Clean rooms and great staff. Extremely service oriented and made every effort make our stay the best possible. The managers provided great recommendations for dinner and even made us reservations. Motorcycle friendly. Would definitely stay again.

We had six people stay here during a motorcycle trip around the state. Had reservations made months in advance and after we arrived, I noted that hotels are very limited in town so price was high for what you get. This place is very rustic and could use some maintenance. I had no real problems but this motel reminded me...

We stayed here with 4 other couples and while the location was fairly convenient, and the price was pretty right (compared to other lodging in Marfa), the hotel left a lot to be desired. It was not very clean, and our room was in process of being remodeled so there were large boxes everywhere. One of the other couples in...

My experience during our stay at this facility was relaxing and very pleasant! Definately returning to this property on our next trip to the Small West Texas Town of Marfa! Upon arrival the lady in the front desk reception, I couldn't quite say her name, Rosario, was very welcoming and friendly. Made us feel right at home! Upon arriving into...

I Really enjoyed our stay at the Riata Inn. Best price in town, and great staff as well. Upon arrival we were greeted by the manager, she was very friendly and answered every question from the Marfa lights viewing area to finding a place to eat. Our room was very nice, the remodeling was a big improvement for this place....

My big question about Marfa, is why is the lodging so expensive? This room would have been $20 less in either Marathon or Terlingua. That said - pros on the room - large, clean, comfortable, firm bed, microwave and frig, and hot water!! Cons- dated, old odd shower head, broken toilet seat, worn, thin towels. Pool was in need of...

It's a motel. I don't expect much, but this one is a bit pricy. They take dogs, which is nice as it seems no one else in Marfa does. Room seemed clean, I didn't come across any thing to worry about. Big room, which the other hotels don't have for sure. Basically: it's a motel on par with Motel 6....

This hotel is really bad. Our group stayed in 3 rooms over the course of 2 days and it is a complete failure. The rooms were uniformly filthy, they looked like the floors had not been cleaned in weeks. My bathroom was filled with hair, and not just hair from one person, different colors of hair. Not gross enough for...

Not a lot of choices in Marfa. Clean, friendly and reasonable. Everything is close by. Dogs allowed, which is a necessity with our three. Apparently there have been some past issues here, but we were very comfortable and the staff was very willing to accommodate. With friends in the area we will be back.
