We stayed at the Basin Park Hotel in Eureka Springs during Volkswagen Weekend and really enjoyed the downtown access and Basin Park area just next door.
Our room number was 315 a “Jacuzzi Suite” and the Jacuzzi was nice after a long day! Our room was clean, and the AC worked great to cool off as it was very hot weekend.
Like other reviews have mentioned parking is a little awkward in that it is quite a distance from the hotel, however this was fine for us as we enjoyed the walking. If you prefer, the hotel has a shuttle van that will pick you up at the parking lot and take you back when needed.
We parked our car Friday night and didn’t even need in until we left on Sunday since everything is within walking distance to the shopping and entertainment. The only thing I would stress is that the parking lot is Gravel and is very dusty, so if you just washed your car, plan on another wash up.
Basin Park Hotel is an old historic hotel so the walls and floors, are a little noisy, but hey that’s part of what to expect in an old hotel. The staff was very friendly, the bellman was polite, and the hotel has a nice restaurant on the 1st floor that was fun to watch the crowd & VW’s below.
I would recommend this hotel, and add that you should find out if your room has a nice view as well. Our room was in the rear of the hotel and did not have a view…other than of the roof of the building next door and the rocks in back.
I also would recommend the stairs as the elevator is slow and HOT! The stairs are easy and short and sometimes just as fast.
One other note is to checkout the local guides to see what is happening in town, or online before you go, we were pleasantly surprised to find a great little concert in the Basin Park by a local artist Mountain Sprout and really enjoyed the show only steps away from the hotel.
