Such a high quality of service and attention to details. The staff was amazing the rooms spacious, comfortable and clean! Free Wi-Fi, comfortable bed, large TV. Bathroom has a separate sink in there, as well as a sink outside of the bathroom. Also, the room had a fairly sizable fridge and microwave - Quiet location. Will definitely be staying here again!

While there is some decay in the air with this motel ("old" smell in the room, scratched walls), it charged me only $70 a night - price rare these days. I had pretty large room and comfortable bed, large TV. Bathroom has a separate sink in there, as well as a sink outside of the bathroom. Also, the room sported both fairly sizable fridge (bigger than in most hotels) and microwave - combination hard to find even in more expensive hotels. Will definitely stay here next time I am in town.

My room was large, comfortable and quiet. Trains do blow for a crossing across the highway but it didn't disturb me while sleeping. Good free internet, a lot of TV channels Not a lot is around motel, but it is a short drive to Walmart, hospital, convenience stores and places to eat; small but good Chinese restaurant a short drive away as well as a nice railroad museum and a displayed steam locomotive. I stayed there for over 2 weeks in October and I didn't see any of the conditions others have listed; I would gladly stay there again.

The plumbing was slow took forever to drain the sink and toilet flushes slow. It was the smell that got to me. Like old swimming pool chemicals. Made my eyes water and I coughed all night. Thought price was high for what it was.

Response from RAW905, Owner at El Rancho Motel
Responded Mar 17, 2017
We made every attempt to make our customers happy. We have remodeled the entire motel with new windows, siding, and new linen and new 39 inch flat screen TV' s and new lobby. Each room now has a refrigerator and microwave. New management. Unfortunately customers are not going to be happy no matter what we did. We take pride on what we have done to improve the look of the El Rancho Motel but guest do flush things that should not be flushed, the rooms are clean but we don" t know about toilets speed on less you tell the front desk manager and the maintenance crew can fix it, There are no pool chemicals as there is no pool in this motel. It is truly a shame that customers rate the place by such poor experience. A simple talk to front desk could have fixed it all. Bad reviews really heart a business for such little things. that could have been fixed on the spot. We hope to have you again at the Motel and we are very proud of what we provide here.
