My husband and I booked a non-smoking room; when we opened the door, the smell of old smoke hit us in the face like a brick and I literally had to go outside to breathe after spending 5 minutes in the room. It was terrible. My husband went and complained to the office, and they moved us to another room. That one was a little better, but this is clearly a 1 star motel. It reminds me of a crack house....mainly because there were multiple meth-head looking folks sitting outside when we were checking in. The name "420 Motel" should have been a dead ringer, but that wasn't mentioned anywhere on Expedia. Also, we didn't get any sleep because the owner/manager/guy who checked us in, was so high on something that he and someone got into a yelling match/fight at 2am. Needless to say, shortly after that, my husband and I packed up our stuff and left. Do yourself a favor and SAVE YOUR MONEY. Anything over $15 for a room here is highway robbery...

Back in ‘17, I booked, stayed, wrote a review, so we’re up-to-date. Owning property in Trinidad, I had to visit, to seal a deck & remove “cooler covers”. I took off, “after getting the job started”, & checked-in, I got the suite I had back in 2017, by special request, even. #10 , was the only former, formal “420 suite” / no tobacco consumption allowed (sign on door) - now, all 420 rooms.... I turned on the A/C, then went back to my piece of paradise! #10 has the best view of the illuminating TRINIDAD sign. #10 everything worked correctly (ac required a power strip), no biggie-that’s why I checked-in early. #10 Shower was always hot. When I complimented, Chris, the same manager, from 2017, how much the Downtown Motel Improved, Chris said, “thanks”, “it’s a work in progress” . and it’s a cool place to utilize, even without animals. The pic is a direct, “improvement suggestion”, I first made back ‘17! Keep partying, it’s “springtime in the Rockies” , “everyone plant your weed”! Thank you, NASCAR

We arrived in town very late after a long drive and that is the ONLY reason I did not dip out of this place. I’m pretty laid back but I do ask that if I’m paying to stay in a room I don’t have to clean the shower myself and still need to wear flip flops to shower because only ONE washrag was provided. The bed didn’t have bugs, but did have burn holes and was only held up by cinder blocks. One small heater that didn’t work and the shower takes ten minutes to get warm. AVOID THIS PLACE!

I knew I was paying for a basic service, but this place was not fit to be offered at all. We were charged upon arrival, but no receipt was offered in spite of my request. We stayed in the property as long as 5 min, since it was the filthiest I have ever seen, with a broken window mended with tape, a peeled off sink, no heat on, one towel for three, paper thin walls, nothing at all like the photos posted. We notify the landlady and she said she would be returning our money, however, my credit card was charged anyway. Worst experience in a lifetime of traveling.

The Downtown Motel is a very tired mid-century motel. It was clean, the bed is a little worn, plenty of low-pressure hot water and fresh-smelling,surprisingly thick towels. Billed as 420 friendly, our room was a 420 suite. The desk clerk was a certified stoner. “Yeah, we had ice but I gave it all to my friends.” The long term residents had a cookout but were reasonably quiet. Not a hint of the promised wifi. The Continental breakfast was also a no show despite signs telling me to enjoy a snack. No coffee plugs for the coffee machine. But Tony’s Diner is just down the street. Pretty much what I expected for sixty bucks. But I think I‘ll opt for Trail’s end for my next visit.
