The historic El Rancho Hotel provides a unique Southwest Experience.  The El Rancho Hotel was a home away from home for movie stars throughout the 1930s to 1940s who filmed Westerns in the area. Rates are competitive with the big-name motels in the area. The 49er Lounge in the El Rancho was listed as one of the Top 50 bars in the USA by Esquire Magazine. Whether you are in the mood for a Margarita after a long day exploring, excellent Mexican cuisine, or a John Wayne Burger, the El Rancho has a meal for you. Ortega’s Jewelry Store  in the El Rancho offers access to some of the best American Indian Artwork available.  All of the pieces  are handmade by local artists. Navajo jewelry, Zuni Kachina Dolls, and handwoven rugs are offered for purchase.
