Reviewed June 23, 2014

Clean very big rooms. Not the newest but it did not bother us since it was clean. Nice out side pool. Good location and friendly staff. Basic breakfast. I liked the atmosphere so I would recommend it .

We got THE deal of the century on this gorgeous room! This 2 queen bed room with a view of the incredible pool normally books for $119 per night. We found it on Kayak with 2 rooms left for the incredible bargain of just $39! We've NEVER found an even "1/2 decent" hotel for $39 but this one truly blew us away! This was room was incredible & incredible value. It was just huge, very very clean, classic & tastefully decorated (which we love), lots of towels, a nice dining table by the window to have dinner on with a view of the pool. The beds were one of the most soft and comfortable we've encountered at a hotel. Breakfast was good & included toast, hot & cold cereal, muffins & if you request they even have frozen Jimmy Dean Sausage sandwiches! The staff was great, very helpful, kind & considerate. The lobby, halls & grounds were very beautiful & very well maintained. It even has a "game" chest upstairs with board games like chess, checkers etc for families to take to their rooms & play. It has the look of an authentic resort lodge that you will find in Colorado, etc. Very very nice! Many restaurants within a mile driving distance. We will absolutely, positively visit again.

Stayed here 1 night. Excellent value. Large rooms with 2 queen beds and plenty of space for $40 each. Reasonable breakfast included: toast, juice, coffee, hot and cold cereal and breakfast muffins to microwave. Highly recommend for the price.

I don't usually write reviews for motels but this place was a stand out for good value. I stay in motels often for work and holidays and this place offered, for around $40, what i would normally expect for a $60 to $70 motel. Clean and comfortable and friendly staff.

Found this motel via the internet. Looked as though it would be a good one due to the location and what we had planned for the weekend. Upon our arrival we were met by a young man at the front desk (later found out his name was Zach). I had told him I was going to call direct to make the reservation but found out they wanted $99 a night and we got it through Expedia for about $39. Oh buy that is when I was informed that Expedia was not doing their part and that they were loosing money due to the fact their site was not being updated as it should be. He said it was great for us as the customer, but they were definitely loosing money?
The room was not that bad over all, but for a non-smoking room (#205) there are burn marks on the carpet, a huge wet stain on the floor by the bed (I was told the carpet had just been cleaned), dead flies in the window sills, coffee pot had an old dry used filter in it, the sheets looked all wrinkled and was not really sure if the sheets were really clean or just straightened out.
For being not to far off I-90 the place is quite, it did however state a full breakfast and Zach informed us oatmeal, dry cereal toast and heated up sandwiches were all they had and you have to ask for the hot sandwiches!
If you are looking for a low budget, book through Expedia, want to spend twice the amount book directly through the Foothills Inn, as long as you are just sleeping and don't expect to spend a great deal of time in your room this could and possibly is the place for you...

Room Tip: Choose something in the back of the motel, great plus is Perkins is just a few steps away...
