When we walked in the air conditioning was turned on full blast so the room was freezing, no extra blankets. Just a sheet and the bedspread on each bed. The beds were so hard it was like sleeping on the box springs without the mattress! By morning our backs were killing us. Only one towel in the bathroom, the hot... More

Thank you for your review. We usually remove blankets from all our rooms during the hot summer months as the average temperature is in the high nineties. We start putting blankets as the temps get cooler, usually mid September. The reason the A C was on was to keep the room cool as it was very hot that day. Most... More

The owners were the best thing about this place, they were both very nice. Our room on the other hand smelled like MOLD & made my allergies go crazy, there was a ROACH in the tub, POOP on the light switch in the bathroom. The BED was extremely HARD & the bedding was DINGY. We paid $49.99 for this room... More

We are surprised with your comments. We distinctly remember that before you checked in to the room you requested that you wanted to see if you liked the room. After a few minutes you came back and told us it was fine and that you would be staying. Therefore even though you had good compliments on the owners, you could... More

We just needed a place to lay our heads for a few hours while in town, so we went as cheap as we could find. They had half way decent reviews, so Rustic is what we went with. Can't beat $38.00, tax included, for 2 double beds. Beds were hard, towels dingy and well used. I guess they quit bleaching... More

We travel to Rolla 4 or 5 times a year to visit grandkids and used to stay at the Super 8. After a few bad experiences at the Super 8, we found the Rustic Motel and we are so glad we did. We have stayed there 3 times, the latest time was this last weekend and when I went to... More

I recently moved to the Rolla area and had to stay in different motels for about three months. I stayed at hotels that ranged in price up to around $90/night. In the end I chose to stay at the Rustic because of the price, cleanliness of the rooms, the appliances included in each room (large mini-fridge and microwave) and also... More

The hotel is clean if dated, and it has a friendly staff. The hotel is off a major throughfare, but it is fairly quiet at night. Free parking, free coffee. My blanket had some burn holes and the rooms smelled a little like smokers. There was a refrigerator and microwave.This is a good value for the money. "Stonehedge" replica just... More

Thank you for your comments. We apologize that you found some cigarette butt holes in the blanket on your bed. As regards the smoky smell in your room that could have been caused by guests who request a non smoking room but still smoke in the room. We do deodorize the rooms when we notice that a room had a...

of course at $40/night you shouldn't expect Ritz Carlton luxury. What it is is probably the best maintained 1950's motel I've ever stayed at. It was better than many of the $70/night places I've stayed at. The room was clean. The bedding was comfortable. The bathroom was well maintained. The room was quiet. The front desk clerk (owner?) was friendly... More

After having ridden 400 miles in the rain I was looking for a nice, inexpensive place to stay. I don't think I've ever found a place that was a better value than this. If you're looking for a clean $40 room this place can't be beat. Highly recommended.
