Ever since I stayed at a B&B in Madison, Wisconsin that had a jacuzzi I usually pass on any place with a jacuzzi. The jacuzzi broke and when I tried to fix it I pulled out handfuls of other peoples hair. So I always pass.
I was visiting my sister in Dallas and told them I was planning to drive to Bentonville, AR the next day, my wife's husband pulled out his atlas and mentioned that Eureka Springs was close by. On the map it looked like 15 miles, in reality it was closer to 60 miles, with steep declines and zig-zag roads. Do not attempt to drive at night.
Anyway We got there very interesting place, half the town was closed for the season or out of business, but the other half something mysterious. Anyway we were tired and the first place we saw was The Grand Central Hotel. The wife booked and the price was reasonable.
Walked into a hotel and was impressed by the charm and beauty. Carried my bag upstairs not an easy task got to the room and sat down. The room looked authentic sans the TV, noticed a kitchenette and then the bathroom and the dreaded jacuzzi. Some places don't need a TV, kitchenette or a jacuzzi and this is one of them.
Had a good meal downstairs steaks could have been warmer. The place was noisy lots of people returning from bars and being a bit too noisy. The sheets were thin with an equally thin blanket, it got cold at night and then the jacuzzi. Too large for a couple and it looked like it had been used a lot.
Anyway left the hotel in the morning and on the way out of town saw that every place advertised a jacuzzi and then I remembered it was close to U of Arkansas. Aren't Razorbacks hairy?
