As local travel experts, we know what travelers are looking for when it comes to finding the perfect accommodations for their next trip. To compile our lists, we scour the internet to find properties with excellent ratings and reviews, desirable amenities, nearby attractions, and that something special that makes a destination worthy of traveling for.
Unique hotels abound across Texas, however, none quite compare to this one in terms of quirky charm. Hiding in a middle-of-nowhere desert town called Marfa, this unassuming shipping container is actually an Airbnb — and you can stay in it for less than $200 a night.
