Austin's Chuckwagon Motel Review

Foremost at this lodge are friendly service and immaculate rooms: choose between standard rooms at the motel-style lodge or stand-alone cabins. The owner has taken great care to create comfortable accommodations with queen-size beds and satellite TV. The especially nice outdoor pool is one of the largest around. Zane Grey, the famous Western novelist, used to rent an 1892 cabin on the grounds of this pleasant complex. On-site general store has a deli and a bakery.
