As you enter the hotel restaurant and bar, it feels like you've gone back in time to the 1800's. Lots of dark wood, dim lighting, flocked wallpaper, framed landscapes on the walls, white tablecloths. (It would be especially nice on a really hot day, I thought.) Service was friendly but very casual. I think this was because we were one...

This is a Hotel with a ton of history and potential... but as a Hotel today that's about all it does have. Unfortunately it is very run down, the rooms are bleak and the shower in our room was too questionable looking for me to use. On a positive note all the staff were very friendly. It would probably take...

We had a group of 24 people go to this hotel for an overnight stay on 9/24. We also planned dinner and breakfast there too. After dinner some of our group went into the bar where a live band played and at dinner we enjoyed wonderful accordion music. The large veranda on the front of the National was the perfect...

I made reservations a month ago for 2 suites. My hubby and I and another couple were coming up for our anniversary. Last night at 8:30 I got a call from a woman who said her manager asked her to call and cancel our reservations because they overbooked the rooms! Tell me HOW can you overbook a hotel with 40...

We stayed on 7/28/16. We knew it was historic but had no idea a place could show such lack of pride in ownership. The king room was large but overpriced at $100 due to the poor quality of the room. Rickety, unsafe stairs, dirty furniture, unkempt garden. The room was hot and you couldn't close the drapes for privacy without...

The good thing about this hotel is the price and the location. The rooms are old and badly need updating. The mattresses and pillows also need updating. The rules are weird. 1 usd for your room key deposit ( when was the last time you did that ). We stayed three nights and we never once had maid service although...

Historic hotel, expect historic features. Very interesting place to stay. Bed comfort was OK, not great. Room was extremely large with an eclectic collection of furnishings. Not the comfort of modern facilities, but with its own charm. I would recommend highly to someone who is in to historic hotels, which is not my favorite. I had a room near the...

The clerk at the front desk was extremely rude. She gave me directions four times on how to get to our room and I stil had no idea where to go. I was afraid to ask again. I ended up wandering around until a maid stopped us and gave us clearer directions. The room was not the one I had...

I can see why n Many people do not like this hotel but if you treat it as an interesting experience for a night it is a fun view into the old west. But some renovation would be good. We were welcome and loved the Jazz in the bar and the steak was good. We arrived very late but were...
