A pretty decent facility for the middle of nowhere. The hotel rooms were a little older decoration inside, but pretty spacious and clean. The slot machine casino across the street had a few people playing at most hours. The bartender was friendly and things seemed pretty affordable. Enjoyed the cafe atmosphere restaurant. American homestyle food. On the main highway through... More

Rooms are okay and in a type like nearly all hotels or inns. The casino restaurant serves really good breakfast and dinner offering a good selection! The staff is friendly and polite, drinks at the bar cheap.

I stayed here June 2016, and would like to recommend this hotel to fellow travelers. At $63 for a semi-remodeled (I think fully remodeled is $73) room, it is definitely a good deal. Ate at the restaurant which had decent food. There's a lot of history here if you're interested. Also recommend visiting the Ordnance Museum up the block. Very... More

Just got back from the Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at the El Capitan using this as our base camp for a group 4x4 trip. The rooms were very clean and large they have just completed remodeling the rooms. So very comfortable beds and all the things that you need for a good stay. The restaurant is very good, but...

I only stayed at this place because I was with a friend who mistakenly heard that it was a great place... He was absolutely wrong. The motel would have been a good deal at $35 -$45 maximum. As it was, they wanted $81 plus tax for a single person. If you like paying a lot and getting a little, this... More

We stay here at least once a month. With the new remodel the rooms are really good. The front desk is always fun, nice ,and helpful. For Truckers delivering to the base and staying till monday the $33.00 per night cant be beat. Right behind the Casino wich by the way is under remodel as well. Luck to You.

For an older room it is very cozy. It has a microwave and refrigerator. I can't give more than average because it is pretty average rooms with holder furniture. I also noticed they are in the process of upgrading. If use this property in the future, which I will. I do recommend.

Every other time we stay here it is either good or bad! This time was bad! The room was filthy...just gander behind the enormous piece of furniture that houses the dinky TV or look at the carpet or smell the too strong perfume scent of the room deodorizer! The carpet should be replaced with laminate floors and try cleaning the... More
