“Small Hotel with good value and service”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed here for a quick overnight and were surprised at the nice service offered. The rooms are a bit small and beds so-so but a simple breakfast was provided and the rooms/hotel area were clean. Really appreciated the extra toiletry samples as we were running low.

I stayed here for three nights while on a vacation in Colorado. I was pulling a trailer with a motorcycle. I had called ahead and Frank, the the owner/manager, confirmed I would be able to park safely on property.

Frank was very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. He had his maintenance manager, Brian, help me unload the motorcycle and get the trailer parked. Both Frank and Brian were friendly and helpful the entire time. I know I would not have gotten this type of help at one of the chain motels.

The property is an old-style motel, one-story, park in front of your room. It's a bit dated, but kept up well. The room was clean as was the bathroom, maid service was daily and they did a good job. There were a few stains on the carpet, but it was clean.

The only issue I had was the wall-unit a/c wasn't really adequate for the room. It was summer and hot outside, the a/c only caught up at night when things cooled off.

I would definitely stay again, this was a great experience for me.

Room Tip: I think any room here would be fine.

Although this is one of the older style 50s motels, it had been totally and tastefully redecorated. Service was outstanding; the owner worked hard to accommodate any special requests. The included breakfast was better than average for this price hotel and the price was outstanding.

Wow, what a pleasant surprise! First, this place is obviously a 1950's hold-over. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if I stayed here as a little girl on one of our family road trips through Montrose. It's a little one-story place with tight quarters for parking. However, it has been very well-maintained and updated, as much as is possible. Our room was extremely small, but clean, attractive and with many electrical outlets. A nice feature was the mini-fridge and microwave. Sink and mirror were outside the bathroom--our preference. I was surprised at the high quality of the king bed and pillows. Great night's sleep! Complimentary continental breakfast was standard offerings, but there were some nice choices and items were fresh. Both the night clerk (Brian?) and the morning clerk were extremely friendly, kind and eager to help and the price was phenomenally low. We're on a tight budget, so we really appreciated having such a nice place for a price we could afford.

I spent two nights at this single story old style motel for less than the cost of one night at where I had stayed last time in Montrose (Hampton). The owner/manager Frank is friendly, competent, and runs a great little motel. The rooms are small but very clean. The continental breakfast is small but just fine for the price of the room. The bed was a bit soft for my preference, but no real problem, just a preference. The towels are like the big boys have, not the tiny thin ones like some lesser priced motels have. I would recommend Frank's motel to anyone traveling through the area.

First of all I try to stay away from the big chain hotels, we all know what they provide and prices to go along with the name. I like to find the locally owned places and this place is great. Frank is the new owner/manager since February of 2012 and he has done a great ijob n cleaning this place up. The room was clean, nice facility, small but acceptable breakfast in the morning and the price is very reasonable. Its motorcycle friendly as well. Great location right at the stoplight as you enter town from the east on 50.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are away from the street and even tho it would seem that it might be noisy the roo...

Stayed here for a Saturday night and it was more than enough for the great rate. The room was very clean and had all the basic appropriate amenities. The only thing that I was a little confused about was the door locks as we could not get the dead lock to work when leaving the room for dinner.
