Don’t believe the web site. The rooms are old and plain but adequate if everything else is full, but don’t expect to receive the little extras as advertized. The Indian? proprietor answered our door bell ring without a shirt and with a very heavy accent that was hard to understand. No working ice machine, but the proprietor pointed to a... More

Located close to Sonora caverns. Clean and safe, satisfying my two requirements. Rooms have fridge, micro and TV. Nothing at all fancy. Reminded me of typical motels in the 50's. Assume pool available in warm weather. Currently drained. Cereal, coffee, juice and toast provided for breakfast.

Pool without water, cost of room and charge for reservation excessive compared with other motels, not professionally operated: eg went for coffee at 8 am as scheduled, door locked. Total cost of the room plus res fee should be $30-40 less to be competitive; and don't advertise "pool" with no water. Low rent situation with high rent fees.

Having read the previous comments they seem a bit harsh I completed a charity cycle ride from Miami, FL to San Francisco, CA and stopped her for a nights rest - personally I had no problems with the motel or the staff Yes the rooms are basic/need of refurbishment, I didn't see or experience any bed bugs and the mattress...

Driving late into Sonora we had poor cellular signal on IH 10 so I didn't motel check reviews. During check-in, the attendants hardly communicated even when I asked about the $50 advertised price. The room was clean with a retro look to it and cool yellow bathroom tile, but the configuration was a different bed layout. This layout created a... More

We were ok with the price at first even though the rooms are dark and small, the bed was EXTRA firm and old, and the pool we wouldn't have been swimming in anyway has a foot of green sludge in it. Room did appear to be clean. And THEN came the morning and the bed bug revealed why my husband... More

After reading the negative reviews, I had a careful look at the room before I checked in. It was everything but fancy and modern, however it seemed ok to sleep for one night. There was a bed with clean linen, the bath was ok and the room generally tidy. So I checked in. The really noisy A/C could be turned... More

Called to cancel reservation, and owner stated no problem. I have received bill and they will not credit my account. Low score is justified. These are not honest people. I had spoken with the front desk who transferred me to the owner who said they would take care of it.

I have to start by saying I am very used to staying in budget hotels on the road. My husband and I spend 50-60 nights per year in hotels and this was the worst hotel I have stayed at in the past 20 years. We were just looking for a place to crash on our way home from Austin and... More
