A Polish couple own, and live in, the hotel. The wife greeted us when we arrived, was very nice, and seemed accommodating...the husband is grumpy and not very nice! He worked the late shift as well as in the morning before we left. I see other reviews have mentioned him specifically as well. At 9pm I went into the office... More

We were in room 16 right across from the park. I was told the upstairs rooms were larger but we opted for downstairs for accessibility for our very old dog and ease of unpacking the car. The room was spotless, the on-site owners were pleasant, and the continental breakfast was also a welcome surprise. For 2 people with a dog,... More

This motel was a nice find right off the 70. What makes this motel a good find is the rate and nice clean rooms with comfortable beds. The family that runs it is friendly and helpful. We will stay here again when we pass thru again.

We stayed in Fruita to mountain bike so our need was just a no frills budget motel with clean beds & showers. This motel offered that and so much more- it was extremely clean and comfortable, there was a nice nook in the room to store our bikes, the tall mini fridge and microwave were an added bonus since there...

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
