El Rancho

Historic hotel in Gallup

Opened in 1937, with a superb lobby resembling a rustic hunting lodge, Gallup's finest historic hotel quickly became known as the 'home of the movie stars.' Big, bright and decorated with eclectic Old West fashions, rooms are named after former guests including Humphrey Bogart and John Wayne. There’s also a good restaurant and bar, plus a cheaper, modern motel wing.
