My boyfriend and I were looking for a relatively inexpensive place to stay for just one night before flying out of Grand Junction Airport the next morning. We were pleasantly surprised by all that this motel offers! First, we arrived early (around 2pm), and the person and the front desk graciously allowed us to check into our room. We were... More

For a remodeled 1950's style motel , I am impressed! These people have done it right! Clean clean clean, from the rooms, bedding, shower and towels. Additionally the exterior was spotless also, including the pool. Breakfast was adequate to send us on our way. Will stay again if we ever pass through these parts another time.

I organised 10 rooms here as part of a group tour and when I pulled up my first impression was that I had made a mistake as it was an older establishment. How wrong I was the owners were fantastic and had taken great pride in their place. The rooms were renovated and lovely and the pool area was superb.... More

When we first arrived we were concerned. Do not worry. Our room was excellent. The bed and the linen is first class. On arrival our host recommended the city festival on a Thursday evening and it was local and friendly. We had dinner in a great atmosphere Breakfast is excellent. Healthy and fresh.

This place is a classic. As noted, super-clean. We arrived pretty late, but the owners were pleasant and helpful. Our room was quiet and towards the back of the horse-shoe-shaped motel. We parked right outside our room.

Clean, bright, and up to date. Extremely clean and more than you would expect. Real owner pride showing at this motel. Outdoor pool and a nice complimentary breakfast. Chatted with the owner who is genuinely interested in their guests. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

When we drove up I was worried that trip advisor gave bad advice, but I wrong. The outside looks like an old rte 66 motel. It is extremely clean inside and out. The bathroom had all new fixtures, bedding was nice, Direct tv on a flat screen. Okay, trip advisor, you were right!

Great price! Such friendly people. Bed was excellent, after 7 nights of traveling, this was the best night's sleep. Don't usually eat the continental breakfasts but their waffles were blueberry so loved them. Have definitely stayed in much higher priced less pleasant hotels this trip. Would definitely stay here again!

We decided to stay after reading the reviews of the motel. The motel was very clean and the price was right. We stayed here for four nights. The bed was very comfortable and the room was adequate for our stay. The one thing that I didn't care for was I put the "do not disturb" sign on the door to... More

As with other reviewers we based our decision to stay here due to the majority of great reviews of this property. It was a pleasant surprise and basically a budget motel as advertised. As others have said the neighborhood is a bit older/rundown and the motel at first blush also appears as an older property (brick sides). The secret here... More
