Non-smoking room smelled like smoke, several splits in carpet seams, ancient smoke-stained wall furnace couldn't keep up with cold air leaking through front door. Beware, now goes under the name Tower 64 Motel.

The lady at the desk was nice but thats the only nice thing I have to say.The room smelled like cat urine bad and there were dead bugs everywhere in the bathroom. The carpet was torn up and the deadbolt in the door had been taken... More

All I can say is what an awful experience! The room smelled awful! There were dead bugs and cigarette burns all over the carpet. What a disgusting room! We wouldn't have stayed but it was the only place around that wasn't full. Now I know why! Advertised free continental breakfast with room but there was none. No break in price... More

We stayed in the RV park for a month. Bathrooms and laundry was advertised. The men's bathroom toilet was constantly plugged, and no toilet paper was ever available. We were told to bring our own. The women's bathroom also houses the washer and dryer. Men would come in and out and fold clothes while women were bathing or using the... More

Carpet was filthy, could not stand to walk barefoot. Hair in shower. Tv, fridge, microwave - smallest I've seen in years! Who is gonna steal a 13" TV? Window latch had been drilled from the outside. Screen was damaged, flies had no trouble getting in. Overall, their price was at least double what the room was worth. Spend a few... More

My husband, children, & I stayed here for two nights. We arrived after 9:00 pm. I had called in advance to let them know we were coming later than expected. After numerous door bell rings for check-in, a man in jeans and minus his shirt, showed up to let me in. The official attendant came (appropriately dressed) after a few... More

Just outside the city limits and directly across the highway from a 24 hr major chain store. The desk manager gave allowances that made my weekend in Trinidad extremely pleasant. When I visit the town again, I will stay here.

The desk closes at 11 pm and they will not answer the bell or knocking after that time. They also turn off their sign at 11 pm. This was not clear from website when we made the reservation. I see that has changed. We arrived in Trinidad about 11 pm and missed the hotel because they had turned off their... More

For 50 dollars a night this is a steal. Calm and quiet , rooms were exactly what I expected for the price but also clean and tidy. I used it as a midway stop between Denver and Santa Fe and was not disapointed. As a clue to the location theres a huge oil derrick in the parking lot (hence Budget... More
