Marfa hotels were really full for the week we visited there, and we were lucky to get a nice room at the Riata by callng ahead the previous day. The manager and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay really enjoyable. Unfortunately the "fabled mysterious lights" were not so accommodating!
The rates were very reasonable in comparison with the other hotels in town and it was also in a great location, being close to town and also the nearest to the lights "viewing area". However , we found the rooms to be very basic and are definitely in need of upgrading. As frequent travellers and after staying in many different hotels/motels around the US we have come to expect certain basic facilities. At Riata some basic needs were not evident eg hair dryer, facial tissues.
