    so-so

    Group of 6 travelers total, 3 rooms. We arrived at 3pm and the rooms were not ready for check-in. Came back an hour later and we were given a room that had not been cleaned yet. AC in all 3 rooms was not working, they did provide fans next to the bed, but still HOT. There was a cigarette burn in the bathtub. Definitely not what the pictures showed. But fine for one night. Breakfast at the attached restaurant was $5 w/our stay and pretty good.

    Disappointing

    The air conditioning didn’t work, during above 100 degree days. Overall the property was dirty and run down.

    Not a 3.5 star rating

    I don’t know why Dude Rancher has gotten such high marks because I don’t think it deserves them. The photos shown might be for the rooms remodeled when it was on Hotel Impossible but ours wasn’t like it. What needs fixing: not enough electrical plugs and we had to charge our phones in bathroom; a/c didn’t work and we were given a fan; parking lot needs swept along with ratty rugs; no coffee in lobby first day and cold the second (at least we had it); no breakfast which front desk said was they had staffing issues (should have just told us at check in); no receipt cause Expedia emails it to us(!). Be aware that the motel is in the downtown area so there may be homeless people ;1 was sitting in shade on property). It is a historic inn built in ‘50’s. I just wish the owners would remodel it and make the experience more pleasant for the guests.

    Nightmare Factory

    It was a dirty hell hole. I beg people to not stay there for their own health and safety. We were thinking about staying there due to Hotel Impossible. Wow,. I have no words to say how bad it was.

    Upon check in we were told about the great $5 breakfast(didn’t exist-restaurant was shut down) The property has a charming Old West feel but needs renovating. Rooms were ok-beds comfortable. Needs a mirror so you can get ready while someone else is showering

    Warm room

    AC was not cooling off the room. Asked front desk for fan. They said nothing left but knocked on our door that they found one. That’s good service! The restaurant was not open. Not sure if due to holiday (4th of July) but was told it will be open at 7AM upon checking in.

    small room, no ventilation in bathroom

    The room is small. There was no toilet paper in the bathroom so we had to go and get some so the hubby wouldn't be stranded. The room smelled very musty and the floor was actually wet, which was not helpful with the musty smell. The ac was running but you can't adjust the temp. Needless to say with the mustiness of the room, it was also humid. There is no ventilation in the bathroom so it can be really miserable. We did not tell the front desk about the ac. We were already in the room. Our sons room was next door to ours and his room was MUCH cooler than ours-yet still stuffy.
