This Motel is always clean and comfortable. The outside always has lots of flowers in bloom and is well maintained. We enjoy the pool and spa area as well. The staff is there are several resturants nearby and a shopping center.

We stayed in April for a race. It had a covered pool which the kids enjoyed. I loved the energy saving device by the door - you use your key to turn on the power and the aircon. Clean and comfortable, and great customer service!

I stayed at this hotel in February for a business trip and stayed one night. I came in April to for pleasure and checked out hotels again for my stay. I was considering staying at a cheaper hotel but decided to stick to what I know and I know I can count on a clean, comfortable stay at this hotel... More

It is amazing that there is a hotel with a heated outdoor pool and spa when there is snow on the ground. Nice swim towels were available. The grounds were nicely landscaped for an area that has cold temperatures. We could see this from our room. My biggest complaint was that there not many choices of protein for breakfast. The...

I am so happy to read that you enjoyed our heated pool when you were staying with us last. We planned to remodel our pool and surface area, but due to the drought, have postponed the fiber-glassing of the inside of the pool and the resurfacing of the pool area until late October, early November, so that our guests can...

The office staff was very friendly and helpful! The rooms are basic but clean and the breakfast was better than average continental style. The highway noise is significant but for the money, it's a good deal. We will stay there again when visiting family in the area.

I stayed here for a few days at the end of March. The BWGK isn't some big swanky resort but more of a roadside type hotel. The thing I can say was for the money and the area this was a good place to stay. The room was very clean and pretty basic. Flat screen, Mini fridge, microwave, iron, etc.... More

We have family in the area and have stayed in this hotel for the last 10 years whenever we come to visit. This place never disappoints! Location next to a grocery store, fast food, casual dining and Ikeda's makes it even more appealing. The front desk is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I love all the flowers planted around the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel. I am so glad to read that you enjoyed our gardens. Our gardener Kate does a fantastic job and our guests are always asking for the names of the plants she uses,so we have small identification tags on them now. We hope to see you again when... More

Very nice front desk staff both in the evening and morning. Very helpful in advising some local sights with what were were looking to see and experience. Nice to see a Mac for guest to use. We did not get a chance to use the pool facilities as we got in late from a long trip accross Nev.
