Need I say more. I am embarrassed that I tried to save a couple of dollars by staying here. The owners don't seem to care that they are running a pig-pen. The hired help is congenial, but they are not given what they need to make this place acceptable. For a budget motel, go to the Motel 6.

We were driving through Nevada on I80 and needed a place to stay for the night. My theory was that so long as we just needed a bed for a few hours sleep, it didn't matter where we stayed since there would be the same minimal standard in effect everywhere. Bad mistake! This place shows there is no floor on... More

At 1:00 am with a dog in the car we were lucky to find a place. The lady at the desk wasn't certain we wouldn't find guests already in the room because she misplaced the ledger but hey, we lucked out! No AC but the two queen beds smelled nice n bleachy and the shower was great. Cheap and fine... More

DO NOT STAY THERE! I had the worst experience in all of my business travels. First, they charge your credit card ahead of time for the entire reservation, and NO, no money back! The room was $62.00 a night, which I spent with all the lights on because of the bugs (Roaches). The bed still had other guests sheets on... More

We stayed at the Val-u motel For one night in September and regret ever doing so. The carpets in the hallway were filthy and I doubt they were ever cleaned! The rooms smelt like cigarettes when they were non smoking and the bed spreads were dirty with lumpy disintegrating pillows. We didn't even want to think about what was in... More

This was the 2nd worse motel I've ever stayed in. The 1st worse had bullet holes in the window, which thankfully the Val-u didn't! We were on our way to a family wedding, just needed a place to plop down our heads for the night. It was midnight and every other motel in town was full. We were lucky to... More

Recommend looking elsewhere to stay. It was the worse place we stayed on our five day drive back west. Small town and unfortunately there were no vacancies with the small selection of other hotels around. Smelled pretty bad in side, no continental breakfast (with how things were, i don't think I would have eaten food from there), did not want... More

I made reservations in April for an event Memorial Day Weekend. I cancelled all the rooms more than 2 weeks in advance and got e-mails confirming the cancel from Magnuson Hotels. I just looked at my credit card statement and this place charged me for the whole stay for all 5 rooms! (over $800.00) I called the property first and... More

Carpet was filthy. We didn't even take our shoes off. Bathroom was filthy. Bathtub looked like dogs had been bathed in it. Furniture was extremely dirty. We carefully checked the sheets. Arrived too late to be looking elsewhere. Left early in the morning. Continental breakfast was packed old dry pastries and coffee.
