Thank you for your review, I am very sorry about the heater, we will have it looked at. I hope you enjoyed your time in our beautiful area. And hope to see you again.
Stayed here before going into Goblin Valley and Little Wild Horse Slot Canyon hiking. Room was great! Very clean and cheap. Don't let the fact that it is an older motel scare you. Would stay again. ...Mr & Mrs Smith
Very nice, very clean and nicely appointed room with a king-size bed, a rarity in most motels. Nicely remodeled bathrooms. Very friendly staff. No breakfast served, but Stan’s Burger Shack restaurant is located next door. Quiet surroundings.
