Not bad for the low price. It seemed a little sketchy looking from the outside, but the room was decent. You get what you pay for! Definitely a small town motel without any amenities - other than free wifi. My husband and I only stayed for one night on our way to Denver, so it worked for us.

It was cheap and available when nobody else in town had vacancies. This is a classic roadside motel right out of the 70s. The amenities are clean but dated. Some of the mis-matched towels look at least 30 years old. I took a non-smoking room, but it smelled like it was a smoking room they tried to clean. And the... More

The only thing I can say is, if you are in dire need of a place to stay a night because you have been driving all day and are exhausted.....drink a Red Bull and keep driving. This place is some sort of no tell motel for trysts. The room was so small, at 5 feet 10 inches I could reach... More

At first glance the motel grounds and the room were a step up from last night's Motel 6, everything was clean and the furniture and bathroom were less old and worn. Wifi worked well ... I wish I could say the same about everything else but I decided to take a shower before bed and found the water never got... More

We got in after 0130 a.m. so it's not that big of a deal but had I needed a place to stay and use facilities I recommend staying somewhere else for 15$ extra. Their website says continental breakfast but they only have coffee, their room had a strong odor masked by room freshner. Their pool and hot tubs are closed... More

We were surprised that the name had changed since our last visit, but the value price and clean comfortable room was still the same. This time we did have a noisy neighbor and found that the phone even woke us from the neighboring room for their early morning wake up call. I would ask for an end room if possible.

I had no major complaints about my stay. We stayed in a non-smoking king room on the bottom floor. It was clean. Everything worked. The only thing I saw wrong with the room was the bathtub faucet dripped.

The service was very bad upon check in, and the rooms were not very nice. You get what you pay for, and it was somewhat cheap. They did not even have hot water for tea in the morning, but I'm not sure I would even trust them to make hot water. I cannot recommend this place... spend a few more... More

Stayed here one night while visiting niece in college. I was not impressed overall. The rooms were clean, but dark. The toilet stool made a terrible noise when flushed. The ad said breakfast, but the clerk said that they have never served breakfast. My advice would be to stay at a littler higher quality motel and save yourselves the price... More

On our way to Colorado,we decided to stay in Hays for the night. We were looking for a cheap room and this was it. All I can say is, you get what you pay for. Everything looked clean and it was quite. I didn't care for the mattress, I thought it was too firm. The room had a mini fridge,... More
