This is not a fancy hotel. It's a budget, Mom and Pop operation that could use some maintenance here and there. Typical low end motel with rooms that open to the outside, no elevator. Rooms are not fancy but ours had a microwave, small fridge, and a table/chairs. It's inexpensive and it's a good place to crash if you're just... More

This is a small "mom & pop" motel in Fruita CO. We were apprehensive as to what we would find at this late hour. It was a pleasant surprise. The room was comfortable and clean with all of the usual amenities. The feature that stood out was the very nice decor. It had the touch of creativity in very good... More

We came here on a whim on our drive to Denver from LA, when we decided it was just too rainy to camp. We were very happy with this Inn. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable, there was a fridge and microwave, and a large bathroom. Room had... More

Why can't there be more places like this? This little inn is perfect for a family with 4 kids. We were able to get a room with 3 queen beds which is pretty much impossible to find. The room was super clean. Nice little continental breakfast with freshly boiled eggs! The owners were very friendly and helpful. Awesome stay!

Older style 2 storey motel with very long staircase (if you have mobility issues make sure to ask for ground floor). Room was large king and was very comfortable and clean. Only downside was an airconditioner with vents which could not be adjusted so not great for the person sleeping closest. Close to rail line and not far from the... More

This place is nothing special but it is clean, well located, and affordable. The owners are nice helpful people, and it's right across the street from a park. My only complaint was that the AC unit blew directly on the bed and even with the fan on the lowest setting I felt like I was in a wind tunnel all... More

We were on the second floor and it was clean and comfortable. Bed was big and good to sleep on. Bathroom not huge but it worked well. It was good to have a bike wash and parking. I would stay here again. Just bring your own breakfast. The owners were really friendly and helpful.
