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...

We received a gift certificate for a package in Hot Springs for Christmas. For several reasons it was August when we finally took advantage of the trip. What a nice hotel the Iron Horse Station is! The staff were most welcoming, gave us all the information we needed and after that - we did not see them- just the way...

When we checked in, the mgr wasn't overly happy to have us. The place is fascinating, our room was just OK.- needed cleaning around bottom of shower ( moldy ) and baseboards. Almost stepped on a big cockroach when I got out of bed the next morning. We left immediately. The restaurant was the highpoint. Our server was very personable...
