I have stayed here several times while traveling cross country by motorcycle. It is one of the few places to find a room in Marfa and it is a quick driving distance to the Marfa lights. Sometimes the stays are nice, and at other times, the room needs some attention. So ... it is often the "luck of the draw".

The sheets where dirty and the owner after 30 minutes of knocking and ringing the door finally answered and would not replace the sheets. The bathroom is need of repair and filthy. My brother's room was in the same sorry state of dirty sheets and dirty bathroom. There was a ring around the tub and the facets had not seen... More

Last resort for the days needed. Paid $200 w/tax for two nights (big time rip off). No discounts (was told they did not jack up the prices so they did not offer discounts).!!!??? Room was dirty (don't think the floor had ever been cleaned), room in process of being renovated with new wash stand in box sitting in the room.... More

The Riata is reasonably priced and walking distance from the galleries, bars and restaurants of Marfa. We were told (although not by the landlady) that the lights were visible from the car park and are pretty sure we could make them out! A pretty good bet for Marfa, which is definitely worth visiting.

Paid $77 plus tax for a room with broken tub parts, broken vanity, no coffee maker, no available ice, no hair dryer, an air conditioner that sounded like a tractor. There was a huge cardboard box in one corner of our room. Only one chair for two guests. Very disappointing.

Not much choice for lodging in Marfa. Everywhere else was booked. Next time I would drive to another town. Paid $100 including tax. No discounts. Room was dirty. Toilet seat broken. No coffee pot or hair dryer. Chipped paint on ceiling with area of black mold noted. Front desk staff was friendly but I would not return for another stay.

Comfortable beds, good heater,air cond. and an okay shower. Friendly staff are a plus but the vanity counter was dirty and the bath fixtures were coming off the wall. Toilet was also loose from the floor.

This was a nice hotel at an affordable price. It's close to all the big attractions in town, the judd museum and a host of smaller galleries. The room was spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of parking by your room.

The owners were very friendly, but for the price that we paid, we would expect hot water for our showers. It was lukewarm at best. Wi-fi didn't work in the room, but it did work in the lobby. This was attributed to an unusually windy day.
