Was visiting and only needed an inexpensive but clean, comfortable room for one day that would also accommodate my medium sized (40 lb) dog. The Rainbow provided that and more, including my first choice for future visits. The proprietors, including Bently, were most accommodating and pleasant. Older motif but clean, neat and comfortable. Staying for a day or several, give...

Every room I had there was always exceptionally clean. The mattresses are all pillowtop and are like sleeping on a cloud! The linens are very fine and soft. The owners are so friendly and accommodating! The cabins with the little kitchens are great to cook a functional meal. I had a hip surgery and they gave me a room with...

Please don't stay at this motel unless you want problems and you want your stuff ruined. We drove all the way here through a blizzard because they refused to let us cancel. When we got here the executive suite that we paid for was "unfortunately under construction and the roof was made incorrectly" so we couldn't stay in it. They...

Mam why are you lying. You called us to cancel your reservation due to the fact that event was canceled and we agree to that. All you had to do is to call Booking.com and cancel your reservation. Then you suprised us because Booking.com told you that you can not cancel. Because you told us that you cancel we started...

I'm not a complainer. I have travelled a fair amount and am happy being a budget traveller as I often find that budget accommodations can be little gems with lots of character and a place to meet some wonderful, down to earth people. Sadly, this was NOT our experience at Rainbow motel. On the plus side, the woman owner seemed...

Yes unfortunetly I hate to admit but previous cleaning stuff did a mediocre job. Upon inspection of the rooms we find out a lot of discrepancies so we were forced to let them go and hire new housekeepers and we will keep close eye on them. Once again sorry for your unpleasant stay and we promise to do a lot...

Advertising is misleading, we rented the "cabin" thinking it would be, you know, a cabin.... It was simply two rooms with a connecting door on the property. Rooms were surface cleaned but not deep cleaned. Carpet and beds looked like they were all from the early 80's and had a Goodwill used feel to all the decorations and bed coverings....

It is a cabin that you can rent as a whole or as separate units. It is your right whether you like or not. We checked the plumbing with you several times and it was working fine. So I figured I be better off with you gone since you never liked the place. Our stuff is doing good job cleaning...

Early April, so things are slow, but the management is using the time to give the place some upgrades. Standard room was average sized and was clean and comfortable. The place is old style with at door parking. I like that! Close enough to amenities, and walking distance to food. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would stay here again,...

My sons and I were looking for an affordable place to stay the night and were pleasantly surprised by the Rainbow Motel. The surrounding area may look a little sketchy especially late at night but the accommodations were a lot better than expected. The rooms were quite large and clean and the staff was very easy to work with.

We payed a fair lower price and so we expected something run down. We were actually quite comfortable and were left to ourselves. Yes it's a little dated, but that is where we found its charm. So we will be back March 2017 and we hope this will become a pleasant annual getaway!

Stayed for early Christmas weekend and had a great time as usual. In the middle of everything and terrific owners. Will stay here again. Get a room with a kitchen and its like being at home while away.

Our hotel room was just what we needed for us. We were not planning on staying in the hotel as we wanted to be in town and outside enjoying our surroundings. But it was perfect for my husband and I. There was a porch that looked out on the mountains from the back our room. Just breathtaking.

Thank Katie B
