At the Chisos Mountains Lodge, the only hotel in the park, you can select from a freestanding stone cottage or a motel-style room, both within a pace or two of spectacular views—Chisos sunsets are not to be missed. It's convenient to stay here because it's close to trails, and there is a gift shop, general store, visitor center, and the park's only restaurant. Even if you don't stay here, go just
to see the stunning view through the wall-sized dining room windows. The Big Bend area retains its grand historic hotels, like the glamorous Hotel Paisano in Marfa, the Gage Hotel in Marathon, the Limpia in Fort Davis, and the Holland Hotel in Alpine, but it also boasts the Lajitas Resort and some more moderately priced hotels.
