Spent our first night here on our tour through the states and the hotel was a welcome sight for sore eyes, or should I say sore back. The room was excellent for the price range. The host, Roger, is still the nicest guy we met on our trip. The service he provided during breakfast and the pleasant company of his... More

As a seeker of value in overnight lodging, I believe $50 or so is a fair amount for a bed, TV and shower in an average motel in the average small American town. Not, however, in the case of my night at the Economy Inn. I should have been paid to stay there. Family with children in room above me,... More

We checked in here late in the evening after a terrible day's drive through pouring rain in the desert! As we tried to settle in, the party next door set up a table right outside our door, and proceeded to have a birthday party for one of their foursome, complete with drinks and toasts and laughter. Not a very restful... More

After being kicked on the streets with my mother, we chose to stay at this establishment for a week or two, and it was simply amazing. The staff were beyond friendly, rooms were nice, and actually relatively quite for the area it was in. I also stayed on a separate occasion a year or so later with my friends and... More

The decor and furniture have undoubtedly seen better days, but the room - which had a TV, fridge, microwave & free wi-fi - was perfectly clean, as was the bedding and towels. The bed was comfortable ensuring we had a good night's sleep after four hours' driving through the desert. There are numerous eateries within a few minutes' walk. We... More

This hotel offers a simple, clean room for the night at a budget-friendly price. You could do worse for the money but I'd be surprised if you could do better. Nice TV choices, fridge and microwave, and working wireless internet too. Just don't expect more than hotel coffe and a packaged danish for "breakfast" and you'll be fine.

This is pretty good budget accommodation. You definitely get what you pay for. For less than $50 it was worth it. The room was clean, the bed (and sheets) were clean and comfortable. Towels and bathroom were clean. An interesting array of items such as toothpaste, body lotion, craisins and drink flavourings were provided, however no shampoo or conditioner. The... More

The room was clean and the bed was good but the shower didn't work properly and the Internet kept coming and going. The room door didn't shut properly and the handle looked like it had seen better days. But it was close to lots of restaurants and grocery stores.

The office door is open for you. The owner walks the property. For the price, it offers the best for your money on a one night stay.
