Oh, man...where to begin. First off, believe the other reviews because they're not exaggerating one bit. There are a couple of cool things about this place: it's a beautiful mid-1950's survivor that appears to be all original down to the room furniture and wall sconces, and it's far cheaper than anything else we found in the area when we rolled...

Hot shower, comfortable bed. Courteous management, and handsome. Clean. Step back into time, this place reminds me of my Grandma's house. Better than any chain in area for price. Refrigerator and TV. 4 of us stayed for $45. Recomend for anyone who needs a place to sleep for the night.

Room was clean management extremely friendly $38.00 for two per night. Close to town and interstate unfortunately the pool was out of season highly recommended to elderly travelers and couples on a budget .

My husband and I stayed here on our way home to WA. The rate was very low, which was good because we were on a tight budget. The room was older but the furnishings were clean and the bed comfortable. The wifi was fast and easy to connect to. The manger was polite and explained how to turn the heater... More

Train track really close but not too disturbed by it. I think the train went by one way and later the train backed up and blew for the crossing again but can't prove it. The TV went out,, DTV, early in the evening when we simply swiveled the TV. Turns out the cable had no end on it and was... More

After a long days drive with my son on our wonderful road trip to Utah we decided to stay in a motel instead of camp. We are not the finicky type!! The owner first seemed offended that I wanted to use a credit card and I got a funny feeling so I paid with cash. He kept asking if we... More

We stopped here when we got tired of driving. We got there very late, around midnight. The price was very low. The hotel owner was a very nice older man. He made conversation, and walked us into our room and showed us how to work the AC. It was a kind gesture. The hotel is definitely showing signs of age,... More

On our trip to Yellow Stone and looked for a quick and cheap place to sleep @ 1am. Compared to some hostels we have been in this is pretty do-able! This place is not for the hotel motel holiday Inn type! But it is super clean. ( my room was at least) Neighborhood is good and quiet, but you do... More
