    Warning!

    by

    I was excited to stay in an historic hotel on my first trip to Eureka Springs. Everyone was so hospitable & I enjoyed the spa services. Midway through my stay, I realized my flat iron was missing, but thought I may have forgotten to pack it (I found out later that I did indeed pack it but it went missing at the hotel). After staying two nights, I packed up to drive back to TX only to realize that I'd left my hang-up garments in the room closet - I had 2 pr of jeans, 3 tops all zipped up inside a new jacket. I called the hotel & was told they would be sent to my home. A few days later the box arrived & I opened it only to realize I was send 2 pr jeans & 2 tops...that leaves 1 top, 1 jacket & of course the flatiron still missing. I've tried & tried to get the items returned or be reimbursed to no avail. :o( Sure puts a damper on an otherwise great stay.

    Icon In the Middle of Town

    by

    We did not stay here, but got a sample of the facility and amenities for a possible future time. It is still intact like it looked form early 1900's. It was built in 1905. In 1926, politician and wealthy Claude Fuller bought the hotel. It has been in and out of family ownership since then. In the 1920-50's there was some element of gambling and crime figures hanging around.

    Unique Quality: It is an eight story hotel carved out of limestone rock, and right next to the more famous spring of the area; BAsin spring. Purchased in 1997 by Roenigk couple, they upgraded to old splendor. They also own the Cresent, and War Eagle Mill. Promo for War Eagle flour and products exude. A cave in the corner lobby toward the back is for quiet intimate dining. Now at 103 years, it still reins.
    Prices off season range about $120 for single to $220 luxury, and in season about $170-350

    Downtown historic hotel

    by

    A sister hotel of The Crescent Hotel and Spa, 1905 Basin Park Hotel is located at Spring Street with all the convenience of shopping and dining at your doorstep.

    Only drawback here is that there is no street parking in front of the hotel.

    Unique Quality: Great location

    In 2005 Celeabrating 100 Years At...

    When you book at the 1905 Basin Park Hotel, you are give specific Arrival Procedures which that before you park, you should pull in to the yello loading zone curb; hold car at curb and go inside the lobby to register, return to car and unload with optional use of bell staff, tak luggage to guest room [you have 10 minutes at the loading zone], return to car and proceed to parking are or follow shuttle van who brings you back to hotel.

    Their parking is free [an added bonus]; their location is outstanding [busy Spring Street]; their accommodations are unique; and they offer 3 places to eat.

    However, I was disappointed in the places to eat and the "shabby" look of some of the public places in the hotel. The Balcony Restaurant was especially dingy and almost to the point of being dirty. But, you are able to view the activity on the historic downtown. The Eureka Coffee Company and Cafe provides Starbucks Coffee or specialty drinks such as Latte, Cappuccino, Mocha, Espresso, Macchiato, Americano, and Fruit Smoothies. They also sell fresh-baked pastries, bagel-n-lox, and biscuits-n-gravy.

    Unique Quality: The hotel also has Spa services at Serenity Spa. They have full body massages, Hote Stone massages, Exfoliating Body Wraps, mini or full facials.

    The hotel offers packages and specials such as:

    Romance Special for Couples or Friends Packages

    These Specials are usually for two nights, and depended on the one you select, they range from
    $339.00-$439 plus taxes.

    All room in the hotel offer free parking, turndown service, Crescent pool, Holiday Island Golf, Tennis and Pool, and the New Moon Spa reciprocal privileges.

    They have Jacuzzi suites, which couples seem to enjoy. There is a Sunroom Suite with a king bedrrom, parlor, wet bar and Jacuzzi tub in the room. It serves as the hotel's honeymoon suite and has a wonderful view.

    The Spa Suite is for people don't want to leave the hotel, but prefer to experience total relaxation and pampering of the suite, the pool, sun deck, and therapies of the Serenity Spa.

    My favorite is the JOE PARKHILL SUITE in memory of Parkhill who ran the property from 1940-1955 and brought in "such guests as pretty Boy Floyd, Miss Capone " and other notorious characters. The suite has SLOT MACHINES, a featherbed, Whirlpool tub, and a balcony overlooking the lobby.

    Other available rooms are: Standar Jacuzzi, Superior King, King Room, and Double Room.

    I think that the outside architecture of the Basin Hotel is the most beautiful in all of Eureka Springs. I just wish they would maintain the public areas more.

    Day Spas in Eureka Springs

    by

    Our room was part of the Spa Suites that was newly remodeled and very nice. The best part was it was two doors down from where we received our massage. We could put on sweats and flip flops and walk 20 feet to go back to bed after our massages.

    If you go during the mid-week, their spa packages are very affordable.

