My husband and I stayed at the Strater for the first time. It's a quaint, old west hotel with a lot of charm. Our reservationist (in training) was very pleasant and checked us in prior to check-in time.
The guest rooms are small but to be expected for an older property. The bed was very hard and the pillows were very flat, not supportive at all. The bathroom was extremely small but the water pressure was great and it didn't take long for it to heat up. We spent most of our time out and about in town so the overall room met it's purpose.
We tried the Diamond Belle saloon out right away; the staff was very accommodating. They host several local brews on tap, a vast selection of cocktails and a great menu. The two days we stayed, the saloon hosted local musicians as well.
