This was a value find. The room was somewhat wild - wood paneling everywhere, including the bathroom. However, the amenities, great service, and price more than made up for those limitations. Perfect stay along our trip!

This was a nice, clean and comfortable motel. Our room was small with 2 double beds in it. There is no A/C but there is a fan. It drowns out most if the noise from the highway down the valley. Have to have the windows open. Would have been hot and uncomfortable if the temps would have been any higher.... More

We recently stayed here for 1 night while on our way to PEI. This is a small motel but not small on the value. We had a little trouble finding it but we were pleasantly surprised with our room. It was very clean and comfortable. A microwave and fridge were provided in the room for our convenience. Cable TV and... More

This is a small motel located on a cliff above the highway. It was a little hard to find, but worth it. Very clean and bed was comfortable, Staff was friendly and helpful. No facilities other than fridge and microwave. Seemed to be a lot of traffic on the street, but did not cause any problems, Would stay here again... More

terrific little place to stay. i think there are only 10 rooms here at the most. the staff seems very friendly and the rooms are very clean. i wish i could say there is a beautiful view here, but the fog and rain seem to hide it - maybe tomorrow, hopefully.

This motel is small and close to the road. It's neat, clean and a good place to spend the night. There is no breakfast and coffee is on in the little vestibule where you check in. But, it's in a regular family style coffee pot and isn't available until 6:30, when they're open for check out. People who checked us... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night as we had an early morning meeting about 1/2 hour away. The bed was comfortable and the room was neat and clean. The person who checked us in was friendly and upgraded our room to a queen from the double I had previously booked. No problems so would probably stay again... More

Great prices, great customer service, the owner was very talkative and nice, the room was very big and very clean! We had a kitchen and made very good use of it. But they could use a upgrade on pillows and bath towels as well as be a bit more realistic about the fact that a small soap can be enough... More

As other reviewers have noted, the first impression is depressing. But we got a terrific, clean, spacious room at a great rate. The hotel staff were friendly and very understanding as my phone kept breaking up while I tried to make a reservation. Excellent place to stop for the night.
