Quaint Inn to stay while visiting the Hot Springs. Rustic small rooms with very comfortable beds.Their restaurant is right down on the first floor for convenience with great food. The décor is right out of the past and I felt as if I were in an old time hotel right out of the 1800's.

Stayed here for a wedding, this inn was recommended by the bride and groom. We had to wait awhile to check in because the clerk was on a personal phone call. The next morning when we left our room the manager was standing outside our door waiting for us. He very sternly implied that we hadn't paid the night before...

I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations. For clarification the innkeeper was on her personal phone when you checked in. Our inn phone system, computer and credit card machine are all connected to the Internet.

It was a perfect day for me: after a good hike in the mountains we relaxed in a hot tub at the Hot Springs Resort, and then completed our day in the Iron Horse restaurant for dinner. The dinner was delicious, people, both waiters and customers, were friendly and seemed happy :-), and to top all that there was a...

I have backpacked into Hot Springs twice and stayed at the Iron Horse both times. The rooms are clean, beds comfy, the old building has a cool vibe, and the pricing is right in line with this type of level of hotel. The only issue I really had was the small size of the shower, but that is really rather...

My family and I visited Iron Horse restaurant over the Labor Day weekend and absolutely fell for it! It was a busy night but our wait was still short (only 15-20 minutes) and we were able to wait either bar-side or upstairs with complimentary coffee. The wait staff is amazing and the food was awesome! We were also entertained by...

We loved everything about our time at Iron House Station except the noise. The staff were on point and helpful, the restaurant was great and accommodating, the hotel is beautifully restored and comfortable but the noise was a game breaker for us. We will be back to the restaurant but don't think we'd stay again at the hotel. Again, it's...

Located within easy walking distance to the hot springs spa is this rustic gem. Step back into this old west saloon with rooms to rent upstairs. Modern amenities with b&b type feel. Remarkably good food with frequent local entertainment. NOTE: As its name implies, it is situated on a rr line and you will hear the train.

We ate here every night but one during our stay in Hot Springs. Food was plenty and very delicious. Staff was exceptional. We will miss this place. Not many places to eat in this town but Iron Horse was the go to place for us. Would highly recommend this place for dinner.

We had just parked our bike on the main drag and we're going to cut across the street when a men came up to us and said 'If you're looking for lunch, go around the corner to Iron Horse, their food is the best!' We took his suggestion and couldn't have been more pleased. EXCELLENT food, good prices, fast &...

We stayed here for one night while preparing for a hike. The hotel is unique and the staff couldn't be friendlier, however, the walls are not insulated enough to prevent guests from hearing even normal conversation in adjoining rooms. There was a white noise machine in our room but it was limited in the amount of time it would run...
