Spent one night here on our way to Utah. Nice clean room and friendly staff. The usual toast and cereal, fruit and yogurt breakfast options, plus biscuits and gravy and fresh cinnamon rolls. Easy access to I15. We would stay here again.

Booking for a last minute trip was seamless. Staff was genuinely friendly. The hotel room was much cleaner than expected for such an inexpensive rate. The area seemed safe enough and was a far enough distance from the freeway that the noise level from traffic was minimal. That being said, the walls do allow a good deal of sound from... More

Check in went well and room was older but nice and clean. However the people who they put in the next room had a small dog. As soon as they settled in they left. The dog proceeded to whine and bark until they returned after midnight. Even then it would start and someone in the room would tell it to... More

Not a bad hotel at all for the price. A little dated but still comfortable. Breakfast was small but front desk ladies were sweet. The beds were comfortable and room was clean. If the price is right I will stay again.

Clean, convenient and affordable! This locally owned family motel has been around awhile. It's right off of the interstate, rooms are very clean and comfortable and the price is tight! Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. I will definitely stay here again on return trips!

It was reasonably priced, clean and quiet. The breakfast was acceptable. The location on Broadway ensures that you can easily leave town via the Interstate, or highway 20/26 without delay. It is a great place to stop as a "layover" on a longer trip.

The Room was clean and large, fairly quiet stay. Lots of hot water for showers. But Internet was awful and basically unusable and their breakfast was awful! I would stay here again for the price and room but would plan accordingly for a different breakfast option.

We came here last night after long hours of driving from yellowstones. Receptions were most helpful to us. Not expensive. Clean big room for two of us. Delicious home made cookies to welcome us. Breakfast were surprisingly composed of everything we need in the morning as shown in attached photos.

Positives are large room, shampoo and other items, good parking, alarm clock, refrigerator and microwave, good price, enough lighting, bathtub as opposed to just shower stall, huge vanity, good bed, great breakfast (waffles, yogurt, danish, biscuits and gravy at least on the weekend when I stayed, orange juice, etc)
