We stayed here since it is close to the Avenue Of The Giants marathon. Pretty decent for the price and can't really say anything bad. You get what you pay for, staff could be a bit more friendly . There are places to eat quite nearby

This was the second time staying at this motel. We were given a room on the lower side and it was in better condition than the one by the office we stayed in previously. A+ on cleanliness. The shower head was too short. The woman who checked me out and refunded my deposit was very accomadating as well as friendly... More

I found bed bugs here and I stayed in room 22. I alerted the hotel and they're taking measures to eradicate them but I would check carefully until they have a chance to get the issues resolved. It's not an infestation at my home which is expensive to fix and painful.

This motel is dated, but it's reflected in the rate you pay. They accepted my dog without a pet fee because of his size. Check in was efficient. The room was clean and fresh. The bathroom needed a fresh coat of paint, but the amenities were there. The best thing for us was the off street location of the units... More

At $56 a night we expected one-night-basic, and that's what we got. The receptionist was very polite, friendly and helpful. The room was dated but clean. The walls are thin so you can hear your neighbour's TV and the plumbing resonates throughout whenever anyone flushes. I unplugged the fridge for a decent sleep. We had #37, you can hear the... More

This is a basic no frills motel that was reasonably priced. It had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. The flat screen TV with HBO was nice. The shower had hot water and the towels were a soft and fluffy. On the negative the carpets were stains and there was some peeling paint by window sill and the pillows... More

I called this motel for a rm. rate and of it was clean. This took 3 phone calls to a rude clerkwho hung up twice before anwering all of my questions.In spite of the rudeness we thought we would try. The room we were shown was awful! The carpet was matted,nomspecific color that gave the whole room a bad smell.... More

We took the last room as we did not have reservations any where else. The clerk said the only room left was one with 3 queen beds for $120. We took it since it was getting late. The room was like being in a dorm or prison. 3 queen beds, a TV on an oak cabinet, two bedside tables, microwave... More

We stayed one night and loved it! It is exactly what we were looking for on our road trip. It is not fancy but the room was clean and so was the bathroom/shower and the rates cannot be beat. Every other place around was twice the price and not any nicer. Staff was great! Oh, and the pool was clean... More
