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

Stayed here last week because I was doing some photography nearby. I was here about 10 years ago, and it's now much nicer than I remember. Staff was accommodating and the bed was comfortable as well. Had breakfast at the restaurant as well. Do a little Googling, and you'll learn some nest history bout this place.

Location was great right on the main street of Gila Bend The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were a little small . Rooms a little dark. The restaurant for breakfast was very good and liked the fact that you were served with a choice of menu instead of self service.

We've stayed at this hotel before, and even though it's rather dated, we enjoy the tradition and ambiance. However, we chose to have dinner there the night we arrived because we could walk and it was convenient. The wait staff clearly didn't want to be there, and the salad bar was full of wilted lettuce and very little to choose... More

The choice to stay at this hotel was a prompt decision. We had been relocating with a trailer full of furniture and the travel had taken us much longer than expected. The property is a motel style with the entrances to the rooms exposed to the outdoors. There was plenty of parking for no additional charge. In fact, the internet... More
