Through the years I have been going to the Argintine grill for an escape and good food. This past labor day weekend I was sadly disappointed. Our chicken breading was burned and my salmon was swimming in balsamic sauce that killed any flavor the dish might have had. Our wine was served in inferior glasses which for me takes away... More

I've been making an annual pilgrimage from Texas to Rico for many years, first on backpacking trips and now that I am aged, staying in the Rico Hotel. Yes, it's the only hotel in town and it is historic and rustic but it is clean and comfortable. Some of the rooms are smaller than others but the rates are cheap.... More

Like a quaint bed and breakfast. Comfy rooms. Manager also an amazing chef for the restaurant next door, Argintine Grill. The included breakfast was glorious! We really enjoyed ourselves and wished we could stay longer.

The third floor Kinnick Suite is spacious, bedroom, living room, full kitchen, bathroom and many closets. The food is excellent! Chef prepared dinners, 4-6pm were only $15. We wanted to try the homemade ice cream but the restaurant was too busy for the one and only server/bartender to get back to our table. Complimentary breakfast consisted of a variety of... More

The restaurant is amazing! If you stay here, eating dinner at The Argentine Grill is an absolute must. The filet is to die for.... The rooms are small, but they are cozy and clean, and the sign on the back of the hotel says it was established as a miners bunkhouse in 1925, which adds to the rustic mountain experience.... More

The location is great but do not get a room downstairs. The hotel is very old and the floors creak real loud when people are walking. I asked to be moved to a quieter room and he wanted to charge me more to be moved upstairs. The room was hot June 30th so we had to open the windows, no... More

We did not book ahead but noticed the hotel as we drove through town. The hotel was not full and we did not have that tiny room others mention. We had no problems with noise, though we thought we might, it being an older building. Our room was very nicely decorated and clean. The restaurant was outstanding, as good as... More

I was really looking forward to staying at this hotel, it sounded like it would be a really interesting place. The food at the Argentine Grill was good, but the service was lacking for sure. The hotel was terrible, the rooms are very small, smaller then a room in a camper! The bathroom door could not open with out hitting... More

Horrible service...we had to wander the hotel and go in to the restaurant to find someone to check us in. We had booked the room online, but had to pay extra for 2 children, even though it was not stated before, and we were using the same area, no cots, etc. Heard everyone that wandered in late from inside and...

Note: The electricity had been out earlier in the day which may have affected some of the things below and we didn't have a prior reservation. We saw this along the road after a long drive and got the last room. It was definitely cozy, like being on a cruise ship (not much larger than the queen bed in the... More
