My wife found what appeared to be black mold in our bathroom. She reported it to the desk and the attendant came and cleaned the suspect area. Then we went out to eat. When we returned our room key had been deactivated. We were told we would have to check out and go to another motel because there were no... More

I made reservations before string to guarantee our stay at a wonderful hotel. We stayed here several years ago when we had young children for the indoor pool. The hotel was clean and well maintained.

Comfortable bed, fairly clean (shower curtain was horrible), but we had a very noisy upstairs guest who walked around for hours (where was he going?). The breakfast was not as experienced by others, just eggs, biscuits and gravy, toast and danish. We will try somewhere else next time.

After a very long day we found this oasis for the night. It was clean, good breakfast and great staff. The extra touch of bottled water was nice. If you send one of their postcards they will even pay the postage. Thank you for a great restful night. We will definitely be back.

Needed a roadside stop. Rate was a bit high, but the desk clerk 'sold' me on staying here based on the amazing breakfast that she described...Santa Fe scramble, sausage, fresh waffles, incredible pastries. She advised that many people stay just for the breakfast. We learned that it was an average ** continental breakfast with watery powdered eggs. There was salsa... More

This hotel was a little off I 40. Closer to downtown which I considered a plus. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The beds were very comfortable. The air conditioner worked but was older. Very clean with a nice indoor pool. Be sure to eat at Del's when you stay here. It was great.
