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 later expanded into a record label.

Texas Hotel was voted Hot Record Label of the year by Rolling Stone in 1989. At the time, it was planning to release a solo album by Michael Stipe, and the band Poi Dog Pondering, which was signed to the label, had attracted attention. However, the solo album was not released, and Poi Dog Pondering moved to Columbia Records, without major success. Texas Hotel Records closed in 1996.
