Give this a try--you can always stay at a chain
This was on my way during a long 9 day road trip and it was easily the best one!! I like to stay at local hotels IF the reviews are good. This is a neat place! It is old, rustic and just cool. If you need a Marriot this is not your place--you'll need to drive another 100 miles. Read the property description. The hotel has 3 floors. You use a key to get into your room. The stairs squeak as you go up and down but it is quiet. It's just like being in an "old, rustic, western" hotel. The rooms are not fancy. They are like an old western hotel--there wasn't much in them, not even a bathroom so this is a bonus having your own bathroom! Bed was comfy. Room was clean and everything worked. I chose this place because of reviews and the onsite bar and grill. I was unable to experience the bar and grill because of COVID-19. They were unable to provide a continental breakfast but the owner gave me the option to pick off a menu and they would make it for me. Who would do that?!!! That is customer service!!! The only drawback is the train that came thru during the night. It's not the hotels fault but I did want to put that out there. But not problem getting right back to sleep. If I am in the area or this is on my way, I would definitely stay again.

Welcome to the old west!
Beautiful, classic, old west hotel, incredible built in wood work. I expected to see Miss Kitty come down the stairs at any moment. Lovely place and wonderful people!

Great trip back in time.
This is a wonderful historic hotel filled with antiques, friendly staff and history. The hotel/restaurant and bar are a true throwback to the 1800’s and a great place to stay. We throughly enjoyed our stay there.
