This motel comprises two rows of units, with parking directly outside. I stayed for just one night while driving Route 66. The room was tastefully decorated and clean, but I found a single, long, dark hair under the bedspread when I pulled it back. The bed was firm but comfortable, and the shower had good pressure and temperature control. The... More

This motel is so clean and modern! Swimming pool which is great after a long day in the heat, good wifi connection. Bed is so comfy and bed linen is nice and fresh, feels like new. Microwave, coffee facilities and fridge in the room were a real help as we could do our own dinner. The owner opened up the... More

If you are on low budget, this is great place to stay, and it's a good stay even if you are not on a low budget. I spent here one night on 30th september 2015 and didn't regret a minute. Had a room on the right side just in front of the first parking space, i guess it was #23.... More

This was the only place I could find on a Valentine night while on road trip. I booked while on the road and got there around 10PM. The guy at the concierge didn't seem very happy to see me but he did his job, took the payment and gave a key. The place is very old and it can use... More

First, my receipt says River Valley Inn, but the address is right so I guess it's the same place. Old & run-down but reasonably clean. There was a lot of dust however on the HVAC unit and the top of the headboard. Quiet--slept a lot better than we probably would have at one of the bigger places. Mattress was a... More

This is a great place for the money... not new but well kept. Room clean, Bed comfortable. Furniture a little old, rug too but it all works. We used our tablet to help us find it. Manager friendly. Towels looked like they couid stand to be bleached. I'm laboring on this to get to 200 words. Stay if you want... More

This unpretentious motel is fine for an overnight stay. It was certainly good value. Clean and spacious room, reasonably comfortable bed, plenty of hot water. Coffee in room only provided for one person, which was a disappointment. No breakfast provided or available.

This is exactly what you need when road tripping. It's clean. It's comfortable. The room is large and has everything you need. Fridge, tv, microwave and coffee machine. An ice maker by reception and wifi. The host is lovely and I would recommend this place to everyone

We haven't even been in more than an hour and I can tell you this is one of the nicest motels there are. The carpet is freshly vacuumed. The bathroom is very clean, especially the toilet. Large fridge. Satelite tv and internet works great. Again, very nice place, at a bargain price. Must stay if you are in the area!

This was a last minute booking and I didn't spend the time I usually would having checked it out. That was a mistake! The staff were very unfriendly, the room was dirty, the area was dubious and the air-conditioning was terrible to control. We arrived and looking at the cars in the car park, I knew we had made a...
