Affordable and clean

Pros: Clean
Cons: Highway noise was a little bothersome.
Location: We were headed to the fossil cliffs and this was a good starting point.
Nice clean hotel in proximity to where we were headed.

The rooms were clean & well maintained. The pool & hot tub were disappointing. The pool was ridiculously shallow & the hot tub wasn't hot. The slide, however, was wickedly fast & fun.
