This motel is in a very run-down part of Gallup across the street from the train yards. There were several empty and boarded-up buildings. We had a reservation, but when we pulled up at 4:30 PM we thought the place was closed. There were no cars in the lot except for the one under a tarp in front of the...

Your constructive feedback is appreciated... Thank you for notifying us of your recent experience... We appreciate that you took the time to share... You confess your mistake but you did not notify on review that on front desk help out for non smoking room but you deny.

This place was nice, very good price and clean. Offered breakfast, and internet. I liked the pottery art work in the lobby area. The staff was polite, and good. The manager was helpful with directions. We were there for the Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial.

The couple who operate this hotel are some of the warmest people I have ever met. The rooms are perfect for the price, and impeccably clean with lots of soft fluffy towels. The television I'd a flat screen with 500 channels. Yes, trains do go by, (very few last night) but are not loud enough to be a bother, and...

My family and I stopped here on our way home from Texas. I am always kind of iffy when we chose to stay somewhere on the road. I always look for cleanliness first, good beds, breakfast, and hospitality. This place had all of that. We came in late and the owner was still very polite and helpful, although I had...

Owners are a very hospitable couple. Neat and clean hotel, with fenced parking lot Location is suitable for family. They offer weekly and monthly rental pricing for anyone looking for longer stays. This is also a good value for price paid and is great for pit stops on Route66/ I-40. Continental breakfast is offered. The downtown restaurants are a short...

There are a few things we absolutely must have in a hotel--good bedding, lots of hot water, extra towels and a responsive staff. This place had all of that. It wasn't super fancy but it was reasonably priced and in addition to the standard breakfast, the owners brought out an Indian bread when we asked about them about their traditional...

The Indian couple checking us in was incredibly friendly. The hotel is definitely dated but you can tell they are doing their best with what they have. The beds were older but moderately comfortable. The breakfast offerings were quite limited so my family skipped it in favor of a hot breakfast elsewhere. The service up front is well worth any...

We needed a budget place to rest our heads for a night along route 66 - arrived late and checked out early. This motel had everything that we needed. Check-in was quick and easy, room was clean with basic amenities, decor a little dated. Trains were fairly frequent but they didn't disturb us during the night (to be honest, I'm...

This motel was a good value. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean, although the carpet and furniture was a bit old. The bed was nice and comfy. I didn't have a problem with the train noise at all. The noise from the guests upstairs was more bothersome than the train noise. I recommend this place if you...
