Quiet, close to highway. Easy access from parking to rooms. Free breakfast poor. Very small selection of items, they run out fast. Made to order omelets available, but be prepared to wait. One cooker for waffles, so about 3 minutes for each one, again be prepared to wait. Front desk often staffed with just 1 person, could be a wait. In my room, the fridge and AC both made occasional loud noises from the motors. The water temp in the shower was hot one day, warm the next. Hotel overall clean, quiet. A decent place. My room had two queen beds and was very tight. Little room to walk. Bathroom tiny, could not walk in and shut door, had to step around toilet to shut door, so small.... Probably worth the $84.00 per night I paid, but definitely not at the level as many other hotels.

Staff friendly, room is clean. Beds are terrible and hard, Internet service is terrible and spotty, no hot water in the showers, noisy - walls are paper thin- no privacy- you can hear everything and everyone can hear you too.

Pros: Great location (particularly for food), fantastic breakfast, comfortable rooms and then, of course, the great dinosaurs.
Cons: The clerks were always very busy and so, not as helpful as one might want. There is no taxi service in the area.

I stayed here once and had a lovely stay. I then thought it would be a great place to have a party and tried to plan one here. They were so difficult to work with that I had to find a new venue with in two weeks of the party. Their event planning staff is utterly incompetent. NEVER EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES plan a party here.We made multiple requests over the span of several weeks (like "send us a beer list") and they were never complied with, and then were told things like "i need a beer list by 10am" at 9 am. We were lied to about what they could offer months ago when we booked the party, and when we found out less than 2 weeks before the event and tried to come up with a solution to it, and there was no offer to do anything to make the situation any better (not even an offer of a small discount on the room rental fee). Every single one of my guests had a horrible time getting their room booked in the block. I tried politely to ask about this a few times and was met with rude, terse, and snarky responses about how they should just leave a message (they all did leave messages, multiple messages in some cases and were never called back). The good news is that at least 5 of our guests don't have to cancel their room because they were never successfully able to book a room in the first place, despite having tired for multiple weeks. DO NOT HAVE YOUR PARTY AT THIS HOTEL

Overall an enjoyable stay and a very good value. The staff was very pleasant and responsive. The made-to-order omelettes are a very nice touch and appreciated. The quality of the coffee at b'fast was very good. The 2 queen bed room was new, clean, large, quiet, bright and airy. Parking is free and ample. You can walk to a Circle K for cheap tall boys and sodas. Good asian restaurant in walking distance. Couple of minor nits: 1. There was no fresh coffee or cookies as promised in the lobby on the Saturday night that we stayed. 2. We had a minor in-room internet connectivity problem with apple products which we had to resolve ourselves. Apple fans be ready to troubleshoot. We had no issues with non-apple products. 3. The pool heater was broken making the pool too cold for adults to enjoy. Our kids tolerated it but there was no repair done during our stay. They spent their time in the hot tub which also was cooler than expected though more tolerable. 4. There was not enough attention given to the non-omelette breakfast area as the fruit and yoghurt was empty the entire time we were at breakfast, though there was no staff available to inform/request refills.

It was very clean, décor was very interesting, kids would love the sand lot play area. I was upset with the check in person, as she was inattentive , and very slow. I waited several minutes while she couldn't be bothered with acknowledge me. By the time I was checked in there were several persons waiting to be served. I disagree with their practice of charging $50 deposit when I paid cash for the room, and having to wait for it to released back to my bank by the motel.
The breakfast was very good and location was good for getting to the Harley Davidson dealership.
