Stayed there in July, 2016 while on our way back from southwest Colorado. I just needed to find a nice clean place at a good value. This place was exactly that. It was a very pleasant stay. Rooms are very nice. You cannot beat the value. Very clean and convenient to I-40. The place is modern and parking is easy.

Very clean and pet friendly. When we walked in we realized the room power was not on had to have front desk reset the breaker (the lack of a/c have the room a humid feeling). Friendly staff and helpful met our needs. Great location near historic Route 66.

This was a former Microtel Hotel. Stayed her twice on our trip to AZ. Friendly and helpful staff!! Nice pool. Awesome full breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits & gravey, danish, muffins, cereal, great coffee, etc. Complementary water is available in the lobby and 2 bottles in the room.

We stayed here for one night on our way home. It was very easy to book in advance and easy to find. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a smoking hotel with some non smoking rooms. We were able to get what we asked for but paid extra for first floor. This was necessary because they don't have...

Small clean room, comfortable mattress (3 tiny pillows), adequate breakfast (though no yogurt) .. But a/c unit was loud, fan was constant, and made it very difficult to get any sleep! Reserved a 2nd floor room, even though stairs only.

We were greatly surprised. After a 12 hour drive we landed on a little paradise. Great customer service, they offer coffee, orange juice and water 24 hr a day. Very clean, and newly remodeled. The mattresses were great, maybe new, we had a restful night. Decent continental breakfast and a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

There seemed be no average-priced rooms here until we came across this place. It is located just off the interstate, and someone told us it used to be the Microtel. We had been traveling for several nights, and the beds here were the best of anywhere we stayed. The AC worked well, even though it was nearly 100 when we...

The hotel is clean and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Wish all hotels had this type of service. My one main problem is that we are on the 1st floor and we can hear every step the people above our room takes. Would definitely recommend staying on the second floor.

This hotel was very convenient, just off the highway, and still within easy reach of the main attractions on the Route 66 main strip. It is individually owned, which you don't encounter so often, and the front desk staff is very knowledgeable. A very large two-story room houses the good-sized pool and a hot tub area. There isn't a lot...

This place was a real surprise in the middle of no where. It is on Historic Route 66 and the price was exactly as advertised! The staff was very friendly and I was shocked to find that this hotel was not new but it looked like it had just been built. The indoor pool and hot tub was worth the...
