We wanted the American Wild West experience and we got it. The hotel is extremely well done and great care has been taken to make it a really authentic looking Western town with themed rooms - we stayed in the blacksmith- themed room which was really well done with great attention to detail and a beautiful murale on the back wall. The rooms contain all the modern conveniences and are cozy. However, despite several attempts, we couldn't get the coffee machine to work properly.
Another tip - keep the door closed because, due to the remote location of the hotel in the desert there are plenty of critters you don't want making their way into the room!
We didn't have the time, but if you do I recommend you go for a horseride - all levels are catered for and the surrounding scenery is stunning.
The only slightly negative thing I can say about the hotel is that the receptionist was rather curt, not very welcoming and pushy about trying to sell us horserides and meals. She seemed determined on getting us to have dinner and breakfast at the ranch which we weren't particularly interested in and kept on emphasising the fact that we had only booked a standard room which is all we wanted seeing as it is already a pretty pricey room and didn't want to blow our budget as it was only the beginning of our 3 week trip.
Nevertheless, the ranch and nearby Tombstone will remain a fond memory for us.
