“nice small town hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Above average small town hotel, a little further out of town than other properties but only by a couple of minutes. If you have to bring a lot of stuff to your room make sure you get a first floor room. Good staff, nice pool area; breakfast area was nice and well.

The motel has been around for probably 20 years or so. It has changed hands a few times but both times I've stayed there on weekends it has been a good experience. I have never been there during the week as a business traveler.
The room was clean with two queen-sized beds. It was a room that allows smoking but I actually could not detect any smoke smell in it. They were out of non-smoking rooms and I took what I could get.
The beds were comfortable, it had a good-sized flat screen TV with cable, and the heating/cooling was controlled by a wall thermostat. There was a fair choice of breakfast rolls, donuts, biscuits and cereal as well as hot breakfast that consisted of sausage, scrambled eggs, cubed potatoes, and gravy.
The motel was quiet and we slept well. The maids cleaned the room to spotless condition every morning. There is an indoor pool and a hot tub built into one area along with a rudimentary fitness area.
The only thing I would have liked to add to the motel was an elevator to take guests and luggage to the second floor. It seemed a little pricey but compared to the other motels in town it was the best by far.

I'm in the military and have traveled to Mexico every month for the last year. Staying in various hotels, including the Columbia Marriott, which is where I usually stayed. I will say I regret that I haven't been staying here.
First, it's clean! The rooms are spacious. Nice sitting area, comfortable bed (albeit small pillows). Nice size fridge, coffee pot for individual cups, good water pressure--and did I mention clean!

Staff was friendly, although my key did lock me out of the outside door and the attendant sent me back 3 times, she did open it for me on the 3rd time. I think that could have been improved!

The room was very quiet, I have to be up very early so I REALLY appreciated this.

The breakfast is great. You're not going to a restaurant, but there are eggs (protein--YEA!!), a waffle iron, coffee, fruit, bread and jams--pretty great in my mind, and comfy clean sitting.

Great price, two big thumbs up!

I really like the pumpkin or cinnamon candles that were burning when you come in--I loved that smell through the place-nice touch.

One improve, the back curtain by 228 is falling apart--a little eye sore. Fix that and the place otherwise looks very nice.

Thanks!

This hotel has changed hands several times that I know of. It was old 20 years ago and remains old. The breakfast wasn't much to talk about and the decor was old. BUT, that said, I still got a good night's sleep. The trouble is that Mexico MO doesn't have a variety of selections. Stayed there because I am a member of the BW rewards club.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback about the room decor. We will start renovating all the rooms in a few months, including all new carpet, furniture and fixtures. Our lobby has already been renovated this year, and we receive a lot of compliments about our indoor pool and Jacuzzi. We appreciate your constructive criticism about our breakfast, and will work on improving it. We hope you give us another chance during your future travels.
