We had been trying to find a room since Reno but all the chains were booked. We decided to try this place really as a last resort (at 1AM) since with these older places, you just never know what you're going to get. The desk clerk was friendly and quick. We requested non-smoking and received an extremely clean room that was authentic 50s--kind of like your grandmother's cabin. Beds were comfortable with crisp sheets, the bathroom had a great, large, tiled shower and there was a window that could open up to the smell of pine trees behind the motel. The whole place is very well-maintained and charming. Check-out was easy and charges were accurate (half the price of the chains too).
