Good location, Ok stay
Location was great if you want to be closer to kirkwood and not in the middle of everything but still close to restaurants and a few stores. Single floor motel so don't have to hear people walking around above you. Room was bigger than I thought it would be. The room got a little too hot even though we tried to lower heat. Room could use a good thorough cleaning (my son found a used sock and a screw under the bed; shower needs to be scrubbed thoroughly, bathroom door needed a wipe down, carpets need a good cleaning). Furniture was a little beat up but it worked so that wasn't an issue. Man checking us in was nice. Place was fine for one night.

Poor 2.0
terrible room
hotel owner said they only have 3 rooms that have the single bed. if you reserve one you could end up with the handicapped room which is not like the normal rooms at all with really low showers and less tables than promised. Furniture also very old with chipped paint etc. pretty depressing overall. owner refuses to refund if we leave. Bait and switch really, reserve at your own risk!!!

Excellent low cost option!
Great place to stay if you’re trying to ski on the cheap. Great service, room was clean, and beds were comfortable. No fuss! Would book again!
