This motel may look a little older, but don't let that deceive you. Balanced Rock is exceptionally clean and comfortable with a most friendly and accomodating staff. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a clean, comfortable, peaceful night.

Traveling on my motorbike I stayed in Fruita, CO because of it's location on I 70. This motel is very clean and comfortable. The price was reasonable. The only negative was some nearby train noise, I overheard a few trains during the night.

Every Mom & Pop property owner should come and investigate this one to see "how it should be done correctly". Beautifully constructed and furnished room.s Immaculately clean. Hardwood floors, beautiful tiles, brand new bathroom fixtures. Walled mounted TV, without cables hanging out. Quiet overhead fan. Of course micro and frig and WIFI. Toss in a modest breakfast and you just... More

Stayed here for three nights in a king room which was large, spotlessly clean and a real bargain. Free breakfast was a nice bonus and the owner was very helpful and super friendly. Good WiFi. Don't let the proximity to the railway lines put you off as trains are few and far between. Walking distance to town centre allowed my... More

Kuba's mom has it goin on! Always a friendly face and inviting attitude. Stayed here twice for the local mtn biking. Clean, cheap and the free internet worked both times. Polish transplant family owns and runs the place. Mom is the public face...and what a face. Worth a a trip just to see her

My husband and I stayed at Balanced Rock during our 2 day stay I'm Fruita. It was a very clean room and staff was friendly. Beds were extremely firm, which to some is great..others may feel as if they were sleeping on the hard floor. We would stay here again based on the cleanliness and price.

Really much better than the chain motels. a basic motel, but a great place to get a good nights sleep when passing thru town. probably not a room to... More

We stayed here for a weekend mountain biking trip. It was just what we needed - clean, comfortable and affordable. The grounds and outside of the hotel looked well cared for. Great location - right off the highway and walking distance to downtown Fruita. Dogs are welcome (with a $10/night fee); there's a nice park across the street with a... More

Checked in yesterday afternoon. The lovely owner greeted me, and we got a big! room with 2 queen beds. VERY clean, slept well. Bagels, coffee and fruit in the office this morning. I am not a fan of the corporate "inns", and will choose an independent business every time! This one is great..nothing fancy, just what you need..Awesomely friendly town,... More
