Unique historical property booked many months ahead of stay. Period furnishings, loads of atmosphere, warm welcome, good to talk to other travellers. Room small and should have viewed others if we had thought to ask. Downside was our room was at the back of the hotel and so we were woken a 2nd time around 1am by a loud &... More

Nice stay fin ours revels take you to Clayton, which does not have many other options in any category. Small town with few hotels, restaurants, etc. We were there on an antelope hunt. History-rich property with friendly staff - the proprietor wears multiple hats, including chef in the restaurant on site. Few amenities that you would expect elsewhere (rooms and... More

We didn't realize how lucky we were to find this place until we arrived- historic, beautiful, & well kept. We had a room upstairs with a balcony overlooking the main street- it was so nice! The only downside was that we arrived late, and the front desk closed shortly thereafter. When we tried to return to our vehicle for something,... More

We are in Clayton frequently and prefer another lodging that we have used many times. The Eklund did not appeal to us from it's appearance. On this trip one of the others in the group made the reservations and chose the Eklund. Initially I was concerned after reading some of the reviews. But we decided to give it a try.... More

Great hotel, with lots of historical pictures and memorabilia in the hotel of the 'old West' days. We have a room with two beds, on a corner, with a balcony, altho it was too cold for the balcony that day. Service was very good. Why stay anywhere else when you can stay somewhere with history!

WE spent one night here enroute to Sedona, AZ. The room was comfortable with ensuite bath. There were too few electrical outlets but otherwise we were very pleased. There is a elevator. The adjoining saloon/restaurant was very good and we throughly enjoyed our meal. The morning breakfast (included) was a nice buffet.

Though I didn't stay at the hotel, I did visit the restaurant on my way back from Capulin Volcano National Monument. The food is amazing! The service was excellent! The restaurant is the saloon; what a remarkable atmosphere!

From the time you leave Amarillo until you get to Colorado, you're in an accommodation desert. There is a nice Best Western in Clayton but that's a waterhole. The Eklund is an oasis. The old part of the building was built in 1892; the "new" part in 1898. Our two queen bed second floor room which shared a balcony with... More

We had a wonderful time at the Eklund. We had the room on the balcony and Dennis played his guitar at night and we just relaxed and watched the people going in and out for the restaurant and bar. We had a few fans stop and listen to him play. the room was comfortable and the bed was too. We... More
