Reviewed June 1, 2013

It seemed okay at first. The bathroom was a little dirty, and the front door had cobwebs all over it. There was no pool even though the page on line I looked at said there was one. The tv kept going in and out. If you have children be careful with the shower. The water comes shooing out like its from a firehose, and it was very very hot, no matter how much cold I turned on. There is also no way to adjust the water pressure. You have to have the bathroom fan on, the ac on and keep the bathroom door open while showering or the smoke detector will start to go off. And you have to leave it on for about ten minutes after showering. The bed was very very uncomfortable, I have a sore back and sore shoulder. I would have left after the first night but I had prepaid for two rooms and there was a no refund policy. If you can afford the extra 20 or so I would go to the Comfort Inn across the street. They have comfy beds and there's a swimming pool and a hot tub. There's also a little playground located next to the Petro 2 gas station for little kiddies to play or if you just need a relaxing spot to read.

Have stayed here off and on for business trips the past several years. No complaints other than dirt in the corner of the floor at the front of the bed. The couple who manages it are nice but the wife is easier to deal with overall. Good basic value.

we have stayed at this motel several times , it is a halfway point from our home in Colorado to Sterling KS where our grandson is attending Sterling college. The rates are reasonable, the rooms comfortable and plenty of hot water in the morning for a hot shower. There is a computer available in the office,(don't have a smart phone) and a nice breakfast offering with coffee, oj, a selection of danish and breads, and fresh fruit. Starbucks is across the street, along with restaurants, and a Travel Center with gas available.

Stayed one night in a king bed room.
The bed was fair as far as comfort. Not sleep through the night without waking up kind of comfortable but didn't wake up with dead arm like some places.
It was clean. Brand new bedspread. The continential breakfast was decent.The people were nice. It was quiet. Decent rates. I'd stay there again.
PS I read everyones reviews before I book a motel. I hope more people will take the time to really be honest about places they've stayed. There are some real dumps out there with good reviews. I booked this palce based on these reviews and would recommend this place to other travelers.

We stayed here again , in September on our way home from a 2 week vacation out in the upper Midwest to visit family. We have always been happy with this motel. It is quiet here and we like the parking at your door and walk right in to your room , the price is good , good internet service...BUT...this time was a bit different...we were in a room that we have not been in before. First impression was great , it smells nice and is very clean. Like the other person , I had issues with the shower. It was either way too hot or cold , couldnt quite get it right. It was not broken , just very sensitive. The beds were uncomfortable. We both woke up with aches and pains. I actually got up to take some Tylenol for the pain in my shoulder ! Quite a surprise since we stayed here before and the beds were so comfy then & I didnt want to get up on those other stays here !

We needed a place to crash after a long day of driving and this exceeded our expectations. The room was clean, large enough for the king size bed and very quiet. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, bagels, sweet rolls, coffee and juice. It was all we needed and all we expected. Best part was the very reasonable price when compared to the big chain hotels

On our way to Colorado, we stopped in Colby, arriving at 11:30 pm. Room were clean and had refrigerator for our food. The only "trouble" we had was with the air conditioner. It was not cooling at all. Once it was turned to warm, it worked and cooled immediately. Shower had great pressure, but like the a/c it had some temperature issues. All in all, we'd stay here again.
