August Birthday Year 2: 2004

A travel blog entry by avie93309

We initially planned to camp in St. Barbara but had a change of heart after giving it more thought (none of us really know how to build a fire yet). We opted for a trip to Solvang instead, quiet and peaceful. Chat, Rose and Wilma (our non-August guest) took the Amtrak Train from SD. Paul dropped me off, and went back to the kids who were camping at …

This morning we ate breakfast at the Crystal Dining Room in the Crescent Hotel. Shortly after that, we went to the Eureka Springs downtown area by way of the Trolley to do some sightseeing. Downtown, there is a quaint little village of shops and some of the natural springs as well as the Crescent Hotel's sister hotel, The Basin Hotel. We left about …

Day 9 - Eureka Springs

This morning, we stopped at a Shell station in Van Buren to have the Jeep checked out and get the oil changed. They flushed the fuel injection to clean that out, thinking this was causing the sputtering on idle. We left there about 11:30AM and headed north. Most of this trip was at 15-20 MPH because the Crescent Hotel is situated in the Ozark …

According to both a park ranger and Wikipedia there really is no rhyme or reason to why some are "Battlefields," some are "Battlefield Parks," and some are "Military Parks." Brices Cross Roads is apparently the only one that is a "Battlefield ...

I toured a funky old house called Quigley's Castle - The Ozarks Strangest Dwelling. Built in 1942 Mrs Quigley designed the house so she could have tropical plants grow inside her house in the ground (soil). The plants reach the ceiling of the second floor & there is a definite ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa Eureka Springs

    Disappointed Would Be An Understatement

    from

    My husband and I attended a wedding in early November. Since the wedding was being held at the Crescent we decided to stay there. When I called for a reservation I was quoted a rate of $159 per night.

    Great Time

    from

    Just a short stay. Only one night. Stayed in the penthouse suite. This is a historic hotel that has been nicely redone. Everything about our stay was excellent. The staff were all very nice and the restaurant is worth going to even if you are not staying in the hotel.

    Ahhhh So Relaxing!!

    from

    I surprised my wife, and did not even tell her where we were going until we pulled up to the beautiful Cresent Hotel for our anniversary. We had a very relaxing trip and enjoyed all the attractions and shopping in Eureka Springs. This was our first time there. We would return to this secluded little town. I dont think that you would want to spend more than 3 days, any longer than that I dont think you would be able to enjoy it as much. This was a nice getaway. I made all the arrangements after looking online through there web site. This place looked awesome! So during check-in I got our room keys, our package certificates and went to our room to have a nice relaxing weekend..... I was so disappointed at this room (It was absolulty nothing like the photos on the website) This room was the smallest room I have ever been in. When you walk in there is a bed, dreeser,tv,and coffee maker. To the right of the room is two doors you open one door it is a closet, you open the other door it is the bathroom. I AM NOT KIDDING..The bathroom was so small, that when you sit on the toilet you have to put your feet into the bathtub it is that small..and I am only 5'6. The walls were painted pea green, no pictures what so ever. I requested a view of the gardens (Because it is really, really nice) well we looked out the window and saw some parts of the garden, but it was hard to enjoy it because you looked out onto the banquet room roof. I was on the 2nd floor in room 207 ( No ghosts there...did not see any nor anything close to it, I think it is just a tale, or maybe not..we did have the fire alarm go off around 10pm) and everyone had to evacuate the Hotel. That was pretty interesting. The Hotel staff did a great job making sure everyone got out. This was a false alarm. I had over heard someone say that someone pulled a fire alarm. Anyways we went to dinner and enjoyed our evening. The next morning we took the tram to the shops. While waiting for the tram to arrive at the Hotel, I decided to go talk to someone and "just let them know" how disappointed I truly was WITH THE ROOM, not anything else about the Hotel because this place was so beautiful, and truly was enjoyable other than the room. After explaining to the manager (Chuck) that I was very disappointed in the room for as much I was paying for this weekend it was not what I had expected, in a very polite way to him, I just asked if I could upgrade to a different room to enjoy our anniversary like I had thought I was going to get. (Due to Columbus Day weekend) availability was very slim to none. Chuck immediatly told me to go pack everything in your room and put everything onto your bed, go enjoy the rest of your day, and when you get back we will have everything done for you, there is nothing to worry about, I want my guests to be satisifed and I will do what ever I can do to give you a great weekend. I was very pleased and thanked him with a hand shake. I told my wife that we needed to go pack things up, ect and go have fun in Eureka Springs. Several hours later we returned, got our new room keys and went to our room......AAAHHHHH what a beautiful room with a awesome view. Chuck really did do what he said he would do, and he made sure that his guests were satisfied. We were able to relax in this suite, and enjoyed our anniversary. Thank you very much...You have to come see this unique place, but make sure that you do not stay in a regular room, other wise you will be very disappointed, make sure you reserve a room with lots of room and with the ammendities that you expect from a great hotel. You will absolutly fall in love with the surroundings, the spa, the carriage rides, all the way down to a relaxing cruise on the Beaver Dam. Enjoy your stay. I hope that this will help you make the right decision. Have fun in Eureka Springs!

