We stayed at this wonderful motel in Dec 2013. The vintage, log cabin interior and grand staircase were breath taking. Many old time movie stars stayed there during the hey day of the western movie era. People like John Wayne, Lucical Ball, Dale Robertson, and many more. The rooms are large and the beds comfortale. The only issue we had was the rather small bathroom. The Vintage " cage"elevator, run by the desk manager upon request was great. Try this place, its worth it.
