Reviewed 24 July 2014

This place is a jewel! comfortable, well appointed, the coffee makers are full size! Easy online booking and a central location with oversize parking available. This is a great place to spend a little or a lot of time. Perfect for a trail stop with the post office behind and the grocery store next door refuel and refresh while readying for your next adventure!

Liked this hotel. We have passed it many times and were lucky to find a room at midnight. Desk clerk was nice. Room was more than we needed for just a night. It was clean and homey. As a mom traveling with my children and a dog I felt very safe. One of the kids favorite places to stay on our trip.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is not always easy when dealing with little ones to find that kind of time. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Finding a room late at night can indeed be a challenge and we were glad that we could accommodate your family. We hope you stop and see us the next time you are traveling through Craig.

We rented several rooms and found that each room is decorated on a different theme. I ended up in a room with a Railroad theme. The room was clean and well furnished. Internet/Wireless was good.

It's obvious the owners have put a lot of work into the rooms. The only suggestion I would have is that they need to work on the exterior view from the east, as it looks kinda rundown when you are coming back from the store.

There are several restaurants in short walking distance.

I would happily stay here again in the future.

Thank you for writing a review of our property. We appreciate it when customers take the time to let others know about their experiences. We appreciate your comments and are working on repainting the east side of the motel. This might be what you are referring to. Other than that we will take an objective look and see what else we can do to spruce up the east side. We do indeed have different themes in each room - all related to activities or animals in our immediate area. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again if your travels bring you through Craig.

We travel for business at least 3 wks out of the month. So we basically live in motels. We are always looking for value, cleanliness, and friendly folks. This place has it all. The kitchen is a plus with us being away from home so much it's nice to be able to have a home cooked meal.

Was very pleasantly surprised by this motel. The room (should say "rooms" since our suite had 2 large separate bedrooms) was very large and comfortable. Having a real kitchen was a great plus. Although you can tell that this is an older facility, it is very obvious that the owners take pride in maintaining the facility and keeping everything clean. We had no issues during our stay, but I'm confident the staff would have promptly resolved them for us. If you don't want to spend the money to stay in one of the chain hotels in Craig, this is by far the best lower-cost option in town - and, believe me, there are some other lower-cost options in Craig that would have to pay me to stay!

Room Tip: Not sure if all rooms have 2 entrances, but it was very handy to be able to use the back entrance th...

we were shown 2 rooms, both were cozy and had full kitchens. nicely decorated. the room we chose had 2 queens and 2 twins - plenty for a traveling family. nice large flat screen TV, and fully decorated with Elk motif. the rooms were very clean and comfotable. no fitness center or pool, but we weren't looking for them. the price was reasonable. just being an overnite stay, we did not utilize the kitchen except for making coffee. but if we were going to stay a few days, this would be the place! convenient to grocery store and pharmacy if needed. centrally located for convenience.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our themed rooms have been a big hit. Each room has a different theme relative to this area. We also offer different sized rooms for different needs from small one bed rooms to the larger room that you were in. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

If you want a new motel with a huge room, this is not the place to stay.

If you want a clean, comfortable room with a kitchen, full size refrigerator, ceilng fan, and decorated in "elk" motif, then you will find this an excellent choice.

As a single traveller, the room was ideal. If there are two of you, it will be cozy. If there are more than two, it will be crowded. However, the kids will love the decor. I smiled when I walked into my room.

The front desk attendant was very pleasant and helpful. He gave me a quick overview of the town's dining establishment choices without being asked.

The room rate was very reasonable. If you are headed toward Steamboat Springs 30 miles to the east, you might want to take advantage of lower room rates here. If you want a large expensive luxurious room with jacuzzi, keep driving! This motel does not have a pool, fitness center or free breakfast either.

I carried my luggage 10 feet from the car to the room. This motel is typical of motels one would find in the 1960's throughout the country, a bit nostalgic for this writer.
