we stayed here one night while visiting friends. The place has seen better days but our room was clean. The room contained a flatscreen TV, microwave and refrigerator. The two beds were ok but the headboards have seen better days. The bathroom was small and outdated, but clean. The gentleman at the front desk was pleasant and check in was... More

It appears the management has family that lives here in the hotel. Lots of people creepily standing outside at night drinking/smoking. Management was friendly enough. Theres truly nothing around here worth mentioning besides the beautiful view of the mountains in the distance. I was satisfied with the quality of the room, wasn't expecting too much from it. I wasn't happy... More

The owners are a lovely, friendly family who go out of their way to make you comfortable. They made up our room early so we could check in around 1:30 in the afternoon. The motel is a block from Walmart and near many stores and eateries. The motel is under renovation, and our room was remodeled and clean.

I will never come back to this motel again. Heating didn't work in the middle of the winter. We were offered a small heater instead. Bathroom was very outdated and was not even cleaned so we couldn't even take a shower. Wouldn't recommend this place to anybody regardless how cheap it is.

Considering the location and what you get for this hotel you are not getting much value for your dollar spent. No amenities, no attractions, no view so you can't really justify charging much for this hotel in the condition it is in. I will give 2 thumbs up to the very nice woman at the front desk even though she... More

My son and I stayed here when we were going north to retrieve a friend of his. We only needed one night. We got the AAA rate which was $53pt. It's an older smaller motel with nice vintage touches still intact. The room was surprisingly big. It was quite clean, smelled fine, the bed was comfortable, there was wifi and... More

While I must admit that the curb appeal is not the best (it reminded me of an old Howard Johnson's motor lodge when I pulled in), the grounds/building are fairly well maintained; and the owner/receptionist was very pleasant, and courteous, to me. The room was clean, and had a new HD TV; as well as a Fridge (with Icebox), Coffee... More

The lobby was spacious and contained many phamplets to nearby attractions on a rack. But there were a few problems: The door was hard to open, so we had to ask the receptionist to unlock it. The hotel was old and could use a renovation but the rooms and the linens were clean. The breakfast selection was small but had... More

I stayed only one night because I chose not to stay there for the second for work. (I let him know upon check in that I may only stay one night instead of the 2 reserved, based on the appearance of the place) I can honestly say this was the 2nd or 3rd worst place I've stayed in over the... More
