Reviewed 30 September 2013

we chose this place because we like quirky places and were looking for something on Hwy 66. I wanted an in room jacuzzi and the only room they had was the bridal suite, since this trip was for our anniversary I thought why not. Why not is because the room was way too noisy. It is located above the office, the windows howl in the constant wind, there is no insulation we might as well have been in a tent next to the interstate it was so loud with truck noise all night long, the blinds do not shut out the light from the huge lights in the parking lot. Maybe the other rooms would have been better, but this one should not have been open for people to stay in that wanted to sleep or a romantic spot for a honeymoon. The jacuzzi was just a large tub in the bathroom. We would not stay here again.

Room Tip: choose a room other than room 200

We knew this was a tourist location as we found it on the Route 66 guide. The place is very colourful and the food was good! The steak is cooked very well and the place is extremely friendly. Their is a maze, shooting laser gun gallery which is fun. Liquor store two exits down which was great value as well!!

A small rather dark room was our one night stop after a day in the saddle.The suede bed covers just felt wrong, and not very pleasant. 2 of us slept in single beds. The bathroom was cramped and the lighting was poor. On the plus side, damn fine food across the way, and really nice staff.

Room Tip: Furthest from the road and restaurant if you want an early night.

We had a big ol meal at the Steak Ranch and then decided to stay here for the night. We were pleasantly surprised at the comfort of this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The price was great and the decor is unique and fun!

If you like water pressure in a shower (I know I do), you will be disappointed with this one. It barely trickles and it does not get warm. At all. The room is cute, stays super dark, no noise, comfy bed. But that dang shower....grrrrr.

One of my favourite places we stayed in on 66. It is the details that made the room, the cushions on the chairs and the slight switches are (Lone) star shaped and the staff were great and the beds were comfortable. We had one or two drinks that night and got a wee bit boisterous but there was no complaining or fuss about anything which was great! It is also connected to the bar and restaurant of the same name and that is a great place to eat and drink!
