Didn't have too high hopes for this place. We were pleasantly surprised by room, it was very clean and looked recently refurbished. The soap and shampoo packet are basic, you get one toilet roll and toilet blocks easily. However bed was comfortable and the aircon worked and heir us cool, probably too cool at night as you only get one... More

This motel is located almost under the highway, so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs as you will certainly hear the trucks thundering by. I used earplugs and that drowned the noise out. This motel was fine. It is clean and the bed was comfortable. The furniture was quite impressive and ornate. I wonder where they got it?... More

I reserved a room through Booking.com several weeks beforehand. We pulled in to town at 4pm and I was told that they were over-booked, and that the reservation had been transferred to another motel in Needles that the family also owned, several miles away. I was given directions and a light apology. I showed up at the other motel and... More

This is a basic motel - as you would expect for $46 a night for a family of four sharing two queen size beds. That is the cheapest we have paid in the US so far. We were at the section furthest from the road, and there was little road noise. Beds were firm and good quality. The pillows weren't... More

This was an overnight stop on our way through the area and we decided to stay here based on the reviews on this site. What a find - $46.00 for the night and I have stayed in Fairmont Hotels that weren't as nicely furnished as this room was. There were no real amenities (coffee maker, shampoo etc) but at that...

I am sometimes skeptical as some glowing reviews I have read turn out to be less than accurate, but trust me on this one! The outside of the front of this older property is clean and the parking lot is obviously swept and maintained. The room are great! It has been extensively remodeled and I could not believe my luck... More

We stopped for a night passing through to AZ and will be back. While the building is older the rooms were recently renovated and there were new mattressesthat were quite comfortable. We both slept very well. The room was nice and dark and the AC worked well. The only complaints are the shower didn't maintain temperature - it kept getting... More

Nice hotel, from,outside looks a little bit old but inside it is different. Huge room, comfortable, big bathroom, parking, small swimming pool (out of order right now). Near the 95 going to the west or east. Good quality for the price.

I too am amazed at how some reviewers seem to search for the clever phrase to put down this motel. I stay a lot at Motel 6 because the dog stays free and I know what a budget motel looks like and sleeps like. This motel is a large step up from that. It is not five starts, but I... More

I've seen a lot of negative feedback on this place but honestly its great. Its a "Motel".....in Needles people so don't expect 5 star amenities. It's newly renovated. Clean. Nice decor. Smells clean. Comfortable beds. A/C worked great. They provide soap, a hairdryer, frig and microwave in the room. If your needs are beyond that then bring it or just... More
