First, it s/b noted that we stayed here 2 weeks ago for 2 days and had a nice time. That being said, this past weekend was very disappointing. On Day one, I noticed that that heater in the shower room did not work (it gets cold here). On Day two around 10pm I noticed that the internet connection was lost,... More

Found this motel browsing the Internet. It was located on our route north so I took the chance and booked two rooms for one night for the family on our Christmas vacation. Wish I could stay longer. Highly recommend it.

This is an older unit but extemely clean with fresh paint, floors and carpets in a spectacular setting. Totally serene and relaxing with lots of trees and fresh air. Furniture may be a little dated but beds are comfortable and rooms are large and once again very clean.

My second time here, my first was about 15 years ago and was every bit as enjoyable as this stay. Set back from the main road in the pines this cozy retreat is uber clean, cute and quiet. The rooms smell good and the grounds are immaculate. Great shower and quaint glass enclosed Florida room for the free breakfast. GREAT... More

My wife and I have stayed at this property many times. Never been disappointed with staff or accommodations. Rooms have all been nicely furnished and with very comfortable beds. In room coffee and tea is a plus. A continental breakfast is also served in the morning along with a 10% discount to local restaurants at check-in. Grounds are well kept,... More

The small town feel adds much charm here, and it is clear they care about offering a top notch experience. Our room was an end unit with a very nice bay window that enhanced our stay due to the extra light. The king bed is wondrously comfortable! Furnishings are nice overall. I think the high point is the courtyard with... More

My husband and I spent one night here recently. The "chain hotel" in town was booked so this was our only choice. We walked into the room to see a king size bed that was in the shape of a horse shoe. It sunk so terribly in the middle we knew we would not be able to sleep in it.... More
