On a recent trip, I could not believe Gloria's was still there. We know nothing about the hotel, but the restaurant, wow! We had supper there and it was evident why it was still there - the food is just like Mom's cooking and the service so friendly, nothing has changede. It is also super clean. Make this a stop...

While not a luxury resort, Gloria's Motel was very clean and appeared to be adequately maintained. The staff was friendly, prices reasonable. The adjacent restaurant was decent, and overall made for a satisfactory stop for the night.

a clean and comfortable place that has budget price for travel on the off season. After a long days drive, I just checked in, washed up and fell asleep. No complains about anything in this friendly motel

On our Great Lakes round trip we picked this one because of the reviews here. There are a few things to add: Rooms are really small. This goes for both the room itself and the bathroom. With two large suitcases in the room there is not much space left to turn around. There's no decaf coffee in the restaurant. So... More

Standard motel truck stop that is run well. Clean bedrooms, towels and bathroom. Has basic cable. Not the most updated place and the beds were less than comfortable but when a place is clean and cheap i can look past that. Best of all was the staff, they will check you in at any time of the night and have... More

Owners were very friendly. Going up the stairs outside felt a little unsteady. The room is very clearly dated, but that didn't matter seeing how clean it was overall. Only about 3 clear tv stations, with a few more fuzzy ones. Air conditioning worked really well. Beds were too hard. A couple of cigarette burns in the blankets and on... More

We didn't stay in the motel, but we stopped in for supper at the restaurant after driving all day. Small place but the service was great, our orders came out pretty fast, food was good, no complaints!

The people are so nice I hate to say anything negative but I really try to give honest reviews. Our room was clean and fine. My problem was the noise and I'm not usually a light sleeper at all. The people upstairs kept dropping things through out the night, it sounded like it was coming through the ceiling, The lady... More

Despite the address on Tripadvisor, this place is actually closer to White River than Marathon. It's about 30 minutes west of White River, and 45 minutes east of Marathon. The room was a little musty, but clean. It also had a screen door, which is very useful during mosquito season. The room had a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot, as... More

Never stayed at the hotel but have eaten at their restaurant a number of times. Great staff who are always chatty and friendly. Large menu and they've always got an excellent dinner special and tasty desserts. It's a small place with just a couple booths and tables. The booths are a bit of a tight squeeze, if that's a problem... More
