My husband had to stay here because he had gotten stranded on his way home to kcmo. Everything was fine except for the fact that in order to get to Albuquerque he needed to ride the bus. The bus station is just a pick up and drop off at the gas station. He needed a paper ticket and the office didn't have or didn't let him receive a fax.

Price not Reflecting Comfort

Pros: Clean, no frills, comfortable, and we'll worth beyond the advertised price
For the advertised price I was expecting a run down flea bag flop house, but at the price of $33 it was a wonderful pleasing comfortable night stay. Would definitely stay here again if ever in the area.
