Five guys on a motorcycle adventure. Our needs are basic: clean, dark, quiet, and with safe parking for the bikes. This was our last stop before returning to Phoenix under record setting heat. To stay alive, we left at 0400 so all we wanted here was a couple of hours of sleep. It fit our needs perfectly.

Great staff, super friendly. Not as big a room as in other photos or bathroom, but clean. Nothing special but better than some main brand hotels in the area. House keeping only once a week which doesn't bother me. Small place so fills quickly. I'll definitely be staying here again.

I came through Parker, Az in May of 2015. The El Rancho is inexpensive, but very nice...and the staff and especially the manager (I wish I could remember her name) were just wonderful ! It isn't the Hilton, but I felt that it was very reasonable, very clean and very comfortable. The manager was so sweet...she could have given me... More

We prefer to avoid chain motels in favor of local mom & pop businesses. I checked prior reviews of this outfit and most were favorable. What I can say is that I made a reservation over the phone direct with Debbie (the proprietor). I gave a tentative date and expected to need two rooms (tentative because son was coming home... More

It looks a bit like a whole in the wall, but the rooms are very clean. Best air conditioning and best water pressure in the shower. Wonderful staff! I have stayed at many different places in Parker and this is my favorite. Even enjoy it more than the luxurious looking Blue Water casino and hotel. Best place to eat in... More

Room was okay for one night but don't think I'd want to stay much longer than that. Electrical plug ins for all our computers, etc., were very scarce. Bathroom was TINY! I know it's an old motor hotel but I think the bathroom in our motorhome was bigger than this one. Staff was friendly.

Debbie and Steve have done a very nice job with this old Motel. Our room was spacious, clean, neat and not overly worn. With a very comfortable king size bed, fridge, microwave, TV and cable, desk and clean spacious bathroom. It was surprisingly quiet and a very good value. I would definitely stay here again.

Debbie has done a wonderful job with this motel. Comfortable, quiet, clean and the bathroom in room 13 is amazing!!! Near town and restaurants it's a great place to stay for a night or a few days. No WiFi unfortunately is a drawback but it lends itself to a relaxing stay.
