I've stayed here two different times for work travel and it is a nice hotel. The staff there is very nice and professional. I live on in the road about 2 weeks a month and normally stay in big motels, but there aren't any here. I sure don't mind staying there and I will continue to every time I drive... More

I cannot say enough about the Tip Top Motel! Dawn and the staff were more than accommodating during my lengthly stay. I travel for work and this is by far the best motel i've stayed in! The rates were more than reasonable and the staff was always thoughtful and courteous. I stayed in one of the freshly renovated rooms that... More

Passing through visiting family.. I stayed in remodeled room which was clean, cozy and slightly updated. My experience with the staff and management was great made me feel welcome even though I could see they had a lot going on. They also had great Wi-Fi. Best of all in the morning there is a continental breakfast with homemade muffins.. You... More

I had requested an upstairs room when I made my reservation. When I arrived they gave me keys for a downstairs room right on the corner where all the motel guests had to walk by. After a brief discussion, they moved my upstairs. Went up to my room-the door was unlocked and all the lights were on. So I asked... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. They never cleaned it the entire time we were there, we had to repeatedly call for new towels, our TV didn't work... And it was ridiculously overpriced! I gave this review a 1 star, only because a 0 star rating isn't available. Go elsewhere if you can!

Not clean. Would not stay again. Carpet had not been vacuumed for many stays. Filthy. Bathroom had two dead bugs. One bed appeared to have been used. Went over for breakfast and apparently manager came out all disheveled stretching and appearing to have just crawled out of bed. Could not eat there. Coffee was good. Price should have provided a...

Stayed at the tip top for work and I'm glad I chose it! The staff is cool, when I got off a long day of work the beds were made and there was a fresh thing of towels ! Staff always made sure if there was something we needed it was taken care of. I'll defiantly tell more people to... More

We spent the night there because my husband to collect this state had to sleep in North Dakota. Under new management, Mary and her husband were very friendly. Comfortable bed, quiet room, great tv reception. Don't expect the Hilton or LaQuinta, but a nice old timey motel. Eat at the steakhouse, steaks delicious. Best wishes to Mary and her husband!

Door inside and also on the outer side. Huge room. Had a chair and ottoman in there, too! A desk/chair. Good wifi. Tub, fridge, micro. Cute place, nice person at the desk. There were a few flies, not sure where they came from. The furnishings were a little nicer than we'd expect for a room in the middle of nowhere... More

I stayed here two nights, a Friday and Saturday night, for a total of $141.02. The motel is very easy to find, has plenty of parking space, was very clean, and there were multiple choices for the Tip Top Guests high speed Internet WiFi which I found to be the BEST aspect of this motel. The hot water is definitely... More
