Check in was fine with a friendly host. The wifi was broken according to the host, but oh well. Room looked fine. Then .... The bathroom door wouldn't unlock so it had to stay open. Hmmm. Thought it wasn't such a big deal. Later turned on the heat and it wouldn't stop running. Sounded like a wind tunnel. We finally... More

Be ready to be greeted by Maurice & Anna who will make you feel right at home. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and each is equipped with a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave oven. They always wait up for me to make sure I've made it, no matter how late the night.

A different sort of place that’s not for everyone. For a grand total less than $50, I was feeling pretty flexible. Owned by a family who appear to live on site, and who did all they could to make my stay comfortable. Seems like quite a few people live in this tiny motel, and the owners appear highly receptive to... More

This is a very nice mom and pop motel with a really nice owner. Family run. Very accommodating and dog friendly...Great place for birders at the awesome reservoir. You can't bring dogs in but can walk around the roads outside the reservoir in the country with your doggies.. Amazing number of birds just lovely.

We have stayed at this mom and pop motel several times now, with the most recent, last weekend. We travel to Dodge City about twice a year and this is a nice half way point to stop. Nothing fancy, just nice, quiet and clean. Great place for our pup also. The manager is always very accomodating and lets us have... More

I found this motel to be a great surprise so don't let the age of the building deter you. The rooms have been remodeled and have great airconditioners. The management is friendly and very pleasant to work with. They are dog friendly so bring the pooch. I would stay here again if I were in the area.

My wife, kids, and I stayed here for about a week. The rooms had been revamped since we last stayed here 8 years ago. Our stay then was good but the rooms are definitely better now. Just an FYI, the manager has a dog which came out to greet us when we arrived. The dog is friendly and harmless. The... More
