I understand Marfa is a hip destination, I understand you guys host a super cool music concert, and that you furnished everything with style. However, you should be less pretentious (merchandising t-shirts for sale at 50$) and provide a better wifi: with 7 people logged in it was impossible to work!

If you are in Marfa tx this is a must! My husband and I stayed in the yurt and we loved it!! In the day it is hot but during the night time it was cold and comfortable!! And not to mention the stars at night look AMAZING! They also have hammocks which I loved! I will definitely come back😊

This place is pretty neat. You can bring your own tent, stay in one of their tents, a teepee, a yurt, or a vintage travel trailer. I stayed in the 1949 Spartan Mansion. It was really cool and actually very spacious. The bed was comfortable. There was a sort of couch/bed combo in the living area. It was alright, not... More

I had always wanted to stay in a trailer at El Cosmico. On line they look great and knowing that the place was owned by Liz Lambert owner of the San Jose in Austin, I thought that they place would be cool!. However, our experience was anything but cool. We stayed in the "Imperial Mansion" trailer, which is the largest... More

El Cosmico is so neat. I had my wedding reception here and my friends and family rented the whole place out. The staff (shout out to Lizzy) was so friendly, helpful, and accommodating! This place is so fun. Truly an experience. El Cosmico is just fantastic!

Despite travelling through the States on a budget, we decided to splurge on a few nights accommodation at El Cosmico and were so glad that we did. We stayed in Little Pinky, their smallest (and I personally think cutest!) caravan and had such a comfortable stay. The decor is gorgeous and the smaller touches really make a difference - bathrobes,... More

Stayed two night and loved it all. I do recommend the hot tub ..... under the stars. Not plush or opulent but very comfortable and had everything we needed. You can cook on their outdoor grill so take a steak.

This is a great idea...fun and unique accommodations, edgy feel, and a good mix of people. The down side is the cost. Why pay about $100 to stay in a safari tent or teepee with an army of your local insects and no a/c when you can bring your own tent for a tenth of the cost and have the... More

Very cool place to stay. They offer several rental options like tipis, tents and RV. You can also bring your own tent and set it up for the stay. Very laid back and relaxed. Feels like one big family.

I found this place online a while ago and knew I wanted to stay here at some point. I stayed in the Royal Mansion trailer and was happy I did. It was fun to stay in an old, restored trailer, and I felt very comfortable. The trailer had a nice porch, and the bed was very comfortable. Just know that... More
