very clean rooms. friendly staff/owner. nice location. nearby gas station,and very close to the lrestaurant's. even a bank across the street... plus the view....next time im visiting in town.. the desert view is where im booking my stay.
When I pulled into the parking lot without a reservation I said to myself..."This is the place!" The pride of ownership shone through. It was well manicured and immaculate. When the manager offered to show me a room before I committed I declined, saying I know it's going to be nice! And itI was. These old motor motels are my favorite. Park right in front of your door. Easy to unload and load your vehicle, and watch your car too. But they are an old school thing, and often times haven't been kept up. Not here! I never asked the bill of fare, so when the manager ran my card and presented me with the bill I nearly fell over. It was half the price of what I expected it to be. I will always return to this motel when in T or C. Even if they raise the rent!!!! The room was spacious, and even included a walk in closet. Note to traveler; coffee pot is provided, but bring your own coffee. The rooms have small patios and tables and chairs for sitting outside. Also a BBQ area.…
A great place to stay. Your first impression will be that this motel is older. You're right. The furnishings will remind you of yesteryear. BUT, everything is immaculate clean. Everything works. The cooler kept the room very cool, even when it was blisteringly hot outside. The room also had ceiling fans which work quite well. And the beds were VERY comfortable. It was like a step back in to my youth, travelling with Mom and Dad, and we were finally old enough to get our own room. It was great! The owner? What can I say? Probably one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Would I recommend staying here? Yes. Definitely. No frills, but a great place to stay if you want to be in T or C.
We arrived later in the evening but were checked in quickly and efficiently. The guy who checked us in was a laugh riot and very friendly. Enjoyed the accommodations very much. Check out was just as easy.
My bandmate and I had a fantastic and very comfortable night at the Desert View. Lovely room, views, and extremely friendly and courteous hostess helped us get settled in. The room was very clean and quiet and the beds were very comfortable. I will definitely be back!
