This is a great place for the money... not new but well kept. Room clean, Bed comfortable. Furniture a little old, rug too but it all works. We used our tablet to help us find it. Manager friendly. Towels looked like they couid stand to be bleached. I'm laboring on this to get to 200 words. Stay if you want... More

This unpretentious motel is fine for an overnight stay. It was certainly good value. Clean and spacious room, reasonably comfortable bed, plenty of hot water. Coffee in room only provided for one person, which was a disappointment. No breakfast provided or available.

This is exactly what you need when road tripping. It's clean. It's comfortable. The room is large and has everything you need. Fridge, tv, microwave and coffee machine. An ice maker by reception and wifi. The host is lovely and I would recommend this place to everyone

We haven't even been in more than an hour and I can tell you this is one of the nicest motels there are. The carpet is freshly vacuumed. The bathroom is very clean, especially the toilet. Large fridge. Satelite tv and internet works great. Again, very nice place, at a bargain price. Must stay if you are in the area!

This was a last minute booking and I didn't spend the time I usually would having checked it out. That was a mistake! The staff were very unfriendly, the room was dirty, the area was dubious and the air-conditioning was terrible to control. We arrived and looking at the cars in the car park, I knew we had made a...

I was in room 21. Stayed for one night. This room is bugged with video and audio recording. My vehicle was broken into and I was threatened by the thugs who live there. Place is full of drug addicts. I was truly scared for my life and property while there.

Paid $52 for two of us to stay here one night. Would have been just $38 for one person. Super clean, comfortable bed, fridge and microwave. They even let us park our moving truck in the courtyard to keep an eye on it. Great stay, we'll return next time we're passing through.

The room was also clean and the air con worked fine all be it a little noisy but that's pretty much expected. They also had cable with loads of... More

It had been a while since I had stayed at River Valley Motor Lodge, and on this last visit I am happy to say that they have begun making improvements in the rooms. There was new furnishings, beddings and upgrades done to the bathrooms. I had a pleasant stay and am planning on revisiting again. Needles is a small town,... More