    Loved our stay

    from

    My daughter and I stayed the night at the Crescent Hotel on Oct. 11, 2003, a birthday gift from my wonderful husband to me. I was a little nervous because I had read some of the past comments but I am happy to report that we LOVED OUR STAY AT THE HOTEL! The staff was great, the food was great and the hotel was what we expected it to be, full of charm and history. We did experience some weird happenings but nothing that scared us to make us want to leave. The weather cooperated and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend stay at this hotel. We hope to visit the hotel annually and stay overnight and include the spa package, which we did on this trip and that was most enjoyable and relaxing. Also, Eureka Springs is a great town and full of shops and restaurants, so remember a day is not enough to enjoy all of Eureka Springs.

    History, Atmosphere, Fright

    from

    Let's be honest, this is a hotel that is over 100 years old. It spent many years vacant with no upkeep. It is only to reason that it still needs lots of work. I felt like our stay was a great one. The room was not big, it had two double beds, a sofa, dresser, TV, and coffeemaker.

    Loved the crescent!

    from

    i was shocked to see some of the reviews!This hotel is a landmark and is a look into the past!maybe the rooms are not big, and maybe the restrooms are small,but the experince was wonderful!The employees where very nice and the food was great,not to mention the ghost tour!I will tell you now that the hotel does have spirits!we encountered them first hand (no lie) we stayed in room 316 and there is a lady spirit residing in that room.if there is a way to verifiy this let me know but she told me her last name was kincaide.i personally had a spirit strighten my necklace at the table over looking the pool.our son also experienced the tub stopper pop out of the tub and fly across the room while we were getting his bath drawn.I loved the experince but have to admit i got scared and dont know who long ill have to wait till i can spend the night there again.But highly recommend the ghost tour!

    Sorry, but true....

    from

    I hate to say it, but it's true. The rooms at this supposedly "elegant" hotel, are anything but. My step-son got married in Eureka Springs awhile back, and I arranged for he and his bride to stay there along with some of the rest of the wedding party. I thought my husband and I were giving the newlyweds a great gift. Well...I was wrong! The rooms were not at all what we expected. We went to knock on the newlywed's door and could hear our new daughter-in-law say what a disappointment it was to stay there. She was right, the walls are paper-thin, as are the doors. I know that the hotel is old, but if that's the best they can do, as far as restoration goes, then that is sad.

    Disappointed

    from

    My husband and I attended a wedding in Eureka Springs this weekend and stayed at the Crescent Hotel. While the website boasts of beautiful rooms, balconies, and spacious bathrooms - we found that the room was sub par compared to what we saw online. The room consisted of a bed, dresser, tv, and desk. The bathroom was 2 steps up and was so crowded that it was possible to bump your head on the sink while sitting on the toilet. There were no outlets in the bathroom and 2 that we hidden behind the bed and dresser in the room. One window opened out on the dumpster. Upon comparing our rooms with other guests we were sadly disappointed in what we received beased on the price we paid. Luxury Hotel, this was not!
