We stayed there two nights to attend my wife's 55th class reunion. The rooms were small, shower was tiny but it was very clean and well kept. Beds were comfortable and we stayed 2 nights for the price of one at other motels in the area. Very satisfied. No amenities to speak of but a nice TV. Will stay here... More

Parking lot had not been plowed when I pulled in (good 3 inches). I knocked on the office door but no one answered. I sat in my truck for 15 mins but no one came back to reception. There was a dog barking and hollering like crazy from one of the guest rooms the whole time I was there. I... More

For some reason the motel's number wasn't on TripAdvisor when I tried to book, so I had to get it off Facebook. Come on, people -- TripAdvisor is supposed to make things easier. The motel is older but the rooms have been recently renovated with new carpet, bathroom fixtures, TV, etc. Free reliable room wi-fi. Room had fridge, micro and... More

Nice motel, very clean, comfortable beds, friendly owners. Was in Sandstone for a concert. Wonderful experience. A bit out of the 1970 era but very clean. Had a refrigerator, coffee, flat screen TV, air condtioner. Everything you needed. Will return if in that area again. Thanks for a great 2 day stay!

Making our first trip to visit family in Sandstone, we felt the other reviews were reasonable since it was just a 2 night stay and only 3 miles from our daily destination. As the other reviews stated the bed linens were clean and that is the BEST you can hope for. On day 2 of our stay, I was in... More

OK, lets speak frankly. If you are reading this review you probably have a loved one at FCI Sandstone that you are visiting, so, this place is perfect. It is half the cost of the next alternative and it is a real sleeper. Yes it has the outside appeal of a used cardboard box but inside you will have, nice... More

Sandstone's 61 Motel has been around for a long while, and the old-style 50's architecture and decor is unencouraging when one first pulls into the small parking lot. Many families, like myself, use the motel as an anchor for visits to family incarcerated at the local federal prison. The friendliness of the motel's operator, and some amenities in the rooms...

The check is was nice- proprietor helped me find my destination for the next day. Room was very basic, very clean, very safe (locks working). Nothing plush about it, but good solid value. Bring your own hairdryer and shampoo if you come here as there are no frills. Downtown is walking distance, and the downtown is a pretty cool downtown... More

the motel itself was very small and someone in that small town keyed our rental car.but the state parks around there do make up for it cause u can be there all day and then go back to sanstone 61 motel and just fall asleep and not see anything.
