We stopped at the Eklund because, like many folks heading for the Rockies, it's a great halfway-ish stop. We thought, how cool-- old west with charm. Our tween kids will love it! Not so much. First, the restaurant was seriously understaffed. It took forever to even beg for attention to get an appetizer order. We had to send back a... More

I knew i'd be tired from driving all day & still 3 hrs from home. Made reservations because i've never stayed there & wanted to experience this 19th century property. After 20 minutes waiting to check in, i finally got to my room. Indeed, it has a late 1800's feel & Victorian style. Simple place with a very good bed... More

We always enjoy a room on the second floor with access to the balcony. Love to read sitting on the balcony. We also enjoyed having wine before dinner on the patio. As usual, we appreciated the help and friendliness of the owners and the staff, and it is interesting to talk to them. This was a very busy evening for... More

This is a lovely old hotel with a wonderful history. If you ask the front desk, they can tell you all sorts of stories about Black Jack Ketchum (sp?) and the ghost of the hotel. The rooms have been remodeled fairly recently, however, it's still a historic hotel. We couldn't hear noises from other rooms but we could hear people... More

We didn't spend the night, but dinner was fine with alot of choices. The one problem we did have however was we were placed to eat in the saloon/ bar... More

We just stayed one night in a comfy room with a comfy queen bed in a beautiful old hotel with a nice bar and restaurant and would recommend to anyone. Friendly staff! Well kept and clean. The trains do go through town at night and can certainly be heard in your hotel room, but that probably goes with the territory... More

This hotel has lots of charm. A step back in time. It was remodeled to some degree a few years ago. My room was clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly. Easy to get too. Can't miss it since it's on main street. There is lots of local history to discover. The salon offers wonder meals. There is a... More

We were excited to stay here, but were disappointed once we got in the room. First, I noticed that the carpet had obviously not been vacuumed. I then noticed that the window sill and curtain were both dirty and dusty. The walls were in desperate need of another coat of paint or a good wiping down at least. I then... More

This hotel dates from 1892. It still retains the original saloon below, complete with a bullet hole in the tin ceiling. The saloon is friendly and surprisingly quiet on a weeknight, serving tasty comfort food. The hotel is very clean and the staff are wonderfully friendly and chatty. The rooms are spartan, and make you feel as though you have... More
