We stay here for a night. It's a good choice. Our room is very clean which I like very much. The size of the room could be a little bigger but it's okay. There is a coffeemaker, microwave and fridge in the room.

We stayed here one night before biking the Kokapeli Trail. It was super convenient being with walking distance of town -- stores, restaurants, and bike shops. The room was simple and very clean. There was a small breakfast with coffee, bagels, fruit and NUTELLLA!! I would recommend and stay here again.

We were very pleased with our stay here. Bicycles are allowed in the rooms which any cyclist knows is a high priority. The room was clean and comfortable. It's an easy walk to shops and restaurants in downtown Fruita.

A wonderful stay! A quiet little inn, very well maintained. After a long motorcycle ride I was ready to relax. Upon opening the door, I was delighted. Homey and so clean it shined. I highly recommend this hotel and the price was beyond great.
