Texas Hotel Records was an independent record label based in Santa Monica, California, which released records by singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt, Henry Rollins and the Rollins Band from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. The label started as a record store and morphed into a record label.

The label was voted Hot Record Label of the year by Rolling Stone Magazine in 1989 when it was pursuing the project of releasing a Michael Stipe solo album and when there as a huge buzz around Texas Hotel band Poi Dog Pondering. The Stipe project never took shape and Poi Dog Pondering eventually signed to Columbia Records but never made it big. Texas Hotel Records closed in 1996.
