3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

For the budget minded traveler, this motel is adequate and inexpensive. The room was very comfortable, even had a fridge and microwave, with the one outstanding drawback being a very small and outdated bathroom. I got the feeling that the current owners are remodeling the units, and just haven't gotten around yet to updating the bathrooms, because I noticed many updated features, such as the AC/heating and the room decor. The bed was very comfortable and front desk staff was friendly and efficient, and everything seemed very clean. This is certainly a no frills motel, as ice was available upon request only, and coffee is available for a price at the Coffee Mania shop on site. The woman running the coffee shop was rather surly, but I don't think she is directly associated with the motel. There are also several eating/drinking establishments very close to the motel, and the location is very near a small park with an interesting centerpiece featuring the two cowboys whose card game gave name to the town. Despite my room being close to the main road through town, it was not noisy as the traffic subsided quite a bit after dark.
