We have stayed here previously and are pleased that the original knotty pine paneling is still there. The newly remodeled queen and king suites meet the needs of all. Quiet. Has a nice little park with picnic table and outdoor grill. Very friendly, helpful staff. Se habla Espanol, too.

This is late review, but I have to make it finally - August 2015. First of all it was not on my TomTom navigation on that time and we have to navigate to address only, but finally we got there. That was looking not bad from outside at the time. Room was clean and big enough with 2 single beds....

There was no one at the reception, we had to go to a hotel nearby where the receptionist was extremely unpleasant. She was surprised we had booked a room at Prospector Motor Ldge through Internet.

We showed up and the place was deserted. Get A Room customer service was not very helpful. I haven't determined if I was charged for this reservation. We ended up staying the night in a nearby motel. Pretty surreal experience.

I arrived late (early a.m.). The $55 (incl tax) room I was given was clean with a rustic feel. Wood paneled walls, a large bed, clean bath, and a old tube t.v. added to the charm. No frills, but clean & safe.

Disgusting place, we turned up after midnight as we had told them, no one let us in so we stayed in the car, even though we could see someone in the office, DONT stay there it looks disgusting, as we saw inside a room, and there are better motels near by. Save your money and go elsewhere.

We ended at this place after a long day. The check-in was with some guy who was so high he could barely sleep. Rooms are dirty and completely old. I guess you could survive one day there as we did but I can not recommend this place to anyone.

Young man at the desk, Ty, was courteous & pleasant. 2-queen room, coffee maker, fridge, & microwave is very convenient. The building is older, but clean. I would definitely stay here again for the price!
