We stopped here around 1am, driving from Phoenix to the East coast based on good reviews from Trip Advisor. All we needed was a place to sleep. We called about 8pm and gave our card info over the phone. Got the room number and then used a lock box on our room door to get the door key as the lobby was closed that late. Be aware you need to make arrangements for a late check in, but it was easy.
The room was comfortable, clean, and we felt safe. We were two women traveling alone.
We found the beds comfortable.
It's an older property, an old style highway side motel, so don't expect a new building or anything fancy. It's not upscale in the slightest, not even a little bit. However, we found it exactly what we needed, a safe and easy place to stay.
They had a nice small breakfast in the lobby in the morning, of a muffin, coffee and banana. There are local places to eat if you wish a full breakfast.
It's an old courtyard style parking lot in the center of the outer rim of rooms, so you park directly in front of your room. All ground floor and easy access if one has mobility issues.
I don't remember a whole lot about it as we were so extremely tired, but I do remember we slept like rocks, the view was wonderful and we found it clean and comfortable.
The front office staff were courteous, helpful and friendly. It seemed to have high occupancy so one can only assume others have found this place good, as well.
I recommend this place.
