Stayed here 3 nights during a mountain bike trip and wish I could rate it even higher than excellent ..the owners and motel were awesome! Walking distance to city center, bike cleaning area, clean rooms with microwave and mini fridge, and super friendly owners! The rates are fair for what you are getting, which is a great base camp to...

This is a motel located on the western end of the main drag in Fruita, convenient to the interstate, downtown restaurants & shopping, and within a few miles of the western entrance to the Colorado National Monument. The rooms are well appointed and appear to have been recently remodeled. Our room had two queen beds, desk, table, two chairs, TV,...

A wonderful stay! A quiet little inn, very well maintained. After a long motorcycle ride I was ready to relax. Upon opening the door, I was delighted. Homey and so clean it shined. I highly recommend this hotel and the price was beyond great.

He was very helpful and pleasant and the price he quoted was amazing. The room was extremely clean and comfortable, it did look as if it had been recently...

After reading the reviews on trip advisor and looking for a reasonably priced hotel we booked the Balanced Rock. Met our top three criteria (clean, quiet, safe). If asked what I would like to see different, night stands on both sides of the bed with lamps that have plug ins on their bases for cell phones. Would stay there again...

This is not a fancy hotel. It's a budget, Mom and Pop operation that could use some maintenance here and there. Typical low end motel with rooms that open to the outside, no elevator. Rooms are not fancy but ours had a microwave, small fridge, and a table/chairs. It's inexpensive and it's a good place to crash if you're just...

The room was comfortable and clean with all of the usual amenities. The feature that stood out was the very nice decor. It had the touch of creativity in very good...
