Our first stop on a 4-weeks roadtrip in the US. No problem when we missed the connecting flight from Sweden to Las Vegas and got stuck in London and had to change our booking from three to two nights. Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms with a nostalgic touch, walking distance to restaurants and historic downtown, big and very well...

For us, this was a one night stay and that is all I could handle. Very plain and the bathroom did not make me want to shower in there. It wasn't dirty, just no upgrades. Everything seemed old and worn. There was a cute retro café around to the side of the motel.

Nice owners and clean room. First decent nite of sleep I have had in a week. Near a great little diner for breakfast. Pool looks nice too! Great value, I think and would stay here again. Just like the old, cool motor lodges of yesterday year. Love it!

The staff is outstanding. The rooms are doable. Clean but out of date. It is clear the staff works hard and takes good care of those staying there but some updates would make the stay more comfortable. Mainly the beds are warn and the decor out of date.

Lovely old motel in an excellent location. Comfy beds, clean rooms, within walking distance to downtown attractions. Pet friendly with a lovely park across the street. We had a room with a kitchenette, which was great. The bathroom was large and updated. Very limited TV channels and weak internet were the only downsides. Old furnishings and carpeting but they don't...

This place was really awesome. All of the staff was very friendly, the room was comfortable and clean and it was close to everything. Just stayed one night to attend an auction. Will definitely stay there again when we go back.

This is not a swank fancy place but it is clean and well cared for. If you are traveling in Nevada and don't want to put up with the mayhem in Las Vegas this is a great place to take a break. An excellent Mexican Restaurant is next door with eat in or take out. The young couple at the...

If you think it's a fun, quaint idea to stay at a local nostalgic motel in BC, don't pick this one. Foul. Old stinky furnishings. Thin sheets. Thin bedspread. Antiquated shower. I didn't even want to pick up the phone to call front desk because it was grimy. And I'm sure the housekeeping does all it can to keep the...

I'm writing primarily to express my gratitude for the extra service we received from the staff of El Rancho Motel. (Below will be a review of the motel itself.) We left yesterday morning and as soon as we finished returning our rental car in Las Vegas, we realized we left a bag in the parking lot of the motel. We...

No way was this modern in any sense. Very basic, somewhat gloomy and worn...old, outdated. On the plus side it was roomy and clean and within walking distance to several restaurants. Another plus was the refrigerator. It had an outside pool that appeared clean but we did not use it. We did not appreciate the heavy smoke from the outside...
