Great experience staying at West Winds. The owners are lovely and do a wonderful job maintaining the property which slopes down to the big beautiful river. There is a nightly "campfire" at the fire pit which makes for relaxing socializing. The motel rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable. My only complaints would be the thin towels and the...

We have stayed here a couple of times over the last five years. The rooms and cabins are clean and comfortable. The river view is great and the nightly fires in the fire pit are wonderful. We have always enjoyed our stay.

My best friends and I (two senior ladies) along with my dog recently stayed three nights in one of the motel units. I couldn't have been more pleased. The facility is elderly but has been very nicely updated. The rooms were very clean and comfortable although not large. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. I especially loved that they...

Although it was basic, the place was nice and clean and the owners were really friendly and helpful. I would go back there again but instead of a motel room, I would rent a cabin. . . . . . . . . . . .

We celebrated our 48th anniversary at West Winds, starting with flowers in our room when we checked in. A very clean and cozy motel room, great night time bonfires, nice pool area, and my husband caught some fish off the dock. VERY friendly staff. We sure hope to get back to West Winds again.

We booked a room for one night and stayed another after the first night. The rates are so very resonable. The grounds are right on the river and very well maintained. A great spot in Clayton. You can watch the few ships that travel the river each day from the dock. Harvey, Gordie and Sherry are super friendly, accommodating and... More

This is a great place. Very clean and very well maintained. We stayed in a cottage. You can walk down to river. There is even a small marina. Nice pool. Campfires in the evening. Owner is really sweet, and her son is an astronaut.

Great Amenities!! We booked a few rooms for a friend’s wedding in the area and decided to have people meet at the hotel for a cook out. The amenities are great; there were two gas grills, fire pit, and a screened gazebo. The manger brought us wood for the fire pit and started it for us. There is also a... More
