We had heard about Marfa and thought glamping seemed a fun way to experience it. It was. We arrived on Wednesday afternoon after a 3 hour drive from Midland/ Odessa. We stayed in the 1953 Vagabond and were not disappointed. There was a serious rain storm Thursday night and our trailer didn't budge. Very glad I was not in tent. We purchased food at a local market and cooked a couple of dinners and breakfasts. Some cooking utensils, but not many so verify what you need before shopping, i.e. no can opener. Our bathroom was adequate and the outdoor shower fantastic! Our activities included reading, cooking, and more reading. A stroll into town and the DQ for excitement!

Our reservation was screwed up for our third night. The staff was quite apologetic and El Cosmico booked and put us up at The Thunderbird. Although an error occurred, it was handled in the best possible way. El Cosmico is not a hotel and not for everyone. But we loved it, met some fun co-glampers, enjoyed the experience and wold definitely return.

Room Tip: Toilet inside and shower outside.

El Cosmico has everything - great space and availability for tents, TEEPEES and airstreamers that I can't wait to try, and super nice staff. Their lobby has wi-fi, beer and other drinks, and the bathrooms are in better shape than some campgrounds I've been to. Great personality and warmth, it's clean and happy, AND they have bikes you rent to go around town. That was a huge plus on this past trip. I would camp here again, no doubt about it.

We stayed in our own tents on-site. The hammock grove is great. There was a nice sense of communal respect among the other campers. Everyone picked up after themselves, didn't leave trash lying around and left behind what they weren't going to use for toiletries, kitchen, etc. This is a great spot to star-gaze and enjoy the evening breeze outside. I think I'd prefer to stay in a trailer next time just to have a private restroom. I love the outdoor showers. Lots of gathering places to mingle with other guests. They offer coffee in the morning, which is very appreciated. The staff was super friendly. Great selection of gear/gifts in the store.

Room Tip: If camping, try to get a spot next to a tree to get some mid-day shade.

We stayed in the Little Pinky trailor and found the trailer to be very small (as advertised) but just fine for a couple wanting a fun Marfa experience. The outdoor shower was fantastic. The hammock grove is great. Sadly, the landscaping in the grounds is lacking and the larger trailors could be a little nicer for the price they charge. Some of oour friends stayed in the Imperial and it has probably the best bed setup and is a huge comfortable trailer with a nice deck. If you're there with a group and like to stay up late chatting and laughing, that's not really possible because everyone in the place will hear you! Our favorite part of Marfa was the hangout joint "Planet Marfa" and the drive down 67 to the Rio Grande River. Overall, nice getaway in the middle of nowhere!

We decided to stay @ El Cosmico based on the NYTimes review from the spring. And, aside from the 100 degree heat, I found this property quite acceptable, funky, and (most importantly) clean. To all those considering staying here - know that none of the accommodations have AC. At the height of summer (ok, we visited during a hot week in June) ... this was not an insignificant factor. We stayed in a tent one night (and couldn't catch a cool breeze - the temp inside the tent was easily over 110 degrees) ... and a refurbished trailer the second night. Once the sun went down, it took several hours for the breezes to cool things off a bit. And, during our first night, there was a wonderful band playing in the common area. Still, if you pack a sense of adventure and keep an open mind (in the event some self-important poser looks at you with disdain) anyone can appreciate this unique place.

Room Tip: Trailers have fans - a MUST when booking in the summer time.
