Call them at: 719.336-9754.

The Holiday Motel at 404 N. Main Street in Lamar opened for business in 2006. The motel had operated under the name of El Donna before it was purchased and remodeled by Paul Gadash. Paul bought the vacant, rundown El Donna, and doing most of the work himself, has turned the Holiday Motel into a beautiful motel that draws the attention of anyone driving by. All of the rock work facing Main Street was done by Paul who, at the age of 76, would travel north of town to find the rocks needed and get to work rocking the complete outside of the motel.

After running the motel for a few years and now 84 years old, Paul passed the business down to his daughter Linda Rose. Linda, and her husband Troy, have been running the Motel since January of 2012. “We have met many wonderful people both traveling through and from Lamar since arriving. We are very excited to be part of Lamar and look forward to meeting as many of the Lamar folks as we can, and thank the ones that have stopped in and rented rooms for their visiting family and friends that come to visit.” You can bet when checking in that Linda and Troy will make sure their guests feel at home, telling them where the eating establishments are or what events are going on in town. We are always happy to hang up any fliers for upcoming events in our lobby to ensure the local events get as much advertising as possible.

The Holiday Motel offers twenty five rooms with different bedding configurations, singles, doubles and rooms with king-sized beds. All of our rooms feature refrigerators, micro waves and DIRECTV with flat screen TVs. Each room has its own heating/AC unit to ensure your comfort during your stay. To stay connected to the web we have free WI-FI. We will make every effort to ensure that everyone who stays with us has a pleasant experience. We have visitors that range from business people, construction workers and people just traveling through. We offer a large gravel parking lot east of the motel units that will accommodate semi-trucks and vehicles with trailers. We really enjoy the stories we hear from our customers, and when looking at our sign in book, you will see that we have had guest from all over the world.

We take great pride in the way we run our business and the way it looks. We want everyone who drives by and sees the Holiday Motel to think to themselves, “that would be a wonderful place to stay”. We want to offer the absolute best service possible and ensure that our rooms are the cleanest in town. We continually look at what we can do better and some of our best ideas come from our customers. When making changes or improvements, we take great pride in using our local businesses and contractors to do our work. We want to help make Lamar the best it can be and by keeping the work in town we feel that in the end it will help all of us.
