We used to stay here every time we came to Lamar to see my family that lives in Lockwood. Never had a problem until we were put in a room that had linoleum flooring, lampshades were crooked, bedding was sat on, chairs & table was from the 1980's, cigarette butt was in an ashtray, sink dripped on the floor, old-...

This room was rented and resented the same day mid week for a homeless elderly disabled couple while waiting for their home to be ready. At $55 a night and a supposed $20 "Pet Deposit"..of which the pet did not stay. They wouldn't clean the room, take the trash out, change the sheets. This couple both have COPD and one...

We like this little motel ~ the price is right and the rooms are comfortable. In the past we have found the front desk personnel to be very warm & welcoming but this time the super friendly clerk unlocked the lobby door and, as per the sign, explained that guests need to go to the truck stop C-Store to register....

Good motel for the price. Staff are friendly and outgoing. Breakfast is at the Denny's across the street. That makes the price of the motel a lot cheaper than the competitor. I would recommend splurging and getting the better rooms. They make you feel like you are in a luxury motel.

Good for the price, sheets a bit scratchy and mattress a bit springy/soft.free Denny's breakfast and military discount made it a good stay for weary travelers due to flight delays. Checked in at Sinclairs across street because it was after hours but man was very helpful

Glad to find this refreshing oasis on Trip Advisor! Saved us from a dreary stop at their franchise competitor. It was modern, clean, fresh, and they sent us across the street for a free breakfast at Dennys!

What a great little place! We got 4 rooms for 5 nights a lot cheaper than the competitor with free breakfast at Dennys across the street. Heck that's worth about 8 bucks right there!

Having friends just outside of Lamar, my wife and I always stay here when visiting them. The rooms are dated, but clean. The beds are comfortable. A breakfast at Denny's is included. We will stay there the next time we visit.
