We normally stay at The Holland Hotel but we decided to try their sister property and save a few dollars. But, within minutes of arriving and checking into our room, we realized we were not going to be comfortable there for 4 nights. Don't get me wrong, the place is clean, the bed was comfortable, and front desk was friendly (more so at check-out) -- but just not the comfort we like. Fortunately, the hotel is owned by the same people that own The Holland so the GM was very gracious in letting us check out the next morning and move to a suite in The Holland. Now, back to The Maverick: Basically, an old motor lodge that has been tastefully renovated in a kitschy, southwestern fashion; it wasn't so much the size of our room, but the lack of comfortable lounging. Furnished with a king sized bed, a long, narrow bench at the end of the bed, a rustic-style, tall armoire that contained a small TV, the microwave and a small fridge, one club-type chair and a small writing nook with a wooden ladder-back chair. What made it uncomfortable for the two of us was that there was only one somewhat comfortable chair to sit in to watch TV and the TV did not face the bed. The room did not contain a luggage rack so our suitcases went on the floor or on the bench or the bed (but there was a large shelf with a rod beneath it for hanging clothes). The curtains on the window within a few feet from the bed also did not quite have enough coverage to give full privacy -- the curtain rod extends about six inches out from the wall so there were gaps on either end that could easily allow a view into our room when the curtains were drawn to close in the middle. Suggestions to management: 1) Add a small love seat or at least a second club chair so two people can watch TV comfortably; 2) Extend the curtain rod far enough on either side of the window and add an extra panel for full privacy; 3) add at least one folding luggage rack to hold a suitcase; and 4) add a small table for drinks, remote control, etc. If our room had had these, we very likely would have stayed all four nights. The grounds include a nice courtyard area with a fire pit as well as a sitting area just outside the breakfast room (say hello to St. Cowboy aka Jake!). I would still recommend The Maverick but I would caution to ask about the furnishings or size of the room before booking.
