Recent guest reviews

Slept here. I was asleep for the time I was here.

I don't often write negative reviews, but this was extreme. When I walked into the lobby it smelled terrible: A scented candle was burning, filling the room with an awful aroma. Who knows what scent it was masking? The room was better, but still smelled of "masking fragrance." I had pre-paid for one room but my party had increased in size and we were contemplating spreading out into two. Instead, we kept just the pre-paid room and found another place for the rest of us to stay. The woman at the front desk was incredibly rude to us all. If we hadn't prepaid, I would have walked out then and there. My wife was very upset by the woman's going on and on about how the lobby smelled nice and how she was so offended by our not thinking the same. She sneered and barked at us when telling us about fees for additional guests in the same room. We couldn't get out of the lobby fast enough. What a way to treat a paying customer!

Room was clean, everything was in working order, the only thing was the lady at the front desk was kind of rude because I didn't know what I was doing, because it was my first time checking into a motel on my own. Other than that, lovely place and great price.

The room has this bad odor. It's like the room stinks and something was used to cover the smell but did not get rid of it. They need a neutral scent deodorizer because whatever they are using is not working.

i wasnt going to go here because of some bad review, but im glad i did. It was very nice.

Simple, quiet, lighting was good, near gas station.

The motel is several years out of date. I had pre-paid reservations but had to fill out the same info on a registration form by hand. Have not done that in several years. Room was ok. Nice beds and tv. Housekeeping was nice when they brought the items missing at check in. It is ok.

The hotel was very basic. Room smelled strongly of cleaning chemicals or air freshener. A little run down. I have stayed at better places in the area for the same price.

Stayed on business, perfect for "just a clean room" nothing more nothing less. Would stay again.

the only issue i found was that it appeared that housekeeping forgot to vacuum, but everything else was clean and comfortable. plenty of cigarette smoke outside but no apparent trace inside, which was good as i am quite sensitive.

We were looking for an affordable, comfortable room and this place definitely delivered. Nothing really spectacular and breakfast was nothing but fat carbs but the room was clean, comfortable, smelled good which is often unusual and served our needs for a short stay. We would recommend this hotel.

Motel is in a convenient location to where I had to conduct business. It was a bit pricey for the place. Staff was friendly. Room was ok. Television did not work

Next to a gas station I was afraid my daughter would not sleep well but it didn't bother her and it quieted down after a bit. Overall great for the price. Don't expect much for breakfast. I will use it again because of the price.

rooms ok for one night if your travel across the country and dont wanna spend mutch.

Clean room, helpful staff, close to downtown, just off of freeway.

We stayed 6 nights and it was quiet and comfortable. Nice kitchenette saved us some money. We would stay there again.

I was there for BYU graduation with family so didn't spend much time in the room. It was clean and comfortabe. I appreciated the fridge, micro-wave and coffee pot. Very convenient.
