Having planed for a year a 12 day trip with my 87 yr old dad who wanted to ride a train from Carson City to Virginia City. We rented a travel trailer from a local co. in Tucson, AZ. Close to the end of our 2nd day out, the trailer broke an axel and from then on out we were left with staying at hotels as we tried to "make the best of what we got...."
This is the first hotel we stayed at. Being labor day weekend the town was pretty much booked and there were few rooms left.
Positives: there was a grilling area at the pool and we were able to grill some of the food we had brought for camping. The room was a nice size. I didn't see any bugs! The room didn't smell funky!
(I'm tying to find some good here... Zeesh) The breakfast was okay.. The coffee was good.
Negatives: There was a huge stain on the ceiling from what looked like water leaking in the upstairs bathroom. It covered the bathroom area out to the beds. The beds were very soft and I had a hard time sleeping as did my father.
If I had a choice... I would rather not stay here again. Especially at the price we paid.
The sad thing is as I write these reviews this motel did not end up being the worst of the ones we stayed at.
