I thought the price of this Motel was a little over priced. The photos lead you to believe its located close to the rock, there is actually a busy freeway in between. On check in there was a mix up and a smokers room had been booked. Walking into the room the smell of smoke was so strong it was impossible to breath. The lady was helpful enough to come in and spray the room, it did nothing to take the smell away. I did ask if we could be moved to another room and there apprantley this could not be done. We did not bring in any luggage as the smell would of gotten into all our suitcases. Beds were comfy but smelly. I don't know why windows are not left open all day until next person checks in. We are smokers (but never book a smokers room) even so it was so uncomfortable, couldn't imagine if a non-smoker booked this room by mistake as we did. Very easy mistake to be made, it's not easily visible on the site we booked through. The out door area was nice and we spent as much time as possible sitting out there to air out the room. There was a mix up with the price of the room, apparently the hotel or site we used to book the room are not responsible for this and we just have to wear the extra cost, uncanny how no one is responsible. Wifi offered but did not work all night until the next morning.
