trailheads out the front door. The...
