Stayed for one night at the Stockyard Hotel as a weekend celebration and if you are looking for an authentic visit to the "Old West" this is the place to stay. Very small hotel decorated in western theme and lots of leather. Upon check in, you are given an actual room key (not the plastic swipe keys) I do think they could benefit from placing a key ring on the key itself, no telling how many of these have been lost. We stayed in the Outlaw room which was located at the end of the hall on the second floor. While the room was large, it was located on Main Street and was very noisy at night. The noise primarily was road noise from cars driving on the brick road and the sound of many motorcycles. There are two large windows however, they do have wooden shutters covering them which really makes the room dark however, I believe it may be an attempt to shut out some of the road noise. Bathroom could be updated but, was clean and sufficient. LARGE wooden armoire with built in closet housed the flat screen tv too . The benefit to staying here is the convenience to restaurants, rodeo, and several bars all located on the same street! Not to mention, the shopping of any western wear item you are looking for. For an upscale dining experience you must get reservations at Tim Love's Lonesome Dove. Excellent steaks and appetizers, the concierge was able to get us reservations later than the ones we were able to make on our own. Be sure and stop at the hotel bar and "saddle up" for a drink on the bar stools that are indeed saddles. Other must go to: White Elephant Saloon and Love Shack for live entertainment and great burgers!! For out of towners there is even a daily longhorn cattle drive.
