Second stop on a roadtrip across Texas.
July 4-5, 2013
Me & my husband Felipe
There are tons of old trucks in Marfa,
this one welcomes you to the hotel.
The colorful lobby plays great music, serves coffee at 8am, and sells a bunch of great stuff too. Those pillows are amazing.
Another look at the lobby.
El Cosmico dog cooling off on the blue tiles at the check-in desk.
Gift shop and shared minibar.
Here are the two teepees and a camper early in the morning. I wanted to book a teepee but they were all reserved…
This is where we slept. No frills, but a lovely Bolivian blanket. Rustic + romantic.
Inside our tent - comfy bed and warm blankets.
Also has outlets to charge your phone!
Here you get a better idea of how the campers are laid out.
Love the colors!
Rustic camper and its outdoor shower. Beyonce slept here too.
The skies are amazing out here. The stars are not to be missed either, I felt like I was in a planetarium.
This is the entrance to the lobby area, open from 8am - 8pm.
Highs + Lows
The landscape and sense of freedom you get here is hard to explain. You see millions of stars and hear nature and laughter around from other people in their tents… come open-minded!
The décor and gift shop are awesome. I wanted to take home everything in the lobby!!
Considering we were sleeping in a tent, the bed was very comfortable and the blankets were warm.
The website was great, easy to navigate, and gives good suggestions for things to see and do around Marfa.
The shared bathroom was very open… I'm not sure it even locked properly.
The tents and teepees don’t have locks, so we had our luggage in the car.

Campground / Teepees & Tents.
Hippies, hipsters, cyclists and gallerists hanging out under the stars.
Great location since you will most likely have a car or a bike to get into town, which is down the street.
8 Safari Tents, 4 Scout Tents, 2 Teepees, 6 RVs and open camp grounds to bring your own tent.

No, but you can rent a hot tub.
No, but there is an outdoor kitchen area if you want to cook up something for yourself.
No, but bottles of wine are available in the lobby to bring back to your tent or teepee.
WiFi is available in the lobby.
You could, but then go for an RV, the teepee and tent areas are on the quiet side. I can see kids loving this place.
Some might find it overpriced for what you get, but I found it to be very reasonable for the experience.

I could live in this amazing little shop - for the purist who also loves color.

Eugene Binder Gallery and Ballroom Marfa Gallery are both worth a visit, loved seeing cowboys and art in the same space.
