Our toilet was leaking. Beds are very hard. Hard on the back. It was clean. Had a fridge, coffee pot, and a hair dryer. Don't think we will stay here again. The hostess said she gave us a 10% discount, but she charged us the full online price of $70. So where is the 10% off? It's just not as... More

The rooms were very large with some having a small couch in them. The Internet was a little iffy at times but due to the remoteness of the town I am sure it has more to do with the provider than the motel. The linens were clean as were the floors and bath. I would recommend this to anyone needing... More

On a recent road trip the roads began to get icy so my wife and I stopped at the Scenic Rivers. The owners were very friendly and the lobby was spotless. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It was the off-season but the pool was open, very clean, and warm. Nice people, great place to stay.

Yes, it's not the Ritz. It IS a Clean, Comfortable, Well Maintained, Affordable Room for the weary traveler. I've stayed in many Motor Hotels in the past year, and none have come up to this standard of just plain done right. I've stayed here before on an extended stay while house hunting. I'm here on Family Business now, and when... More

I had promised my 11-year-old niece a girl's weekend, so needed a place that was both kid friendly and would allow me to keep my dog. The owners did not charge me extra for my niece and were welcoming of my dog. The room was clean and comfortable and the pool was spotless and open until 11:) I could easily... More

Seven family members reserved rooms to be side by side. When the family arrived on Saturday night, the parking lot was empty, and they said there were no rooms close together. The only rooms available were one on the back side, one upstairs and two by the pool. One of our party required a handi-capped room and non was availabile;... More

Our room was spotless. Basic, but very clean. Wireless worked fine. The other room for the rest of the family was dusty, but clean. The toilet workings weren't in good order in the second room, but it wasn't reported during the stay. Breakfast is the most basic continental. Prepackaged mini-muffins and rolls, instant oatmeal, dry cereal and toast.

The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were very accessible and clean. The pool and surrounding area were wonderful. If I could change one thing it would be to add some kind of eggs, possibly hard boiled to the breakfast as my husband is diabetic and needs protein instead of carbs. Please note there are numerous motels that... More
