“Historic Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

This hotel is a national historic landmark that claims to at one time to be the best hotel between San Antonio and El Paso. It is magnificently restored and has that historic feel. The room was large and comfortable with a king bed and patio with a view of the plaza. The bathroom and shower are interesting in that you step up into the bathroom and everything including the shower are all the same level. It's also a relatively compact shower. The wi fi in the room is extremely poor, and the air conditioning unit in our room was extremely noisy. Be aware that the pool is shaded and water very cold. Also, trains go by the hotel and you know that they are there. It's a good hotel with a lot of historic charm.

This hotel has a gorgeous lobby and patio/fountain area. The personnel at the front desk were friendly, as well as the staff in the restaurant. We very much enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant. The hotel is elegant, historic and I just loved being there. There are shops in the front of the hotel. We also used the swimming pool once, which was a beautiful area. I will definitely stay there again should I find myself back in Marfa, which I hope I do.

This hotel was great. It really takes you back in time. It is a historic hotel. When you walk in you can feel how unique the hotel is. The employees are very friendly and make you feel welcomed. The room is very nice and clean.

We went to Marfa to see the lights. It is a town known for quirky and the El Paisano did not disappoint. We paid the extra for the Clark Gable room and it was a great trip back into history. It must have been an amazing hotel in its day. It still holds the charm of a bygone era. If you are expecting modern & sterile, then don't bother - this place is for a great experience.

Room Tip: Choose one for the character. Clark Gable was great

A very good hotel in little Marfa. It has a good mix of historic architecture and modern rooms. My king size bed in a large room was very comfy. The window overlooked Highland Ave however given the size of the town there was no traffic noise. I didn't notice the trains that come through in the night on the tracks a couple of blocks away. Bathroom was small but adequate and clean with big soft towels. Air conditioning was fine, though the thermostat in the hallway served several rooms.

What brought the rating down a notch was the lack of breakfast or lunch availability in the hotel. Coffee in the lobby in the morning was it. So one has to go elsewhere. Dinner can be had in Jett's Grill just off the fine lobby.

The hotel was very nice, a surprise for such a small town. There was a warm, comfortable atmosphere; the rooms and the lobby. The room was large, with a sitting area and porch, but it had the smallest bathroom there could possibly be....the best part was the people. I had read how nice the staff was, but they really went out of their way being friendly, especially Lupita, who was terrific. Thank you!

Room Tip: Room was extremely nice, at the end of the hall.
