Rooms might be clean at best. Carpet made you want to keep your socks on. Ran out of hot water every shower. Air conditioner kinda works, and remember to jiggle the handle on the toilet. Rooms are furnished by Goodwill and remind you of your first apartment. Positive is that it is better than a tent. Not super expensive and...

Check in process didn't include a hello, welcome, or much of any communication. The clerks shirt was stained and dirty and the smell of curry was so strong you would think you were in an Indian restaraunt. The rooms heater was not adjustable, all the knobs were removed. It did eventually come on and was tremendously loud. The TV was...

The guy at the front desk could certainly be a little more friendly-not rude but just not the smiling warm greeting you come to expect when traveling. The rooms were clean and spacious and the A.C. worked good. No breakfast of any kind in the morning so figure on driving somewhere else to eat. The office was supposed to be...

Some people who run motels, should not be in the hospitality industry. We were hard pressed to get three words out of the desk clerk. A lot of grunting and one word sentences. Overall this place if at the lower end of the price range and as far as that goes not bad for the price. A/C worked fine, water...

I would guess you pretty much get the same options at all the hotels. The bed was very comfortable; pillows (2) not so much, but that's ok because I always bring my own rather than depend on what's available. I appreciate that there was a microwave, refrigerator and table with chairs. It would probably be worth it to the owner...

Our family of 3 stayed for 1 night. When we first drove up I was hesitant about staying. Mainly due to their competitor down the street looked really busy and in comparison Prospector Inn parking area was completely empty. When I checked in nobody was there. There's a note telling you to push a yellow button for assistance. Which took...

Our visit was a disaster from the reservation process through trying to check in and finally trying to get a refund. The reservation clerk spoke very poor English and wasn't very professional. Upon arrival on a 90 degree day, the lobby was not air-conditioned. That made it very difficult to wait the full fifteen minutes it took for someone to...

Despite slightly dated rooms, this hotel has modern amenities travelers expect: in-room coffee, fridge, microwave, lots of towels, spacious rooms, good wi-fi, breakfast included for very reasonable prices. Our room is quieter than last night's room in a major chain hotel. A great bargain in a small but cute town. Friendly office personnel.

An old building (as are most buildings in this western themed town) but the room was in good shape, clean and incredibly spacious. I mean huge. Friendly staff. Quiet. I slept like a baby. I have stayed here before and would stay again.
