I have a wildlife fencing com!pany and we work across the country, often spending 200 nights in motels a year. I always look for a very clean motel with great service and excellent internet service in a location with lots of restaurants nearby, but also with refrigerators and microwaves in every room. We require a safe, quiet location where we... More

Clean rooms, friendly owners, great price. No frills motel, but the nostalgia took me back to my family's cross country vacations in the 1960's and early 1970's. I expected to see a wood grain station wagon pull in at any time

The worst ever!!! No really, ever!!! I actually think the bathrooms was the cleanest part of the room. Super old building and NASTY carpet. Sticky, dirty, breeding ground of a carpeted flooring mess!!! Need shoes on the entire time!!! Wouldn't let a wild animal eat off the floor!!! I've stayed in the real roach motels in my day, and this... More

We were looking for an economical motel for the night. Boy, did we find it and more. We walked into the lobby, but it was really a terrarium. The owners, Donna and Stan, are great and friendly folks. They even showed us their living apartment. The whole place was very clean, neat and organized. They are very hard workers. We... More

If this hotel is the 13th best in Dodge City I'd hate to see the other four. We'd had a lot of luck that trip with older, unique hotels but this was not one of them. The pillows were yellow. The floor was sticky. The neighbors were sketchy. Simply put, it was filthy. The man at the front desk was... More

I normally would NOT try a place this dated. But, after I read some of the reviews I gave it a reluctant try.... Very good decision!!! The owners are super nice people. At check-in he asked me if I like beef jerky, and then he gave me a bag that he had made, how nice right? The room was really... More

This place didn't have the cleanest rooms. I had the worst service from the owners. The price was not that bad. I wished they would have more variety in the in different types of rooms. I didn't have the best impression, when i went there.

We stayed here one night. We love old places with character. The sign is terrific and was a big selling point for us. Beyond that, there isn't much charm. The room was clean enough, but smelled like it had been heavily sprayed with air freshener to cover up cigarette smoke, even though it was a non-smoking room. They provide soap... More

Everything was booked up in Dodge City and the reviews were not it too bad so we called in and booked. They were friendly and said they would hold for us and only had 2 rooms. Check in was fine and our room was tucked in the corner. First impression was not good. It does have the 70s look with... More
