“Easy Access for Pet Friendly Motel...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Most of the motels in the area were definitely more expensive and had no ground floor access for pets. The clientele in the area is not going to make GQ but sometimes you get what you pay for...
They have quicky waffle et all breakfast available and free WiFi. The Utah Veterinary ER is next door if there are any pet-related issues...

Room Tip: I don't think I'd bring the wife and kids here but for just me and the dogs it was fine....

Was looking for inexpensive lodging while on a boarding trip. It is inexpensive but that's the only good thing. Room was mediocre at best and smelled like someone was burning incense. While I was unloading my car I observed a drug deal in the parking lot. Should have left at this point. When I returned from dinner, walk to my room and three "shady" fellows are hanging out by my door. Two ducked out of sight the third said make sure you take everything out of your car. Immediately went to check out. Guy at desk said he could not refund my money and to call the manager tomorrow. Didn't bother calling back, lesson learned. Do not stay here!

The deluxe room's beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was the worst that I have ever experienced. They ran out of coffee, had no decaf, and no tea. When the coffee, milk, and sugar was all gone, it took a half hour to get refilled.

You get what you pay for here. It has basically the cheapest rates in the area without getting too shady. Room was very clean, place was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Can't ask for much more for the price. It has been recently updated but its older bones do show through in a lot of areas. The heater unit was actually one of the newest and most quiet I have seen in cheaper motels. Breakfast was nothing to write home about and poorly stocked. There is only one waffle iron, not really worth the wait.

I stayed in a room with a single king bed. It was super clean which was good. It was nice, the water in the shower was hot and everything. But things were a little outdated, the tv was an old analog, not a big deal, it was still nice. Also, the bed was super comfortable.

I have NO idea how anyone could leave a positive review of this place! We were totally taken aback at how misrepresented this property is! Non smoking signs were posted everywhere but we saw more people smoking on site than not! The room was supposed to be non-smoking but it was next to a smoking room and the smoke came in through the bathroom vent. The maid service never left more than ONE bar of soap (between the sink and the shower) and never more than one small bottle of shampoo even though we stayed multiple nights and there was more then one person staying.
The breakfast was listed as "continental" but was sorely lacking (stale factory donuts, 1 kind of cereal, 1 waffle cooker, a couple of tables & chairs - cramped, rarely re-stocked)! We went down the first morning during the first hour and there was next to nothing out! We went a different time the next morning and still very few options out. It appeared that the breakfast items were rarely restocked so if you weren't there first thing you didn't eat or have more than one option!
The towels were threadbare, we had to ASK for blankets or extra pillows, and no iron or ironing board in the room, so we not only had to ask, but cart it from the office to our room!
PLEASE spare yourselves the frustration and disappointment not to mention the waste of money!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else! This was ghetto!
