Not alot of space to move around but I didn’t expect to do yoga in my room anyways. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the western theme right on!! The owner was friendly and helpful giving us a few restaurant recommendations and sharing the story of his move from Las Vegas.
The “parking lot” is filled with benches, swings, wood carvings and a few left-behind grills. It’s a good place to get the morning started after brewing up a cup of coffee in your kitchenette-ette (not a typo the area IS small.)
Shower was hot, locale convenient and price was right.

We stayed here due to other Trip Advisor feedback. We loved it. It says "rustic rooms" on their signage which could put some people off but we found it charming and creative. Most important, it was CLEAN. They covered so many amenities that some of our other pricier places did not. Great value and fair for what you get. Not fancy but very comfy.

DO NOT accidentally miss the old town of Salidas if you are passing through. I could have spent a couple days here. One home on Main Street had four bucks grazing and sleeping in their side yard. While I appreciate this isn't always in the homeowners best interest, it sure made for some delight on our part. great place.

Room Tip: We got # 10 which was large and had a kitchenette and two queen beds......one more comfy than the ot...

This is not a luxury hotel!!!!! But that's not what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were extremely clean - including the bathrooms. It's just what we needed for an inexpensive night prior to rafting the next day. We even received a military discount. The only real issue we had was the smell of cigarette smoke in one of our rooms. Many reviewers say the rooms are tiny, but I honestly didn't think so. There was a flat-screen TV, refrigerator and microwave and 2 queen beds in our room. Plenty of space for all.

Room Tip: Room 2 has cracks in the door which were allowing cigarette smoke from outside to enter.

Room Tip: Only noisy if people leave their TV's on all night. Otherwise very quiet !

We stayed here for a night on our way to Dillon. It's a nice little motel, and the price is right. The rooms are small, but clean and well kept. We had a king size bed, a full kitchenette and a tiny bathroom. The fridge and the heater were noisy, which can be a problem for light sleepers since the room is so small. The decor was nice and rustic and we did see an elk as we drove in late in the afternoon. Overall a pretty nice place to spend the night, if you don't mind a small room.

It's one of those old motels, scrupulously clean. Despite being right on US 50, we heard no highway noise - drowned out by the window unit, which didn't quite cover the noise of the motorcycles at the next unit. The promised wifi never manifested itself. The tiny shower drained so slowly and the basin was so shallow that I was reduced to a sponge bath - totally unacceptable. There was no one to report this to when we left at 9 am.

This motel was the cutest motel ever. We stayed here as we were passing through on vacation .. The owners Patty And Robert have remodeled the rooms and the grounds. They put a lot of thought and love into the design of the rooms and grounds. The beds and pillows were very comfortable.. There hospitality was the best.. Thank you for an enjoyable stay..
