Very rustic, comfy and clean.
our bathroom was a little shabby and old looking -- almost not quite clean. There was no soap and no shampoo.
It was extremely clean but didn't have a oder of cleaning fluid like most motels. In fact there wasn't any odor at all. It was very quiet and I slept good.
Not a thing.
Looks bad from the outside but the rooms are nice and the bed is soft. I would stay again.
Location was fine....bed was firm
Could not connect WIFI until 9 AM. No one was available until 9:00 in the morning to address the issue. They did not seem very helpful on a whole.
Size of room.
This hotel does not deserve a pleasant rating based on the room I had. It is more of a fair rating. Cleanliness was questionable. Towels were a dingy white. Trains passing in the night. Many better options in Gallup.
Had a problem with no frigerator/microwave but got it resolved.
Very nice and clean. Spacious room close to restaurants and shopping
For the price it was a great find
clean, nicet, room, good location, large parking lot. will stay there again.
Only that it had 4 beds that we needed...
When we checked in the price changed by $20 by the owner and he make up the rules as he pleases. Housekeeping only made 2 of our 4 beds. The towels and wash cloth's were so old, dirty and gross. The dust was so thick in the place. All the furniture was so old and used and the rooms had a bad odor. Its a little run down roach motel run by a couple from India, we will never stay at that gross place again. We had no choice but to stay their we paid cash and for 2 nights right away when we checked in ($200.00) there was no way the owner was gonna refund any of our money back and it was also graduation weekend not other rooms. We were there for a funeral of a family member. What a shame...
Room seemed clean, except for dust.
Remote for tv and cooler was dirty.
Price of room was good
The train passing by kept me awake most of the night
The bed was super comfortable!
I got in after midnight and the front desk was able to check me in without delay.
There were at least 30 cigarette butts all over the ground at the room door.
Convenient location, good value for the money!
Staff was very friendly. This is not a luxury hotel but the room was clean and I would definitely stay here again while traveling.
There was absolutely nothing to like at this motel.
The rooms were filthy, smoky, the linens were not clean. This was absolutely the worst motel I have ever stayed in. Do not stay here.
Room really spacious and clean but hygiene in bathroom disappointing.
Bathrooms in dire need of renovation .
The room was extremely clean.
The heater was off when we arrived and the room was bitter cold (41 degrees F). It took over one hour before the temperature was warm enough to take our coats off. We will not stay there again.
Good location and the bathroom was large. Beds were fairly comfortable. Overall a good value.
Decore was outdated but as expected for the price. Wish the door automatically locked.
Good value for money. Direct in downtown Gallup.
Room was very cold. The tiles in bathroom were freezing cold.
Staff was friendly
TV was as old as me Linens were like sandpaper
clean & comfortable for the price
no laundry facilities
non molto pulito, necessita di essere rinnovato
