Needed a "bed" for along the way on our road trip. Called this little motel and got a great rate! Traveling with another couple, so we got 2 rooms- Rooms were awesome! Had a king bed, table and chairs and looked recently remodeled. Was by far, the best for the $$ on our whole trip. Missed out on the breakfast... More

Stayed here 3 nights during a mountain bike trip and wish I could rate it even higher than excellent ..the owners and motel were awesome! Walking distance to city center, bike cleaning area, clean rooms with microwave and mini fridge, and super friendly owners!

This is a motel located on the western end of the main drag in Fruita, convenient to the interstate, downtown restaurants & shopping, and within a few miles of the western entrance to the Colorado National Monument. The rooms are well appointed and appear to have been recently remodeled. Our room had two queen beds, desk, table, two chairs, TV,... More

A wonderful stay! A quiet little inn, very well maintained. After a long motorcycle ride I was ready to relax. Upon opening the door, I was delighted. Homey and so clean it shined. I highly recommend this hotel and the price was beyond great.

We stayed one night at this motel and what a surprise. I had booked only one room but the owner was able to get us two rooms which suited us better. He was very helpful and pleasant and the price he quoted was amazing. The room was extremely clean and comfortable, it did look as if it had been recently... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor and looking for a reasonably priced hotel we booked the Balanced Rock. Met our top three criteria (clean, quiet, safe). If asked what I would like to see different, night stands on both sides of the bed with lamps that have plug ins on their bases for cell phones. Would stay there again... More

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.
