The rooms are pretty basic, there was nothing too bad about them. They were pretty clean. Room cards did not work. I had to make 3 trips up to the front desk to get them redone and never once did they apologize or offer to bring them to me. The remote does not work for the volume you have to... More

Have stayed here three times, staff very friendly. Room was fairly clean. Could use some updates though throughout the whole place. Did not use the pool or hot tub (not sure how clean it was). Would be great if the place had a restaurant (had a place for it). Price was right for the type of motel. The beds could... More

We stayed here for the Dirty Kanza. The motel is older but is kept up nicely. Rooms were inexpensive. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room however, neither one was plugged in or running. The mattress was shot and made terrible creaking noises but it was comfortable. We had a room inside the dome, next to the indoor/outdoor... More

My wife and I chose this since it was somewhat cheap and we usually travel on the skids. We checked in really late and requested extra towels: the desk clerk said "I can't access that room to get you towels." The room was all right, but it is an old motel. The thermostat in the room didn't work worth a... More

This is a fine place to stay on a budget. It was clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I had booked with booking.com and had no problems on arrival with my less than $50 room for 2 double beds. We had a microwave and mini-fridge. I asked the desk to copy some documents for me and it was... More

We were in town for a friends wedding and needed a stay for only one night. Thankfully, we left our son back home with his grandparents because I would not have had him even walk into this room! The bathrooms had a dinge all over it. The heat did not work and we had to be switched into another room.... More

Pros - inside and outside pool, refrigerator with small freezer, microwave, and small coffee pot in room. Cons - Shower did not work, several outlets in the room did not work, the tub looked nasty. No breakfast. I would not recommend this hotel for more than a one night stay. There are several hotels in the area I would look... More

I was part of a group trip and we stayed at the Guesthouse Inn. we had reserved 31 rooms months ago. We phoned an hour before ariving and told the receptionist what time we would be arriving. We got there at 9:30 p.m. They were totally unprepared for us - no keys made! It took over an hour to process... More

1st shift desk clerk was no help. We had a group of about 10 rooms--a reunion of women who hadn't seen each other for 25 years. When calling a couple of days to confirm bookings, the desk clerk on 1st shift could only find 2 bookings. Then, getting her to understand that we wanted the rooms fairly close together was... More
