We arrived very late in the evening and were warmly greeted by Jennifer, despite the hour. She laughingly explained the flashing red lights that blink on the horizon as wind fans, and not aliens. After our many hours of driving, she was a breath of fresh air. The parking lot has plenty of room for all the boats, campers, and... More

This was our fourth stay in this hotel. It has become our go-to hotel when travelling south or back home to Canada and need a room in the area. A small town so very easy to get around, right beside a Denny's for dinner and a clean, comfortable, well-priced hotel with a quality breakfast and swimming pool (which we will... More

Always worth the money. clean and friendly. I always look for a Best Western when I travel anywhere now. Breakfast isn't fancy but it gets the day started and since its included, really helps out when you have a family to feed.

Nice enough hotel, but a very poor area for amenities. Dennys or the Mexican/fast food was the only real choice Staff and rooms were fine for a motel style property. pool was freezing!!! Breakfast was fine. no bars for a quick drink after a long ride.

We stayed here for one night on the drive from Grand Canyon to SF. Wasn't expecting much at all but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were really friendly, the room was large and modern, free parking and a complementary breakfast. We got in late so we didn't eat out but there was a 24 hour Denny's nearby. Highly recommend

The room was very clean and the breakfast was great. But the bed was hard and the pillows flat. Plus noise from the trains and the workers that stay here all make for a miserable night. We paid more for this motel than others just down the street thinking it would be quieter. Wrong. Save your money. Maybe even go... More

We stayed here for one night on the way from San Fran to Las Vegas. We arrived without a prior booking and had checked in inside of 5 minutes. The staff were lovely, the rate was very reasonable and there was a good complimentary breakfast the next morning.