    Unique Quality: There isn't much to do after dark in Eureka Springs, but the Basin Park has a really nifty bar on the top floor. It used to be a speakeasy during prohibition and it retains that same charm. It's not a meat-market style club; but rather an old-world looking pub with hardwood floors, killer martinis, and pool tables.

    Historic Haunted Hotel in Eureka Springs

    by

    The 1905 Basin Park Hotel is located in downtown Eureka Springs. It's been around now for 100 years and the hotel is supposedly haunted. Check out this website to read about it...

    http://www.basinpark.com/cgi-bin/fullnews.cgi?newsid1026617198,49128,

    Unique Quality: The hotel has a restaurant, a coffee shop, and a bar with pool tables at the top of the hotel. Hotel guests can use the swimming pool at the Crescent Hotel.

    The restaurant on the balcony was great. Make sure you go to watch the sunset. We shared appetizers and dessert, both were great. The staff was very friendly as well.

    At the Root of Eureka Springs

    by

    Basin Park Hotel sits almost upon the very springs that give this historic town its name (i.e. properly speaking, its former name). From the hotel: "Bellman service and guarantee parking meet your arrival. Jacuzzi suites to family accommodations serve as your shelter and turndown service and 24 hour front desk cater to your needs. Enjoy breakfast and lunch in our new Basin Bagel & Deli (and be sure to have a seat in 'the cave') and enjoy lunch, dinner and your favorite beverage as you overlook the heart of historic downtown from The Balcony Bar & Restaurant."

Basin Park Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member ktodd

The Basin Park Hotel was very accomodating. We were running late for a wedding and they made sure our luggage and vehicle was taken care of and that we didn't miss our shuttle. Every staff member I encountered was extremely nice and helpful. The room was extrememly large and very charming. A little spooky, but charming.

Cosmopolite on the Frontier

by mrclay2000 about Flatiron Flats

If the Basin Park Hotel is too much for your budget, you can try the slightly-less expensive Flat Iron Hotel across the street. Its the junior accommodation in town (rebuilt in the 1980s), but its appearance and location are highly coveted. Rooms are limited, but guests are "pampered." From the hotel: "Our guests are greeted with a gracious wine, fruit and cheese basket to help you settle in and enjoy the comforts only a Victorian village can offer. Hand made Amish quilts wrap around you as you fall into a gigantic king size bed." "Complimentary soft drinks are chilling in the refrigerator for you to enjoy after a day of shopping or sight-seeing. Chocolates are beside the bed, and bath-salts are beside the Jacuzzi for two, so relax and de-stress."

Eureka Springs' Hotels & Motels

by Kiisu

In Eureka Springs there are lots of B&B's, cottages, motels, and a few campgrounds to stay at. For hotels/motels, I recommend the historical Crescent Hotel (www.crescent-hotel.com - ask for the haunted room if you dare) or Basin Park Hotel (www.basinpark.com) for the atmosphere. Best Western Inn of the Ozarks (www.InnoftheOzarks.com), versus the other 2 Best Westerns in town, is the best regular motel with the main convention center in town. Flatiron Flats, while expensive, is in the heart of the historic district and in my favorite historic building (www.eureka-net.com/flatiron/). But I must admit I normally find a cheap motel to stay in (I'm a tightwad but I don't like camping). There are several websites to check out, including www.eurekasprings.org or www.eurekaspringschamber.com . The cleanest motel I've stayed at is Apple Blossom Inn ph#501-253-5552. Dogwood Inn, ph#800-544-1884, Thurman's Lodge, ph#888-349-7626, and Ozark Swiss Inn, ph#800-833-8450, are cheap and your basic motel room. Don't stay at Mount Joy Motel, the rooms smell bad. Log Cabin Inn is only 3 blocks away from downtown, but it's straight downhill which means a steep uphill climb when it's time to sleep! And realize room rates fluctuate dramatically from week to week, depending on what event is taking place in town.

A Great Place to Stay in Eureka Springs, Arkansas

by TripAdvisor Member rbeilhardt

We've stayed in Eureka Springs many times, but this was our first stay at the Basin Park Hotel. You can check out the history of it on the web pages noted above; it's conveniently located right in the middle of all the shops in the historic district of Eureka Springs; the room we had was huge with a king-sized bed; staff was very friendly; valet parking is recommended; it's a no smoking hotel, however, on the 6th floor there's a bar where you can smoke, drink and watch your favorite sporting event. And they sell cigars. You can also sit on the balcony and enjoy some great eats.

The Serenity Spa was awesome!

The hotel also provides a shuttle to take you to various places in the downtown area, including its sister hotel, the Crescent Hotel, where you can catch a carriage ride from either Jerry or Aida, a lovely elderly couple who do this for the fun of it.

Personally, we're already looking forward to our next trip to Eureka Springs and another enjoyable stay at the Basin Park Hotel!
