The Hotel Matador is a historic cattleman's hotel, very nicely remodeled into a bed and breakfast in the small, quiet town of Matador, Texas. The B & B is operated by three sisters who are friendly and caring, but not intrusive. They are descendants of West Texas pioneers and are very knowledgeable about the area and it's ranching history. As a solo traveler, I stayed in the Library Room, a smaller room with a very comfortable bed, a wall of nicely selected books of all interests, and an updated, clean, attached bathroom. The hotel has a nice patio area, with a grill and a seating area with a fire pit for cool evenings. The lobby was very welcoming and a great place to read or plan your trips around the area. I was also given a key to the old jail museum, which has a nice video on the Matador Ranch and the history of the area. Recommended for its historical atmosphere, clean, comfortable rooms, and great breakfast.
We stayed for one night and our suite was just absolutely beautiful! In the morning, we couldn't wait to get up! We had an amazing breakfast made by Marilyn which was delicious! She was a wonderful hostess. Three sisters own this beautiful hotel which they have restored to its magnificent era, but with all the modern amenities. We want to go back in the near future. Definitely worth the drive!
My name is Barbara Abbott, my husband and I stayed one night in the Matador Hotel in Matador, TX. It was an excellent stay, the room was very nice and comfortable. It was like stepping back in time. We stayed in the Cotton Belt room but each room was decorated beautifully. Marilyn, the owner, was exceptional!! Very friendly and outgoing and made us a an awesome breakfast, we could easily get spoiled. We give this place and exceeded my expectations!!
The rooms are lovely and the ladies are fabulous. If you stay on Sunday night it may be difficult to find restaurants to eat at because nothing is open. One suggestion that might be a good idea for the hotel is to offer breakfast choices for their guests. Some individuals will not eat egg as any other way except scrambled, that's not the hotels fault just a picky eater. Just a suggestion. I liked that the sheets smelled like bleach because you know it's sanitized. Cleanliness is the most important thing to us in a hotel room. The shower was amazing, with multiple streams that helped sore muscles recover after hiking in Caprock Canyon. One other suggestion I have for the hotel is to invest in better pillows. The furniture is beautiful, the atmosphere peaceful, and amenities were wonderful. We had a great time and would recommend this hotel to our friends and family.
Spent a weekend at a breath taking B&B. The history, the home feel setting, and excellent staff, the Matador Hotel B&B is an excellent place to stay and enjoy a fabulous small town. The Matador Hotel is so closes to state parks, Town of Turkey, Matador Ranch, and tons of Western history. A perfect place to relax and enjoy peace. Totally worth every moment and memory.
I loved staying here. The building was pretty and so very clean. We stayed in the quilt room, and it felt so homey. Marilynn was a wonderful host! The full breakfast was outstanding. We were served a homemade cherry and cream cheese pastry, eggs, biscuits, sausage gravy, homemade preserves, and potatoes. It was delicious! I loved the Hotel Matador. Even my three-year-old did not want to leave.
We were so impressed with the wonderful experience of our stay at the Hotel Matador. The facility was just such a piece of history filled with special touches. The three sisters are just a joy, and their love for the town and this historic bed and breakfast is very evident! Job well done!
Hospitality was second to none. The remodeled rooms feature every modern comfort while still maintaining the historic western atmosphere which the small sleepy town of Matador is known for. The bed and breakfast is rich in history and curtesy.
My sister and I spent three nights at the Matador Hotel B&B and it was wonderful. After my business fell through it was comforting to return to such a peaceful place. The breakfast were great and Caron one of the three sister owners is a sweet and very pleasant woman. If you are out west Texas way be sure to stay here.
I was expecting more of a hunting hotel but was very surprised as to the amenities provided at the Matador Hotel. A/C worked great, room was clean and cozy, and bed was comfy. Breakfast was amazing and the owner was very nice and called us by name. Very impressive.
From the website pics to the storefront, from the time I walked in the door, the ambiance of Hotel Matador engulfed me in warmth and serenity. I loved the decor, the room, the food and Linda was so nice and accommodating, meeting every expectation or request with her personal attention. I am looking for an excuse to go back there!
My daughter and I stopped here as part of a motorcycle tour weekend. Karen, our hostess for the evening, was gracious and welcoming. Matador is a tiny town with plenty of character and quiet surroundings. I would highly recommend Hotel Matador for a quiet getaway.
Most people probably do not know where Matador TX is or pass through it on their way to somewhere "important" in Texas. Believe me, it is well worth driving a few miles off the beaten track from Wichita Falls to Lubbock or Amarillo to stay in this charming Bed and Breakfast. Good people, good food, good service, and really lovely rooms.
