I must say that the package "Culinary Delight" was just that...a DELIGHT! the location was simply breathtaking, and the room, though not "fancy" was super clean and comfortable! there was a nice "welcome" tray of wine, fudge and flowers that were displayed nicely. We would have loved the jacuzzi room, but we waited to long to book. Love the fact... More

We stayed one night as part of a package that included the adventure park and cave tour. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. We were busy all day and just came back to the room to sleep so it was perfect. Not really anything nearby that interested us for dinner was the only downside.

Folks, this is a MOTEL. Motels have never been known for their state of the art anything. They're not known for their fancy soaps, linen or world class room service. They've been known for a bed for a weary traveler to hang their hat for the night. And that's exactly what we did. The kids (who've only stayed in HOTELS... More

You aren't getting much with this place so don't expect it. It's convenient for the night time tours at the caves though and we got a room as part of a package deal. It was quiet and the view from the front window of the room was fantastic. Which was good, because there was no television (no reception and the... More

This place was so nice. My teenage Daughter and son loved the ropes course, zip line and H2O ball. It's best to wear bathing suit for the ball because you get soaked. The lawn is beautiful and the kids had fun at night playing ball together. The gem mining great for everyone but particularly for little ones. The hotel on... More

But not much else. A basic accommodation for an overnight stay. The staff was nice, but the ice machine was not working. Lovely view from our front door. Convenient for people doing activities at Hoses Cavern, but still a little overpriced for what we got.

Flies and bugs, old gross bedspreads, loud rattling AC, uncomfortable beds, old carpet, semi cool refrigerator, an old box TV set that provides fuzzy channels only and a smell sort of like stale mixed with moth balls when you first enter room. Bathroom is updated and nice and you can't beat the view from the window.

We should not have expected much from a small Motel, but we were looking for a place to 1/2 our trip to Niagara Falls. Beds were horrible, air conditioning was terrible, the room smelled like a dentist's office (or worse, actually), there was a hive of bees under the end room right next to ours and EVERYTHING closes on the...

Stayed late July 2014 and will be staying again this weekend. We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the rooms. It is a motel, so don't come expecting 5* accomodations, but it was nice enough that we will be going back again this year and staying while we go to the Annual Sunshine Fair. Convenient location to the fairgrounds... More

Pretty simple folks...if you like to be pampered and expect the best of everything when you travel than this is not the place for you, BUT if you're there because you want a good night's sleep in a amazingly clean room, than this is perfect. They have a large bathroom, great A/C and fluffy towels. The beds are firm (I... More
