We loved the atmosphere of the hotel and everything else. What we disliked was not having convenient outlets and the pillows were way too hard.

Loved the historical aspect of it

stay was fine, on-site restaurant leaves a lot to be desired in terms of service and quality of food.

I loved the history of the property and got a room in the original historic situation which is recommended.

A classic and friendly stay every time I come through Gallup, two thumbs up!

Renovations in progress so you're never sure what you'll find but I love this place!

Super friendly staff at both the hotel and the restaurant. Bathrooms are pretty tight, and the fan vents need cleaning. It's a cool old hotel.

I loved the history. I was charmed by our room and the use of the tub. Shower wouldn't start and walking around property was somewhat chaotic

Yhis historic hotel is worth the visit

Unfortunately it was very disappointing. The room was considered a deluxe, not sure why? The patio/windows opened up to the roof top , which all you could see was cracked walls, rusty air conditioner and trash at the side of the building. The room itself was dark, with worn out carpet (possibly original, from the 30’s). The bathroom looked to be remodeled, which was probably the best feature. So sad to see this iconic hotel so run down, the front entrance is about the only part that has been somewhat preserved

An absolute gem! A great little Historic spot that is clean & comfy. Can’t wait to return.

Historical museum with hundreds of famous people photos and memorabilia. Fun to explore. Restaurant just OK food but margaritas delicious.

Great if you like historic hotels. Good price too! But don't expect Holiday Inn. Good beds. Would go again.
