I read the reviews of this motel on trip advisor and on the good recommendations I called ahead and booked a Queen room for Saturday night June 15, 2003. We got there about 8:15pm and checked in. Even though I had reserved a room at the El Rancho the lady told us that they were all booked up. She said that they also owned the Desert Motel across the street and only had 1 room available over there. Well let me tell you, that was the nastiest, crapiest motel room we have ever stayed in. The smell when you walked in was foul. The carpet was dirty with holes in it. The drapes were all torn and sagging. The blanket had holes in it. But the worst thing was going into the tiny bathroom. You could smell the mold and we literally almost fell through the floor next to the shower. The toilet was loose because the floor was so rotten underneath the entire bathroom. It is a LAWSUIT waiting to happen. I called around but there was not another motel in town that had a room available. My husband checked the sheets and they looked clean and laundered but we shoved off the blanket and bedspread. Needless to say we did not shower. We both slept lousy and couldn't wait to get out of there the next morning.
