The few positive reviews gave me hope that this place might be acceptable. It wasn't. We felt like we had no other choice since it is the only motel in town. Obviously this is what keeps them marginally in business, what a shame. The place is worse than a dump. We are in town for a week but after one... More

I have worked in the travel industry for 27 years. I was very disappointed in the state of this property during my recent stay. The condition is a bad reflection on a very nice, growing community. I grew up in this area and returned to visit family for Christmas. I chose this property mainly because pets are accepted. Although the... More

We spent $114 on a room that, at most, should have been $59. All the furniture and bedding is tired. Very disappointed having read some of the reviews. Our experience was very much like Alicia S.- only the lamps worked. If I had it to do again-I would definitely drive to Salina!!!!

We had two rooms for the weekend. It's not the worst place we've stayed but it could use some cleaning and updating. The microwave was unplugged so when I plugged it in to use it it didn't work. The office chair had a wheel missing so was a challenge to sit in. The children did enjoy it. The floor lamp... More

My family, now just my husband and myself, has been staying at the motel for years. His family has lived and had property in the Ellsworth area for over 100 years, so we visit regularly. We are amazed at how well the property has been maintained over the years. The rooms are large and clean and everything we need is... More

Something must have changed here since prior reviews. Manager (?) Was friendly and professional. Both of our rooms were very nice, clean and well maintained. The pool and spa area is great. Fridge and microwave in the room. WIFI even in the room on the end. Breakfast was juice, coffee, cereal, oatmeal, toast, jam and the obligatory sweet roll. Manager's... More

Our family had a large reunion and many of us stayed there, some were in the local area and the rest of us out of state. Bill was very accommodating and his wife as well. We stayed in the honeymoon suite as we had a daughter and grand-baby with us. The room was clean and had a jacuzzi suite, and... More
