Big Springs Motel, was the worst place I have ever stayed. First...they do not allow ANY cancellations.. The room is so small you can barely turn around in it. The carpet was damp, from the refrigerator leaking, and air conditioner condensation. The 'SMELL' of cat pee, and nasty body odor is almost enough to gag you. The TV cable did... More

We stopped in for the night. The room has wood everywhere, which I absolutely love. The price was very reasonable. I would have loved a coffeepot in the room but for the price I totally understand. Jim the owner was very polite and knowledgeable of the area. The lounge was very reasonable as well. We would go back for sure.

We stayed at the motel, because our motorhome was not yet in summer mode. At a rate lower than many campgrounds we got a large room with the typical amenities (incl. free Wifi). Everything was clean, there is plenty of parking, the night was quiet. and across the parking lot they run a bar with some snacks available.

This roadside motel was surprisingly comfortable, refrigerator and microwave worked, but don't expect much more than that. The carpeted floors were probably the dirtiest I've seen in a rental, and the bed sheets looked like they likely didn't get agitated enough in the wash machine as there were some hairs in the bed. The sheets smelled clean, so I figure... More

This is a quirky little roadside motel with a small bar (lounge) locate across the parking lot attached to the motel office and a funny little shuttle bus parked at the motel for picking up and dropping off any "drinkers". The motel room itself was surprisingly comfortable and quiet. As for clean...well, the carpeted floors were probably the dirtiest I've... More

Big Spring Road Motel is exactly what you would expect from a road side motel. Nothing extravagant but it had decent beds, clean and quiet(considering the bar was just across the way, which was convenient). It was very hot when we were there and I was worried the air conditioner wouldn't keep up but it kept the room nice and... More

If you don't bring your own toiletries or hair dryer then this place is not for you. Since we do, I would much rather stay in a place like this! This brought back fond memories of traveling across country with our 2 sons back in the 80's/90's. Negatives were fiddling with the AC and learning how to turn off the... More

Girlfriend week of floating and ole' Jim came through again for a motel room. He told us during the week is the best time because the river is not crowded and neither is the motel. He was absolutely right. Our room was big enough with two beds, had a little kitchen that we could cook in and a table to... More
