Incredibly bad. Just so dirty, I was really sorry we had checked in in the first place. Thank goodness, we did not end up taking any 'surprises' with us when we left. The dead bugs laying in the window sills, the bathtub and behind the toilet were not reassuring - I guess they had sprayed poison? The built up crud... More

Positive: mattress is comfortable (not too soft) Negative: Everything else - room and 'busyness' with international oil drillers. I was a bit doubtful about staying here, since locals that I had asked recommended the other two places. But, it was late, the other two motels were full (oil drilling going in the area), and the next town far away. So... More

We were therefor about three weeks and the owner was very nice and polite and helped with anything we needed. He actually helped fold our laundry. If we needed any... More

My wife and I were just out roaming around and came across St. Francis, thought it was a cute place and decided to spend a night. My did we make a mistake on choosing a room. The lobby smelt of dog pee and that should have been a clue but I am slow. The room was old and I'm sure... More

I was treated like family. The new owner has made recent upgrades. Its the only Motel in town that provides breakfast. With kids, that made all the difference for me. Its great when you can take your pets without hesitation. They were welcome without question. It was to cold for the kids to play outside at the onsite play area,... More
