From the outside, it looks like a newly remodeled place. We just needed a place to stay while traveling through so just wanted something nice but cheap. Every thing was good until we went into the bathroom. It was gross. I wouldn't take a shower in there. I would not stay here again.

I have stayed here before and have enjoyed every visit. The Guest House Motel is on route 66, which is cool, and the price is great. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. I will stay here again.

Clean and quiet, with no problems. I didn't like the slow internet, but I didn't expect great internet here. There was a fridge and a microwave. They worked. The night I was here, on a Thursday, work crews were using the hotel. All in all, just a good place to crash for the night. Glad I found it. Front desk... More

I feel this place is a great bargain. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean. Walking distance to many diners and such. Towels clean and even fluffy. The public laundry was even reasonably priced,

A regular smallish route 66 motel. If you want more go to a chain motel and pay more. Once the door was shut it was quiet. It was on the dirty side, but I always bring my cleansing towels and clean everything from handles to pictures. Within walking distance of everything you might want to do. Only shower worked. If...

This traditional motel is on Route 66 close to the center of Carthage town. Within walking distance of the pubs, diners and coffee shops which cluster around the historic main square. Very reasonably priced and basic, comfortable room.
