10.0 Wonderful
Cons:Not too expensive and so much fun! The lady at the front desk is great. There was a free beer, chili and live music evening.
7.7 Good
Pros:It has fun style and Is fairly close to town. Staff was very nice and suggested a fun hike!
Cons:Our room smelled a bit like wet dog for a few hours until we aired it out. You can hear everything that happens in the room next to you and there is considerable street noise from cars and trucks- some earplugs or "white noise" might be helpful- I resorted to an app that plays rain sounds so I could sleep.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:The manager was extremely helpful! Great place, awesome value!
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The location was good
Cons:Real loud. Our neighbors were up until 5 in the morning. I asked if we could move rooms and it was completely booked. The lady working there said they would call them and ask them to quiet down, but they never called them
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The hotel was clean and the staff was incredibly friendly. And we loved our room the whole design and said it was just awesome it was a cozy and a home away from home I will definitely be back
8.0 Very good
Pros:Dan, the mgr, very friendly and kindhearted. Interesting decor. Loved the lobby area which is very open and inviting. 3rd generation baker delivers an array of wares each morning. Just updated.
Cons:The name is actually Atomic Motel, which threw me off when first booked. Dan says it is a difficult process to get the name changed on all websites. No coffee maker in the room.
