The atmosphere was fun. It was western and had been updated well. The room was cute if a little on the small side, but to be expected with an older hotel that's been updated. The room and the bathroom were both meticulously clean and cute. The bed was pretty hard, but given that is my biggest complaint I would for sure use it again.
The Eklund hotel was built in 1892 and restored in 2004. All of the century-old charm remains - including bullet holes in the saloon ceiling from its Wild West days. The staff is amazing - friendly, helpful, and filled with enchanting stories of the hotel's early years. The restaurant/saloon had delicious food and fun ambience. The breakfast is limited; however, it is lovingly homemade and delicious. 15 minutes from Clayton Lake State Park, a gorgeous 1/4 mile hike to see dinosaur footprints. 40 minutes to Capulin Volcano I hate mentioning any negatives since we had such a lovely stay in such a unique hotel. - the rooms are quaint and do not include the typical hotel extras (coffee maker, refrigerator) - we did not mind the sound, but rooms overlooking the train rails will hear intermittent whistles throughout the night
The room we stayed in (118) smelled like smoke but was supposed to be non smoking?
We stayed in room 125. After trying for 45 minutes to use the WiFi, we gave up. At first the WiFi did not show up. When it did finally show up, it was terribly slow. When we did finally get on the WiFi and try to use it, we were kicked off due to poor reception. We tried on two phones and an iPad. We noticed some masked odor, like it was once a smoking room and now wasn't.
