Not a great place but ok for a night. Comfortable beds. Pleasant staff. Many tv channels. The room I had was quiet. Safely, the pool is closed; perhaps if us open In Summer. Good parking. Coffee only, no breakfast. Has a seedy feel to it. Cheap fuel next door.

We were traveling through Nevada and were happy to see a smiling face at 3am when we finally stopped for the night. The lady at the front desk was courteous and gave us a small discount on our room which was great for our travelling budget. The room was clean and warm, which was a welcoming feeling after coming in... More

We got two rooms. The hallway was gross, smelly and the carpet was very stained. The first room smelled awful but we couldn't figure out the smell. The second room smelled like someone had urinated all over the floor. We returned the keys and immediately left. Sleeping in your car would be better than this place. We ended up at... More

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
