We stayed here based on reviews on TripAdvisor and were very pleased.
Check in was easy and efficient. Our room was correct for what was reserved and faced the river as requested.
The room itself was much larger than more modern facilities. The furniture was nice and you could tell the room had been remodeled over the years. The bathroom was also large and had remodeled features. There were two sink areas in the room - one in the bathroom and one in the room which was handy.
The room had more furniture than normal hotels today. There was a desk area, table with two chairs near the sliding glass doors, a couple of plastic chairs with table on the small patio area outside the glass doors facing the river, unit holding the refrigerator and microwave, and another unit holding the TV with drawers.
The desk actually contained hotel branded stationary and envelopes - something you never find anymore.
An oddity leftover from an early time was the bathroom hairdryer. It is a wall unit that comes on when you disconnect the nozzle from the unit. It did work however the nozzle got too hot to hold before my hair was dry.
A highlight of the stay was breakfast. When you check in they give you breakfast tickets. In the morning you present your tickets to get admitted to the breakfast area. When you enter the chef greats you and passes you to the cook to take your order. They had a long list of items to pick from. We choose veggie omelets with potatoes and grits. They were cooked to order so you could choose your vegetables. They came with a fresh salsa on the side and were quite large. They also have a setup like traditional hotel chains with coffee, juice, pastries (looked homemade), etc. to add to your hot cooked entrees. They also had a great local melon served here that was perfectly ripe and sweet. There was also a juice option that was some kind of guava mix that was unusual and fun to drink. Seating options inside are limited and if they are busy you will likely share a table with other travelers. You can also sit out on the patio amongst the hummingbird feeders. We choose this option although it was little cold and enjoyed watching the hummers coming up to drink.
The chef was friendly and talked to the diners about the food and the area. From stories he was telling he and his family had lived in the area for some time. He definitely took pride in his establishment and the quality of the food.
We took a little walk around the grounds which are well kept and lovely in that desert area. They have fountains and waterfalls.
Couple of odd notes:
The doors on the rooms don't close automatically so make sure to close the door behind you.
We couldn't find an elevator in the building so if this is an issue for you make sure to get a room on the second floor as that is ground level to the parking lot.
I was very happy to have stayed at this hotel on our trip. It is something you don't find anymore when traveling. The people who run this hotel really care about the quality of the facility.
