Overpriced, bad food

San Diego, California

We were excited to be staying at this historic hotel. Booked a deluxe room but nothing about it was deluxe. Our toilet got stopped up twice. They could not fix it and they had to get a plumber. Our Room smelled because of it because waste was coming up. Ate at thei restaurant and it was horrible. All my food was cold, very cold. Had a drink in the bar and asked if they could make a lemon drop martini and the bartender definitely did not know what he was doing. Also there was a step up into the bathroom that you can really hurt yourself on in the middle of the night and I could go on and on. Would not recommend it . Carpet dirty.

Wonderful historic hotel and dining room

Aledo, Texas

What a wonderful, historic hotel. Love the charm of sitting on the front porch in rockers people-watching! Be sure and make dinner reservations in the dining room - great service and delicious food. Good bar, too, with a great outside porch. Wonderfully restored hotel and definitely nice to be near the south rim where the action is. Had a wonderful long weekend hiking with my husband.
