Established in 1898, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Martin Hotel's dining rooms served heavy passenger and commercial traffic on the nearby Southern Pacific Railroad. As a rooming house it was once a favorite place for area cattle ranchers and sheep men to stay on their infrequent trips to town. T
he Martin’s family-style Basque dining room, bar, and meeting rooms are still a favorite gathering place for area ranchers, townsfolk, and travelers alike. With its unique stucco exterior, familiar veranda, and hitching posts, and its interiors covered with an amazing variety of pressed tin walls and ceilings, the Martin Hotel offers a truly wonderful setting to experience an authentic family style Basque American meal. Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
The Martin Hotel also serves as a concert venue for Great Basin Arts & Entertainment, Winnemucca's local nonprofit organization which produces top-notch American Roots Music acoustic performances. For more on these shows, and to view the schedule of coming events, visit their website: www.gbae.org
