Excellent place at the right price. Good wifi signal in room n car by motel room. Room equipped with frig microwave small coffee pot (but free coffee in lobby with breakfast) We had a minor issue with opening our door and the owner handled it in a polite prompt manner. Easily booked room online through trip advisor.

This is a family owned hotel that is kept very clean. I ate breakfast in the lobby and had a chance to speak to one of the owners. She was very personable. She made the statement that she wants people to tell her if there is any problem before they leave, because she wants to make sure any issues are... More

I found the Crown Motel matched most of the reviews I saw. All I needed was someplace clean and quiet for a single night. When I arrived I was given a first floor room, but asked if there was anything on the second floor. There wasn't, but they moved me a first floor room that didn't have a room above... More

This a modest motel, clean with all the basic facilities you would need It's ideally located near a laundromat, pharmacy, groceries stores and places to eat. The owner and his staff are very pleasant and helpful. He couldn't do enough for us. The price was good and value very good

The room was clean and quiet, beds comfortable. Lighting better than most at similar cost. Everything worked but the wifi. Router needed reset and we notified office, but it didn't get done before we gave up. Desk clerk friendly and helpful. Breakfast minimal but adequate, especially for the price.

Debated whether it's technically possible for a budget motel to rate five "stars" but we had absolutely no complaints and a good stay there this weekend when my sister and I were down for a big class reunion in a nearby town.

We had a king size bed, LCD TV, bathroom was clean with fairly nice looking tile although some of the grout in the shower was missing.

We needed to get away. I wanted to work and draw, he wanted to Metal Detect in the Valley. The staff was very courteous and helpful, the room was extremely clean. Not fancy, but we weren't looking for fancy. Everything worked, the price very reasonable. THANK YOU!
