The staff demonstrated courtesy and provided a very needed night's rest after a long motorcycle journey. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was free and good. I prefer the smaller motels such as this. Thank you for your kindness! The world needs more of that.

I got in late, but the young couple greeted me warmly and got me a room with steam shower. The rooms had everything: microwave, fridge, tv (older), coffee, plenty of clean towels, clean sheets, fluffy pillows. It was a great deal. In the morning they had a great continental breakfast, with waffles and cereal and fruits and juices. Thank you!...

We stayed here when traveling through because I had read the reviews on trip advisor. Yes, the room was very clean and the staff tried extremely hard (like being sure everything was re-filled for breakfast), but it is a very old motel and although it has been slightly updated, it still gives you the feeling of the 1950 - 1960's.

We stayed at this motel 2 years ago while passing through to a ski destination and loved it. Last year, I booked a return visit via the website, but when I arrived, I was greeted very differently than the year before. They told me they didn't have my reservation, that they didn't use the on-line system and that I should...

No frills, but clean and good bed. Good rate. We were unable to get the tv to work. It was quiet, we slept well. I do not have time for all ;this.......yes and no and maybe so I hope that's enough. Watch the drive way, it will catch your bumper

Very clean, I will say that. Parking is good because the room numbers have a dedicated parking spot. Booked a king size w/sauna shower. Not really sure what a sauna shower was. Big mistake. Sauna shower turns the air into a blistering bazillion degrees! Was extremely hard to breathe in the bathroom as it had a window rather than an...

My husband and I stopped here at about 1am after driving down from Montana and needing a break before continuing home to Oklahoma. Desk attendant was very polite despite our late stop. Room was clean and well equipped. Breakfast was great and the diy waffle station was great. For the price you can't beat it.

This motel is well off the interstate (actually, it's on the business route of the interstate), so it's not visible from the highway nor an obvious choice for an overnight traveler. It is, however, worth taking the time to locate. Quiet, very clean rooms, well appointed and with full amenities. The host was very friendly and desirous of ensuring a...

My wife and I like to stay here on our way to Colorado from Texas. It gets a five rating because for what it is, this little motel is awesome. It's not the most luxurious, and it's certainly not new, but it's clean, the staff is kind and helpful, the price is right, and it's in a great location off...

The room will not impress the average person, but is a really good value, and much better than some of the low priced motel chains. Last September we stayed in room 28. This September we stayed at the same motel in room 25 for the same $53.00 plus tax. The walls are dark paneling and the ceiling is also dark...

We are pleased to hear how you enjoyed your recent stay with us. I will be looking into option on brightening the room with light rather than changing paneling. We were happy to hear that you did feel safe and was happy about parking in front of your room. Thank you for sharing your recent experience staying with us. I...
