The location of this hotel is excellent, right on the outskirts of the city. Plus, it's dog friendly so you can travel with a furry companion. My dog loved the vastness of the landscape. There are so many wonderful attractions nearby, including several art galleries, stores, the McDonald Observatory. The hotel is next to the Marfa Lights viewing area. The...

My recent stay at the Riata Inn was extremely disappointing! The property was poorly maintained: the front lobby door was weathered and appeared to be salvaged from a residential property and the doorbell was missing. I paid $99 for a large room that had scuffed and worn random furnishings, and an extra large box containing a bathroom vanity took up...

I was driving through the area on vacation and decided to stop for the night. Initial impression was the price was a bit high when comparing to Hampton Inn, Holidays, etc. They charged the same rates. I have a service dog that accompanies me. They wanted to charge me extra for having him with me. When I turned to leave,...

I headed into town on a Thursday, not realizing that there was a cinema festival and a wedding going on that weekend, so all of the places were booked. Luckily, the guys at Food Shark sent me over to the Riata and I got the last room for the night. The manager/owner was very friendly and made some suggestions for...

We recently travelled to Marfa for a wedding and stayed in the Riata inn based upon location and reasonable pricing. We were very pleased with our stay. The rooms were spacious, very clean with wooden flooring and the staff were incredibly accommodating. We were even encouraged to borrow the bikes on premises to tour around town. We were greeted with...

Very friendly staff and clean, spacious rooms. Perfect for simple, quiet, good motel stay in Marfa. Slept great, no noise. The front desk was really friendly! We'll definitely stay here again next time.

We were traveling through with our dog. It was pet friendly and one of the most affordable to check out marfa for a 1 night stay. It was older, but clean and comfortable which was great. But my biggest complaint was how thin the walls were. It's a motel, so the door faces the outside. I get that. But I...

I didn't expect much since all the properties in Marfa are overpriced, but this room did NOT have these things that are usually provided by other motels: tissues, hangers, hair dryer, coffee maker, breakfast, and no smoke detector - is that even legal?. It did have a microwave [we didn't need to use it] and a small refrigerator that leaked...
