Clean, quiet, comfy! The lady working the front desk was very helpful and friendly. Will stay again! The motel had an old Vegas feel...the whole "Leaving Las Vegas" movie feel but not depressing...loved it!

A good location close to the center of Boulder with a small strip of shops and restaurants close by and the older part of town within walking distance. The hotel rooms are a little dingy and the breakfast is basic, at best. However location makes amends for these shortcomings and the reception staff were very friendly. A good option for... More

We had a great stay at this little motel on our way through Boulder City. The clerk at the front desk seemed genuinely pleased to be of service to our group, had a wonderful sense of humour, and was very warm and friendly. The rooms were simple but clean. I loved the human interaction and truly felt welcomed to town... More

This is a good example of southwestern motels from the 40s and 50s, complete with swimming pool and thick foliage. Close to shopping and there is a nice city park across the street to walk the dog. There are some small things that could use repair but nothing major. Wi-Fi didn't work and the desk clerk tried everything she could... More

It may not be new and fancy, but it is clean and comfortable. The staff is great, friendly and helpful. The property is well cared for. It is close to downtown, you can walk down for dinner and to enjoy all the lovely statues that are featured throughout. We were on a two-week motorcycle trip and this was the best... More

I stayed in two different rooms over the course of two different weekends and had slightly different experiences. One time the person at the front desk was very neutral, did their job, and I was on my way. The other time the check in person was telling stories, had me laughing and really seemed to be enjoying helping people. The... More

Jan at the front desk was great. Very accommodating. Thanks for a great stay. We didn't have a reservation and were exhausted. They made it easy for us with our 2 dogs. And my elderly mom and aunt. Thank you
