We loved the Hotel Ecklund! Very clean and charming. The staff were very relaxed and friendly. Our room opened to the main street balcony, which was a great place to enjoy a glass of wine. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant, and were very happy with our choices. Complimentary breakfast was homemade quiche, homemade oatmeal, and homemade cinnamon rolls....

A restaurant in a hotel and short staffed. They did not have a place to sign in when you arrived and some people tried to sit at empty tables before others who were waiting. Food was ok and drinks were generous. I would eat here again. So busy that we sat with another couple!

The rooms and bathrooms were a good size and had simple furnishings. However, there was a large section of our floor that creaked REALLY loudly. Also, you could hear everything from guests next door, above you, outside, or down the hallway. But that's the price you pay when you stay at an old hotel. Otherwise, the saloon and breakfast room...

We tried to cancel our reservation so we could drive a little further toward Colorado, but you can't cancel less than 24 hours. We were SOOO glad! Our stay at the Eklund was a delight! Enjoyed chatting with the staff and other travelers. We will stop here again!

We stopped here midway from our destination. Love the charming hotel and JoBeth was very nice and informative. The beds were comfortable and clean. I do wonder how they keep the white tile in the bathroom so bright?! Trains may keep you up if you are a light sleeper...I only heard them once, but hubby heard them several times. We...

This was our second stay at the Eklund. This visit we got into our room and the window would not shut so my husband crawled thru the window and pushed it closed and had our grandson lock it from inside, therefore he then had to climb down some type of sevice ladder outdoors to get down. Then we went down...

Bad all around. Did not enjoy. Too expensive for what you get . Only stayed because it was late and we were tired. Got up real early just to get out of there. Would never stay there again, how many ways do you want me to say BAD?

Always wanted to stay here and finally had the opportunity. Don't expect top of line amenities but was a comfortable stay in an simple room with great AC. The floor in our room sloped due to age of building and creaked with every step. We parked our motorcycles right in front of the hotel and felt very safe there. Legend...

We stopped at the Eklund because, like many folks heading for the Rockies, it's a great halfway-ish stop. We thought, how cool-- old west with charm. Our tween kids will love it! Not so much. First, the restaurant was seriously understaffed. It took forever to even beg for attention to get an appetizer order. We had to send back a...

I knew i'd be tired from driving all day & still 3 hrs from home. Made reservations because i've never stayed there & wanted to experience this 19th century property. After 20 minutes waiting to check in, i finally got to my room. Indeed, it has a late 1800's feel & Victorian style. Simple place with a very good bed...
