El Rancho Hotel, Gallup
Very Good8.0
El Rancho is a "classic". We stay there every time we visit Gallup. The magic of the history of the hotel surpasses its comfort......knowing that famous names of the past stayed there. The restaurant is nice, as is the bar area. Who can pass up a famous name jewelry store almost in the lobby? I will definitely stay there again.

Four Corners Tour
Great old hotel on Route 66 with a lot of history. The lobby, restaurant, & bar were amazing. Each room is named after a movie star, as it was popular with them in the early days. A good place to stay, but the rooms & baths could have been updated without losing the history of the place. Could also add a coffeepot in the room, but it was freely available in the lobby. Stayed in the John Wayne room. Bathroom was TINY! But we made it. Very convenient location to run out to Walgreen's or a quick shop at night. Had a good meal in the bar, watching the BCS Bowl game. A good traditional breakfast the next day in the restaurant. Would recomment it overall.

El Rancho - part of the past
Quiet room in general but the heater was VERY noisy when it turned on and woke me up about a dozen times overnight. Needs updating badly.

A lovingly preserved piece of history
This hotel is beautiful with lots of character. Room was small but perfectly clean & a super comfy bed!! The lobby is gorgeous, the staff is friendly & the food in the restaurant was delicious!
