“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This is an older motel that has been kept up very well. Was so surprised at the size of the room - very large with two double beds, good sized refrigerator and nice sized table and chairs - with plenty of room to move around in. The beds were really comfortable and price is reasonable. This place is pet friendly which is a plus. The staff was great. Best place I've stayed in a long time. I highly recommend it. First time I stayed at this chain and I will again.

Other reviews were right on. This place was super clean, very quiet and so reasonably priced. The room smelled nice and fresh. Bathroom was spotless. The room was huge by today's standards. we had two double beds and tons of room to walk around. And, it had two sinks with a big countertop. I have never seen this in any hotel, no matter the price! The breakfast was nice, plenty to eat, and a very clean eating area. If we ever go this way again, we will definitely stay there.

Very large nice room. It was clean and quiet. The bed was really comfortable and nice sheets and pillows. The price was very reasonable. It was the first time we had stayed at this chain and we will again. The staff was welcoming and friendly too. The breakfast was basic continental.

We stopped here while driving from Texas to Colorado. The roads were bad and a lot of hotels were sold out. This one is pet friendly. We slept OK & the room was clean. Wouldn't stay here longer than 1 night though.

This was a very nice and clean hotel. Yes, it is an older style as we have found with Americas Best Value Inns, but it was very pleasant and friendly. The price is right, the room was very large and one of the cleanest rooms we have stayed in. We would stay here again. The parking lot was large enough for our equipment trailer.

Room Tip: Nice clean place for the money

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

A good deal for a nice room. I think. I did find one empty packet of peanuts that seemed to have missed the wastebasket about halfway into our evening there but wasn't sure if my husband was responsible for it and forgot to ask. Sheets were clean (love it when they are white), carpet had seen better days but was okay. The door to the room would not shut properly. You had to really lean into it to shut it, but we did get it shut eventually. Decent room amenities for the price -- lotion and in-room coffee as well, and the coffee was a bit stronger than usual which was nice. Also two pillows to a bed. LOTS of hot water, but the bottom of the tub was a bit wobbly, not sure what was going on? The water from the faucet also tasted good (not always the case). The people at the font desk were nice, although the older lady tended to get a bit chatty. Oh, if you're looking to get some work done online, forget it, they have three networks, but the signals on all were very weak and kept kicking us off. Good price though and overall, fit our needs.
