Horde players can get themselves into the inn via having a paladin bubble them to get by guards. This can lead to fun things like two paladins bubble themselves and a warlock into the inn so they can summon other horde players into the inn as well.

The bartender's name, Stefen Cotter is likely a reference to the 1970's TV show Welcome Back, Kotter.
The inn's name is likely a reference to a line from the song "Go the Distance," written for the 1997 Disney animated movie Hercules.
There is a box of Hearthstones located at the bottom of the lefthand staircase in the Legion version of Dalaran.
