Reviewed November 18, 2012

Completely comfortable & pleasant room for 39.99 --- I thought it was a steal. Clean, nice decor --- a great place to rest after a 1500 mile trip, with 7 more hours in front of me. Patty & Linda at the front desk were more than helpful --- went out of their way to help me with a difficult situation. Very friendly. Patty & I chatted for about an hour before I left ---- I'll definitely stay there again, next time through. Thanks a lot you guys!

This hotel was a great value at $55/night, with 2 queen beds, a table and chairs, adequate lighting, ample vanity area, clean and fresh rooms. Heating was good and not annoying. Breakfast was for the carb type person, but that meant we got a really yummy at the nearby Jalapeno Poppers restaurant (Big sign says Jerry's but Jerry's is closed and Poppers moved in).

The woman at the desk was very friendly and guided us to Mesa Restaurant for dinner. They had great Italian food. I took a chance and ordered the chicken cacciatore and it was wonderful. Normally I don't order that in a restaurant as it comes out bland and ugly, but not here. My husband loved his jumbo stuffed shells in meat sauce too.

Wifi was free, but not connected to the internet. So what is the point? Don't know if that was usual or not.

No elevator. Fortunately, I used my smart phone to look up hotels, and called to find a rate. Another review mentioned the elevator situation in a different hotel, so I asked for a 1st floor room as we had a lot of luggage.

Room Tip: Close to freeway, didn't have to drive through town, good restaurants nearby.

$30 dollar room for $90 was a bad start, kid puking over the railing outside my room then his dad splattering it all over the parking lot with a quick swoosh of water was another bonus. Street noise, no pleasing area to walk or look at and dog poop all over any green space ensued. Sleazy looking characters lurking in the parking lot morning and night didn't help nor did the grossly unclean restaurants and stores and their bratty young help give the area even one star. Advice: skip this town entirely and you'll be much better off.

This facility is located at the eastern outer edge of Holbrook ( a fair distance from downtown).
Our room was basic and had the usual things you would find in a 2-3 star motel. The pillows were foam slabs. The breakfast was limited. We thought the hosts at the morning breakfast were somewhat unfriendly. The room was clean and worked for one night. We would likely look at other options if we were going that way again, but the price was good here - you get what you pay for.

Indoor Pool and hot tub was a treat after being on the road all day. Pet friendly was why we came and we were pleased with the hotel appearance. Denny's was close by for dining. Free wifi. Not sure why there were not that many cars there compared to the other across the street.

Yes after a long days trip the pool and spa are always a relaxation. Most of our guests enjoy it. But we'd like to thank you for the great review and especially appreciate you taking your time out in giving a review.

The people in the front were friendly and helpful but the room wasn't especially clean. There was a beetle swimming in the toilet. The free hot breakfast was nothing special. There were no eggs or breakfast meats. The hot part was the waffle iron and batter for you to make your own.
Our poodle got some stickers in his fur after being walked in the designated area.

Do to business I have been staying at this hotel for the past 18 months. I have found the rooms to be very clean and presentable. The staff is exceptionlly friendly and courtious. In the very few times there has been and issue their assistant manger Patricia has corrected the problem promptly
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone for business or plersure.
