This is not a town for everyone, so let me preface this by saying I love Marfa. On a previous trip I stayed at a different "hotel" and wanted to try something new. My boyfriend and I took an anniversary trip to Marfa in February, braving the West Texas winter, and booked a teepee at El Cosmico. It is everything... More

This looked like it would be a lovely place to stay, it was clean and green and the check in person was very friendly. Unfortunately, when I "car camp" I actually sleep IN my car, and since you can't drive up to the tent sites I would have had to sleep in the parking lot. I wound up at the... More

We stayed in a large vintage trailer with AC, a private inside toilet and private outside shower. If you are looking for the cheapest accommodation or most privacy, go elsewhere. But if you want a fun, memorable, offbeat and unique experience, this is your place.

Great for the younger crowd that wants to camp or glamp! Laid back, love the vibe. Not for the modest as the shared bathroom facilities are not completely private. My husband and I had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again. You can rent trailers, teepees, yurts or bring your own tent!

Positive: Every detail is super cool, tastefull, insta-worthy; Atmosphere is really relax; Clients are hip and trendy; Teepees are large inside, and you almost get the comfort of a real room. Super friendly staff with good advises, especially Mimi. Negative: If you are used to your comfort and attached to it, do not go to El Cosmico more than one... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed at El Cosmico a total of 5 times now, and we simply love it more and more with each trip. Whether you stay in one of the trailers, the teepee or the yurts - it's the perfect "glamping" adventure. You get privacy in your own place, but also a fun, community style way of... More

I stayed at the Tepee for 2 nights. Check-in was easy, she showed us to the Tepee and explained the rules. Fell in love with the place. Open Restrooms was the best part, it is not bad as you think. Be sure to bring your own toiletries. Let me tell you, we went to El Cosmico in the Summer. I... More

Marfa is weird. It's a tiny little speck of a city (is it a city? It's so small!) between Big Bend National Park and El Paso. It's kind of hard to get to, and there isn't much to do there. Yet, somehow, it's hip and trendy and popular with young hipsters and artists and people living a nomadic life and... More

Interesting and unique little trailer/camping hotel just outside Marfa, TX. We got one of the safari tents and it had poured the afternoon we arrived, so the grounds were all muddy and full of puddles, but also everything in our tent was damp (it was 98% waterproof!). We requested new, dry pillows, which the staff happily and quickly gave us,... More

It's a place for when you are in your 20s or early 30s or married with no kids. Its definitely modern hipster with 60s hippy dressing. They need more bathrooms and showers. The Lobby an the Grounds are the "coolest" part of the park. Teepee was hot. Go big and get a trailer.
