Circle "R" Motel is located right on Hwy 2, across from Amtrak Station. The noise level is tolerable, although coming to the National Park, one expects some peace and quiet.
The room itself was quite spacious and clean, microwave, fridge, coffee machine, hair dryer, wall A/C - everything worked; nice hot shower (but it looked like someone used shower curtain to wipe dirty boots).
There was an ironing board on a wall but no iron which sort of denies the purpose.
I liked the mattress, pillows were not bad either, towels clean and thick.
Walls, on opposite, are thin, you can hear your neighbors quite well.
Room was dark, there were three lamps but still not enough light. Wi-Fi signal was better on a parking lot than in my room.
No clue about TV - do no watch it and do not care, but there is a large screen TV in a room, with dish programming.
There are some restaurants and cafes right next door, did not have a chance to check them out.
Now, about service - people are nice and trying to be helpful, but management sucks. If you arrive after dark, make sure you give advance notice, because otherwise the office will be locked, and since there is no cell service in the area, its not very likely you'll be able to call to check in. I was lucky that the guy accidentally heard me knocking the door, otherwise I'd be spending night elsewhere.
There were no hangers in the room, it took few reminders to get them. Missing light bulb at the room entrance - asked for it but in three days still no bulb. No handle at the hallway door, need to open and close the door using a hole where the handle suppose to go.
Overall, it was not perfect but still pretty good. I would give it a higher score if not for the price tag. At $50-70, it would be OK, but at around $100 per night, one has higher expectations.
Perhaps, owners believe they can charge premium without providing proper level of service because of the location.
