In April, 2013 a group of us went on a river rafting trip to the Grand Canyon, and we used the Hotel Apsen before and after our trip. I booked in advance and got a discounted group rate on rooms. We got several of the 2 room queen suites, which were adjoining rooms, each with a queen bed and its own bathroom with a door separating the rooms for the price of one room. Sounded great until I got there. On the first night I stayed, the door that was separating the two rooms was clear glass french doors. That may have been great if the room had been occupied by a family with children, but many of us in the group didn't know each other. To have clear french doors occupying the space between our rooms didn't give either occupants any privacy at all. I continually asked when I was making the reservations if there was a door in between the rooms, and had I known that the "door" was see-through, I wouldn't have booked the room. We also had to go through the french door into the other room to go in and out as there was no exit door in our own room.
On our return stay after the Grand Canyon, however, the adjoining rooms were different. There was a regular door in between the rooms, and my room had it's own entry/exit door so that I didn't have to go into the adjoining room to go in and out.
The motel is old but clean, comfortable, and pretty quiet except for some train noise. I had a brief interaction with the front desk staff, and they were friendly and quick. I never had the breakfast or used any of the other services offered. The hotel was a little farther from "town" than I expected it to be, and is more convenient for those taking the train. We had a great breakfast at MartAnne's Cafe, which was a 10 minute walk away.
For an overnight stay, it was a good price and a good budget motel.
