This motel really needs to have some repairs and updates done to it. We stayed one night here and WOW! ..... needs some work! When we arrived we were given the key to the wrong room. When we got that straightened out, we entered our room to find quite a sight! The room was clean as it could be with... More

GloriasM, Manager at Gloria's Motel & Restaurant, responded to this review

We apologize for the poor experience that you've had. Gloria's has recently gone through several necessary repairs through out Oct- Dec '14, and thus I assure you those issues are no longer present. As for the TV service, our provider Bell hasn't been delivering on their promise of excellent reception and thus we are in the process of upgrading our... More

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
