The wi-fi did not work, the breakfast was a tupperware container of cereal and a gallon of milk in the refrigerator, the floor was tile instead of carpet, several electrical outlets didn't work.....not a place I would ever consider booking again.

Left stranded in spite of booked & confirmed room

Pros: Never even got our room--had to search for another place in the middle of the night.
Cons: Honesty.
Fraud deal, never got our room, and manager claimed later that we didn't show up. Here's our experience: Booked room ahead, then called manager at 9pm to confirm were running a little late. He said "no problem". Arrived at 11:20pm, about as indicated but 40 minutes before the check-in deadline. Office was dark, manager wouldn't answer the office door, the office phone, or knocks on his residence door. Travelocity couldn't reach him by phone either. Gave up after 50 minutes of failed attempts (now past midnight) and had to find a room for our family in an isolated town on a packed summer weekend. Drove around and found a last open room at a small side street motel and learned that they had rescued two other Mountain View customers that night. Learned "yeah, that guy double-books." Confronted the Mountain View manager the next morning and got evasive responses that he "must have been dog tired" and that "it's ok, we wouldn't be charged since we didn't check in." After we left he claimed to Travelocity that we were no-shows and he denied our refund. His management plan: Confirm initial booking but then rent room to others, close the office early and hide, get double pay for a single room, and leave the first family with no place to sleep. Rethink this place. (Worth noting that Travelocity ultimately refunded me following my detailed documentation, a follow-up call, and a reportedly angry response from the manager when they called him back.)

At Check-In

Pros: The room was spacious and clean
Cons: Making sure older people are put on the first floor and that they rebuild their stairs.
No one knew how to check me in properly...a young boy did it as best he could...saying I'd likely have to pay with my credit card again when I handed him a receipt that showed I paid online. The weren't sure what room to give us and my 78 year old husband had to climb stairs that were tilted at an angle downward, causing much concern about his falling. The last, top step was the worst and even loose.

Never Again

Pros: convenience
Cons: It's in the review
Location: location is excellent and fishing is nearby
During my stay the office was occupied only once. The room had no towels,and the TV didn't work. I found Housekeeping and they fixed both. Internet seldom worked, I logged on to the motel next door. They had a scheduled power outage so they could upgrade their system on my second day and the did not make me aware of it. This was a fishing trip and I had fish to freeze. It was around 100 degrees and I had no freezer or air conditioning. There was no sugar for the morning coffee.I had one chair in in room that was a low living room chair, I felt like a toddler at the big peoples table when using the desk or the the table. The only electrical outlet available was at the table , in the corner with three sides walled in so you can't see the TV from that location. They wrote the WIFI password on a piece of scratch paper, On the back of that piece of it contained the personal information of someone that had booked there a couple of days ago. I have his name, address, phone number and email address.Where will my information go? He's lucky because I'll destroy his.I would really like my money back, this trip was distressful. My rating on staff is based solely on housekeeping, one was great, a Latina lady that had her children with her, the others were soso,

Talk about quick and simple!

Pros: Simple, unpretentious comfort.
Cons: One front window drape needed another pin to achieve privacy inside
Location: Holy Smoke Texas Style BBQ restaurant in town: sampler plate was spectacular, big enough to share!
Checkin took about a minute and everything was in place in our room. Office wasn't even open the next morning -- drop your key in the box. Breakfast was totally unattended and simple. Coffee, dry cereal, muffins, orange juice and ice all self serve in a little building next to the pool. Not modern architecture but recently painted and well maintained. Great place for a comfortable overnight respite from desert travel.

Average to good motel for the price.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, allows dogs
Nice because they allow dogs, but there is an additional charge for that. TV was not working but the staff came over and replaced the batteries in the remote, within minutes. One thing I didn't like is the heater. Although I think this is pretty standard for a hotel like this, you are either really hot and have to turn it off until it gets cold; then get up and turn it on. No thermostat. Pretty loud also. So, the choices are: Leaving the heat blowing on low or high all night; or turn it on and off. Wifi connection not great, in fact, I gave up because it kept throwing me off.

Safe, clean, friendly. Good price. No frills.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: outdoor steps need repair
This is a nice place in reasonable shape. It was clean, which is most important. Definitely a good value for the low price. The man at the front desk was friendly.
