The outside of the motel looks like it was deserted. But inside, the clerk, Stuart, checked us in speedily and was as pleasant as can be. We were in Rm. 118 and it was a small. The room itself was very clean and free Wi-Fi, ice and vending machines are available. It's locate near an easy off/on interchange of Hwy... More

Really nice motel at an excellent price. The owner was very accomodating - they gave us a room on the main floor as per our request when we booked it on Booking.com - the bed was very comfy and the room was clean and fresh - the breakfast included was really good and there was an excellent assortment of foods....

The price is great . And the service is very helpful and nice. This is my second time stay here. The room are clean and not small. The parking is a crazy mess. But we like it. But the area is like a ghost town .

It wasn't clean, I didn't feel safe, the rooms are small, the bathroom dirty and it smelled. If you must, go ahead, just be prepared. Not lots of hotels in the area so keep moving if you are able to. Sometimes I-80 is closed so you might have to stay here.

I had to stay here for work, and we were on a budget. The room was small but clean, and the heat and the hot water were fine. I was a little afraid when we pulled up and saw no cars out front. The biggest oddity of this place is the lighting. It's DARK EVERYWHERE. And it's not because there... More

even for a $50 hotel room this place should be cleaner, the room is very basic which is fine, the breakfast was inedible - terrible, thawed out frozen waffles and terrible coffee, we just needed a place to sleep overnight while traveling, we slept fine, i wouldn't stay here again

This was a very nice clean hotel. It was really quiet. The young man behind the desk was very nice and helpful. The bed was a bit uncomfortable. But after driving 65 miles in the snow, a bed of nails would have been appreciated. Breakfast was ok. The usual cereal, toast, bagels, juice, milk, and coffee. I would deffinately stay... More

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your experience. It's great to hear that the staff was nice and helpful.
