My family stayed here Memorial Day weekend. It's off the main drag with all the other hotels that feature water parks and the higher price tag to go with it.That also makes it a more quiet stay. The room was clean and smelled newly painted, probably for the summer tourist season. It has a large counter area with a sink separate of the one in the bathroom in addition to the fridge and microwave. We used the passes for Noah's Ark that were included with our stay; that saved a load of money. We also used the Passport to Savings book for Tommy Bartlett & the Ducks. While my daughter loved Noah's Ark, my 4 year old was more than content to use the indoor pool. I could barely get him out of it! They also have a game room, laundry facilities, a patio and a playground for the kids. This place has it all, and if they don't have it they give you discounts and passes for it. Also, Mitzi's is about a block or 2 walking distance from the motel. We had breakfast there and it was great. I kicked myself for some of the other places I wasted time and money on. Oh, and Black Hawk gives you a discount coupon for there too!
