Love this hotel! They accommodated us with a last minute request to arrive a day early, which was amazing and saved the day! Personalized welcome and friendly staff. It's consistently a cool place to be, to stay and to have connected chats with other Marfa travelers. Love the owners and the staff! Can't wait to visit again.

loved the space - very simple. i had an issue with my shower, and the staff came right away to take care of it. it was raining my first day there, so it made the perfect day to catch up on work emails. the desk that was provided worked perfectly! wifi was great! i wish it had been warm enough to use the pool... next time! thanks for a great stay!

Really enjoyed our one night stay at the Thunderbird! Staff at the front desk (owners?) were welcoming from their very first words to us. Happy to provide recommendations too. Rooms were aesthetically pleasing and had a great ambiance--especially the funky radios tuned to a local station! Only downside was our air conditioning didn't work very well. It was fine for spring, when you could leave the door open during the day and the window at night, but I wouldn't have wanted to experience it in the middle of summer. Overall, great value out of a not too expensive place to stay!

Hi! Thank you so much for the review! We really enjoyed having you as our guest, and look forward to seeing you again soon. I will pass on the compliments to our staff. We are diligently working on all our A/C units - maintaining and replacing. The dust we have had in Marfa in the last couple of months has made it a challenge to keep up. But we are on it! Thank you on behalf of all Thunderbird staff.

The Thunderbird helped define why people go to Marfa, but after passing hands a couple of times, started to feel a bit stale. But new owner Jose has breathed new life into the establishment, improving everything about the look and feel of the hotel, while adding more to the sense of place. While there are other sleep experiences, outside of camping I can’t imagine one more linked to the city’s lifestyle. The room is well designed and very comfortable, and the staff have creature comforts such as great toiletries, a cool mini-fridge and the world’s best hotel ice machine. If you are new to Marfa and feeling a bit lonely, head over to the re-established lounge next to check-in (across the street) ad hang out with the staff who are friendly and will give you the lay of the land.

We had an amazing time visiting Marfa and the Thunderbird Hotel was the perfect place to stay while exploring the town. The design of the hotel and our room was excellent. Location is just a short walk into downtown and very close to excellent restaurants, coffee, and the grocery store. The social area around the pool was a great place to relax and very spaced out for social distancing. No question we will be back to Marfa when more things open back up and the Thunderbird Hotel is the only option we’ll consider
