This is an interesting motel and the the owner is a very friendly guy. I was feeling fairly positive about my experience until I threw back the covers for a good nights sleep. The bed was in my estimation less than optimal and I in my estimation past the time for replacement The mattress springs were easily felt on what... More

I called late (around 10:30 pm) on a snowy May night and told the desk clerk that I was an hour out. He said the desk closed at 11, but volunteered to stay up until I got there. Very friendly when I arrived. Rooms all have hunting and fishing motif. Basic, clean, comfortable. Don Thomas Bakery (around the corner) is... More

That is what my wife said upon entering our room at the Rio Grand Motel. But, we didn't even get to the room for about an hour after arrival, because the owner is a very friendly person, and we hit it right off. We exchanged stories, and he told us a lot of interesting things about the area. He is... More

Clean rooms. Recently remodeled. Friendly staff. No hassle for check out you can drop the key in the deposit box. Themed rooms. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. Rustic decor. Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot available. For the price this is a great place to stay.

Wonderful "mom & pop" motel! Each room has a different wildlife theme. I stayed in room #7, which is the bighorn sheep room. The manager/owner was very nice and helpful. Ate dinner at a restaurant (Nino's) that he recommended and wasn't disappointed. Had a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, sink, stove/oven, dishes/silverware/pots & pans. Please support these wonderful motels!

Me and my guy went on a spur of the moment road trip with no destination and ended up at the Rio Grand. We were very happy with our choice to stay here over a chain hotel. The price was extremely low as the rooms are all unique and clean. We stayed in the white tail deer room with a... More

At a rate approximately 1/3 of the large chain hotels in the area, especially during the summer tourist season, you can't beat this little gem. Although it's located right in the middle of town near a main intersection, there was no traffic or other noise. The rooms are clean and the owners are friendly and accommodating. Several restaurants are within... More
