This was another stop on a cross-country road trip. Very nice motel, large room, nice furnishings, clean. It has a restaurant and casino. Quiet room, nice bed, outdoor pool. No complimentary continental breakfast like most motels in this class.

On the way home from Yellowstone (with a detour to the Dinosaur Museum in Vernal, UT) we wanted a place to overnight with a pool for the GD. Gold Country filled the bill for us. After weeks of paying $200 per night for substandard park housing, the $80 (+ plus taxes) rate was appealing. I had screwed up and made... More

Midway point for us and a good place to stay the night with our dog. Room was clean (we stayed in same room twice) and hotel very quiet. Casino is not attached so the smoky smell does not travel to the room (we were at the end unit by campground). The property was well kept except the dog owners who... More

Front desk very nice. Was on bottom floor which meant easy access to car. Seemed clean enough except for visibly stained rug. Huge bathroom. I like sleeping in cold rooms but with only 1 thin blanket (and no extras o be found) that was hard to do. I'm giving a rating a Poor because the tub/shower did not drain! Not... More

Assumptions are a bad thing. When I pulled into the parking lot, I said "oh no not another cheap hotel. I was TOTALLY wrong. This place was a VERY nice hotel for the money, whatever my boss paid for it. I was impressed with it. Nice BIG beds for a skinny guy like me. Well lighted, TV was modern, the... More

Very comfortable non-smoking room, the a/c was just right, and the kids loved the spaciousness of the room. The pool was very popular with lots of travelers the day we stayed, but we still enjoyed our swim and getting cool from the warm sunshine. We had some nachos from the restaurant, using a coupon we got at check-in. Very delicious!... More

Non smoking room was delightful aster registering in smoke. I thought I was in a VFW meeting hall. The registration lady was outstanding and likely should get occupational hazard pay for inhaling passive smoke 8+ hr/day (Yes, it is a carcinogen!! and clearly linked to lung CA). The places to eat are limited. Check out TA or Yelp-- check hours... More

There was food stain on the table. The bathroom emitted a bad odor and the garbage truck came early and loud. It was ok for a one night stay. Everything was basic. The room is large, bed soft. Staff were nice, professional. Wifi was excruciatingly slow.

I stayed here on the 1st night of a 5 day cross country trip with a cat and a dog. I made my reservation that morning not knowing what to expect, just that they would take both a cat and a dog.
