Oddly enough, this hotel showed up on a list of recommended nearby hotels for an event I was attending in Estes Park, CO. The price seemed good and the description seemed reasonable - no frills but would suffice. I was wrong, and I ended up switching hotels for my last night. First - the room was actually dirty. I'm not... More

After reading the reviews the bar was set very low so I was pleasantly surprised that the room was not terrible. I got what I paid for more or less. It is a quirky set-up with metal keys, very few electrical outlets, a front desk that looks to be in perpetual disarray.

This motel was a little disappointing. One of our rooms only had one outlet in it so you had to choose between air conditioning or using the TV which required a cable box so it took up both outlet. None of the outlets had cover plates on them. I was traveling with 2 young kids so it was a little... More

My wife booked this hotel for two nights during the July 4th weekend (July 2-3) 2016. We were going to be a little late in checking in (12 am) and I called the hotel to make sure it's fine. The lady who picked up was very rude from the beginning and she told us she is going to be leaving... More

didn't even look open so old and run down but inside newer furniture and flat TV it actually had a decent bed and I guess for one night it is tolerable but not for the price we paid. the clerk was nice enough my key didn't have a fob or number on it. high security i guess :-)

Very outdated. Pronted signs in bathroom to not damage their towels with a penalty on your credit card. They don't take cash.. Seriously? With outdated electric, crappy, hard, full beds (not queen or king) for a couple (talk about cramped) at $100/night. The owner told me to park in front of my room which was on the grass. I did...

I booked this room on short notice and while driving, everywhere else was booked (according to booking.com), we arrived to a run down dump, empty swimming pool, old tvs stacked up on sidewalk, our room door left open and the room was a complete mess, it had not been cleaned, we asked for and received a refund with no problem,...

Was scared to stay here after reading the reviews! But I stayed 3 nights and was pleased overall for the price. It is definitely not the place to stay if you are looking for a hotel experience, but it had 2 comfortable beds with clean sheets, and a hot shower. It also had a microwave and fridge, which I wasn't... More

Awful hotel. We stayed only one night. First, we were charged twice for our one night stay and it took a week to get our refund. There was a small hole in the window where air whistled in all night. All the towels and linens were dirty. We used our own towels and slept in our sleeping bags on top... More
