My dad and I spent night #2 of our Father and Son annual trip, at the 1905 Basin Park. Like the 1886 Crescent, the Basin was old but very very nice. Our room was very modern looking, considering the age of the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The price was a bit steep but it is smack dab in the middle of downtown Eureka Springs. As much as I do not want to complain, as a member of TripAdvisor, i have to be honest. The ghost tour was not a GHOST Tour. It was merely an hour and a half of the history of Eureka Springs. A few mentions of a ghost or two is how they justify it being called a ghost tour. The Crescent Hotel ghost tour was awesome and legit. So, if you want a real ghost tour, go with the Crescent and save your money and opt out of the Basin's version of a ghost tour. The only other warning about the Basin.....their parking lot is off site. You have to find it first and then call for a shuttle to come and pick you up. Tip the shuttle driver if you wish but the hotel will charge you 4 dollars on your bill for "service gratuity". I was a little surprised with this finding because i actually tipped the driver a 5 dollar bill.
