The rooms are large but the size does not make up for the qualities lacking. shower poor, door cards needed to be recharged daily, missed the cleaning of the room and other than location it will not be used again.

I had a great experience here at Riata Inn. This is an older motel but don't let that be your guide to whether it is nice or not. My room was very neat and very clean. The A/C was cold enough that you could hang meat in the room. The service was top of the line. I believe the managers... More

I enjoyed staying here. The staff was friendly. The room was spacious and clean. It is located near a General Store and Cowboy church. The swimming pool is clean. It was quiet. Large screen TV and a small refrigerator in rooms.

We have had the opportunity to stay at the Riata Inn on 2 occasions in the last couple of months. Sandra and Christopher delivered excellent service and were very helpful. It is a real plus to be able to have our dogs be comfortable. The rooms are spacious and clean, the beds comfortable, the air conditioners kept us very comfortable.... More

Had a very comfortable stay at the Riata Inn. The rooms were large and clean, and the service was great. Staff was friendly and attentive to our needs; all interactions felt personal. If you're looking for a simple, reasonably priced place to stay in Marfa, I would recommend staying here.

I've stayed here before and at another Riata Inn and I've always had a good experience but this time I was surprised to see the rooms renovated. They feel refreshing and more up-to-date than they did before. The staff is friendly as usually and were happy to help with anything. The room is much larger than your average hotel/motel room...

If you are going to stay in Marfa you are going to pay for a decent place to stay. I guess the hotel owners figure by the time you drive to Marfa you'll pay anything for a place to sleep.The Riata Inn is no exception but not quite as much as the others we looked at. It is located just... More

We had six people stay here during a motorcycle trip around the state. Had reservations made months in advance and after we arrived, I noted that hotels are very limited in town so price was high for what you get. This place is very rustic and could use some maintenance. I had no real problems but this motel reminded me... More
