Traveller Type: young couple
  : Comfortable, clean, quiet, hot water. The staff were friendly and helpful, but spoke minimal English.
  : Wi-fi was between marginal and unusable. Unit had very minimal lighting. The room was cold on arrival and we needed help to turn the heater on. The “breakfast” was very minimal and was not ready at 7am as stated. We had to ring the bell a little after 7, then wait. Nothing but coffee and two plastic containers of cereal with milk and juice. Nowhere in the office to consume them — just grab and go.

  : The bed was somewhat comfortable mattress with a little lumpy if you're looking for a place to crash for the night you don't want to spend too much guess for 40 bucks it's not too bad
  : The picture quality on the TV was pretty bad but it's an old TV set not much for a breakfast either

  : Cost was loe
  : This is an old run down building but the price was low.

Traveller Type: solo traveller
  : Right off Route 66, the motel was tucked away somewhat which was great to get a good nights sleep. If you’re just passing thru for a night and want a well priced, pet friendly, decent night sleep without any extras or frills, this fits the bill.
  : The vibe is something else. I wasn’t sure if the facilities were still up and running.

  : Good location & very nice people
  : Lumpiest pillows, even using all 4 I didn’t have support for my head. Despite the owners efforts to clean I think years and years with the same rug (& maybe linens) meant I woke with running eyes and stuffy head- the rug was “squishy” which is usually a sign of how old it is and who knows how much animal dander that’s built up over time even if vacuumed well each time & shampooed occasionally

  : The individuals running the motel were very eager to please and cooperative about showing us the room before checking in. It was nice not to worry about refund if we did not like the property as it was payment upon check in.
  : This is a VERY OLD motel and could use some sprucing up on the exterior. Rooms are not bad for the price, very clean, but small details like bigger pillows, adequate toilet paper, hangers and nightstand on both sides of bed would help improve.
