Very nice little motel on the edge of town. Quiet and comfortable with throwback furnishings and decorations. The owner/manager is super friendly and accommodating, and she is always available. For the price it's a bargain. We have stayed twice and definitely will stay again.

After seeing the inn online, it reminded me of all those old "motel" movie scenes. Looking for a 1 night stay over on our way to Boulder, we decided to be adventurous and give it a try. Not expecting too much for the $68 charged, we were really pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious, clean, decor thoughtfully put together and...

We stayed one night and it was perfect. Good wifi, heater, comfy beds and the owners very friendly. Couldn't stay for the breakfast since we were leaving early. Would stay again for sure. Gave us more towels. The decoration is very vintage and super cool.

First I'd like to start off by saying I've worked on the road many years and stayed in my share of motels from small to big chain motels. This motel is absolutely amazing. The staff was very friendly from the front desk to the house keeping ..I stayed in the room called the man cave...it had a theme of cars...

Thanks for staying with us, and glad you enjoyed the Man Cave. Isn't that bar the best thing ever? Of course it would be even better with booze in it, but that can be arranged for your next visit--just ask!

This was a very good hotel and the trip was amazing. Good heating system and good shower pressure. Pet friendly in some rooms and smoker friendly in others. Cute decorations. Good breakfast. Will be coming back.

The room was clean. The decorating was very cute. Not your average blank hotel room. Bright splashes of color with photos and pictures on the walls made this feel a little more like a guest room at a friend's house and less like an anonymous hotel room. We ended up next door to a family with children on one side...

Friendly and clean. The heat was slow to warm up but worked fine the rest of the time. The desk was helpful about late arrival and early check out. The room had minimal comforts-no coffee cups-no coffee or tea. That was only available in the office. The internet was very weak in room 1 so the farther from the office...

Hi, Charles-- Thanks for staying with us! Sorry about the slow internet, we are working with Century Link to (hopefully) improve that.

I wanted a bargain motel and got one. The sheets on both beds were not clean - full of little black hairs and the bed coverlets were stained and dirty. The owner helped me take my bags to a new room, which was full of skull artwork and books. When I went to pay the charge was $10 more than...

Management response:

I am so sorry for your bad experience. Usually, the housekeeping staff does an exemplary job, but obviously in this case that was not so. The room I moved you into is #13, so it has a not-scary horror theme, which many people enjoy. As for the price issue, on my end it was showing the full price, and as...
