This motel is basic but spotless clean. In addition it is one of the cheapest in the area. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners, who I might add did not even laugh at me when I needed instructions for the shower (it's a pull not a turn!!). If you are expecting plush carpets and room service this is... More

Perfect location. 3 minute drive to Garden of the Gods Trading Post. staff very helpful and accommodating. Room was extremely clean. Nice kitchen and bathroom. newly updated. Beds were comfy. Much cleaner and nicer than places I have payed 180+ a night for. Doesn't look like much on the outside but if you give it a try you won't be... More

This place was nothing exceptional, but met all of our needs and was clean. There was a fridge and microwave, wireless and a lot of tv channels compared to a regular hotel. There are permanent residents that inhabit the lower level, but that was not an issue. Looked like there was formerly a pool, but there is just a patio... More

Me and my family explored USA and Canada for 3 weeks starting our trip from Denver and ending up in Seattle. We are a family of five with three grown-up children. In some places we shared a room and in some we took two separate rooms. This was the second place where we stayed on this trip. We had a... More

Older building but the room was very very clean! We came down for a horse show and just needed a decent place to sleep, this was better then expected. we were able to choose between a room with 2 beds or one that each bed was in a separate room, we choose the later and it worked out great. The... More

My rating is based on what this motel is and not what it doesn't have. This motel is old. It doesn't have lots of amenities like breakfast, etc. But I did get a clean, comfortable room that included a fridge, microwave and coffee-maker. Everything was in good repair. The owners have accents and may be difficult to understand on the... More

I found this motel on Internet and had great reviews so we booked our room. My sister and got there and was checked in. The lady told us the room was not finished being cleaned but gave us our keys and showed the room to us. It was an older motel but so big and very clean. My sister had... More

We recently stayed at the Mel-Haven on our trip to see the peak. It was great for our family. With 4 kids it's hard to find affordable accommodations but this place fit the bill. The outside looks older but the inside of our room was much nicer. There was a queen bed with a fold out love seat and a... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night at the end of June 2011. We ended up with a huge room with 2 queen beds. The perks were that there was a microwave and fridge as well as free wifi. The room was very clean. The air conditioner was very loud though. We will definitely come back when we're... More
