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.

We went and stayed for two nights, the first night in "Little Pinky" which was awesome! Very nice and good relationship between the accomodation and the Price! The second night we stayed in a safari tent this was a horrible experience! It is way too expensive for what it offers. The night is almost 100 usd and the tent was... More

El Cosmico is such a lovely, unique motel that adds so much to the Marfa experience. We stayed in a teepee and loved all the little details -- candles on a side table, pallet daybed, upcycled tire ottoman, wool blankets. The beds were the most comfortable we'd experienced during our West Texas getaway. The gift shop included an excellently curated... More

My wife and I visited and stayed in one of the Tee pees and had a great time. The communal bath house is a little too hippie for my taste but was still a great stay. Very quiet and unique. Prices were good.

If you're planning on staying just to be cool, you're wasting your time and money. If you stay here, you will be rewarded for the 'special' in specialty accommodations... whether it's sleeping in a hammock... a tent... a teepee... a yurt... or a trailer. We stayed in the Vagabond trailer on two very windy nights in mid-May. It has a... More

I did not know how to phrase it ...but that's it! Taken from a review in 2012. The place is amazing. Having a drink outside our beautiful trailer at sundown was a treat. But the Cosmico staff is so cold and unfriendly! We thought it was because we were travelling with our kids (girls 9 and 12, not the kind... More

We visited El Cosmico in April 2014 and we stayed in the "Royal Mansion". The trailer was really cool and comfortable. It has an indoor toilet and 2 sinks with hot & cold running water. The trailer has it's own private out door shower with hot & cold water. However, due to high winds and cool temperatures the out door... More

Marfa's a pretty neat place, with various art galleries and relatively upscale restaurants. I camped here for one night, and this is among the most eclectic places I've visited. It's rare finding a place to camp in Texas that isn't an RV park. The tone is set with the whimsically painted trailers they rent. The showers and toilets have a... More

This place is certainly eclectic. Its got several different options for you ranging from 'bring your own tent' camping, to safari tents, tepees, or full airstream trailers. Obviously each option has its own price point. Ive listed them from cheapest to most expensive. There is a communal kitchen and lounge area inside the main office building. Coffee is provided in...

Swung off the interstate and into Marfa on a whim this January, and since I was traveling with my dog I decided to camp at El Cosmico. An excellent decision! So, first off know that it's camping, even if you're staying in one of the cute-as-button trailers. It's not a hotel, and if you go there with that mind-set you'll... More
