This motel was a delightful reminder of the early "Car Parks" from the 1960s when families motored across the US on Highway 66. However, it was renovated to our current standards and was clean, comfortable and charming. We enjoyed our stay and would like to return for the nostalgia and the comfort.

Didn't like the huge roaches in both rooms that they offered. Luckily found a room at Holiday Inn nearby.

While the overall decor, style and location, is acceptable, the family room with an attached second bedroom was more than uncomfortable in the summer. It took till nightfall to cool down and we had to request an additional fan for the second bedroom, which didn’t have its own air-conditioning unit. The friendly staff was very accommodating and quick to supply this second fan but this second room was like a broiler for the kids. We trust the management will rectify the situation by ensuring that this second room has its own A/C.

Needed a place to stay to get clean and warm after several days of camping and this was perfect. It looks a bit retro from the outside (which we liked) but is totally updated on the inside. Staff very friendly. Great deal!

The Motel is clean, staff friendly. If there is no other option, this place is ok
