... might be the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to Prada Marfa, the site still gets thousands of visitors a year, despite Route 90’s low traffic flow. Most people buy the artists’ story, but a few vocal dissenters have flooded the internet with conspiracy theories.

It's also one of the only hotels in the city unless you want to sleep in an old trailer (they rent them out as rooms for the experience). I'll take the hotel.
