3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This hotel was a little off I 40. Closer to downtown which I considered a plus. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The beds were very comfortable. The air conditioner worked but was older. Very clean with a nice indoor pool. Be sure to eat at Del's when you stay here. It was great.

We had visited this location years ago, when it was operating as Microtel, and folks familiar with that chain will recognize the same overall layout. Our room's microwave and fridge had been moved into the closet to free up some floor space. Fine for us, but if you plan to actually hang anything in the closet, you may need to... More

The front desk person was so very helpful and pleasant. The bed's were comfortable and the room was clean. The breakfast was good and filled us up. Had to give an average rating because the room did need some repairs. Decent price and location.

I stayed here with my husband and child for one night. We loved playing in their pool. The morning staff all were eating breakfast when we came in and they weren't doing anything. The manager / owner walked in and they hopped to it and started working. The breakfast was a little lacking but was ok for the price. My... More

I selected this hotel for the rate and the rating of the breakfast on another site. Other than the low rate, it had little going for it. The hallways were not air conditioned. The rooms weren't either, until we turned it on. The refrigerator had to be plugged in to use it. The toilet paper was tissue thin. The soap... More

Stayed there in July, 2016 while on our way back from southwest Colorado. I just needed to find a nice clean place at a good value. This place was exactly that. It was a very pleasant stay. Rooms are very nice. You cannot beat the value. Very clean and convenient to I-40. The place is modern and parking is easy.

Very clean and pet friendly. When we walked in we realized the room power was not on had to have front desk reset the breaker (the lack of a/c have the room a humid feeling). Friendly staff and helpful met our needs. Great location near historic Route 66.

We stayed here for one night on our way home. It was very easy to book in advance and easy to find. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a smoking hotel with some non smoking rooms. We were able to get what we asked for but paid extra for first floor. This was necessary because they don't have... More
