This is a convenience store with two gas pumps and some rooms on the second floor. The "restaurant" is open for pizza, 6-7PM. That's it. The front desk closes at 7PM. The building is run down, including the rooms. They tell you that hot water takes 15 minutes to get to the room in the morning. Room prices, for what they are, should be about $15. This place could be described as "camping inside" at best. This is a dumpy little "motel" that lures buyers who have never been there with high prices, assuming the buyer believes there MUST be something good about it. There isn't. I wouldn't stop there to get gas. And if you book and arrive... and immediately think "Bates Motel", they won't cancel your reservation.
We arrive, saw this place for what it is, and left. We lost the room cost but stayed in a wonderful hotel, after an incremental 5+ hour drive, in Mammoth Lakes for 1/3 the cost of this dump. The drive was worth it. They couldn't pay me to spend a night at this place.
