We stayed here one night after camping for about a week. The place is clean, quiet, and amazingly inexpensive. Hot shower was top priority and much appreciated. Bed was comfortable. Everything worked. Service was courteous. No complaints and I would stay here again.

For low budget hotel, this is it, clean, friendly staff, huge spacious cozy rooms, great bedding, with beautiful wood on the walls, fridge, lots of soap, shampoo and towels, great wifi, close to grocery store and awesome thai restaurant. Note that it is way better than it looks from outside.

We were just looking for the cheapest place we could stay overnight. Little did we know we would find a gem! We have stayed at most of the hotels and motels in Blanding, and this one beats all of them for the price. The room was immaculately clean, the beds were comfortable, the double queen room was HUGE in comparison... More

This is the 2nd time in a year that we have used this facility. Each time we have been treated exceptionally well. Stds. Room, clean, and a King size bed for under $50. Hot showers, normal TV stations, Nuker & refridge, relatively fast WiFi, and areas for animals to explore and releave themselves, all compliment making this an OK place... More

Other nearby hotels were $70+, but P.K. Vyas agreed to $40 plus tax. The beds were new, and the rooms clean. The decor (including the knotty wood paneling) was a bit dated, but overall a good experience.

The motel was quiet and pleasant and set far back from the road. It was close to a local supermarket and other amenities. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a large room, en suite, with tea/coffee making facilities, microwave and fridge. Although it was so cheap, the room and facilities were much better than many other motels including... More

It was clean, with comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, and the air conditioner worked fine.But the outside looked so scarey that I saw one potential customer drive into the parking lot, look around and drive right back out. It looks scarey because it's one of those old 50s style strip motels, and the outside hasn't changed much since. I... More

We drove up to this motel (it is NOT a B&B) and immediately tried to find another room in Blanding. All were full. Defeated, we checked in. The smell of "room deodorizer" in the office should have warned us. In the room, the smell was overpowering, and there was a broken window, with the glass just hanging there. I went... More
