My wife and I stayed in this motel in October 2016 while on vacation with extended family. When booking the motel, we were sold on the "lodge" charm. Each room is devoted to a particular animal: in our case: horses. The room was charmingly decorated with "horse" throws, curtains, bedspreads, bathroom wall coverings, and wood framing (aka: "Stable" vibe). In...

Stayed here for one quick night going from Denver to Durango with my wife. Being September, there appeared to be all out of state trucks in the lot with Remington and Winchester bumper stickers. The room had a number of flies congregating on the counter (kitchenette, to our surprise), and what looked to be dog hair on the blanket that...

Cute motel near Great Sand Dunes National Park and Monument. Each room is themed to an animal that is found or hunted nearby. We had the Big horned sheep room. It had a kitchen attached. Owner suggested several nearby restaurants and we went to a good steak/Mexican place. Very good.

We stayed in the "white tail deer" room and laughed at how many deer images there were in the room. So, the 'decor by Cabelas' was a bit over done. The room was clean, quite and a good price. What really made the place is the owner, what a great guy to talk to. We talked hiking, bird watching and...

If you like a rustic looking, clean motel than this is the place for you. The guy working the desk was very nice. The room was clean as was the bathroom. There is a small fridge and microwave as well. The only recommendation is more outlets in the room (unfortunately we have alot of electronics that need charging )

this was a vacation stay, so we really liked it when we found 2 comfortable chairs in our room. (i believe all motel rooms should have at least 2 chairs in each room. who wants to go to bed to watch t.v?) this room, like all of the other motel rooms we visited on our trip needs a fly swatter!...

We paid for this room in advance via internet and left shortly after arrival. It didn't feel safe to stay there as two women with small children. And it smelled dank and musty. If you're not concerned with safety or cleanliness then I suppose this would be fine for you.

You will be very content here. This is local business.. No frills. But good clean rooms and a great price.. There a no phones but it is completely comfortable and always clean. They also allow pets..it is located across from a great Dairy Queen and there is a great Chinese Restaurant only a block away.

The owner is super nice. The rooms are interesting. In addition to our king size bed there was a nice recliner squeezed in the room which came in handy for the evening. The room was very dark and not an easy way to let some light in. There was a nice small kitchen area connected to the room, but you...

I read all the reviews prior to staying here. First they have tried to make the place cozy and cute. It is clean and we did not have any bad smells. The beds are horrible. They are hard and you really roll to the middle. It was painful for me. It's noisy from road traffic and others coming and going....

“You have a good array of choices. Suites and partial suites. It's actually a place you could safely recommend to your fussy mother-in-law. Older structure with radiator heating that works exceptionally well....also wall unit a/cs...New carpeting. Spotless bathrooms.”
