“It's a place to crash”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

11:30 p.m. I had no reservations anywhere and was flat out done driving for the night. I chose this place mainly because it was the first hotel I saw. Fortunately despite this I was able to check in without any problems. I wouldn't try this during homecoming or graduation or whatever, but otherwise you're probably OK.

The hotel is very dated and basic. It's also clear it has a large number of long-term tenants (unsurprising given that Moscow is a college town). That said, the bed was comfortable, the room was relatively clean and the price was right. That's what I needed that night. As a matter of fact I wound up staying again two nights later simply because it was in my comfort zone at that point.

This is not the first place you'd choose in Moscow, but in a pinch it's perfectly fine.

Right off of the highway, but you don't get the traffic noise. Very comfortable and clean. The place is dated, although it seems to be very well maintained. The owners are responsive to any needs, and they do offer a free breakfast.

Room Tip: I prefer to stay on the street side, instead of around the rear side.

The motel is owned by a very friendly couple that do a great job of making the rooms comfortable. We normally stay at the La Quinta in Moscow but decided to take a chance.
The room was large, very clean, and let us bring our dog. It cost 1/2 what La Quinta did and was within walking distance of downtown. It was also quieter. La Quinta has a lot of inner room noise.
Its not the fanciest looking. It needs a make over but the rooms are real nice and you can park in front of your room.

My room was so gross. Smelled like smoke, the other people staying around us were scary. My husband wouldn't even let me outside without him. First motel we saw as we pulled into town, it was late and we didn't want to drive all over looking for something different. That wont happen again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012 via mobile

Room was big, beds were comfortable, WIFI worked great, fridge and microwave included. Friendly staff. Breakfast, although we didnt have it. Nice bathroom with a good shower. Room a little dated looking for some peoples taste, but it was very clean. I cannot complain since the room was only $60!!! I would have prefered a nice recliner or sofa to sit on since the room was so big, the old wooden chairs were not comfortable and the TV was only a 20 inch 1980's Goodwill TV......Overall, staying here wasn't a terrible experience...we would stay again. The air and heat worked well too. There is a motel in town called the 'Palouse Motel'... STAY AWAY from there!!! The Hillcrest Motel is 100x better and cheaper! Just drive a little further into town to find it :)
