I stayed 1 night after a late evening arrival from DFW. The checkin was a breeze and the room was neat and clean. The room was a king room which was recently updated, with a comfy bed and a newly remodeled bath. The room included breakfast, which was standard motel fare, but again it was well presented and clean. Parking... More

This hotel is clean and conveniently located. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good continental breakfast. Very good value for the money. Nothing fancy, but the bed was large and comfy. Our room was near the back, and it was nice and quiet.

I always check Trip Advisor prior to booking a room when traveling. I was so surprised to see this as the #1 rated in Grand Junction. I kept reading and finally decided to go for it. What we found was a gem in our stay here. Very comfy, clean and updated rooms, a tad on a small side but very... More

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!
