Stayed here for two nights in June because as far as I know, it's the only hotel with a pool in Marfa, and with the Texas heat in the summer it's nice to have. You check in across the street from the main building.. hotel is more like a motor court, where you drive right up to you room's door. The rooms were nice and clean over all. Air conditioner leaked a little, I'd say because of it's age... so keep your books away from that area. I slept on the day bed (there were three of us in the room), which house keeping never made like they did to the queen. The hotel never informed us on check in that the pool area closes at 9 (?). Our problem was when we called the emergency number to find out why the pool area was locked, it took them about 20mins to call us back (no one from the hotel is on the grounds overnight as far as we knew). They offer bikes to rent for riding around town (that was a blast), their close to everything if you just want to use the bikes instead of your car. It's good to have ear plugs, trains come through the town at night and the tracks are just behind the hotel (Marfa is a very small town). Had a nice stay over all, and would be willing to stay here again.
