“Very Friendly and Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

We stay here whenever we are in Carson City. The night clerk is very friendly and the rooms are very clean and up to date. Good air conditioning too. They allow dogs and have a very clean pet area. Motel is very quiet when we have been there. Excellent dinner place directly across the hwy. Red's 395 Grill, excellent food and antique decor, with wagons hanging from ceiling in old style warewhouse setting. We will stay at this motel again and again as long as they keep up the great work and friendliness. Highly recommend and you can't beat the prices.

The rooms are back off the main street so, it's quiet. The rooms have been updated. It has a fridge and microwave but no coffee pot. The office does sometimes. There is a nice area to sit outside and a place for dogs. It is close to the capitol (2 blocks.) The grounds are beautiful. Great value.

Room Tip: If someone is in the room above you, it is obvious.

We have stayed here several times in the past years and missed about five years until this Thanksgiving. They are still the same clean, friendly motel. Rooms are fairly large for a motel, very clean, our stay was very quiet even tho the motel was full up. The dog "yard" area was very clean. And the best place for a great lunch or dinner is Red's across the street. We will be back to this motel and I recommend it to everybody.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

We had stayed here for one night 2 years ago and thought "what a nice place, we'll come back if wer'e in the area". Well I guess a lot can happen in 2 years. The room was just ok, old but it seemed clean until we used the bathroom. The initial burst of water from the shower was brown, if you don't place the shower curtain in just the right place you have a wet floor, when you wipe up the wet floor you get black towels. Just when was this floor last washed??? They also have long term residents who live on the second floor of the motel. We had one over our heads who appeared to enjoy stomping feet or moving furniture, we're not quite sure which. Like the other reviewers said, there is an excellent restaurant across the street, well worth the visit but stay somewhere else.

This is that kind of motel you hope to find when you are on a road trip and just want cozy, quiet, affordable comfort and even a touch of that roadside motel charm. Like the previous reviewer, I've been there several times and the people have (even through manager changes) always made you feel welcome. Pet friendly too. The restaurant directly across the street is a must see if not eat. Historic, with lots of art and a broad menu and impressive bar. Highly recommended.

They allow pets which is nice. The rooms are not fancy, but very clean, comfortable and reasonable (much nicer than Motel 6, Super 8, etc.). We have stayed here several times, and will stay again. The people at the front desk have always been quite nice. Good restaurant across the street.

  • Liked — allow pets, yet rooms are immaculate
  • Disliked — prefer four star hotels, but they don't take pets
