The room was fine for the price...decor was a bit outdated. The toiletries were not positive. I reviewed the hotel prior to booking however was not thoroughly impressed. The room was dark and I did not feel comfortable opening the drapes because people parking or walking by could see inside...was not satisfied with the breakfast. We came and there was... More

This was a very nice hotel, pet friendly and very reasonable priced. Good hot free breakfast. All rooms are inside with sliding doors to outside. Our room was outside facing pool which was nice for our pet. Recommend this hotel on Route 66.

We had a quiet and clean room. The room comes with a sliding patio door, but needed a screen. There were other areas that needed a little TLC. The price was ok and included breakfast. Good TV programming, but a schedule would have been helpful.

We stayed here on our way between Death Valley and Calico Ghost Town (before heading to LA). The premises are welcoming and the staff very friendly and helpful.

We stayed 2 nights and were very comfortable. The room was very çlean and very well equipped. There is a laundry and the detergent was complimentary. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was an excellent breakfast including waffles, hot food and fresh fruit. Highly recommended.

First motel we found after the heat of the Arizona-California desert.We paid $75 for one night Our room had French windows and a terrace with a picnic table near the swimming pool. Large and well-equiped room with comfortable beds but the carpet was not very clean and the walls were very thin. This motel definitely needs refreshing but it remains... More

Good stop when traveling between Arizona / Utah National Parks and Northern California. Perfect value for money. Pool was excellent as well as breakfast (I would only recommend one more toster to avoid queueing).

Large room with all the amenities I would expect. They upgraded us to a king bed which we appreciated. It was a little firmer than I like but was perfect for my girlfriend. Breakfast included scrambled eggs and sausage which is beyond the usual free breakfast.
