We spent the last night of our vacation there in July 2018 after travelling 9 days throughout the western states. This was by far the cheapest, however, also the one in the most need of repairs. A queen room was just $54 so we didn't expect much. The bathroom is extremely small, the tub enclosure has cracks all over it, the counter has knife marks all over, one of the towels was dirty, and the pillows were just about flat. On the plus side, there was a refrigerator and microwave, the TV worked well and the room was quiet. When we went to checkout at 9:00 there were people sitting in the lobby waiting for the clerk to start breakfast. We rang the desk doorbell and called on the house phone but no one came. We left our key on the desk and left. I understand there are new owners but it doesn't look like they've done much to improve their business. If you're just looking for an inexpensive place to sleep for the night, this should suit you. Again, it was only $54 so you get what you pay for.

The bathroom in our room was molded, the beds were nasty, the staff was rude, room smelled like human pee, and the doors didn’t lock all the way. We arrived at almost 4am and rang the bell for service for almost 30 minutes, there were 3 guests trying to check in at the same time. Everywhere else was sold out and the attendant was rude.

Prime location close to Interstate and easy to access. It was convenient to park next to the room. While outside looks great, interior was manageable. Spacious, clean. Decent breakfast was available including hot waffles. New owners have recently taken over and striving to improve things. So the earlier negative reviews should hopefully get invalid soon.
For us the owners went out of the way to get us fresh hot coffee even late night

Checked in around Midnight everything was fine and slept decent for the price. Woke up to get coffee none was available, same night clerk stated breakfast was not delivered however only wanted coffee. Went to get coffee at McD's not a big deal however went to fill up my small cooler for diabetic supplies and ice machine was not working. Went to counter to check out and ask for ice he said he could not give me any. He became very rude at which point I asked for the owners name he refused. Also stated never advertised free breakfast. Obviously they do advertised free breakfast all over the building...

The bed was the hardest bed imaginable. The staff is sweet but it didn't make up for the experience. The free breakfast is a joke but then I cant imagine they get enough customers to do a nice breakfast.
