“Charming Motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2006

We stopped at this motel as the weather was bad and we just wanted to get a good night sleep to continue our trip the next morning. We really lucked out by stopping at this motel. The charm of the lobby and the smiling and helpful staff made it worh the stop. Our room was a standard room but it was clean and comfortable and the lace curtains in the window added the home touch. The breakfast in the morning is good (juice, toast, bagels, cereal, donuts, coffee and numerous varities of tea).
The staff makes this place. They are the friendliest individuals I have encountered in motels. Also, you can't beat their rates. I would HIGHLY recommend this motel to all my friends and family.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2006

We stayed at this motel based upon the "exceptional" rating in the National Historic Route 66 Federation's Dining and Lodging Guide, and perhaps we had high expectations. It's really average. Our non-smoking room smelled smoky, the wireless Internet didn't work, and the breakfast was just average (not the deluxe Cont. breakfast mentioned in the guide). It was clean, safe and the staff was pleasant, but it wasn't what I expected.
