Oro Valley, Arizona
Reviewed 7 July 2016

We had the double queen room. It had a balcony, a kitchen, a big vanity area. The free made to order omelette was delicious. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and inviting. It was very close to the July 4th fireworks display.

Our check in was great. The young man who check us in was very professional, friendly and helped us with several problems by going the extra mile. Breakfast was very good with lots of options. We had a great view. The walking path along the river was an added bonus.

Diriamba, Nicaragua
Reviewed 30 June 2016

This is not a new place and retains a certain quaintness. The price was more than we expected but this was offset by the park across the street, the Japanese garden within walking distance (free!) and the use of the bikes belonging to the hotel. The bikes were a real bonus. Breakfast was delicious with made-to-order omelets and homemade banana...

Excellent, well managed old school motel in perfect location across the street from the Snake River park and a short stroll to the falls. Friendly, competent and fast checkin. Large, very comfortable rooms with fridge and microwave. Fast wifi. 10 minutes' drive to great dinner at Texas Roadhouse.
