“surprising good for a cheap motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

we stayed there for a night on our way to Colorado from Texas. To be honest I wasn't expecting anything good but the room turned out to be very clean and nice. it was large enough and there was even a safe inside the room. The towels weren't that clean though.
another problem was that the fan was not automatic so it was either very cold or very hot and we ended up turning it off completely.
overall, for the price we paid it was a very good deal.

I made a reservation and paid before checking out the room first. It was filthy. The phone, front door, air conditioning unit looked like it had never been cleaned. The front door opened when not locked with the dead bolt. The shower looked like it had rust or mold on it. There was food from a guest before me in the trashcan. The pillow was so dirty it was brown. When I spoke with the front desk and went to speak with her I asked "Would you sleep on this?" She said "I would if it had a pillow case on it." Finally she agreed to replace it with 2 small clean pillows. The linens were quite old and used. The blanket seemed at least 20 years old. I was so uncomfortable there I couldn't sleep or wait for the morning to leave.
When calling the manager later he said we could have a discount next time we stayed. I found that completely unacceptable. Some Motel 6's are very clean and nice THIS was not one of them!

We were here a total of 6 hours as we just needed to sleep while driving through. I was paranoid but the room wasn't as bad as I expected for the very low price. It was clean and ok for a night. I was able to take a hot shower and it's pet friendly. Keep expectations low- if you want a nice room with a comfy bed and amenities go to different chain for twice the cost. If you just need a place to sleep then get on the road this is fine.

Went there on my way to Santa Fe. Property was not very well lit in the back. Checkin area reaked of machine heat. Room was ok.. fair for the price and about Motel 6 standard.... cable was the highlight. Bathroom was clean and towels were basically kitchen towel size (also std for Motel 6). I might go again or push on past it. Not a family place.... guys traveling or solo. I wouldn't stay there if I were a woman by myself. Get there, sleep, leave early.

Dreadful room, worn out linens, bugs, and what is that floor made of? No amenities, paid for wifi but only one of us could use it at a time, Noisy, well-worn and just tacky. I thought about sleeping in the car but it was too hot, so froze in the room. Never again!!

Simple hotel with basic amenities. Internet is $2.99 (as with any Motel 6). No hairdryer, iron etc etc, but on the other hand, rooms are cheap, so if you want a nights sleep with no fuss, this is a great place.

Rooms were clean and tidy and well sized.

The bonus of this hotel is that it is close to the interstate, and also the Big Texan Ranch, home of the 72oz steak. (Plus a Limo picks you up for free and drops you home)!!

Good stay!

Room Tip: Ground floor as there is no lift!
