Most reviews pretty much sum up the Phillips Motel. I had one of the small rooms on the street behind the main part of the motel. The room was furnished with mis-matched furniture and lamps from many era's. Just a collection of pieces put together by a blind person. TV was a small old tube type that worked fine. Micro & fridge also in room. Bathroom was small but served it's purpose. Heater worked well during the cool night. Overall the room was clean & tidy. Price was right. $40 + tax. You can hardly camp for that price. I would rather stay in a place like this than your standard cookie cutter motels that fill the landscape of freeway exits in our country. This place has it's own unique character that's missing in chain motels. Maybe it's the throwback to travel time with my parents and staying in the old roadside motels in the 50's & 60's. Maybe it's because I want to rest and don't care about what kind of marble the sink in the bathroom is made off. It doesn't matter when the rest is comfortable. You will find comfort here.
