Wonderful retro decorations at the Circle R motel. The furnishings were lovely and a lot of fun. Clean and the owner is friendly; grab and go breakfast in the office. We enjoyed our stay and it's on a main road.

Everything was fine except the bathroom. The cleaning was not satisfactory and the shower could use a new liner.

1/5 Terrible

Business traveler, Traveled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service
We showed up for our reservation a little after 9 to check in and the front office was closed and no one was around. So unfortunately we weren't able to check in at all and had to book a completely different hotel which was ridiculous. Our confirmation and itinerary said that the hotel check in times were from 4-9:30 but just a little after 9 no one was there. I tried calling the next day to see if I could get a refund for the inconvenience and was greeted very rudely by a lady who said it was our fault for missing the check-in time and said that she stayed late even for stragglers and that she would not give us a refund under any circumstances. She said she even sent us a reminder text of what time their office closed which wasn't sent until 9:35 that night! Which completely defeats the purpose of a reminder text seeing as how it was sent after they closed. Very unprofessional and I would never recommend staying here.
