We didn't mind the rules about smoking, pets, marijuana. No problem for us. Kept things quiet and comfortable. There is no air conditioning, as the elevation cools down the night time temps. We spent 2 nights here. The staff was glad to give recommendations on activities, and provided towels for us to take with us to the Hot Springs. This...

Read the reviews by the smokers that gave a bad rating and you will want to stay here even more! How nice to stay at a place where somebody isn't smoking just outside my window. A true salvation for us non-smokers. Rooms are very clean and modern and great to be near a park and fishing. I would recommend this...

We loved our stay here. Quiet and no fuss, and we did not mind the rules. They were displayed clearly and the hosts have probably their reasons for enforcing them. The room was spotless and the beds were lovely. I personally enjoyed the little detail with the black make-up remover flannell in the bathroom. Wish more places would do this....

I'm very glad we stayed here and would do it again in a heartbeat. The room worked great and was a very good value. I for one LIKED the rules (no pets/smoking/marijuana). We didn't have to worry about folks who don't care if they annoy the many who don't want to smell smoke or hear barking dogs when we're trying...

Worst experience I've ever had at a motel. I've had my shares of low rate chain hotels, bear in mind. The signs & contract day no smokers, which to any reasonable person would mean no smoking in the rooms or on the property. I had been trying to quit smoking, but I had ONE cigarette OFF the property. I rolled...

I wish I had read the reviews before I booked this place. I understood there was a no smoking policy here. My adult son who smokes 3-5 cigarettes per day did not smoke anywhere on the property. Actually I was unaware he even smoked! We traveled here for a mini vacation and to watch the meteor shower. Planned the trip...

We planned on staying here until we had a very rude reception from the woman who owns the place. One person in our group was a smoker, she had no plans of smoking anywhere near the place but we were treated like we had leprasy or something. We reluctantly got a room only to change our mind.This place is run...

We had stayed here before but we previously were given a much larger room. Although the room was small it was very clean! We thought for the price we paid there should have been some shampoo included. It would have been nice to have a coffee maker in the room, although coffee was supplied in the mornings in the lobby....

Considering the type of motel the room was clean and supplied ok. The issues were, the internet was weak and couldn't be used. I called the office they said just keep trying. The signal from across the street was better. I don't travel a great deal but some, so checking the room alarm clock was something I wasn't in the...
