This is a nice little hotel if you're visiting the Covered Bridge area, the mgr. gave us a room close to internet router so I could do my reports. The rooms are small but nice and come with a Micro & Frig., the TV is old but had plenty cable channels

We had a fine experience staying at this hotel. I read the reviews before traveling, so had an idea of what to expect. We were in room 14, I think they only have 20. We were able to back up virtually to the door, so loading / unloading was easy. No stairs as all units are ground level. The room... More

Arrived around 1 AM. Was told they only had one room left. We were so tired and needed sleep that we took the room sight unseen. The room was definitely in need of a good cleaning and updating. Much to our surprise we had cold showers the next morning. The hot water fixture just spun and did not give any... More

First of all, our room was filled with BLACK MOLD. The walls were untouchable, there was smoke damage, even though these rooms are "non-smoking", we asked for a different room for obvious reasons; the manager told us they were all full. Well we had a friend ask if they had any rooms available, and magically there was one! So the... More

Room smelled, bathroom floor was dirty and I mean dirty. There was an ice cream container (from some previous guest) in the freezer. One light in main area, no desk lamp. Light switch on the wall didn't work. Walls were sooty and we assumed it was from the malfunctioning wall heater (see photo). Power strip next to microwave and fridge... More

We stayed here every year for our family reunion and have never had a problem. The staff was always very helpful and personable. This year was a nightmare. The room smelled disgusting and the bathroom was covered in black mold and we had to use tissue paper for toilet paper!! When we tried to talk to the owner he told... More

I stayed at motel Forrest and the owners were really helpful. When I asked for a heater they said "the heater will be on your way." They were really friendly they were polite they had manners and they always called me "ma'am."

I forgot how nice it was to just walk out your door and be at your car or out front to visit friends, no long hallways, no elevators, just like where we stayed when I was a kid. Rooms aren't huge, but very comfortable beds, extremely clean and wonderful owners. They are very friendly and accomodating. I booked rooms a... More
