Like other reviewers, this is an ok place to stay, for a stopover. I found the guy who checked us in a bit surly, and not helpful. The fridge did work, and the A/C worked, but on noisy side. Furnishings and decor were worn and room not really clean, but adequate (use flip flops to walk around in!) Had to... More

We were traveling from LA to Vegas and this was a good place for a short break. I booked the room through Hotels.com. When I arrived, we realized I accidentally booked for the following night. The staff was very accommodating and made a quick change and adding an additional $15 to the total. We were tired and just needed a... More

Not the most clean, new or comfortable place I've ever stayed, but really cheap and met our needs for a night on the road. We didn't want to spend much, just an overnight bed and it was quite adequate and the owners were courteous and we had a snack before we took off in the morning. Not a destination hotel,... More

Very friendly reception and one of the fastest internets we have encountered at a US motel. However the room was shabby, dilapidated with unsafe door ( door didn't close properly ) and the bathroom was not clean. Bed was however comfortable and clean. Use if no other option !

This was a very clean motel. The rooms were big, and the manager /owner was very nice and helpful. We found nothing to complain about, and the rate for our room, 2 queen beds, was the most affordable rate we encountered during our trip from Tennessee. I would definitely recommend this motel to family and friends.

It could be a good choice if little details could be done.... They should clean the doors of the room and bleach the bathroom. The beds are good and sheets clean. Few towels but for a night, it's enough. We went to Cafe Village for dinner according to the comments of Tripadvisor. A real good dinner in a very typical... More

Booked into this hotel not realising we had used it the year before until owner recognised us. Once again not the Ritz but as the title suggests great for those on a budget. Coffee and pastry type thingy available for breakfast at reception. Only downer was old noisy air con but better than none at 100 degrees
