This is exactly the sort of quirky place that me and my wife love. We'd booked the train trip to the Grand Canyon and were looking for somewhere friendly and charming to stay within walking distance of the railway. Step forward Red Garter. Angie was the lady that checked us in and she was amazing. She gave us a brilliant 10 minute history of the inn, which used to be a saloon and a brothel and explained what used to go on in various parts of it! It was great fun. She also had fantastic advice re local eateries and explained the best way for us to get the most out of our Grand Canyon trip. We also met John the owner and he was equally friendly. The room was awesome although some may need a stepladder to get on the bed! It was ridiculously high but it all added to the quirky charm. Breakfast was coffee, juice, fruit and pastries - that might not sound much....until you see the most amazing pastries ever. The cinnamon rolls were incredible. The shop part of the inn is great too, but be careful you could spend a fortune! Altogether a fantastic choice. Why would anyone stay in the huge hotel by the station when they can have this?
