We went to Marfa to see the lights. It is a town known for quirky and the El Paisano did not disappoint. We paid the extra for the Clark Gable room and it was a great trip back into history. It must have been an amazing hotel in its day. It still holds the charm of a bygone era. If... More

A very good hotel in little Marfa. It has a good mix of historic architecture and modern rooms. My king size bed in a large room was very comfy. The window overlooked Highland Ave however given the size of the town there was no traffic noise. I didn't notice the trains that come through in the night on the tracks... More

The hotel was very nice, a surprise for such a small town. There was a warm, comfortable atmosphere; the rooms and the lobby. The room was large, with a sitting area and porch, but it had the smallest bathroom there could possibly be....the best part was the people. I had read how nice the staff was, but they really went...

This is probably the only place to stay in Marfa and it's a lovely hotel. It is old but I think it's charming. The mattress on the bed was rather soft but I found this to be a problem with all the hotels I stayed in, in Texas. The staff were all very helpful and the food and drinks were... More

We spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay very much. We did book the Elizabeth Taylor suite (Room 212), so I cannot speak to the regular rooms. The suite is large with a full kitchen, living room, separate bedroom and bath and two small balconies that overlook the courtyard Clean, comfortable and quiet. Yes, the rooms are a bit... More

The common area, bar and dining was very nice and the staff was great. The rooms were horrible. There was a broken hanger in the closet, I didn't bring, that told me it hadn't been vaccumed. There was a missing knob in the tub, just the metal part that would attach a knob, dangerous if you hit it. The room... More

I initially made a reservation for three nights, checking in on a Tuesday and out on a Friday. Later I emailed the hotel and asked if it would be possible to move my reservation back one day, to Wednesday through Saturday. I received an email confirmation with the new dates—it was clearly a form email, identical to the first one... More

I have been staying at the Paisano for several years on business. This hotel is located in historic Marfa Texas and is the location for several movie crews beginning iwht "Gone With The Wind". Don't expect a phone u=in your room, but they do have wireless and a very comfortable set up. Enjoy the court yard in the afternoon and... More

The first thing that needs to be said about the El Paisano is that it has charm galore and is well appointed. Built by the Trost Brothers--who constructed a half-dozen other hotels/buildings in west Texas--this property was opened in the 1930s. The rooms are comfortable and there is a combined bar and dining room (plus adjacent patio), that feature both... More
