We spoke with an incredibly sweet Bavarian woman who told us a starting rate that was very reasonable. We did not stay, however, because the hotel manager Rochelle was overtly hostile in regards to having comfort animals stay in a room. Even ADA approved animals she would not allow, and as a veteran who has a prescribed comfort animal as... More

OH Ok Kevyn: I don't typically reply but when a review is so far from the truth it is hard not to reply. Although I always appreciate reviews from people who actually stay here which you did not, I would more so appreciate they were honest reviews. On 3/22/2015 you approached me while I was out training a new housekeeper.... More

We got in late and left early on our way to Yellowstone; the motel is run by some very friendly and charming people; it was clean and convenient and that is all that mattered to us. Loved the old school sign out front!!

Yes, this is certainly an older & somewhat outdated hotel. We had a suite that included a living room with futon, small table, and TV, plus a separate bedroom with two queen beds (with the bathroom attached). The suite had plenty of space and very clean -- as was the pool although we didn't use it. The AC's were a... More

The Rainbow is a bit older place with smaller rooms but everything worked, was very clean and the bed was great. Although close to a main road our room was quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the coffee was great. A good deal.

It is very outdated. The furniture was uncomfortable as well as the bed. The air conditioner didn't cool the room cool down the room completely and was noisy. If you just need to spend the night it's ok. It was inexpensive.

Just needed a place to sleep while visiting family during the peak of tourist season and didn't want to spend a lot of $ that the other places were charging. It's an older motel with some updates, but most importantly the room was VERY clean! The price was decent and they also have a complementary breakfast bar. If you just... More

For a hundred dollars a night we did not get a room with a working air conditioner, we had to pack up everything and moved to a back room the size of a postage stamp, the bathroom shower would not drain, I had to use the plunger myself to get it done, Staying here almost wrecked our vacation.... Stay away

We stayed here for a week and loved it. There is no doubt that this is a basic motel. The rooms are simply furnished, the walls are made of painted breeze-blocks, and there are no frills. But it is as clean as can be (sparkling, literally) and it is run by the friendliest people you will meet. We found the... More

I give this a 5 star because of value for the buck. For $55/night you can't beat it. We stayed here last fall for 2 nights, and again this weekend (5/15-5/16). We chose this last fall because it is one of 2 hotels in the area that still boasts an outdoor pool! Frank and staff are friendly and accommodating, the... More
