My daughter and I were driving from TEXAS to Colorado. We didn't know where we would end up for the night, so booked last minute. Even though it was late when we arrived and we had neglected to mention we had a dog when we booked, they were very pleasant and understanding. The following morning, I started asking questions about...

If you love old hotels, this is a step back into the past. The rooms are large and spotless, the staff friendly and the lobby filled with antiques and pictures of the hotel's past. There is a bar with some craft beers on tap. There is also a nice, and very popular, restaurant. The food is not particularly upscale, but...

I've stayed here several times on road trips and it's always been pleasant. The staff is friendly, the rooms are very neat and clean. It's an old hotel but has been carefully restored. Beds are comfortable and the continental breakfast is above average. Prices are very reasonable too. Theres a nice coffee shop just a block away that serves excellent...

Fine food and drinks in elegant dining room or cowboy bar. Excellent craft beers on tap. Friendly staff and customers. Beautiful 3-story atrium staircase and elevator. Quirky but charming rooms require ear plugs (available on check-in) for sleeping due to all night traffic and several trains with prolonged loud whistles. Expect some joy and discomfort in this 1890s Wild West...

We arrived at this beautiful hotel about 8:00pm and were assigned a room on the 3rd floor. No problems since there in an elevator. The room was frigid, but since we didn't have reservations we turned on the heater and headed back down to the gorgeous entry and started to go into the "saloon" to have a drink while our...

We had driven from Salina, Kansas heading to CA. We debated going on to Santa Fe but researched on Trip Advisor to see our options should a stop be wanted. Only a few hotels after Clayton to Las Vegas, New Mexico. As we drove past the Eklund in Clayton we decided to stop and check it out. Jeanette our hostess...

We had heard of Clayton because the Ports to Plains Highway corridor goes through town and a lot of travelers from Texas go through Clayton on the way to Colorado. It is a very interesting place that has the feeling that time has stood still. There are a lot of vacant buildings but a lot of promise. The Hotel Eklund...

My hubby and I stayed at the Eklund Hotel on our way to Taos last week. We loved the vintage vibe of this place and all the history surrounding it. JoBeth, the owner, was very cordial and interesting to visit with. I had left some items behind and they saved them for me so that I could get them when...

This historic hotel was built in 1892 and still retains its frontier era atmosphere with its decor and the iron beds in the rooms are a great touch. The hotel reopened roughly 10 to 12 years ago after having been closed for business for quite some time. Everything was extensively remodeled. The rooms were very clean and everything was meant...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Ekland while traveling from Texas to Colorado. During our travels Clayton, New Mexico was a 10-hour drive for us, so arriving at Hotel Ekland was a great retreat after being in the car for so long. Joe Betty is a wonderful and very nice lady who got us all taken care of at the...
