Accommodations and Dining

Spur Hotel
The Spur Hotel is centered in the heart of Archer City, Texas.  The Spur Hotel is the perfect atmosphere for gathering with friends and family at your next celebration, book review, writers conference, hunting trip, or business retreat.  Originally built in 1928, the historic Spur Hotel was renovated in 1990.  The hotel is visited year around by book enthusiasts browsing Larry McMurtry's bookstores, guests of the famous Royal Theater, and a variety of wild game hunters.  Click here to visit their website for details on lodging, pricing, and reservations. 

Ruthie’s Place
Ruthie's Place is located approximately a half mile from the square of Archer City. This is a great place to gather with your family or friends. It is fully furnished with linens and cookware. All you need to bring are your clothes. There are plenty of eating areas within the house and out. However, if you want someone else to do the cooking, there are several places in town. While you are in Archer, check out Larry McMurtry’s Book Store located on the square and other businesses in Archer City! Click here for more photos and additional information on Ruthie's Place!
