This is basically a 1950's style Motor Inn type of place. Pros: this hotel is not expensive for the area, is clean and conveniently located. The owners are cooperative and they keep beautiful, immaculate and healthy gardens. The window air conditioner worked adequately and we were comfortable on a very hot day. Cons: There is not enough shelf space, especially... More

I suppose if you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay and aren't going to spend too much time in it, then this place is passable. The room we stayed in was OK for sleeping although the AC did not work the first night. To the staff's credit, someone did come into the room when we were out to fix... More

If you stay in annex building the wifi signal will be so weak as to be useless. Yes the management knows about it but he didn't seem anxious to rectify it. Also the room we had was unbelievably dark. Bring an extra lamp.

My child was when up with bed bugs after our stay here. See photos. Owner called at 9:30 telling us we needed to get out because check out was at 10. Air conditioning didn't work. I ran out of hot water before I could finish shower. AVOID this place at all costs! I'd sleep in a tent before staying here... More

When I walked in there was a burned out candle on the desk which was odd. But when morning came it was obvious why. The place has mold they were covering up with the candle and Renuzit solid orchid scented air freshener I found under the bed table. There is no fan in the bathroom so where does the moisture...

This Hotel my not look the best from the outside, but never judge a book by its cover. The owner went out of his way to make me feel at home, the price was very fair. Room was always very clean and its close to every where I need to be.

Stayed at this motel in July 2012 for 2 nights with my 19-year old son. We were basically looking for an inexpensive but clean place to crash while doing some mountain biking in the area and visiting my daughter who has a summer job nearby. The place isn't much to look at, that's for certain. My wife would have been... More

We ended up not staying because after walking into the rooms, we noticed a good deal of wildlife. Bugs, flies, spiders are not things I prefer to sleep with.. Also, the shower heads are not really shower heads. One room had a tub but the other was a stall. I didn't even want to touch the bed to see if... More
