It was a restless night as the booming Saturday evening parties down on Beale St. below did not wind up until around 4am. As sleep is not going to be a priority on most rallies, the competitors just keep on pushing the boat out. We made a mental note to always ask for another room if faced with jazz music etc. which can still be heard …

Our brethren back in Zhuhai, as well as brethren here in the U.S. have been asking me to make video sermons. So 2014 will see me begin to work on recording video sermons, though I must confess that I struggle to preach on camera.
I don't have full time work yet, and I think the 6 months off that I've had have been necessary. I needed time to seek the Lord, to set our house in proper order, ...
Our family stayed here for Christmas this year. The resort is just re-opening, and everything in the 9 cabins has been updated, refreshed and renewed! Each cabin had a unique theme. Can't wait to come back when the weather is better and do some hiking, fishing in the lakes and enjoy the valley more. It even snowed while we were there - perfect!
Well, it has been a really long time since I put up an update on here. I don't plan on quitting my updates since we returned back to the States, but life is a little bit different here and we don't necessarily ever just take our camera out with us to take pictures. But I plan on trying that sometime soon.
Weather here is kind of like in Zhuhai in the sense that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews 1905 Basin Park Hotel Eureka Springs
Basin Park Hotel Restaurant
Not very good food. Service was horrible. Check was twice what should've been paid. Do not recommend eating here.
A blast from the past with modern convenience
What a wonderful historic hotel. I and my wife stayed in room 102 and it was the most wonderful experience. We travel the country going from historic hotel to hotel. We were surprised to see a hotel of such standards in such a small town. Wow what an incredible building with unbelievable history. I have made plans to stop in Eureka Springs next time I get close and I know where I will be staying with out a doubt.... Thanks to the exemplary staff of the Basin Park Hotel...
My wife and I stayed here during the off-season between Christmas and New Year's Eve. Though the town of Eureka Springs was quiet, the hotel was busy with couples like us, here for the spa. The hotel is just over a century old, so rooms are quaint, but comfortable and large. Ours had a separate TV room (with a sofa, microwave, fridge, and table), a smallish main bedroom, and a large bathroom (with wonderful Jacuzzi!) The main bar/restaurant closed at 8:30 - perhaps just for the winter season? - which allowed us to experience the billiards room at the top floor, where a couple of poker and chess games were in full-swing. Certainly a livelier alternative to standard hotel bars! As with other hotels on our journey, the main downside was staff attitude - customer service seems to mean nothing! The driver that collected us from the distant car park and the front desk guy wore frowns and couldn't raise a smile between them. Is it too much to smile at customers and make them feel welcome? Or do we have to tip first? I thought one tips to reward good service, not to receive it in the first place.
We stayed at the Basin Park Hotel in June 2003. I only found out about the Trip Advisor site in 2005 but wanted to add my comments about the hotel.
We stayed at the Basin ParK Hotel once before when it was just beautiful. Our room was perfect and everything was spotless. Two years ago we returned and found that a change of ownership had taken over and it was disastrous. THe bed was filthy and so was the tub. The furniture was not antique just old and nothing worked including the kitchenette an old microwave and a nonworking fridge. Never again. I have since heard that it has gone further downhill even after the new owner has renovated it. Save your money and stay at one of the newer motels or at one of the B&Bs
In staying in Eureka Springs one night to investigate wedding plans for this fall, we stayed at the Basin Park Hotel a few weeks ago during the Eureka Springs off-season. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They were more than accommodating with their shuttle service.
A Grand View
I have stayed in two superior suites. Very roomy. Good effort at furnishing with period furniture. Rooms were clean and these suites have a great view of Spring Street, but would be better if they would clean the outside of the windows. I don't think they have been cleaned in years. The parking lot is about five blocks away, but the staff is helpful at arival and departture. You shouldn't need to go to your car very often if ever. I rate this hotel not for quality of rooms or service as much as Location, Location, Location. It's in the heart of downtown, on a trolley line, and there are at least a dozen restaurants within a few minutes walk. I WILL stay there again!

Quaint? Yes. Old? Yes. Overpriced? YES!!! My superior suite on the 5th floor was just below the billiards hall that closes at 2:00 a.m. I heard them through the ceiling all nite. Our suite has a very quaint slope to the floor causing the head of the bed to be several inches lower than the foot. This hotel was built in 1905 and it has be renovated but still has a long way to go. Great location in town. NO parking, painfully slow elevator. If you are not very finicky and just love old stuff for the atmosphere, this is your place. Otherwise, get a room at the Super 8. At least you'll get your moneys worth there.
No hustle or bustle
My husband and I stayed here and we were suprinsingly impressed the rooms are cozy and quaint, the staff is friendly, the parking is poor and the places to eat inside the hotel were okay, not alot of choices, but overall its a very nice place to visit.
I was shocked at the horrible bed. It fell apart with us in it. No room, sorry bath rooms, just bad. Air conditioning did not work properly. Just horrible, never stay there again.
