We called the hotel directly on June 1st 2013 had three rooms and 3 confirmation numbers. Arrived on June 26th saw sign that said no vacancy. I thought no problem here at 11am. Walked in and was told no openings. Had been booked solid for several weeks. I pulled out confirmation numbers, the date I called the name of the person I talked with. She found only one room. ( 9 people traveling).
Gen was very nice and very upset at what was happening. She started calling other Hotels no rooms!!!! The town is a railroad and oil center and they are going through a boom and workers are being brought in to do an overhaul, and everything is gone.
I was told that they have this problem all the time. The computer program does not handle the week by week people and thus common travelers arrive to find NO ROOM AT THE INN!!! Others arrived after us with the same problem.
I will tell you that Gen did all that she knew how to do, I am grateful for her help. We had made reservations for 3 rooms and 2 nights. We got one room the first night and two the second. Poor management.!! BEWARE>>>>
The Inn is old, but they do keep in nice condition all considered, for the age. There are a lot of mismanagement problems. If they can get the the computer program updated and the staff trained this could be a nice affordable nights stay.
Beware that the fast food places are suffering too. They cannot handle all the workers in town and run very poorly. Local restaurants do much better.
This is a difficult location to get caught without rooms. It's HOT and a dry area make sure you are prepared. MY advice is NOT to BOOK here until problems fixed.
