“Excellent Value!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This motel is worth the drive off of Interstate 80. The staff was friendly and helpful. Popcorn, cookies and juice were all available when we arrived. We also got a card to get 10 percent off of dinner at 5 different restaurants. Room was clean and updated. Pets were allowed and have a nice area to walk them. I highly recommend this hotel - pet friendly, secure and worth the drive.

I was tired when I arrived, the lady at the desk was helpful and gave excellent directions to several restaurants that gave discounts for the hotel's guests. They have a lovely patio out the back door that offers a lakeside view with plenty of seating, and you can fish in the lake free of charge!
The sleeping area and bathroom was very clean and spacious. The room was so quiet, I had no trouble at all getting to sleep and getting a great night's sleep on a clean comfortable bed
In the evening they offer fresh baked cookies, the night I was there they offered chocolate chip !
I had no reservation, but it was no problem getting a room even though there was a large event happening in the town that night. The lady at the desk suggested that I may want to wait until the event started so that I would not have any wait time getting served in a restaurant.
I would stay here anytime I was in the area.

Clean room, friendly staff, very ample parking for a big semi, very good rate for travelers and truckers alike. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it for an overnight or a few days stay. Just over 1 mile to Fonner Park and Heartland Event Center, with many types of restaurants across the street and down each side of this street nearby!

Bed was low, firm, but ultimately comfortable, and they had a fairly good breakfast offering. Walls are thinner, as are all older Motels, but ear plugs are a standard item I pack for travel.

The rooms are spacious & cozy, and if you request a backside room you will get a Lakeside view, cheap rates for a great stay. Bring your fishing gear as fishing is free, just no swimming.

They do have smoking rooms, so you might ask for a Non-smoking room further away from those rooms if you don't smoke.

Pets are free, but the carpet in my smoking room was clean, no spots or pet hair and they make fresh cookies every evening!

Room Tip: They do have smoking rooms, so you might ask for a Non-smoking room further away from those rooms if...

I stopped here for the night while traveling to Salt Lake City. It is located a mile or so from highway but worth the drive. It isn't fancy but was very clean and staff was very friendly. It was 2 am when I checked in and it took no time and I was in my room. It was very clean and bed was very comfy. Bathroom was spotless as well. The walls were insulated well because I didn't hear a sound all night. If you are in the area and need a good nights rest this is your place. If ever I am in this area again I will definitely be stopping here to sleep.

The property was spacious and clean and they had parking for over-sized vehicles, I was in town for a week for business. Checked in and was greeted by two friendly ladies who promptly checked me in without any problems even though I didn't have reservation. Upon checking into my room I found it clean spacious and clean carpet with no stains or holes,my room had twin beds and the where clean and free of holes and stain and over all comfortable. The bathroom was nice with the appropriate amount of towels and wash cloths, I also had a nice microwave and fridge. Overall it was a very nice room. I would stay here again!

We found this place driving down I-80 on our vacation. The front desk was great! They gave us directions and told us a great place to eat. The back deck area is beautiful with ducks and geese swimming in it. The front desk gave us popcorn to feed them. Our kids really enjoyed that. We will stay here again if ever passing through the area!

Room Tip: Get a room facing the lake in the back. Great view with ducks and geese.

Looking at some of the other reviews of this hotel I am not sure I stayed at the same place. The lobby was filthy, the help was surly, the smell of mildew hit you in the face as soon as you opened the door to the room. I have no doubt that the filters in the window air conditioner units have not been changed since the turn of the century. My advice is to look elsewhere.
