I don't know what the other reviewers were looking for --- there ain't no Hilton up here in the mountains! People come up here to fish, ride horses, hike, ride ATV, etc.... I stayed at the Isabella Motel a few years ago when I was looking for a house up here just after I retired. Yes, it was "bare-bones", but... More

At first sight the motel doesn't impress however, the inviting pool is always open and very clean. Located by the pool is a very nice covered patio to eat. What impressed me the most were the rooms.

Only stay here if there's nowhere else available. It's more expensive than the standard motel - we paid $68 + tax, which was about $60 too much. Altho' there was a kitchen, the wood panelling, paintwork and carpet were really tatty, the bed rough to say the least, and the pillows about 2cm thick. The guy on reception was pleasant... More
