Union Square Guest Quarters2.5 out of 5.0

Three of us enjoyed staying in the centrally located Union Square Guest Quarters (there are several apartment like places scattered around the main part of town). Our unit had two comfortable bedrooms and one bath. The kitchen was well stocked with what you might need. There is an outdoor area on the unit we had. A good breakfast in a nicely appointed dining room adjoining an old railroad car. We really enjoyed the antique and other unique stores of El Dorado. Had a pretty fattening but good dinner at the Flying Burger. Would recommend.
Beautiful room at the top of MANY stairs, but it took me a while to locate it. I arrived after office hours and tried calling the number on the window of the office, but no one answered. I finally found the lock box for all the keys in a back alley. Then, in the dark, I walked around the town looking for my actual room. Eventually I went into a local bar and found someone to help me. :-) The breakfast was wonderful and the room was well stocked, but do not come here if you expect to be able to call the front desk.
I had a great experience staying at USGC! Everyone was very nice, and provided lots of information about the area as well as the history of the area. There is an old train car with a breakfast restaurant in it, which guests get to enjoy every morning from 7-9. The rooms are scattered throughout buildings for a couple of blocks, and there are paths around the property to get to different restaurants and stores. The locking door that leads up the 28 stairs to rooms 11-17 is on Jefferson street right between a health food store and a book store. Perfect!
My husband and I stayed here during the El Dorado Film Festival and had such a lovely time. Our room was huge, overlooked the square, and felt so homey (but still like we were on vacation!) In addition to that, the complementary breakfast was really good, and it's offered in an old train car, something else to add to the charm factor. Moral of the story: If you're ever going to be in El Dorado definitely stay here! (P.S. One day my husband and I wanted to do a little road trip and we couldn't get a rental car. Resulting in that, one of the lovely owners let us borrow her car! I mean, for that alone I'd give this place 10 stars!)
This is a centrally located, historic bed and breakfast. It's quite charming, and it had a nice set up. There were a few small issues that you should consider when booking, and perhaps the owners / management can improve on. -When I arrived, there was no one at the front desk, and needed to call to have him meet us. He was down in no time, so it wasn't a huge inconvenience, but it would be easy enough to provide that information in the confirmation email. -The room itself was nice, but the furniture was old (wicker) and stained, as were the top quilt and shams. Time for an update, especially considering the price of these rooms. -There was music until late that could be heard from downstairs- bring earplugs if it's a weekend night! -Also, the breakfast starts a bit late if you have an early start. These things aren't terrible, but again, for the price you pay for the rooms, could be accommodated for. It's an overall very charming place, and I would stay again, but I might try to choose a more updated and quieter room.
Room smells like an old, wet books and is above a bar and their sound system is right below the bed ... Writing this at 10pm with 2 more hours to go till it closes. Really happy to be paying $169 a night for this .... Stay away!!!!
We had a charming room over looking the square. The spacious room had everything we needed. Breakfast in the train car offered an elevated take on the continental breakfast with both cold and warm options. The check-in process with the key boxes was quick and convenient. The location offered the ability to walk to everything in the area. We would stay here again.
this was a lovely hotel. very personable and better than a traditional hotel. the rooms were large and clean and bathroom was modern. hardwood floors with huge tv and sitting room to enjoy after a hard day meeting schedule. good breakfast every morning where you can sit outside and enjoy the morning air. food was delicious the restaurant was an actual train car...very nice touch.
We stayed one night for our anniversary. The price seemed fair for what the room was, right downtown, two gorgeous balconies (our corner room was No. 10, just above the green awnings you see on this TripAdvisor page. Inside, pretty as a picture, extremely roomy and everything convenient and generous. Coffee, tea, super nice array of bathroom amenities, separate bathroom from vanity sink and a dressing table to boot. Person who let us check in early did so graciously, warmly and welcoming. No microwave or fridge but we didn't care. Pretty steep stairs up to our floor but we didn't care too much. Thing is the bed was not comfortable and 8 is late to begin serving breakfast so we skipped it. We really loved our sizable two-balcony room, autumn leaves reaching into one balcony, lovely. We loved the stained concrete floors and unusual rugs, the pretty sitting area, complete with magazines. Probably would return, maybe we'd just take a Tylenol p.m. to sleep better on old hard mattress.
This is the 3rd time I have stayed here over the last 10 years and have never been disappointed - well, maybe with breakfast. The last two occasions I have stayed in room 9. From the quaint manner of obtaining your key from a combination lock, up the rickety stairs, over rugs and between walls dawned with pictures, this place is charming. The room is very large, and comfortable with a sofas and armchair, free wifi, coffee. The old feel to the bathroom, particular the floor, just adds to the place. I will return
