Good stay, very quiet. The attached restaurant was good. If you stay, they give you a breakfast voucher and you order standard items off a special menu. We were surprised at the quality just because it's a small place in a small city. We would stay here again if passing through. The front desk staff were very friendly. We got... More

We paid $180 for a room for two, including a fee of $20 for pet! Clean and really nice help, but that is silly for what you get! We didn't plan we'll on our trip and. Needed a place late.... Don't do that or you'll pay big. A positive is that it does include a decent hot breakfast.

I spent two nights in this hotel and found it comfortable and enjoyable. First things first, it is the "Space Age Lodge" because the original builder (property was built in 1964/65) was originally a mine operator who was really into the space program. Park of his efforts including seeing how various metals from his mining operations could be used toward... More

We stayed here at the end of December 2014 for one night. The room was clean and tidy although a little small, having said that I liked the huge bathtub! It was a little pricey for what you got, however that is to be expected when they is little other choice. Other reviewers have found the noise from the railway... More

We stopped in Gila Bend AZ got a room at the only decent hotel we had to pay 131.00$ for a 1950s hotel very small room's but had to stay here. We will never stay here again for that price I guess they think it is a best western plus or premier.

Traveling from California back to Texas, we decided to stop in Gila Bend. This Best Western was the best hotel in town based on the reviews we saw. It was clean. The bed was comfortable. Really liked the shower head in the morning. Check-in was quick and easy. Parking is a little cramped, particularly if you are pulling a trailer... More

A unique hotel - space design (even little details like the umbrellas at the pool or the hut for equipment) and quite fun to walk through. However, the place shows its age - things fall off or are loose, could use a repaint, etc. Spacious room with good TV, bathroom with window, spooty internet. Breakfast in the enclosed restaurant (you... More

This was one of the most unique motels we have ever stayed at. Everything was in NASA or Space ship motif. The rooms were nicely appointed, Wi-Fi and TV was very nice, with no waiting to get online. This facility sits on the old US Highway, and there is a fairly large amount of traffic, but the motel is very... More

OK, it's just a 1960s motel, but I've stayed in a lot of "retro" motels, and this one does most things right. It is clean. Road noise didn't bother us. The bed is comfortable and doesn't sag in the middle. The Little Italy restaurant is just across the street (but don't try to be a pedestrian!). The lobby with NASA... More
