We stayed here one night in May, and had a great time. It's a bit like staying in a museum. Take the time to wander the halls, and look at ALL the public rooms, and memorabilia. There is nothing else to do in Winslow except the famous corner, but the hotel itself has plenty to keep one occupied for several hours.
If you have the time watch the constantly running DVDs in a few of the common rooms that explain the hotel and the renovation process. It's fascinating. Sit out by the train lines and watch the trains go by; you won't have to wait long as trains rumble by every 7-15 minutes, and that's all night long.
We asked for a quiet room (knowing about the trains in advance) and we stayed in the Clark Gable room which is about as far away from the trains as you can get. We could still hear the trains at night but not in a way that kept us awake.
We ate dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed it but didn't think it was anything special. (The signature soup and squash blossom appetizer were great). However, breakfast was outstanding. Don't miss it.
For the price (we paid about $110) this place is a quirky, amazing little adventure.
