If you enjoy anachronisms just a little off the beaten path, this is the place for you. Union about 20 minutes from highway 84, so the town has already been forgotten by time a little. The Union hotel was perfectly charming in all it's imperfection. We were greeted warmly but not over-enthusiastically by Rosie, the Old-English-Sheepdog/Receptionist. Rosie's assistant then checked us in and shared a little of the history of the place with us before we went to our room. Named The Clark Gable Room on the off chance that he may have stayed there while fishing local streams, it was decorated with a combination of old sportsman gear and Clark Gable movie posters. My partner and I also noticed the room smelled like our grandparents' homes and was as quaint and comfortable and our memories of visiting them as children. We enjoyed exploring all the eccentricities of the space. The deep pile carpet and obviously older mattress activated my bed-bug paranoia just a tad, so we took a few extra precautions.
DO NOT book at this hotel if you prioritize modern convenience and luxury.
DO book at this hotel if you have nostalgia for small towns, warm welcomes, and the comforts of Grandma's spare bedroom.
