Hot Springs Funkiness -- It's a Good Thing
Posted Oct 22, 2014 on Hotels
This was our second stay at the B, and it won't be our last. We like it. It isn't a brand new hotel with sparkling amenities, though, so if that's your thing, stay somewhere else. If you like a place that's got some history and is a little bit run down -- a patina, if you will -- but still perfectly serviceable and for a good price, you might dig the B. We almost never go anywhere to enjoy the HOTEL when we travel, we go to enjoy the place the hotel is located. So as long as the hotel is clean and the bed is comfy and the shower is hot, I'm happy. Our bed was huge and cozy, water was piping hot, and there was a little kitchenette in the room so if we'd wanted to stay longer and get really budget-y, we could have eaten some cold meals there. It's true that there's an abandoned hotel across the street in the process of being demolished, but it wasn't in progress, and I guess I find that sort of thing interesting so it didn't bother me. Part of a revitalization effort. The B is close enough to walk to the bath houses and restaurants downtown, as long as you're a person who enjoys walking a few blocks, which I do.
