Lonely Planet review
El Paso's oldest continually operating hotel is also the only real downtown bargain. It probably hasn't changed a whole lot since John Dillinger stayed here in the 1930s (hint: room 221 is where the outlaw slept), but it has a certain ragtag charm.
The basic rooms are carpeted and fan-cooled only, but the lobby, with its leather armchairs and historical mementos, is a fine place to unwind.
