Typical Route 66 motel but we got a newly remodeled room. If you get to choose go for a room that has a white door - those are their new rooms. Didn't see inside the other rooms but the one we had was great. AC wasn't on when we walked in and the wifi wasn't the strongest but for $38... More

This motel is GREAT! It's old, and in some ways run down but for under $40 per night (one person AARP discount) you get a decent size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, very hot water with very strong water pressure, a good strong air conditioner unit. The king bed was quite comfortable, the towels were relatively new and thankfully... More

We stayed one night here. The guy was friendly enough on check in. The room was big with all you need as in coffee machine, fridge and microwave. It was nice and clean too. Was just a bit dated , our bathroom door didn't close but it all goes with the age of this motel.

We stayed for one night having spent nearly 3 weeks travelling Route 66. Having had experience of budget motels and a few horror stories to tell we were quite wary (the sign 'no refunds after check in' always makes us worry!) but we were so impressed. A comfortable stay, a quiet area, working wi-fi and for the price it really... More

The decor and furniture are a little tired, but the very large room - which had a TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker & free wi-fi - was perfectly clean, as were the bedding and towels. The bed was comfortable ensuring we had a good night's sleep after a long driving through the desert. There are several eateries within a few... More

Large smoke free room, comfortable bed. Located on old Rte 66. Carpet, beds & walls clean. But the motel has seen better days ...in years past. Eastern wing, fully half of the rooms, closed due to fire that destroyed the last 3 units. So parking spaces were plentiful. Still, my full size PU stuck out into the driveway. The room... More

Moved to this motel after a disaster at previous nights stay. Pleasantly surprised by the large comfortable room. Motel is well off freeway but easy access return to I 40 and direct route north to Bullhead City or Laughlin. This motel location is insulated from the noise of trains passing through Needles. Facility is well maintained with plenty of parking.... More

This was a correct motel for one night. The place was a little old, but it was clean, so that was important. The woman at the reception at night was super friendly and the pool area was nice as well. Free coffee in the rooms as well as wi-fi. No complaints, clean and you get what you pay for. I... More

I stayed here on the last night of a cross-country road trip and it was just what I wanted. Very cheap, quiet and the man at the front desk gave me my choice of rooms. I enjoy the no-frills old motel style and this was just what I was looking for. Good AC on a very hot night and room... More
