Hotel Overview

“A Diamond in the Desert”, a commonly used name for the Best Western Plus Swiss Chalet Hotel & Suites by many who have stumbled upon this charming hotel in the West Texas town of Pecos. Situated between and within a half mile of both the Municipal Airport and Reeves County Golf Course, and adjacent to Maxi Park, this hotel is part of an oasis of Pecos.

Known for having one of the best breakfasts in town, the hotel offers homemade pastries, made to order eggs, fresh fruit and an endless buffet of homemade foods. A specialty item is featured each day such as Swiss Eggs Benedicts, Mexican casserole, build your own breakfast tacos, and more.

Guest rooms are quiet, spacious and well-appointed with large tubs and extremely comfortable beds. The hotel features a full size Gym, and an indoor pool and hot tub enclosed by a beautiful glass gazebo. For golfers, golf cart plug-ins are conveniently located on each patio of the Cabana guest rooms. Golfers can drive their cart directly from their room to the course. If you enjoy cooking outdoors, cook your own BBQ at any one of two Cabana outdoor cooking areas, then relax in the fresh air or cozy up to a warm fireplace or fire pit, while enjoying your delectable meal.

Prefer to eat out? The Alpine Lodge Restaurant is a short walk next door, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, while highlighting specialty buffets for breakfast and lunch, and popular nightly specials for dinner. Enter Ol’ Barry’s Tavern to enjoy a cocktail, local brew or glass of wine. Read about Switzerland’s most famous St. Bernard, ‘Ol Barry, or slip outside onto Ol’ Barry’s Surf Club Patio to catch a glimpse of the sports on 70-inch TVs.

We invite you to enjoy this “Diamond in the Desert” and look forward to making your stay a memorable one, one that we hope you will enjoy time and time again!
