The location was great and the staff was courteous and helpful. The room was cramped and filled with older, bulky furniture. The bathroom was roomy, but did not have shelves or countertops to put your personal items on. There was also a high step up into the bathroom that I tripped on the first time I went to look in....

My son and I spent one night at the Ridge Top motel. Main reason was price. It is 10 miles from Harrah's Casino and very easy to get to. The motel is old but it was clean and served our purpose good. I would stay there again.

We had a 4-night stay a couple of weeks ago. We look for a pet-friendly/location/good rate combo when we travel. We did see and consider the comments from skippersmama and adventuresofmom below, but decided to try Ridge Top anyway. As it turns out, we have no regrets and we would stay there again. It is quite true that the rooms... More

After reading reviews I thought this would be a good place for me and my grandson to stay. It was small and dated, the tv was terrible, ac barely worked...all of this could have been overlooked for the price, the roaches and large worms inside the room however I could not overlook. I had to argue to get a refund... More

Fantastic views of mountains from this budget motel, but interior of our room was depressing and shabby (like an old London bed-sit!) Floor beneath the tub was caving in, spiders in the bathroom and we killed a roach- ugh. We had a non-smoking room but people were sat at a table outside our room smoking , so it stank anyway....

I'm giving 4 stars because of: very friendly service, nice pool and pool area, clean rooms, motorcycle friendly, family friendly. Nice little family owned hotel. My only negatives were they do not put shampoo or hair dryers in the rooms. They only put soap. I found that odd. So if you go you'll have a nice stay, but take your... More

This is a great motel if you want great customer service, peace and quite, and just plain relaxation. Sanjay, the owner, and his wife Reni, went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. It is an older motel, but very well kept by the owners. It is very affordable. Love the older "Mom and Pop" motels!!!

The location is ok good view of mountains. For it's age the motel is ok. Our room was a king room. The brown wood ceiling made the room dark.The amount and size of the furniture made it very small. The bedding looks as if may have come from Wal-Mart

What customer service! We awoke to find that the owner put a towel on all of the motorcycle seats parked in the parking lot so we could wipe the dew off in the morning!!! Nice touch! The facility is clean and tidy. I am pretty picky and normally stay at large chain hotels..but hey, we're in the mountains. I was... More

This is an older, locally owned property - which I typically prefer over chain/franchise properties. The fixtures and furnishings have not been upated but everything seemed to be well maintained and in working order. A/C, fridge and tv all worked fine. There is also wifi, and due to the location atop a ridge, cell service is available. The grounds are... More
