I tried this place because everything else was very overpriced due to the Garth/Trisha concert. I'm glad I did. The room was very clean. AC worked well. Bed was super comfortable. It was a residential neighborhood, but i felt very safe and slept well. The only odd thing... If you are going to shower in the afternoon, you will have... More

I selected this motel because it was close to a workplace class I was taking. There is nothing special about the accommodations, but the room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. I had some problems with my first room and the desk clerk the first night (I stayed four nights). The next day the owner moved me to another... More

The rooms for nice and cheap. Not too far from downtown which perfect away from downtown commotion but only a 5 min drive away which was very convenient. Prices were great and rooms were great and comfortable. Definitely will come back to the place great hospitality from a generous staff. Very helpful to a stranger in town

Stayed here after reading great online reviews. However, discovered my gold necklace was stolen during the weekend. Told the front desk; they did nothing. Anyone who employs a thief does NOT deserve my business... or yours. Beware!

I found the Matador motel by asking a guy at a gas station. When I asked him if he knew where I could find a decent and inexpensive motel close by, He immediately answered, "Dude, go to the Matador Inn, I'd even send you there if you was lookin' for a nice hotel!" My first thought was this guy was... More

It was a LOT nicer than I expected it to be, rooms, service and location (close to a lot of things we wanted to do). We stayed at Matador in march. First non-chain place I stayed at. I'd definitely come back.
