Stopped here one night on our way to N Colorado. I researched before and chose this hotel based on the reviews. I grew up staying in "quirky" motels. I LOVED this place. Quiet, CLEAN, friendly owner. Beds were not plush but not uncomfortable. Mini fridge, microwave, hair dryer and coffee maker. Great water pressure and heater. There's a continental breakfast... More

Don't pass this one up! Though it hasn't been "remodeled" like some of the Motel 6's it has very comfortable rooms that include fresh linens, vaulted ceilings, & steam showers!!! Additionally the owners are very friendly and keep the rooms EXTREMELY clean. When I walked into my room I can honestly say it actually smelled good.. rare for any inexpensive... More

Came here because of the great reviews and budget price. Pet friendly with a mere $5 charge for our Miss Daisy. Room was a bit of a 1960/70's time-warp but very clean and charming. Owner couldn't have been nicer. Do yourself and your wallet a favor and stay here.

After reading reviews about this motel we decided to give it a try. Older but clean! Price is right, would recommend and definitely would stay again! Don't be fooled by the looks! The steam bath was something else, too.

My family of 4 was searching for a hotel and came across this one on trip advisor. It has character, reminds of something from the 60's, but room was big and clean. Nice to park right outside your door. Breakfast was adequate with waffle maker too. Friendly hosts, we had the place to ourselves. Best of all, great price. Pick... More

As other travellers have stated, this is an older motel. But it has been well maintained and offered everything that more expensive properties provide. Was nice to be able to park directly in front of my room. Only one thing that could be added - I am a coffee drinker so really apprecite having a small pot in the room.... More

Our second stay here. Owner is friendly and helpful. Our dog loves the space she has in our room and we didn't have to pay a small fortune for having a pet. Breakfast is simple - yummy waffles, cereal, muffins, and decent tasting coffee. For an older motel, this place has been well-cared for. Will stay here again on our... More

This spot didn't look like much from the drive-by but we found it offered a refreshing nod to a comfortable and not too distant past in road-trip lodging. I would hate to think that I could have missed staying there as this place "made" our trip. The friendly and professional staff are rather like curators as much as they are... More

I needed a room around midnight this week and set this one up via Travago. I called the Motel to let them know I'd be in after 11:30pm. They were up and waiting for me (after the office was locked up for the night). The clerk was friendly and accommodating. The exterior was clean and presentable but old contruction...but inside...

Yes the owners were very nice, yes it was quiet, but the bed was hard and the room was tired. I had booked it for two nights but I regretted staying that long. It would be fine I guess for a place to stay on the way to somewhere else. Your choice of places to eat were few and far... More
