Conveniently located on the road & route I was travelling, the room was spacious and with a great heater, a bonus with the weather cooling down. It was a short drive either along to town or out to where there were some food options although across the road was a service station for a few nibbly items. The staff were...

My husband and I are driving to Mazatlan and looking for budget motels to stay at along the way. We were pleasantly surprised with this stay. It is an older building but clean and comfortable. We had a roof top carrier on our car so needed a secure place. This did not disappoint. Light outside each room. We had guests...

Our large room had a king bed, was recently remodeled, with table and chairs, small fridge and microwave, and cable TV, and free wi-fi. Both room and bath were fresh and clean, plenty of hot water. Very good and very quiet air conditioner in our Room #122.. Front desk people were pleasant. Limited continental breakfast at 7 am, but clerk...

Very old property. Rooms were clean, but very worn. They had a samll fridge and microwave. WIFI was good enough to play Netflix so that was good. The TV is small and older. My son is 9 and asked if this was what TVs were like in the olden days. LOL. Beds were good and shower was hot. I had...

Older property, showing signs of wear and tear. It was clean, but the rooms definitely could use a spiffing up. we stayed two nights but if I were to go back to Ely there are other nicer properties that I would consider.

Stayed here on our trip to California. Room was clean but small. Started the air conditioner and it ran but no cool air coming out. Talked to front desk and by that time maintenance was gone and no extra rooms. Ended up opening door at 1 a.m. to cool the room down to tolerable. Parking lot is extra small.

We stayed in the same room as the other reviewer that had a poor experience: mouse trap, cracked window, torn and stained carpet, and water damage on the wall. The pictures don't do justice of how old and stained the carpet is. None of us would walk barefoot on it. The room was stuffy and smelly. We asked for a...

We needed a hotel for a quick stopover on a drive to Phoenix. This hotel was rated 2 stars, and the price was right. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. I usually rate hotels by the quality and size of the towels. For the towels, I'd give 3 stars. The rooms are a bit worn looking, but who...

I like to start my reviews with something positive, so I will say that the mirror made me look 10 lbs thinner! Also, the mini fridge was very clean and the beds were pretty comfortable and the breakfast was okay. Now, for the reality. The carpet was dirty, stained and torn. I didn’t even want to walk on it with...

Just remember that this is an older motel. It is well maintained and the staff treated us very well. Continental Breakfast is included and is perfectly acceptable for what it is. Bagels, toast, cereal, coffee, tea - more than enough for us. Bath room is small but functional with good water pressure. The heater worked fine with our own thermostat...
