The hotel was very run down, dated and dirty. The carpet is stained and threadbare in places and the bathroom had hair on the floor. It seems that we may have had one of the cleaner rooms. Would never stay here again no matter how desperate.

The food was really delicious.The owner was attentive, professional and observant, we really enjoyed talking to him and learning more about his wonderful restaurant. Our server was Kristan and she was delightful to talk to and really... More

Bugs in bed. Management said all the owners cared about was making money. Would not offer any refund although we had not even taken our luggage in the room. Stay away. Carpet was filthy. Leaves all in the room.

Honestly, I was nervous to even stop at this place due to the recent reviews. With all the local places being $175-250 a night, $89 was good for us. The office clerk was a really nice man. He gave us several room keys to go check out the room before we decided which room we'd go with. Cheap and nice... More

A tourist trap, charging way too much! the motel needs maintenance badly, old and worn out furniture. A brown colored water was coming out of the shower, only 1 bulb was working out of the 3 bulb vanity light in the bathroom. The building itself is dirty from the outside as well as the inside. The carpet looks like it... More

Yes, I was desperate. However, I still expected a decent stay. I was charged $119, plus tax which ended up being $149!! I was put in one room and I turned on the air, which blew hot air. The desk manager moved me to another room and the air was fine. However, he said the room next door complained of... More

First off Bernard, the keeper, was awesome. Called to make sure we were still coming and let us check in early. He's very friendly with a great personality. The hotel is old but we were there only to sleep. Also the hotel is pet friendly which is a plus. The hotel is in a great location and is quiet. We... More

Really nice manager, very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and clean (except for carpet) with comfortable bed but did hear from others in our group who did not have a good recommendation, smaller room and not so clean, stained towels, sheets etc. The hotel is old and carpet really needs replacing. Pricey for what it is, but for... More
