I tried this place because everything else was very overpriced due to the Garth/Trisha concert. I'm glad I did. The room was very clean. AC worked well. Bed was super comfortable. It was a residential neighborhood, but i felt very safe and slept well. The only odd thing... If you are going to shower in the afternoon, you will have...

I had some problems with my first room and the desk clerk the first night (I stayed four nights). The next day the owner moved me to another...

Stayed here after reading great online reviews. However, discovered my gold necklace was stolen during the weekend. Told the front desk; they did nothing. Anyone who employs a thief does NOT deserve my business... or yours. Beware!

I found the Matador motel by asking a guy at a gas station. When I asked him if he knew where I could find a decent and inexpensive motel close by, He immediately answered, "Dude, go to the Matador Inn, I'd even send you there if you was lookin' for a nice hotel!" My first thought was this guy was...

It was a LOT nicer than I expected it to be, rooms, service and location (close to a lot of things we wanted to do). We stayed at Matador in march. First non-chain place I stayed at. I'd definitely come back.

“Try to get a room away from motel entrance.”

“If you choose to stay here, DO NOT LEAVE anything of value in your room. If you have asthma or reaction to heavy odors, you may not want to stay here. They use heavy amounts of deodorizer in the rooms. Had to leave the bathroom vent on all night to help dissipate the smell.”
