Everything about the El Rancho Motel was what we hoped it would be. The staff and ownership was so so kind and helpful, very accommodating, and gave us great suggestions of how to spend our time. The green space/picnic table in the front was lovely for stargazing and talking late into the night while watching the feline entertainment play around. The room was comfortable and well appointed and every one of our needs was met.

The El Rancho motel was everything we hoped it would be! It was charming, the staff was SO kind, the cats were hilarious. We loved the front green space and area and spent a great late night watching stars and sitting on the picnic table hanging with the local feline entertainment. The room was comfortable and well appointed- the motel ownership was accommodating, helpful, and super kind. I have nothing but wonderful feelings about our time here and would happily stay again. This place was exactly what we hoped it would be when we booked.
