The man at the front office is super nice! We felt very comfortable staying here while passing through town on our way to Colorado. Plan to stay here on the way back. Rooms are very nice and you can't beat the price. AND there's an indoor pool and hot tub, which is very nice after a long drive :)

The place is a bit old, carpet is completely dirty and pool needs to be heated. The motel needs to be updated. Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly. I enjoyed the direct tv and HBO channels. Bed covers seem a been rough, or old. Overall I had a good time here.

We came into town for an extended stay and found this place to be to perfect fit. They had a great room with 3 beds to accommodate our family for a very reasonable price. The house keeping did a great job making sure we had what we needed and my kids had a good time in the game room. Staff... More

It is what it is - not that great but OK if you just need a place to sleep. I do think they should at least give you two bars of soap so you can have one at the sink and one in the shower. The desk clerk was extremely friendly and the room seemed clean. It's an open motel... More

We stop here every year on our way to somewhere else. The rooms are clean and the cost is cheap. This is not a resort, just a place to rest for the night. The coffee is hot and breakfast is ok. We have always been treated well.

Stayed here after a late arrival. The staff were friendly. However the hotel has obviously had better years. It has been around a while and is dated. The clerk did say they were doing a deep clean so that's good. However it is on a major highway for semi trucks and the sound of the trucks speeding up and slowing... More

Breakfast was great! Belgian waffles, eggs and bacon plus all the other typical items at a hotel. Room was clean and cool when we arrived. The public washer was being repaired so the Manager offered the housekeeping laundry room for free and we used it, thank you so much. That gesture of going the extra mile to accommodate us, touched... More

We stopped on our way back from Colorado. Not the best hotel, older, but great price and pet friendly. A/C worked great on a very hot day. OK breakfast with waffles and eggs. Plenty of parking. Very close to stores and restaurants. Nice in door pool, hot tub was not working.

Pleasantly surprised by this nice hotel. Owner is visible, rooms are updated and clean. We stayed in a pet room that was also handicap accessible. It smelled clean upon entry, was cold and the bathroom was large enough for a wheelchair. Loved the new flat screen TV, queen beds, and the linens and pillows were noticeably nice. The beds were...
