“25th Anniversary in Eureka Springs”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2007

We were eagerly anticipating celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in Eureka Springs and thought the Basin Park Hotel would be quaint and memorable. It was memorable, to say the least!

We rode the antiquated elevator (capacity 5) and it eventually arrived on the third floor. Thereafter we took the stairs which proved to be faster. The hallway was charming with the ceiling fans along the way. We thought the hotel had been completely redecorated, but our room was a mish-mash of a wide variety of styles from different periods in its 100 year old history. From a porcelein table, elaborate gold mirror and various other relics from a bygone past, it was not what we would call renovated. The bed was hard as a rock and slanted in one direction and the sheets felt like they'd been starched. Took forever to figure out how to get hot water out of the shower, also.

We ate dinner on the Balconey, listening to a wonderful singer/guitar player. It took around 45 minutes for my husband to get the salad and the steak arrived about 5 minutes later. My order never arrived because the kitchen (?) lost the order. I went downstairs and bought Peanut M&Ms from the desk clerk, and then headed to McDonalds. We were excited about the Starbucks /War Eagle coffee shop for breakfast. The blueberry muffin was wonderful, but my decaf coffee was cold, left over remnants from the previous day, so we ended up at McDonalds again for fresh coffee.

We will stay in one of the newer hotels in town on our next visit.

3rd trip to Eureka, first time to stay at the Basin Park Hotel. Location is excellent within easy walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Housekeeping, although busy, had not made it to our room by 3:30 in the afternoon. If you stay on the 5th floor be aware that parties on the 6th floor will keep you awake if you plan on trying to go to sleep before 11:00 PM. Bothe nites we were there it sounded like a bowling tournament was ocurring above us. At one point I thought fireworks were going off ourtside.
Room with Jaccuzzi was great. Corner tub looking out over Basin Park and the surrpounding area.
Don't count on the elevator working. It was sporadic throughout the weekend.

Basin Park is a nicely located historic hotel in Eureka Springs Arkansas.

While it is not elegant like its sister hotel The Crescent, it is very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and thought the "deal" on the Monday we arrived ($99.50 with two free massages in the spa thrown in) was great.

The room was clean, newly painted and very adequate.

Apparently there will be some rennovation and remodeling happening in the future. There is some room for improvement in items like carpeting in the lobby and other cosmetic items, but who cares if the room is clean and attractive.

Given the price and the fact that we weren't staying there for the "hotel-experience" but to see the town and environs, I would recommend this hotel.

If you like Italian food, we highly recommend "Emeril". Excellent!

We loved the downtown location. We enjoyed the fact that when we stepped outside we were in the middle of everything! The hotel was nice, our room comfortable. We had a couple of drinks on the 6th floor and played a couple of games of pool. Enjoyed the spa VERY MUCH. Overall had a wonderful stay. Would definately go back!
