All I usually look for in a room is that the bed in comfortable and clean, besides that they had a large TV which was really nice. Will come back again during hunting since they allow dogs. Front desk was friendly. Pizza was next door.

The rooms have cement block walls, just to give an idea of the quality. On the pro side, the room did not smell of cigarette smoke as I feared it would... on the con side, it had a strong musty odor like an old basement. On the pro side, the room did appear to be clean... on the con side,... More

The Viking Motel is easy to find with its big sign visible from the high way. Check in was efficient and friendly. My room was large and clean and comfortable. In the evening, it was pleasant sitting outside the door having an ice cream sundae from around the corner. And the next morning having coffee from the in room coffee... More

The Viking Motel is just what you would expect for such a cheap price. The beds were clean and comfy and we had a big TV in our room, but the place otherwise needs a lot of work. The tub needs a good scrubbing - if you want to use it to take a shower, wear your flip flops. The... More

Just a simple, clean and private motel with easy access to highway 7. Prices are very reasonable! Crisp~clean sheets and linens. In room coffee maker and mini refrigerator or a quick walk to McDonalds if you're hungry. Try them out next time you're headed west!

The other reviews emphasize clean lets say clean enough. I had to kill 10 flies to get settled in. The front window was in in need of a good wash. There is a junk airconditioner in the yard. An over the hill motorcycle is slowly sinking into the parking lot. It must have been there since the weather was hot... More

We like the room, it was very simple but that is ok with me since it was clean. Thats my main concern. New towels , which were really nice. There is a micro and fridge. I was able to get a blow dryer at the office. Would stay again, was in town for a funeral.

This motel really makes me question the rating in trip advisor. The motel was run down and so we're the rooms. The room has a old window unit air conditionser that bearly worked. The pillows were flat on one of the cheapest mattresses that I have had to sleep on in a while. The towels were left hanging and not... More
