This was a super cool stop on our road trip! The staff was really nice, rooms were clean and the town was adorable. We had steaks at the hotel's restaurant--SO DELICIOUS. Before hitting the road stop at the diner across the street!
If you like a little personality and history (not to mention old west charm) stay at this great hotel. It's located in an old fashioned small town square area. The staff is friendly and cheerful, and dining and shopping are nearby. I took off one star for some very minor annoyances, such as a little confusion at check in, a little room noise, cooking smells from the saloon and most importantly, a door to the room with a glass window and just a door knob lock. People concerned with security may not like this feature. But this is a small town and I felt perfectly safe. Otherwise, the room was clean, spacious and comfortable. My 6'0" son complained about the small shower, but I was fine.
The Occidental has been visited by many famous people. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid would ride to the Occidental from their hideout at the Hole-in-the-Wall. Some of the other famous people that dropped in were Buffalo Bill Cody, Calamity Jane, Theodore Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Owen Wister, author of 'The Virginian', and Ernest Hemingway.
what a great stop! Highly recommended for all especially with kids. We stopped here unexpectedly and we loved the hotel and staff! Much preferable than a generic chain hotel!
