A series of improvements have graced the Midway Motel in Caliente ever since new owner Cliff Jensen took over the reins.

The cottage-style buildings constructed in the 1920’s and 30’s are receiving fresh paint, new furniture, wireless internet, and other improvements.  That, along with highly competitive rates, has made the motel a good option for the many who travel through Caliente each day.

Jensen, who was an employee of the motel until he purchased the 10-unit complex last October, said he has customers from all over the United States, as well as overseas.

Wherever they’re from, Jensen and his staff work to make them feel at home.

“It’s a mom and pop kind of motel,” he said.

In fact, as Jensen was being interviewed for this article, a customer came in with a question and then proceeded to invite Jensen to join the customer’s group for dinner.

Jensen plans to continue making improvements and creating a comfortable, cozy environment for travelers to rest their weary heads.

Midway Motel is located at 251 North Spring Street in Caliente, Nev. and can be reached at (775) 726-3199.
