Have stayed here several times over the last few years. But won't do that again. Rooms very old and in need of a good cleaning and repair. Beds very uncomfortable, and breakfast terrible. And omg the birds everywhere, all around the pool area which was green and nasty.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. We are always in the process of repairing and upgrading our rooms. We would like to know which room you stayed in so that we can address these issues. As for the birds, they are an unfortunate part of nature that invade our city every year at this... More

Very helpful and obliging. As we has United Kingdom cellular phones the call charges were high in the USA. The hotel staff called the dude ranch on our behalf and arranged our next stay. Not sure why people feel the need to complain about just about anything.

Staff were absolutely wonderful, very friendly feel to the place. Our family (including our dog) had a great (and unexpected) 2 day stay while we waited for the roads to clear from the December 2015 blizzard. Rooms were clean and comfortable, a modest gym and laundry facility, and a well-stocked continental breakfast. The courtyard provided a great place to wear... More

I stayed in five hotels over a 14 night period and the Whitten Inn stands out as the worst by far. The hotel is at a major highway junction and guests are lulled to sleep by the ever present sound of vehicles passing. The hotel itself is a traditional motel configuration of rooms on two levels; our room was located... More

We are RV transporters who work full time over the road. We will usually steer away from motels that cater to truckers and people who do what we do because a lot of time, the places are not very nice. This Whitten Inn is an exception to that rule. The room was not huge, but plenty big enough, it was... More

Room was very clean & quite. One of the better rooms on our trip. Free wifi microwave refrigerator & coffee in the room. Also they had a continental breakfast available. Clerk was very friendly. I got a coupon on hotel coupons.com that made it a very reasonable rate. Bed & pillows were great also.

My husband and I stayed here in October 2015 with a group. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff was the best part. I always take my blankets from home when I travel because I don't like hotel blankets. Well, housekeeping fixed our bed with my own blankets! How awesome is... More

Room was clean, but front desk lady named Tish was a big flirt with my husband. She even gave him her number on a businness card. She asked if he wanted to park his car in front just because it was a nice car. Very unprofessional.
