We stayed one night here and would recommend this hotel. I loved the character of this grand old building. We had a suite, which was very spacious. Beds and bedding were comfortable-pillows need to be upgraded. There were two flat screen tv's on our room. We had a jacuzzi tub-nice on a chilly night!! The desk clerk was so very... More

We stayed here during the off season and had a very nice time. Since it was in the off season ( between Thanksgiving and Christmas) and during the week we got a great rate on the room, and even better when we arrived found that we had been upgraded from a king room to a king Jacuzzi suite. Don't arrive... More

Fabulous location downtown is as good as it gets. Old building, full of charm and character. Immediately adjacent to the Basin Springs city park and the mountain energies on the back wall of the hotel are very calming. We slept like babies, thoroughly enjoyed the history, spa experience and the walk through town. The staff were very accommodating, helped us... More

Called Crescent Motel and made reservation then found out our reservation was at Basin. Unfriendly staff the three days we were there. Walk in hotel and not one person could say hello but were at the front desk. No explanation of where anything in motel was. Floors did more than squeak from being old. You felt as though the person... More

Thank you for your recent feedback, specifically regarding the lack of customer service. Please know this is not our standard of services. Our Balcony Restaurant menu is pretty reasonably priced for any downtown restaurant. We do offer seating in the War Eagle Outpost cave where our breakfast is served but seating is limited. Again, we apologize if you were inconvenienced... More

We stayed here for our wedding and the staff, accomodations, and overall impressions were exceptional. Remember that this place is old, so the floors creak, the doors squeek, and the hallways are somewhat dark, but this all adds to the atmosphere of the grand place. The staff were polite, outgoing and always ready and willing to go the extra mile... More

Aside from a great location, this hotel has NOTHING going for it. The rooms are outdated, furnishings are 25 years old or more. No closets, no vanities, NO HEAT, no bueno. This hotel is located in the heart of Eureka Springs. That's the best thing I can say about it. They are trying to go for a "quaint" turn of... More

Thank you for your response. We are sorry that our hotel did not meet your expectations. We deep clean our hotel twice a year and continuously are working on updating our room decor and furniture. Many of our rooms differ from each other so we encourage you to stay with us again and you will probably find a room to... More

I visited the Basin Park Hotel last night. I was there for the ghost tour with a group of family and friends The place has a fun funky charm and a great location right down town Eureka.

Thank you for your response. It is true that it takes a good amount of money to upkeep a historic hotel. Every year we invest in renovations. This year alone we had updated various rooms with furniture, blinds, carpet,toilets and other room decor. We are looking at a new furniture shipment to come in at the end of the year. More

It's old, 106 years old. So go expecting to experience history. We loved our stay.

If you're looking for cookie-cutter and modern, don't bother making a reservation here. However, if you want something that looks and feels like original Eureka Springs -- this is the place for you! No big-screen TV, but it's right in the middle of bars and restaurants, AND you can take the guided ghost tour for entertainment. We even discovered that... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are a historic lodging so no rooms are the same or have the same floor plan. It's a great hotel to stay at downtown if you don't want to have to drive around. You can just walk out the front doors to the lively area of our downtown shops, restaurants, and... More
