The motel is on the exit of Highway, you will find it easily. But most of all, the room is VERY clean and fresh. It is really a good rest place after long trip. When we check in, they asked if we had supper or not, it impressed me a lot.

As I write, I am replete with the fine hot breakfast: a square of sausage egg casserole, one biscuit with cream gravy, an airy iced cinnamon roll, and coffee. Scout had a sausage, egg, and cheese on English muffin sandwich, which he found filling. The Japanese women who sat near us had tiny pancakes with syrup. A guest with a... More

Nice clean rooms, comfortable beds, not at all smelly. Has rooms for LARGE parties of 5 or 6 as well as smaller rooms. HOME COOKED BREAKFAST! Not just cookies or donuts and coffee or "continental" but a REAL BREAKFAST! We were SUPER IMPRESSED! I WOULD stay at THIS hotel again given half the chance. I recommend it MORE than any... More

While traveling east, my husband and I stayed at Gerry's Motel on two different nights. The rooms were clean, pets were allowed, but the best part was the 'free' continental breakfast. Everything was homemade; cinnamon rolls, eggs/potato sausage casserole, biscuits and gravy, burritos, pancakes, as well as prepackaged oatmeal and cold cereal, orange juice, milk, coffee. Very friendly, down home... More

This was the last hotel we stayed in on our way back from Yellowstone. It was also the cheapest, we paid less than $70 for a double room. For a one night along the highway it was okay. Our room smelled sort of funky when we arrived but all was otherwise clean. The owner was friendly and helpful, and also... More

We loved that the local gas station, restaurant & bar were literally feet away from this place. The rooms were very clean & our 3 bed room was spacious enough to do a cartwheel in! We were blown away by the generous breakfast buffet in the morning. Biscuits & gravy, breakfast burritos, breakfast bowl fixings, blueberry pancakes & other pastries... More

We stayed here one night on our trek west for the summer. Found a reasonable rate on trip advisor. Our room had 2 comfortable double beds. Fridge, micro, cable tv and Internet included. Home made breakfast that had plenty of choices. Ice for purchase. No smoking rooms. Plenty of parking. Bird cleaning station behind the hotel for hunters. Dogs welcome.... More

This is a nice motel. Our room was clean, bed was very comfortable, bathroom worked well. The listing says "continental breakfast," but that typically means a minimal offering (rolls, bread, juice, maybe donuts), but this was considerably more. They cooked up a egg bake (with sausage and potatoes) when we were there, and they also had breakfast sandwiches with egg... More

Don't judge a book by its cover! (like we did) We regularly stay at Hampton Inn but after discovering it was booked for the night we decided to stop here ... Pleasant surprise! Clean room, good prices, lots of parking and home-town friendly service. The bonus was the free homemade breakfast and coffee in the morning! We would stay here... More

The room was very clean. This is an older motel but is very well maintained. We had a king bed on the ground floor and with the senior rate it was very reasonably priced!! We arrived a little late and unfortunately had to leave early so we missed their breakfast but when we checked in the very friendly lady at... More
