3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great value for money and the money is cheap! It is dated but it is clean. FREE Wifi worked in our room as did fridge. Aircon struggled. Ample parking and very close to the highway. We simply needed a place to shower and sleep on a long distance drive = suited our needs. Wouldn't recommend if you're staying any longer.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Very disappointed, when arrived had found used bar of soaps in the shower, along with a hair ball, ( looked like pubic hairs) in the drain. Very disgusting.

I have no problems with low budget motels, but OMG, I swear to you the bathroom wasnt touched other then the towels being changed.

Also no smoke detector in room. Very bad smell! Ugh I will never ever stay here again.

Front Desk Owners had the nerve to take 20.00 from depositi because the room was messy. We are a cpl, we do not party, it was not messy, in fact I had cleaned and disinfected that room myself !

Absolutely despicable !

It might look run down from the outside but once you get into the room you'll find that its of similar quality to much more expensive hotels. Sure there's no shampoo, conditioner, etc but there's soap and you can find travel size hair stuff at wall mart five minutes away so totally worth it. Out smells clean, the beds are clean and comfortable, lots of towels and the a/c works very very well. We oin one of the upper rooms and we found there were a lot of people hanging out on the balcony/ area that we had to navigate around, but they were just normal folks outside for a a smoke and chatting their fellow smokers.
My only complaint: there was a dark haired cleaner in the morning cleaning rooms as we were up and getting ready to check out. She was cleaning with the suite doors open and was gagging and heaving and throwing up as she was working and was doing this amazingly loud. Louder than a motorbike or car stereo. Not really the owners fault. But gross.

Room Tip: Pick non smoking. They smell better and its not that hard to stick your head outside for a smoke.

After seeing not one poor or terrible review I had great hopes for this motel, especially since we've had some wonderful luck with Mom & Pop motels while on our current 25 day motorcycle trip.

Price point is excellent without question, and service was friendly and helpful but once we got to the room things started to go south. The carpet was pretty much filthy, and there was clearly some sort of snack food remnants between the night stand and the bed that has been hiding from the vacuum for some time. We opted not to touch the floor without shoes or sandals on during our stay.

The bathroom sink faucet had so many layers of scum and dirt on it a team of scientists might have been able to use the layers to determine the last time it was thoroughly cleaned. I ended up using one of our towels to wipe a few layers off the taps so we could at least feel somewhat comfortable touching them. Went to use the coffee maker in the morning but after seeing the top of the pot decided it had likely been awhile since it had been cleaned as well.

Like many travelers, especially those on motorcycles I have a fair amount of electronics to plug in and charge each night, the only two available plugs in the entire room were the two GFI plugs in the bathroom. Found out in the morning when none of my stuff was charged that those GFI plugs go off with the bathroom light.

If you look at my review history you'll see I'm not a fussy traveler and usually quite comfortable at 1 and 2 star places but I can't in good conscience give this place a decent review despite how nice the people were due to how unclean we found the room.

This is an inexpensive, no-frills motel. Check-in was efficiently handled by a pleasant young lady. The room was neat and clean although the carpet could use a steam cleaning. The room included free wi-fi access as well as an older style TV, a coffee maker, a microwave and a fridge. The wi-fi is security enabled and when I had some difficulty logging-in the knowledgeable young lady from the desk scurried up to my room to ensure everything was fine. The bathroom was clean and had a good supply of towels and soap. However, there was no shampoo, conditioner, facial tissues or shower cap. The motel does not have a restaurant, pool or hot tub. However, there are several decent restaurants within easy walking distance.The room air conditioner worked well.

Room Tip: The rooms away from the street are quieter.

Stayed here en route to the Stampede. I booked online through Priceline for around $50.

Good - check-in, customer service, sleep quality, black out curtains, location, price, clean, fridge, microwave

Things that didn't bother me but may bother you- size of room (mine had a double bed and we fit a sleeping bag on the floor but it was tight)

A special thank-you to the manager, Jason, and the maid. We lost a credit card and had to return to look for it. It ended up being across the street at a&w, but the staff here were very helpful! Cheers!

Would stay here again!
