People might mistakenly overlook this little gem because it is clearly a 1950’s/Route 66 style motel. I was treated royally at this little specialty hotel from the moment I approached the desk until I left. The staff were attentive, positive, and helpful - the last time I got service like this was at Ritz Carlton’s Al Bustan in Muscat, Oman....

This is not some 5 star hotel, but staff treated you like you were at one. This is a economy hotel, a good place to stay while passing through the very expensive state of Colorado. Anne the owner is online and ready to answer any questions. Tim was very friendly on the phone, even offered to pick us up from...

I am kind of a cheapskate and didn't want to pay over $100 for one night's stay. So, I stayed here thinking I would save around $30. It was a weekend, and the other places were keeping their prices high. I called around and chose the Circle R because of the lower price. I didn't expect perfection, but it was...

The owners/managers are very nice here, and so I hesitate, and yet want to be truthful also. The place is very dated, and not necessarily overly well-maintained in the rooms. There are no electrical outlets close to the bed, and the cleanliness was less than ideal. My feet were blackened from the dirty and dusty floors by the end of...

We decided to stay here based on the small fee for having our dogs. We weren't expecting much, because we had stayed here before about a year prior but this time it was downright gross. It's an older, out of date place, but last time it was really clean. Not this time. There was so much dirt under the bed....

If you are looking for affordable and simple lodging with friendly and accommodating mom & pop owners, this is the place for you! I had great sleep in a comfy room. It was an accessible location - close to restaurants, coffee shops and to downtown and the river (the river is 10 blocks away). It was obvious the new owners...

Much to our dismay, while the owner was friendly, she lied about the entire experience. The hot tub was broken, the key would not open the door, room smelled of smoke, though it was a non smoking room, there was no soap other than the dispenser in the shower. The shower was scary; it was moldy, dirty, peeling paint. The...

We booked last minute, and paid top price, but we were pleased with this 50s motel. It was clean and Warm. Definitely a mom & pop hotel. They aren't a chain, and take pride in their property. Everything in their ad is true except... There was no stenciling in our room. I think it was freshly painted 😀.
