“If you like character and charm, this is the place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We recently stayed 3 nights at the Basin Park Hotel and had a fabulous time! If you like the non-cookie-cutter hotel stay with tons of history and charm you will love the Basin Park Hotel. The rooms have been decently renovated over the years and the staff is friendly and helpful. Our 3 night package came with a history tour as well as free shuttle service and discounts to certain shops. We also did the Ghost tour which was fascinating. The floors creak and the stairways are narrow but the hotel is full of charm and the location can't be beat - right next to the park and in the middle of shopping, dining and bars.

Room Tip: The third floor is supposedly haunted! ;)

We stayed two nights in the Basin in mid October. We had a large room on the third floor facing the street. The room had a sitting room and bedroom, both quite large.The air condidtioning unit was very modern and quiet. Noise from the street was not a problem at night--maybe because we were there in the shoulder season. The hotel is old and historic, so the floors creak and the hallways are dark. However, our bath was nicely updated and pleasant. We found the hotel in good condition for a refurbished but not totally remodeled building. We had a fine meal (trout) on the balcony restaurant. All in all, we had wonderful warm fall weather and enjoyed strolling the streets of theis historic resort.

I stayed at the Basin Park Hotel recently, and had a great time. Lovely historic old hotel, very peaceful and comfy, great views, and helpful staff. I'd highly recommend it to others looking for a nice place to stay in downtown Eureka Springs.

Room Tip: I quite enjoyed staying in a corner king jacuzzi room. Great views, particularly from the windows in...

The hotel is located perfectly in the center of downtown. Unfortunately it is showing its age. The floors need reinforced or something as they slope towards the center of the hotel and we could hear every step the people in the room above us took (and unfortunately they were very loud and was up most of the night). We stayed mid week, and there was no breakfast or coffee shop available in the hotel. We were 'upgraded' to a jacuzzi room and we were a bit surprised to find out that meant two bathrooms, one of which had a jacuzzi bathtub.

This was our second time to stay in this hotel as we return to this area every six months to drive with our motocycles. The first time we were bit disapointed with this hotel as we got a supersmall room in front of their spalobby where people walk by all the time. This time i took a superior kinz size room, which was twice the size of our previous regular king size room in 4 th floor, windows facing the downtown Eureka Springs, absoloutely a stunning room. The breakfast was included in our price which was a nice suprise, but if you just want to have a nice cup of coffee with muffin, go downstairs to their newly build cavecoffee shop, it was great experience as well. Basin Park Hotel is one of the oldest hotel in the area, so do not expect anything modern, but that is exctly part of the charm in this place, so i would definately return to this hotel and tell everybody else to check it out too!

Room Tip: Take a superior king size room, you get so much room for your money

When we checked in, our room wasn't clean so they put us in room 307. It overlooked Basin Park. When we got to our room, it was dingy, small and the floor looked dirty, but the beds looked nice and clean. We had two double beds and there was no room for suitcases and no place to set things. We used the window sills and top of the air conditioner. Our TV remote didn't work.The floors are uneven, so when I would sit on the toilet, the seat would shift to the left. After I took my first shower, I had gotten dressed. did the make up and when I went to put on my socks, the bottom of my feet were black. The wash basin, which is outside of the bathroom was small, old and gross looking. I think we were given the worst room in the hotel. I didn't see one room this bad. The bellman and shuttle drivers were very friendly and helpful and restraunt had good food. The parking situation was very inconvenient. I wouldn't go back or recomend it. It makes the Days Inn look like the Taj Mahal.

Room Tip: If you go, don't accept room 307. Ask about the room they assign you to and if you are not satis...

when I booked this hotel I requested a haunted room....come to find out the room they put us in has never had any unexplained activity. I had requested to take some private time in some spaces that were supposed to be haunted and they could not accomodate me ....spending close to 1000.00 should have been accomodated to my requests.
