Quite simply put, it's the worst place I've ever stayed. Two different rooms stink of stale cigarettes, thin, worn blankets, lumpy, creaky beds, mold and mildew in the bathroom, tepid water. Couldn't wait to leave, never to return

You don't find many places like this anymore. Single room rate is $53 (with tax!), which gets you a spotlessly clean, simple room with a modern TV and wifi. Yes, the windmill outside is broken (I think), and some of the furnishings are worn and the carpet a bit stained, but at this price who's to complain? Even better, on... More

I don't usually write reviews, but I had to this time after seeing the recent review that wrongly states that this hotel is not clean. It is a simple place (after all, it is $50 a night) that may not have some of the added perks of a luxury hotel, but it is very clean, well run, and very homey.... More

This place is disgusting! The rooms (we had 3 rooms) were dirty and outdated. Hair on the walls in the bathroom, musty smells, broken window (with shards of glass still on the sill), and cobwebs in the shower. One bed had grass in it! Totally unclean. Rundown is one thing, filth is another. Will never go back and never recommend... More

This is a great place. The owner is the nicest man. This is a overlooked place. The room is CLEAN neat and cozy. I normally stay in greenfield and was pleasantly surprized by the hospitality. The owners take pride in the property. The bathroom is CLEAN,the beds are so comfortable like being home. If you overlook this place for a... More

I have visited before and I absolutely LOVE this place. Owned by a husband & wife team who also manage & work in the adjoining restaurant, open only for Breakfast. The beds are so comfortable, quilted tops and so much back support. Newer TV's since my last visit, shower with very good water pressure and hot! Safe & homey and... More

Pro's: not many besides price ($42 for a twin bed for one) and friendly owners, clean sheets & bathroom, "furnished". Con's: a fairly standard list for such a low cost roadside motel. Needs updating, one channel TV, loud AC, musty carpet smell, no food or ice. It's a bit run down. Tips: I would stay here again for <$50 a... More

This motel is nothing fancy but, it has a homey feel to it. It is a family run motel that offers a clean, quiet place to stay while in the area visiting family. We have stayed there a couple of times for a week's duration. We'll be back, so keep the light on for us.

I stayed here many times. Sure it is a simple place, but it did not cost me an arm and a leg and it was off the beaten path enough to not attract drunks and drug addicts. It was clean and comfortable with a beautiful big sky overhead while sitting out front and it's on a quiet secondary road. I... More

This motel has almost nothing to recommend it. It has all the things you'd expect in a poor motel - flat pillows, thin walls, teeny showers, no technology of any kind available, no food, not even an ice machine. It needs upgrading in the worst way, but it doesn't seem that the owners fix anything at all. My partner thought... More
