“The Cockroaches checked in and never checked out!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The manager at the check-in window was not a people person! One price for 2 person room (no AARP). Ok, I can live with $45 for 1 night, until I got the key and went into the room. Cigarette burns on the furniture, the air conditioner was damaged with a baseball bat and didn't work. I didn't have the nerve to even look at the bathroom. I went back down to check-in and said "I can't stay here". No questions asked, refunded on the spot but the hold on my credit card stayed for three days.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2008

Good motel for the money. you have to leave a $5.00 deposit on the key and remote. So I can only guess there normal clients. Would stay here again. Only thing I can complain about is that they had no Internet.

We stayed in this motel in 2000 and again in 2006. Both times for the fiesta and found that in 2006 it had improved in the cleanliness but still had old cars etc making it look a bit rundown. The room we stayed in could have done with a coat of paint, but what do you expect for the price.
The reception was helpfull and we will be staying for this years fiesta.

Stayed October 2006
