We stayed here twice on a 4500 mile road trip, once heading out and once heading back. The owner is wonderful, she even called to ask if we needed directions on our way in. When we got there, she showed us the room and explained the A/C and left us a booklet about the motel and the area, super wonderful! The first time we stayed, it was a dream! The kids even slept late, the beds were SO comfortable! The second time, not as great. The room was still very clean and the beds were comfortable, but there was a group of motorcyclists staying at the hotel who decided to rev their engines at 11pm, then the ones staying next to us kept their tv on all night long. The walls are thin, so I could hear everything they were watching all night, but I was too tired (and a little scared of them!) to tell them to turn it off. The motel has it quirks, so don't expect the Hilton, by the comfy bed, the great shower water pressure, and a really nice owner make this my favorite place to stay on Rt. 66!
