Hotel in the middle of marfa that is both comfortable and unique, appearing much the same as it did when Liz Tayor, James Dean and the rest of the Giant cast and crew stayed there years ago. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and it's just a very beautiful place to lay your head for a night (or three).... More

Marfa is offf the beaten track but definitely worth going to. The Hotel Paisano is the "go to" hotel in town. Good service, great rooms, good restaurant, food and swimming pool. Beautiful historical hotel which in itself is worth exploring.

We knew this was an old fashioned hotel which was fine but the quality is not what it should be. Old fashioned can be cool, fun and comfortable but the Paisano was none of those things. The fittings in the room were poor and the bed linen terrible. The service, as with most of Marfa, was couldn't care less. They... More

Had to check this hotel out after staying at the hotel El Captain which is owned by the same people. Enjoy staying at historic hotels and this one was used by the cast of Giant, James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor. Our room was wonderful, loved the private patio and very comfortable bed. Very nice that they provided wine glasses, now how... More

This is a beautiful, very comfortable hotel. We had and alley view, which was not attractive, but the wall of our patio was high enough that it didn't bother us. The fireplace on the patio would have been fun in a cooler month, but it was nice on the chairs in the morning. The bed and linens were super comfy.... More

Beautifully maintained and cool hotel. We stayed during the week, the restaurant was crowded, even with reservations, we were unable to get an outside table. We picked up that the courtyard dining was a 'local' hangout. That was a little disappointing but no big deal. As my granddaughter said, the room felt like a 'regular' bedroom. It was comfortable and... More

The Hotel Paisano is one of Marfa's historic treasures, so whether you book a room here or not, it is worth a visit. I didn't book a room here, but visited the bar a number of times, and bought a lot of Marfa-related gifts for friends back home. I would definitely consider staying here during a future visit.

Spent three nights at the Paisano during Viva Big Bend. Really enjoyed the atmosphere, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable, but small and overlooked the alley behind the hotel, with a dumpster on prominent display. Live and learn. If you're going, make sure you get a room overlooking the courtyard. Rooms are small in general,... More

Built in 1930 in the style of Spanish courtyard architecture, this hotel takes you back in time but still provides plenty of modern comforts. Restaurant was excellent as well as the brisket tacos at a local food truck. Presidio County Courthouse is within walking distance. The "famous" lights of Marfa are hit or miss.

This is our second stay at the Hotel Paisano. It's like a step back in time. The staff is great, the rooms are clean and when the say European style bath that means you can sit on the toilet, wash your hands and draw your bath all at the same time. We will stay here again. Make sure you ask... More
