We were very pleased with our stay here. Bicycles are allowed in the rooms which any cyclist knows is a high priority. The room was clean and comfortable. It's an easy walk to shops and restaurants in downtown Fruita.

I can't say enough good about this motel. I was surprised at how clean and well maintained the motel is. I've stayed at many budget motels and this is the best I have ever stayed at. It's not a four star motel/hotel but if you are looking for a clean, safe and totally updated motel this is for you. I...

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.

We stayed one night at this motel and what a surprise. I had booked only one room but the owner was able to get us two rooms which suited us better. 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...
