    We came to geocache in the area. Stayed three nights. The motel was clean, quiet, and they cleaned our room daily. We like these one floor motels because there's nobody over your head and no kids running in the halls.

    We came into town for my Grandmothers 80th birthday and stayed at the Modern Motel. The rooms were clean with upgraded new beds. Everything that should work did and the price was great. Although we did not have a lot of interactions with the staff, what we did have at check in was very friendly and informative. I would recommend... More

    I have stayed here in the past and it was nice. However this time with the new owner it was more than nice. It was SPOTLESS. If you call for reservations you are greeted with a professional, helpful and friendly voice. She helped pick the right room and even suggested a better room when I explained we were a family...

    Decent experience for the money. Its not like this is some luxury joint, but the room was clean, the shower worked, the TV has lots of channels and you can park your bike at the door. Staff was friendly, price was right. If you are looking for an old-school, roadside motel, this is it.

    The people were very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean. The only issue I had was there were dogs barking all day and most of nthe night-they may have belonged to people living close by, I'm not sure. But overall I was happy.

    I really liked this place. Very pet friendly, which is important as I stayed 2 nights. Lots of room for walking the dogs. Rooms are clean. I would stay here again. Room I was in was a little tight, but it is an older building; I wasn't expecting a 5 star motel.

    Very comfortable and clean. Newly updated & pet friendly. It was very cost effecient & they gave me a discounted rate for extended stay. I would certainly stay there again if the need arose. The owner was very friendly & I loved my room!
