The service was very bad upon check in, and the rooms were not very nice. You get what you pay for, and it was somewhat cheap. They did not even have hot water for tea in the morning, but I'm not sure I would even trust them to make hot water. I cannot recommend this place... spend a few more... More

Stayed here one night while visiting niece in college. I was not impressed overall. The rooms were clean, but dark. The toilet stool made a terrible noise when flushed. The ad said breakfast, but the clerk said that they have never served breakfast. My advice would be to stay at a littler higher quality motel and save yourselves the price... More

On our way to Colorado,we decided to stay in Hays for the night. We were looking for a cheap room and this was it. All I can say is, you get what you pay for. Everything looked clean and it was quite. I didn't care for the mattress, I thought it was too firm. The room had a mini fridge,... More

We actually ended up staying here as other hotels were not available for a ground floor room. I was traveling with my 91 y/o mother, so no steps was a must. We were very pleased with the accommodations! The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. We felt the in room amenities were equal to many more expensive locations.... More

Don't kid yourself, it is a value inn. Hays was a stop off for us on the way to colorado so I wasn't interested in spending big bucks. You get all the usual, microwave, fridge, ironing board... More than back in the UK! Very friendly front desk staff too. We didnt try the pool but I would expect too much... More

Being from Western Colorado, with a brand new America's Best Value Inn in our town, we made the mistake of thinking this would be similar. NOT!!!! Imagine my surprise when we pulled off Highway 70 and found, not a new motel, but the old Vagabond Motel converted to a Best Value. The only thing new was the sign and it... More

This Inn is low-cost lodging. It was a disappointment because we selected it based on the advertisement of a hot tub and a pool, but both were out-of-service. For an overnight it was okay, but for anything longer there might be better choices. Numerous oil workers and other trucks were evidence of company field men who stay ... probably by... More

The desk clerk was courteous and helpful. They have no breakfast available but recommend a little restaurant nearby. The room was clean and neat. There were 4 pillows on the bed and all was very nice. We would stay there again with no hesitation.

Place was neat and clean, staff very polite and helpful. Close to restaurants and shopping. Room was nice and quiet, very clean. Only complaint, we found the bed hard as a rock and woke up sore in the morning. Would have been nice to have a continental breakfast at this place, but not offered.
