Friendly staff here. A comfortable large room to bunk down for the night. Good breakfast, and wifi worked well. Does all the simple things well this place - a good place for my overnight stay. Would recommend to others.

Room was clean, bed comfy, management freindly & parking is plentiful. Quiet location for a good sleep. Cold breakfast & hot waffles are available but wehad a hardy breakfast across the street at Dennys :) over all - Good place, nothing fancy, but excellent for the price.

When we walked in the room it smelled very stale and I noticed the carpet looked like it was old, stained and looked like it hasn't been vacuumed in awhile. Our towels had long strands of hair on almost all if them. They also felt how a towel feels when you use it and hang back up to dry. They didn't have a clean fresh smell or touch to them. Our sheets were thread bare with strings coming undone all over. They also had a dull scent to them and I actually wondered if they were fresh clean sheets. The breakfast was abysmal. There was a waffle machine but no syrup. Stale donuts and watered down orange juice. The next morning we went to Denny's and a couple walked up to our table from the hotel and started complaining about what a joke breakfast was at the hotel. Overall the room, sheets and towels felt grimy and dirty. Did not enjoy by stay .

Firstly I will like to Thank you for sharing your recent stay experience with us.

Our aim is to make every guest stay a memorable one.

Reading your review I can feel that we were not able to meet your expectations. I will like to have an opportunity to speak with you and clear your doubts, and be able to welcome you back.

I will greatly appreciate the privilege to speak to you.

I can be reached on my direct line 970 565 9693.

The carpet in the rooms is new and has a pattern that has spots in it. This can very easily be misunderstood to be dirty. This selection of patterns in the carpet was chosen to go with the interior décor of the room as it compliments the granite counter tops installed. With the implementation of the new bedding the carpet will create a symmetry within the accent theme in the room too.

In respect to the linens and towels being cleaned, I will like to assure you and each guest that the property uses Ecolab. The most reputated and trusted name in the industry. Our machines are programmed by the firm and dispense detergent based on formulas. No linen is placed back on the beds without going through the wash cycle.

I will check into the hairs left on the towels. These towels are choice brand specific and we replace all our linen and towels every year. The current stock was purchased in May of last year.

The chemicals used to clean the rooms are also provided through Ecolab which includes a deodorizer. I will check into what could have happened as all our rooms are smoke free.

In respect to the breakfast, the juice is provided by minute maid, a division of coca cola. The machine is programmed by minute maid to disperse juice. Minute Maid is a leading name in the industry.

The property does not provide donuts, I do not know how you indicated this. The waffles and waffle syrup is provided by malted waffles, again a leading name in the industry. There could have been a possibility of the syrup running out in the machine. I gather from your comment that you may have not asked the front desk associate to replenish it.

At your service

When you're staying only one night, clean and comfortable are all that really count. For a much lower price, this motel fit the criteria. The room was spotless and quiet except for the loud diesel the person in the next room left running. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast is basic-- waffle, pastries, toast, cold cereal. Perfectly adequate for my needs.

Room Tip: Don't take 122 which is right on the highway. There was some road noise even on the interior.
