We decided to stay @ El Cosmico based on the NYTimes review from the spring. And, aside from the 100 degree heat, I found this property quite acceptable, funky, and (most importantly) clean. To all those considering staying here - know that none of the accommodations have AC. At the height of summer (ok, we visited during a hot week in June) ... this was not an insignificant factor. We stayed in a tent one night (and couldn't catch a cool breeze - the temp inside the tent was easily over 110 degrees) ... and a refurbished trailer the second night. Once the sun went down, it took several hours for the breezes to cool things off a bit. And, during our first night, there was a wonderful band playing in the common area. Still, if you pack a sense of adventure and keep an open mind (in the event some self-important poser looks at you with disdain) anyone can appreciate this unique place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- El Cosmico is an 21 acre nomadic hotel and campground in Marfa, Texas. In keeping with the belief that life should be a balance of adventure and do-nothingness we offer shelter, occasional entertainment, opportunity for learning/doing/making, and access to the majesty of the high plains desert. From its wide open spaces to the vast canopy of stars above, El Cosmico provides temporary liberation from the built world. It is second home to intrepid travelers and wanderers from all corners of the planet. Accommodations at El Cosmico include renovated vintage trailers, safari and scout tents, Sioux-style tepees, a Mongolian yurt, and tent campsites. The property also offers several communal spaces for guests - a hammock grove, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, a community lounge and mercantile, an outdoor stage, a reading room. We rent wood-fired hot tubs as the burn ban allows, and bikes for exploring Marfa. ... more less
