In all my excitment of googling,searching,reading,sharing,posting and listing my requirements like king size bed and jacuzzi, I was quickly reminded of something by reading an email that I recieved tonight and I would Like to share that email with you....
You and your husband picked a good month to get married. February is still the off season for us.
We bought this motel 3 years ago and have been trying to raise the bar with remodeling and new amenaties, while still keeping our prices low enough that you spend your money in Eureka Springs on memories, not lodging.
All of our jacuzzi rooms have a king size bed, a microwave, minifridge, electric fireplace (excellent mood setter), and of course the extra large 2 person tub, plus we finally got our wifi in.
We will also be glad to put our congratulations to you and your husband, on our lighted marquee.
This room rents for $60 per night plus Eureka's famous 13.75% lodging tax. total would be $68.25.
But the reputation we've built these last 3 years, is headlined by our exceptional hospitality, very clean rooms, and little suprises like our wedding and anniversary packages, which would be waiting in your room when you get here.
Even if you decide to stay with someone else, please stop by to say hi and look us over for future reference.
If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Since we're originally from Pawhuska we always enjoy visiting with fellow "Okies".
Hope to hear from you soon!
Cindy and Johnny"
Well my wonderful bloggy friends Cindy and Johnny from Carolyn's Ozark Swiss Inn got Customer service Cornered and they are funny and witty to boot...I can blog while on my anniversary trip and I always wanted my name in LIGHTS! they made me feel special and they genuinely would like for us to stay with them all the while they know I am considering other lodging options and still would like to meet us if we choose to stay somewhere else-NOW THAT'S CLASS!
I just wanted to share the email with you because reading that has me rethinking what makes a place...
Well it seems Twilight Terrace was the winner, so it will be added to the poll once I get through my list...in the Benton Place Inns defense-the pictures truly do NOT do this lovely property justice...we have stayed at the BPI before and I got a tour of the rooms and they are breath-taking...
Now I need you all to put TT out of your mind yes TIFF and Deb-that means you and help me narrow down these next 3.
I have to include some budget lodging in my list-just incase mr gp says "Do you want to shop OR spend $150 a night on a bed?" I GOTTA shop, for the beans AND for the lucky winner of this insane contest-
I should note, I promised mr gp that you all had his 'best' interests at heart-with some of the latest comments on the BIG bed and mood lighting and 'edward/twilight' references...
With that said my main requirements are that we have a jacuzzi & king size bed and these 3 deliver 100%
First we got Country Music Inn
They have a fantastic package-Ozark Relaxation - Three days and two nights in a Romantic suite. Your Ozark package includes two one hour massages or one couples massage, two trolley passes, candlelight dinner for two, carriage ride and commemorative photo. Price based on double occupancy, subject to availability and tax. $425
Located in the Attraction District with fantastic rates and a 5% discount to new customers plus secluded wooded view from the room windows, mr gp LOVES wooded views-I love that fireplace!
Swiss Village Inn
Has a couple +'s they have great rates,nice location, located right next to 'Quicker Liqour' (hehe that name still cracks me up) and Shawbee's Big Dawg Saloon-which is an awesome lil bar with Kareoke-of course I am merely a chair dancer But this place has a GREAT vibe
All you have to do is leave me a comment on which place you like and why-if you would like to explore the properties further just click on their names to read more about them. I will then enter your name for a very special gift from Eureka Springs-name will be drawn before I leave very special gift will be sent when I return home.
