Extended Stay Hotel in McAllen TX

Extended Stay Hotel

Nestled among rustling palms and flowering bougainvillea on 20 acres in northwest McAllen, the Texan Guest Ranch has offered Southern Hospitality to travelers for more than 85 years. Generations of guests have been introduced to the tropical magic of the Rio Grande Valley. In the early 1920's, the marketing of fertile Valley farmland for groves and agriculture to Mid-Westerners was initiated by bringing trainloads of people from those states to the Valley to see and purchase tracts of land. The Texan Guest Ranch lobby, dining room and kitchen were originally part of a farmhouse that was converted into a guesthouse. Over the years it changed ownership several times, finally ending with Curtis Davis as the owner. Mr. Davis gradually transformed the guesthouse and grounds into an "extended stay" facility before the term even existed in the hospitality industry. The Davis family continued the tradition of Southern Hospitality after Mr. Davis retired in the late 1990's--although he continued to introduce himself as the owner to guests at the Ranch until his death in 2015 at the age of 94. These days, you are likely to be welcomed to the premises by one of the Davis "kids" who still continue to operate the Ranch in the decades old tradition of Southern Hospitality.

Although much has been changed and updated at the Texan Guest Ranch, much is still the same: the lobby with its original serape mosaic tile floor and the family style dining room with the brass dinner bell to summon guests to the long wooden plank tables, the gentle whisper of ceiling fans and always the smiling faces of friendly staff that help make the Texan Guest Ranch your "home away from home."
