Make yourself at home at our hotels in Lubbock. In no time you’ll be immersed in the region’s colorful ranching history or sipping local chardonnay in West Texas wine country.
Pay homage to the city’s favorite son at the Buddy Holly Center, a short drive from our Lubbock hotels. The museum’s Holly memorabilia includes hand-written songbooks, fan mail and even some of the musician’s 1950s stagewear. Take your picture with the giant Holly eyeglasses in front of the museum, then drive a few blocks north to the Louise H. Underwood Center for the Arts. The galleries here showcase modern local artists and are always free. Take a drive to the east end of town. Imagine yourself on the West Taxes frontier as you tour the restored historic ranch houses and barns scattered across the National Ranching Heritage Center’s 16 acres of grassy fields.
Guests at our Lubbock hotels are close to the city’s Depot Entertainment District, a cluster of restaurants, bars and clubs along Buddy Holly Avenue where you can dig into a Texas-size steak or a plate of barbecue chicken. Join the monthly First Friday Art Trail, when the Depot’s galleries stay open late with free special exhibits, and round out your evening with a Texas wine or locally brewed beer in the Depot bars. After a restful morning at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Lubbock, take a short drive out to wine country. The region’s dry days and cool nights are ideal for grape growing. Several wineries welcome visitors for tours and tastings of local cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay wines.
Stay in our Lubbock hotels year-round, whether you’re cheering on the bull riders at the National Cowboy Symposium in September or rooting for the Texas Tech Red Raiders teams year-round.
