We had reservations to stay three nights at this motel and were so satisfied that we stayed a fourth night when we decided we wanted to spend more time at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument! The proprietor was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, quite spacious, with comfortable king-size bed, and the price was RIGHT. We would have...

Was exactly as I expected for a place in the desert. It reminded me of all the old time motels I visited in the late 60s and early 70s and told my wife that was what I expected before I got there. A blast from the past if you want to be a wannabe desert rat but if you are...

Not too bad but it hasn't improved since my last visit. The manager was a bit dour when I checked in and there was a dead cockroach in the bathroom. The Bamboo Village has closed down but Marcela's is a good alternative. The main attraction of course is Organ Pipe National Monument which features saguaros as well as organ pipes.

My family and I stayed at the Marine Motel for one night. The room was okay. The bathroom and beds could be a little cleaner, we had to ask for new bedsheets because there were hairs on it. The AC was very loud and the TV was a little outdated. The motel does not have a breakfast buffet. In the...

We were overcharged at check-in. The water was luke warm at best. No blankets on the bed- just a sheet and the bed spread. The rooms are very worn. There was a dead mouse in the pool. Don't waste your money!

Was really pleased with our night here. Motel is set back from road with a nice pool and spdesert garden area. Room was spacious . Bed comfortable and linen perfectly acceptable. Little area off contained two sinks, microwave and fridge and that led to small bathroom. Retro decor, but original! Good star gazing at night. Supermarket across the road. Table...

The was clean, and that is it. The water was lukewarm at best, water pressure was nonexistent, pillows were paper thin, bed was super soft, not in good way. Luckily the weather was moderate, the AC unit could not cool the room and the electric heater worked for about 5 seconds. The tile in the bathroom was falling off the...

Some kind of Scratching sound all night; when I got up the trash was all over the floor! And some bathroom cabinetry had been bitten by some unknown rodent, white bits of plywood on the floor, so I am assuming a mouse. The electrical plug in the bathroom was missing most of the plug cover and so I was scared...

Looking for a place to stay as it was getting dark and looking like I was running out of town. Stayed here in a dumpy little room with questionable cleanliness. It was one of the only times I brought my sleeping bag into the room and slept in it. Drafty room. Can't comment on the decor because there wasn't any....

It is unfortunate to see some of the negative reviews and racist comments about this motel. We had a very pleasant experience. In fact, the manager also helped us arrange an extra portable bed in our room. The bathrooms were clean, bed sheets were organized and clean. Our flat screen TV had no issues. Manager was very cooperative. I will...
