My room was spotless, and on the east side of the motel which has a fantastic view of the desert, Brenda the managaer was friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. The rooms inside are big with new wood floors, no carpet, and they are clean and modernize., But the only reason I don't give 5 Stars is because...

The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable . Brenda at the front desk was great. She was very helpful and took the time to tell us about the local attractions. The view is a pasture with sheep and tumbleweed. We had a great stay.

It's on the main road so easy to get to when you drive in to town. All the rooms are on the ground floor, so no stairs to deal with. The rooms are clean, huge, and have a microwave and fridge. All this made staying there with a toddler really convenient. In terms of facilities, there's nothing available as such...

This motel would have gotten a full "5" from me if housekeeping and maintenance would have done their jobs better. There was a mop string caught in the door jamb. Maintenance did a poor job blending and painting where a hole from a door knob had been patched in the wall. The room was narrow but quite long. Comfortable bed....

The best experience was the check in. The gal was funny. We had two rooms. Both had pull out couches with no linens, pillows or blankets. The front office gal graciously offered us her personal blankets. No hair dryer. No coffeemaker. Holes in furniture. Broken table. Drawers with no bottoms. Closest hotel to Marfa Lights. Close to Pizza Foundation (call...

Traveling cross country and wanted to see the art world of Marfa TX. We and our dogs had a great restful night at this convenient Inn. Quiet, clean Texas size rooms newly renovated with a friendly helpful staff. Close to downtown but still quiet. A winner!

Riata Inn is a perfect place for a weekend stay at Marfa. The rooms are big clean and well lit. The staff were super friendly and the room has all the usual amenities including TV, microwave, mini fridge and wifi. It's on the way to Marfa lights viewing point and close to everywhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

We stayed for two nights with our 4 year old son and had a great experience. Staff was friendly, rooms were big, clean and well maintained. The property perfectly fits the vibe of the town. You can step out and see the sunrise and sunset since the property is at the edge of town. Will stay here again if we...

Good place to stay right on the edge of town and not very far from the Marfa light turn out. I believe they have the biggest rooms I have ever seen for a one bed motel. The room had all the usual amenities except for a coffee pot. I would like to have had a hot cup of coffee in...

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.
