In order to check in, you go to the gas station/convenience store next to the motel. Nice size TVs and quiet rooms. Larger bathroom than the Shady Motel. Internet quality was good. If you ask, you can get free ice and free coffee from the convenience store at the gas station. There was also a small fridge and microwave in the room. We were able to fill up our coolers before we hit the road.

If you feel like going to the middle of nowhere, you should drive through Lincoln County in Nevada and visit Caliente, which is the biggest little "hood" there, with apprx. 1200 ppl. This motel is one of the 2 (or 3) places you can stay at, and it is very good. It is cheap, the rooms are clean and nice, the internet connection is fast and there is a nice tv, too. The only bad thing is that there was no breakfast included, however you will find a really nice place (name inclluded sth with iron - just ask, there is no other place there) that serves breakfast cheaply just beside the railroad. All in all, we had a nice stay in charming Caliente!

This was basic hotel but with the very limited choices in the area . This by far is the best value. Clean rooms and looks new. The train is right across the street but we had the fan on all night and only heard it once.

We were on our way from Yosemite to Bryce Canyon and Caliente looked like a good place to break the trip. It's just a few miles from Cathedral Gorge too, so it's well placed.
The motel looks like it's been very recently refurbished (or possibly newly built!), as the rooms were lovely - spotlessly clean, with extremely comfortable beds. Because we got there quite late, all the local eateries were shut, but the petrol station that owns the motel has a great selection of microwaveable snacks and meals, and the staff were so helpful - we ended up having more than enough to eat. The rooms have fridges too, so we even got some ice cream for later!
If you just need a place to break your trip and somewhere to lay your head, I would really recommend this place. At about $54 per night for a room with two queen size beds (did I mention how comfy they were??!!), I think it was a bargain. Oh, and do pay a visit to the Brandin' Iron - the local restaurant - we had a lovely breakfast there before we left, but I hear their dinners are pretty good too.
Only one word of warning - a railroad runs straight through the town, but we didn't suffer from any noise problems and had a great nights' sleep.
