Enjoy big-hearted Texan hospitality at our hotels in Lubbock, the hub city of the West Texas South Plains. You’ll be in easy reach of the state’s wine country, the historic buildings of the National Ranching Heritage Center, and the Depot dining and arts district.
Our hotels in Lubbock are near the Buddy Holly Center, which chronicles the life of the city’s favorite son. A giant pair of the musician’s distinctive glasses greets visitors to the museum. Amble across the open grassy fields at the National Ranching Heritage Center on the Texas Tech University campus. The park’s historic ranch houses and barns offer a picture of the West Texas landscape in its cattle-ranching heyday. It’s possible to drive onto the university campus, dotted with stately redbrick academic buildings. Sign on for a free tour of the Museum of Texas Tech or check the athletics schedule for upcoming Red Raiders football games. With kids in tow, guests at our Lubbock hotels head to Mackenzie Park to spot prairie dogs at Prairie Dog Town or ride the vintage carousel at Joyland Amusement Park.
The dry days and cool nights of West Texas are ideal for growing cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay grapes. Taste your way through the many wineries in the surrounding countryside, a short drive from our hotels in Lubbock. Choose a steak house or barbecue joint from the restaurants in the Depot Entertainment District, along Buddy Holly Avenue near 19th Street. Enjoy Texas wines or local beer and catch a live country music show at any of the district’s bars and clubs.
Book our Holiday Inn® Lubbock hotels in September for the raucous rodeos of the National Cowboy Symposium, or in April for the Apple Blossom Celebration, when the nearby Hi-Plains Orchards’ are in full bloom.
