Just keep going... don't stop here. Vegas is only about 1.5 hours away... and a rest stop about 20 minutes away. This place is NASTY! Not even worth it even if it was free. The room is dark because they're trying to hide how disgusting the room is! Dennys is down the street - they'll let you park your car...

On our way toYuma we booked online with a 3rd party & had a mix up but Ruby at the front desk got everything worked out. Great service! Room was nice-coffeepot, fridge, alarm clock & microwave & the included breakfast was good.

Friendly welcome from staff. Rooms clean and spacious for family of four. Pool looked good but too cold for us in April. Breakfast had a good selection but items ran out like cream cheese for bagels and muffins as people taking large platefuls away leaving none for everyone else. Waffle machine was popular.

The room was in a very noisy part of the building. The breakfast offering was literally the worst "free" breakfast I have ever seen in a motel so we had to eat elsewhere. The room was ok but too expensive for what you get.

The hotel was easy to find. Front desk lady was nice. Rooms are big, extra sink next to the bathroom. We overlooked the pool on the second floor. The room was pretty noisy from the neighbors, especially the shower noise! Was not impressed with the breakfast, walked to I Hop next door. Had dinner at Los Domingo across the street...

The Hotel staff is beyond great. Helpful and friendly. The owner is EXTREMELY RUDE. Never says hello or goodbye and acts like he is doing you a favor by letting you stay, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE from him, never smiles, he is terrible. Thank God for the staff.... which is great. Also the breakfast needs to be a bit better

We stayed here 2 years ago and really liked the place, so chose it based upon that. Booked online thru the hotel website. When booking on their site, there's a space for special request; I specifically requested bottom floor room, as my husband has a disability & this hotel doesn't have elevators. Arrived at hotel & were told they didn't...
