Clean room, and comfortable bed. Ac works great and wifi is fast. Really nothing to complain about, it's a place to stay for the night, what more can you ask for? Best price in town. Staff was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I ever come through town

Inexpensive,clean and better than expected. Our stay was short and we travel with our dog. Our options are few so this worked for us. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean, water was hot. No breakfast but it has a coffee maker. The tv has cable and it had a good heating system.

Very nice motel. Location is supreme-- it's close to many restaurants and even some of Liberal's attractions, like Dorothy's house. The rooms are clean, especially the bathrooms. Bed was comfortable. Felt very safe here. Plus, the staff was welcoming and accommodating to my needs.

Hubby and I stopped here for a night on a long road trip. We checked in pretty late on a super rainy night but the front desk operator was in good spirits and was helpful and friendly. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, linens in the bathroom were clean and adequate. My only gripes were the window heating/cooling unit...

I needed a hotel for a reasonable weekly price and had stayed at other Budget Host hotels in the past. The owners are very nice, the hotel is in a convenient location and the bed is comfortable. It ends there. There is very little water pressure and the shower fixures are horrible. I had to call the office after my...

Owners mislead you. Pool was out of order, they said because of the cold weather, but it was obvious that the pool hadn't been in use for a long time. Free breakfast was 20% off at a local restaurant. I was not satisfied with the dumpy room, the owner didn't care and was only concerned that she got my credit...

The place needed an update and many repairs. We managed to get some rest for one night while traveling but wouldn't return. When we wanted to ask questions in the morning, there was no one in the office. A note said she would return soon. Minimal comforts, old furniture. There was a wall unit for heat and air conditioning. It...

My friend and I stayed at La Fonda for our pheasant hunt in the surrrounding area. The staff was pleasant and friendly and check-in went quickly. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable.

I have stayed here several times before on business. A great value for the money. Non-assuming outside, but very, very nice motel rooms with reasonable rates and friendly helpful staff. Excellent family restaurant adjacent. Rooms have all the pluses of more expensive motels - big TVs (good cable selection), recliner, radio, hairdryer, microfridge, coffee. Rooms vary in size (and price)...
