We stayed 2 nights and were very comfortable. The room was very çlean and very well equipped. There is a laundry and the detergent was complimentary. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was an excellent breakfast including waffles, hot food and fresh fruit. Highly recommended.

First motel we found after the heat of the Arizona-California desert.We paid $75 for one night Our room had French windows and a terrace with a picnic table near the swimming pool.

Good stop when traveling between Arizona / Utah National Parks and Northern California. Perfect value for money. Pool was excellent as well as breakfast (I would only recommend one more toster to avoid queueing).

Large room with all the amenities I would expect. They upgraded us to a king bed which we appreciated. It was a little firmer than I like but was perfect for my girlfriend. Breakfast included scrambled eggs and sausage which is beyond the usual free breakfast.

This place looked like it hadn’t changed much since the sixties which actually wasn’t a bad thing. It’s basic, cheap and cheerful and in an ideal location to break up a trip to or from Las Vegas. While all the fittings in the room were old, they were spotlessly clean and we found the beds to be very comfortable. We...
