Headwaters is definitely not the Taj Ma Hall...... But it is a clean, outdated motel with a comfortable country atmosphere and a friendly staff!!! We stayed a long weekend and snowmobiled right from the parking lot to the trails, plenty of room to park the truck and trailer too..... There was an issue with the hot water and the owner/manager...

This would be a nice place but... Very out dated and NOT a drop of hot water, if there was an opening at another place I would have left . We didn't shower for 2 days , the only thing we could do is do sponge baths in the sink ... After a long day of riding your sled all... More

We stopped here in a rain storm. The empty lot should've been a clue. Room was stale and smelly, beds were saggy and there was torn holes in the carpeting and dead earwigs next to the bath tub. If the weather want so awful we would have motorcycles to somewhere else. Definitely not worth the $75 we paid.

If there had been hot water in the morning, I would have given this a 2 star. The place was booked full (two weddings in town I guess) and we showered late, so not hot water - which the maid told us was common. Other than that, the bed was hard, the pillows thin (luckily we bring our own), the... More

After all the bad reports, one would think this place would be closed down...but because Boonville hasn't any good overnight facilities, it is still able to attract customers. Most are like me, though...very dissatisfied with the accomodations. I've never stayed at a hotel that withholds TV remotes and alarm clocks for your rooms until you check in...and then you have...

Beds are very uncomfortable. There is NO hot water at all, toilets don't flush and had to ask for toilet paper, and no shampoo for the shower. Would not have stayed but it was the only room available in the area. Never again.

This is an old motel that caters to snowmobilers and itenerant utility workers. The rooms are as clean as they can be, considering. The carpet was totally threadbare, the wallpaper was peeling, there was a faint cigarette smell. But the bathroom was clean, the shower was powerful, the TV worked and had lots of cable channels, the bed was clean... More

I was traveling through Boonville to Albany one night last weekend and got caught in a really bad snow storm. There were cars off the road everywhere and I felt very uncomfortable driving. My boyfriend and I decided to find a place for the night. The only problem was that we had our Pitbul with us. The first place we... More

Had to stay due to a snow storm, walked in and the room was like the bates motel . Blood stained box springs dirty carpets stained bathrooms. Absolutely disgusting - afraid to even close my eyes. Don't stay here.
