We came here on a whim on our drive to Denver from LA, when we decided it was just too rainy to camp. We were very happy with this Inn. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable, there was a fridge and microwave, and a large bathroom. Room had...

Why can't there be more places like this? This little inn is perfect for a family with 4 kids. We were able to get a room with 3 queen beds which is pretty much impossible to find. The room was super clean. Nice little continental breakfast with freshly boiled eggs! The owners were very friendly and helpful. Awesome stay!

Older style 2 storey motel with very long staircase (if you have mobility issues make sure to ask for ground floor). Room was large king and was very comfortable and clean. Only downside was an airconditioner with vents which could not be adjusted so not great for the person sleeping closest. Close to rail line and not far from the...

This place is nothing special but it is clean, well located, and affordable. The owners are nice helpful people, and it's right across the street from a park. My only complaint was that the AC unit blew directly on the bed and even with the fan on the lowest setting I felt like I was in a wind tunnel all...

We were on the second floor and it was clean and comfortable. Bed was big and good to sleep on. Bathroom not huge but it worked well. It was good to have a bike wash and parking. I would stay here again. Just bring your own breakfast. The owners were really friendly and helpful.

For the reasonable price this was a nice find thanks to other Trip Advisor contributors. It is very clean. We travel with a fan, which was good as a train does go by quite close to Motel. Only complaint is they did not have air conditioner on prior to our arrival, so it took a bit to cool off. No...

Nice surprise off the freeway. Pleasant staff at check-in. Spotless room and bath. Comfortable firm mattress. Two block walk to lovely historic downtown with excellent cafes and coffee shop. Don't like this Trip Advisor app that requires I write more in order to submit.
