Fodor's Review

This motel with comfortable, simple rooms has all the modern amenities you'd expect at a typical mid-price chain hotel. For $11 more, you can get a room with a partial view of the canyon. Rooms have either two queen beds or one king. Some rooms have evaporative coolers (they're very effective) instead of air-conditioning.
