Room was dirty and very worn. Permanent residents that are very shady hanging around. Tv only had two channels desk said it would be fixed in alittle while yeah right. Thought this was the worst I have seen in a long time. They need to bulldoze this place and start over.

We stayed one night, and as soon as we pulled up, it was not good. It was like a motel you'd see in a CSI episode. Full of residents who live there. Run down room, shower didn't work properly. Stay away!

Besides that they stole their name and even the logo idea from the amazing Gateway Canyons resort, this place is a DIVE filled with "residents" and the dregs of society. Don't even slow down, just drive right past and find somewhere else. I'd rather sleep in my car! I could not rate this place where it belongs, a big fat...

The hotel has mostly people who actually live there. 5 men leering at two moms and young girls from balcony. The room had no window. There were flies in the room, blood in the bathtub, and when we pulled the blankets back there were bugs. Refunded money on credit card and then they charged us twice a few weeks later....

The old AC was so noisy we were awakened each time it cycled on through the night. Ice machine not user friendly- you must walk around the unlit side and rear of building to access. Room OK and clean, but in desperate need of updating. Make sure you bring a hair dryer (not supplied) and your own soap and shampoo,...

This is an older motel, off the highway. It's clean, the staff is friendly. Kind of funky. We only spent one night, but the bed was great, down comforter, nice hot shower, microwave, fridge. Very charming. Loved our stay here.

Thank you trip advisor! This is a great place to stay...clean, quiet, comfortable, and affordable. Within easy walking distance of bars and restaurant. Just far enough off I70 to be really relaxing. Good parking and easy check-in. We would stay here again!

This hotel provides spacious rooms for a reasonable price. It is located in a small downtown area surrounded by scenic mountains. The staff of this hotel is very friendly! Upon my arrival, the man working at the desk was willing to walk with me to show me where my room was even though it was very cold outside. He also...

“Ask for a ground level room in the back. That way you can park right in front of your room and not have to carry luggage up stairs and it will be quieter.”
