While the hotel was charming, at the 11th hour just before our reservation for dinner, the hostess knocked on our door and said due to electrical problems, the restaurant would be closed. I asked about the bar and she said that would also be closed. There didn't seem to be any imagination on the part of the staff to accommodate... More

This hotel is pretty inside and out and quite charming. The lobby is beautiful and the sitting area is well appointed with Texas inspired leather chairs and a huge fireplace. The courtyard is large and features a large fountain. A nice gathering area. The room was small but fine for two people. The bathroom was very small. No complaints except... More

Like many historic hotels, rooms can run small. Opt for a larger suite upstairs overlooking the courtyard. If you must stay in Marfa, We love this old hotel! It has a nice bar and it's own restaurant "Jetts" which we hear is very good! My only complaint was not being able to light our outdoor fireplace.

For me, this hotel is one of the few reasons to visit this town - no; I'm not a fan of the local art scene; but I guess others like it. It has heaps of charm & history; and nice staff. Rooms are comfortable, but bathrooms are VERY small. It has the only decent restaurant in town; but beware it's... More

I love this historic hotel, but it's time to shape up - competition is coming and I'm afraid the Paisano will suffer if they don't make the rooms more pleasant to be in. Can't change the bones and wouldn't want to, but: 1 - it's time to freshen up - our room was smelly. Either the no-smoking rule is not... More

I booked a mezzanine room for one night at $199. My reservation stated that I would get a room with a king size bed/suite and patio with fireplace. What I ended up getting was a king bed room with kitchen and patio (no fireplace). There is not a phone in the room nor a elevator at the hotel. They didn't... More

This place isn't for everybody. The rooms are small, the soundproofing not so good, the bathrooms are minuscule. But the building is fabulous, the public spaces delightful, and the location convenient to Marfa's major attractions. We loved it.

I was on a road trip and Marfa was one of my trip destinations - I wanted to see the Donald Judd foundation there. I did a search, found the Paisano Hotel, and checked it out. It has a sort of old school feeling as if it's been around for a long time. A very charming place, a good restaurant... More

This is really a unique experience. The movie Giant had 6 weeks in the Hotel with cast and crew! Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, James Dean and crew stayed and worked at the hotel, watching the daily cuts and eating and partying together. The suite where Elizabeth stayed was very nice and you could just imagine her resting after each day's... More

Not that they'd be hard pressed to change anything, seeing as the alternative housing options in Marfa are limited. I realize they're trying to keep the historic theme, down to the endless playing of "Giant" in the gift shop (albeit with the commentary track when I peeked in), but the room décor could use a little upgrade, perhaps reflecting the...
