I travel a lot for work and am privileged to stay in some very nice hotels. Paisano equally ranks with the best for being interesting, charming, clean, grand, and well appointed with close attention to details. Reminds me of boutique hotels like Kimptons, without the complimentary happy hour. Love all the memorabilia throughout the space. Also they welcome dogs and... More

Location and service are great. But like most things in Marfa, inflated prices are the norm...and you have no choice. Nicely preserved or renovated, though. Quiet and effective air conditioning, good linens and beds are comfy. The place is fairly quiet, even near the railroad tracks.

Nostalgic and fun! The pool was refreshing following a day of hot sun activities. Shops are one of a kind and proprietors very helpful. We will be back to stay in the Rock Hudson suite! Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Room was fun and comfortable.

This picturesque hotel is as charming as it is lovely. We were greeted by a very nice woman at the front desk and had an easy check in experience. The courtyard is inviting, especially after taking a look at the cocktail list. We were lucky enough to get a corner room with a sun porch. Even though it overlooked the... More

If you are a fan of the movie "Giant," the Paisano is a must-see. My best friend booked the Dennis Hopper suite for us as a birthday surprise, and it was everything I thought it would be. Dinner in Jett's Grill was pricey but well worth it. Try the fried artichoke hearts, which are unbelievable. I did have what I... More

Continuing our mini vacation with our granddaughter we went from Ruidoso to Marfa Texas to show her where I grew up. We stayed two nights. The hotel is really old and is historic because the cast of the movie "Giant" stayed here. The atmosphere was was great and the people were very friendly. The down side is the beds are... More

Paisano review I'm here right now and between the housekeepers banging doors and the weed eater outside the window, sleeping in has been impossible. Pair that with the incredibly small bathroom with the sink in your ribs while you attempt to use the toilet and lack of refrigerator and no microwave PLUS the $159 + tax ($179), has left me... More

This is an old hotel but beautifully restored and in wonderful condition. Remember this is an old hotel so the bathrooms are extra small. However, the room was large and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is no elevator so you have to carry your bags up the stairs to your room.

Loved it! How many hotels can you go to that they will hand you the key and say go check out the room that this person stayed in? Only in Marfa! We stayed in the Rock Hudson suite room 211. It was wonderful except the attention to detail in cleaning. The shower head needed some CLR. The event needed to... More
