We actually stayed here twice. At the beginning of our vacation and towards the end of it. The lady that owns and runs the place is very nice and she is a stickler for detail. The exterior and interior of the rooms were in excellant shape. Our rooms did'nt have a coffee maker or fridge or microwave. But the rooms... More

Thank-you for the great review. It is awesome to hear from customers. Just a heads up to all reading and seeing the rate. It is for 1 person - 1 bed. If you are looking for more beds or have more people the rate will be more. Thanks Again Nikki More

Loved everything about this place. Bed was a little older, and not as comfortable (only reason they did not receive an excellent rating). Property was very clean, as well as the room. Owners very friendly. Overall a great stay and would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a place to stay in this area.

Stole money from us, upon asking for a refund on the room, they refused, had to get the police involved. Needless to say, the staff is incredibly rude, there are much nicer hotels for the same price in the town. STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE. If you stay here, USE CASH. Also, don't expect the staff to ANYTHING for you.

This person rented a room for 1 person. Then proceeded to bring in 5 more people to use the room for a shower. All this person had to do was ASK if it was alright with me. He tried to sneak them all in. In confronting him he became angry. We run a great business and do not put up... More

This motel has small rooms but they are comfortable and well supplied. The bathroom fixtures were updated and everything worked just fine. This is a good value with internet included. We would stay here again.

Worst hotel I've ever been in. Felt like a time warp to the 50's . Ultra tiny soap, cheapest small thin towels with holes. Dirty room. I used my own sheets as I was afraid to even pull back the covers! Carpet was dirty and side table scuzzy. I had to clean myself. Wifi was not working either. Don't stay... More

This is an old fashioned strip motel. Stayed here because of tripadvisor ratings. It was average. The room was so full of furniture. 2 Q beds, 3 nightstands, table and 4 chairs,dresser, chest of drawers, 3 lamps, microwave and fridge and TV. There were 2 overhead lights which gives the motel points in my opinion. Motel, hotels never have enough... More

This is a basic, unpretentious motel, but it is very clean and quiet. Excellent value for the money. Locally owned by friendly people. Like some of the other commentators, I had car trouble on I-25 and got towed into Walsenburg in the middle of the night. This place was the closest to where my car was towed, so I checked... More
