clean comfortable and friendly staff !! only negative review is from a smoker who wanted a non smoking room but would stand outside and smoke with his door open. great room for the price. if you want a 5 star hotel don't stop in Hays ! a 3 star pay double for the Hampton inn.

If you ask me a good thing, I would say, their prices are around $5 less than competition. I am on a 1 week long stay. Prepaid for the stay, hence continuing. There were many empty rooms, but my request to move me to a nonsmoking room was turned down (the front office employee agreed, but apparently the owner-manager intervened... More

We stopped at two other hotels in the area and they were booked. So My daughter searched online and luckily found us a room here. Room was very clean and the bed was the most comfortable that we had throughout our stay. It was great. Staff was very friendly also.

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.
