Treasure from the past!
This is a charming and very clean vintage motel. It is just like stepping back in time to the 1960’s. We enjoyed the experience. Staff was very friendly and even though the room was small it met our needs perfectly. Being able to park right at our door was great for loading and unloading and the price was definitely right especially for being pet friendly! If you want big, modern and luxurious this isn’t for you, but for a clean quiet night’s sleep it was worth a few miles out of our way for the bargain price and fun throwback adventure! We will be back!

Needed a warm bed for the night and this fit the bill. It is an older property, but it is well maintained, clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Comfortable, convenient and a good value
My husband & I are retired and travel a lot so we look for comfort, convenience and a good value in our hotel stays. This trip, we are driving along Route 66. Check in was efficient & very friendly. Our room was clean & well maintained. The bed was comfortable. There was adequate counter & nightstand space. Electrical outlets were not abundant especially in the bathroom for a hair dryer. There were few outlets in the room as well to recharge cell phones & other electronics. Pricing was very reasonable, however, and the area had several restaurants within a reasonable distance. Overall, our stay was comfortable and a good value. Having it located right on Route 66 was a real plus. We'd stay here again if ever in the area.
