It's your basic Motel 6 just overpriced. No pool and a $25 nonrefundable pet deposit is a bit ridiculous. I rated this hotel via an email request to do so and explained the pros and cons. Today I received a follow up letter that left me even more unimpressed from the GENERAL MANAGER. So if you don't want a condescending,... More

Your feedback is certainly important to us as an IHG rewards club member. Unfortunately, surveys occasionally leave management defenseless regarding feedback such as this. I felt it was necessary to respond to explain the facts about our property amenities and the excellent recreation center option a short distance from the hotel that is far superior to any hotel exercise room...

The rooms here are very clean and the bed is comfy. Breakfast has several good options. There are several small cabins off of the parking lot for rent with dog kennels which would be nice for those traveling with pets. Downtown is a short walk away. The hotel could use a pool. Get a room facing the parking lot and... More

Thank you for your input. We offer a free pass to the nearby Goodall Rec. Center that houses many exercise machines, a walking/jogging track, an Olympic sized pool, and a new full size outdoor basketball court. If utilizing the AC unit on continuous fan doesn't cover up the highway noise nearby (which most all motels contend with) when on the... More

The room is very clean, staff is pleasant & helpful, very pleased. We are on main floor & able to park outside our room door, & still have an inside door to the lobby. Breakfast in the morning, new pancake machine woo hoo!!!

Service was wonderful! Breakfast was OUTSTANDING! All of the staff members were friendly and helpful and carried on a good conversation with us! The decor is beautiful!

As with all the Motels in Ogallala this one has been there a bit but has been remodeled. First, the staff were awesome from behind the desk to the morning breakfast bar. Second, for a smaller motel, breakfast was served on time, it was hot and there was plenty. The food was good! I had scrambled eggs and bacon. I... More

Very nice people all around. Clean rooms, but, somewhat small. No pool was the biggest disapointment. Had three grandkids on trip. Gals serving breakfast were very nice and did a great job. Would stay there again if in the area.

Seems to be a newer property. Staff was friendly. Room was quite even though it's right by the interstate. Our room was a jacuzzi suite with living and bedroom area. It is also located right ext to a good Mexican restaurant.

We have stayed at this motel twice while traveling, and have been satisfied both times. The rooms are clean and equip with mini-frig and microwave. The motel is quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. A nice breakfast is available. Plenty of parking at the motel and conveniently located right off I-80.

My family and I stayed here for the night. Staff was great all the way around. Room was clean - like the white bedding. The bed was lumpy but not the worst I've ever. Breakfast was ample and good. Overall I would stay again.

Thank you for your review. Our staff works hard to deliver the consistency that you expect from our hotel.
