4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

This is bare bones but very clean, nicely furnished, comfortable, quiet, very friendly and reasonably priced family owned motel. Everything worked well and the property was very well maintained.The very limited breakfast was the only complaint we have. They have a special rate for Route 66 travelers and along with the senior discount made it very reasonably priced.

At the recommendation of a roadside attraction host on old 66, we stopped here in Carthage for a night on our Rt66 adventure. This is a classic motel (we like in-front parking to keep an eye on our car and for convenience) right on Rt66 but it's just outside of town in a lovely quiet spot by a lake. You... More

While it is a little but out of the centre of Carthage I would still recommend this place! It is on old Route66, next to a lake in a beautiful setting. The owners are friendly, the rooms are nice and clean and the prices fine. What more Could you want?

Can only agree with other reviewers, pointed here by Gary from Gay Parita, we had a wonderful unplanned stay here at the lake. Friendly, very helpful proprietors. The pool in the back was a treat for whole family after a long day on the road, before we went out to the Drive-in! A bonus is the laundrette. Also get coffee... More

While traveling Rt 66 we were also referred to this motel by Gary at the historic Sinclair station near Halltown. He recommended this place and even drew us a map to get there. We were planning on staying at the Boots motel but decided to stay here instead. We were not disappointed with our decision, the proprietors were polite and... More
