“Nice Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The outside could use some updating. That being said, I enjoyed my stay. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom had a shower but no tub.The front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. I especially liked the very comfy bed with all the extra pillows. Nice!

We were really disappointed with this facility. The entire structure appears to be of last century vintage. Some of the plumbing fixtures were in dis-repair(shower) the beds and rugs were old and ragged. The entire room was small, poorly arranged and dingy. WE were not given any bath towels, when we arrived the first day and had to call for service.The TV set is of the old species but worked okay. The rooms were quite clean . The breakfast meal was the worst that we have ever had.I guess you pay for what you get. The front office access was hard to find and the office and staff seemed polite but disorganized and it looked messsy. The parking lot was a big joke. There were roofing nails on the asphalt where cars parked.In general, we know that we wil never
book a room at this hotel again.We will go with the other cheap hotels( Super 8 etc.).At least they are modern. Richard L Walker 08/25/2013

Stayed at this location after finding a hotel coupon book in Wyoming. Received $10 off the normal room rate. I actually stayed at this location in 1976 when it was a different hotel chain. Liked it then; liked it this time.

Not luxury, but for the price (about $60) adequate in most every way. Room clean, sheets clean. The pool looked clean and inviting. Breakfast was not ready at 6 a.m., after pounding on the door at 6:05, the guy woke up and was very apologetic. It is an older property and the carpets definitely could use a good steam cleaning. Friendly front desk personnel. No major complaints.

I made a reservation at the last moment however, the location was great. The room needs new carpet, the smell of the chemicals was very disturbing. Just looks too old and not well maintained. The bed sheets were awful and couldn't get good sleep.
