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.

Adequate lodging for the price. Could have used a coffee maker, but coffee was available in the office during their open hours. Owner was very helpful with advise on what to see and do. This was my second time to stay here with consistent service each trip.

The ads are correct that the rooms are large and clean. As long as you do not expect a lot, then no problem. I had read previous reviews on the hotel and they were correct there were no blow dryers or irons in the rooms. There are also no coffee makers either. Since this hotel does not offer any type...

The Riata was great - very clean and spacious rooms and much better price-wise than anywhere else in Marfa. Despite a bit of a muddle up over the booking, Rick the manager was really friendly and helpful. My bag was stolen with the room keys in it and he was very patient about being woken up in the middle of... More
