We were impressed with the cleanliness of the room. We arrived late at night, it was cold outside, but the heat was on in the room and it was nice and toasty, as was the lobby. Linens were spotless and smelled fresh, that should be a given, but we've done enough travelling and stayed in enough independent motels to know... More

I hadn't stayed here for a few years (I've been spending the night in Evanston twice a year for the last decade as part of a regular road trip), so I was pleased this summer to see that the rooms have been completely remodeled and they now seem competitive with the surrounding motels in amenities et al. The place is... More

We asked to see a room. The desk clerk dug through a couple of boxes and a key board for a handful of keys and we followed him outside. He knocked on a couple of doors as though half expecting to find the room he was about to show us occupied. An older man came out from one of the... More

Traveling to Denver from Nevada, we were needing a place to crash. Look, it was 2 beds for under $55 including tax, no one is expecting a 5-star room. But it was CLEAN. Stuff was a little dated and worn, but beds were comfortable, sheets white and crisp, and again ROOM WAS CLEAN. If you need a clean comfy room... More

I needed a place to sleep. That's it. I was getting in late and leaving early. I asked the front desk clerk if the rooms were clean and he handed me a key to check out a room before I checked in. It was spotless and huge and the a/c kicked butt. That's all I needed! (Oh, and my bathroom... More

Cheap and has wi-fi, color tv, in-room coffee. More for David Lynch fans than family types. Please stay here so it doesn't go under.. staying at chain hotels is lame and soul-sucking!! Support indie local motels!!!

This motel has the filthiest rooms I have ever seen. First the doors dont seal up the rooms have thin commercial carpet and they smell.
