5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great stoping point for a road trip to from Las Vegas, NV to Texas. Loved the historic property renovated and restored. Great service from front desk clerk Joe and rooms were nicely done. This isn't really your traditional "motel" as it is nicely done. Only complaint is Internet wasn't working but strong cell service, shower water pressure not strong. Otherwise this is a hidden gem, would recommend!
