My wife called to make the reservation, and unfortunately we wouldn't be getting there until about 2:00 in the morning. The lady said that was no problem, just ring the bell. Even though I woke her up, she was very courteous and nice, and got us to our room quick. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. She... More

Cute, clean, very well-maintained, roadside motel that is very convenient to the area state parks. Not a "5 star" hotel, but definitely a 5 star in its class. I have stayed in many hotels and am fairly picky, especially when it comes to cleanliness, and I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to friends and family.

Mr. Barron, thanks so much for taking the time to review our hotel. We do try hard to keep our hotel rooms spotlessly clean and updated. We are happy you enjoyed hiking some of the popular State Parks in the area including Elephant Rocks, Taum Sauk, and Johnson Shut-Ins. We appreciated your recommendation of our facility to others and hope... More

With not many options in the area for a place to stay we booked our overnight based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. It really is more of a motel than a hotel, but very charming.

What a charming hotel and staff. I was very pleasantly surprised at how well kept this little hotel is. The room was spotless and the bedding was new. The restaurant next door was very good and everyone was very welcoming.

This is a clean, basic motel, nothing fancy but no complaints at all about the hotel, room, service, etc. We booked a queen room that included one queen bed, table with two chairs, flat screen tv mounted on wall, chest with four drawers. The room also had a mini-fridge, microwave... More

We stayed here for three nights, while visiting natural attractions in the Arcadia Valley area, based largely on other reviews. We were not disappointed! It's the perfect, central location for visiting Elephant Rocks, Johnson Shut-Ins, Taum Sauk mountain, Castor River Shut-Ins(our favorite snorkeling and swimming hole, as it is much less "touristy"), and historic Civil War Ft. Davidson, which is... More

As a kid the family would almost always stay in a motor inn (Motel) and I hated it. Seedy scary places. As an adult we usually stay in a vacation rental but I have to say this is the best motel I have ever stayed. The rooms were large, we were in a suite that had an individual bedroom and... More
