What can I say about this place, besides UNBELIEVABLE. 7 guys on Harleys, decided on this hotel from what we read on TripAdvisor and other websites. Just looking for a good nights rest and a relaxing evening. We got much more than that!!!! We got in around 4 or 5, got off the bikes, and went in the motel lobby and we met our new found friend Richard. Very polite, very interested in our trip!!! Then his wife Gale, showed us to our rooms, which we thought was awesome, told us about the room, showed us how to work everything, and we thought that would be the last we will see of them. Gale came back after checking everyone in there room, with Towels for our bikes, and Aloe Vera lotion for our sun burns from being on the road all day. Which is top shelf service, no other hotels did this on our 8 day trip. Then low and behold, Richard came and talked to us about the history of Route 66, his hotel, and happenings around town. He did this with everyone that showed up that night. We didnt want to leave. Great Stay, Great Hotel, and most of all GREAT PEOPLE!!!! If you want a place where everyone is friendly including guests, this is the place to stay. We will go out of our way to stay here again on our next trip!!!! Great Job Richard and Gale!!!!!! Thank you!!
