My wife and I took part in the lantern cavern tour with romance package at the motel. Our room had 2 double beds with a nice view of the surrounding countryside. A nice flower arrangement, fudge, and 2 splits of champagne were present at check in. Vase, glasses, and tray are yours to keep. Large bathroom. Very clean room. Comfortable... More

Affordable. Good deal of staying here and going into the cavern! Good price to split with friends. Staff is very friendly! Rooms are acceptably clean. Bathroom is huge. Great view outside of the room! Nothing fancy here but you have all your basic accommodation needs.

I called. SPECIFICALLY inquired on whether the tour is on a schedule. I specified I am coming from 2 1/2 hours away with two small kids. The lady was very nice and advised me that there are NO TOURS you come in as you go no need for advance purchase etc. I again asked if she is sure being that... More

I visited here approx 60 years ago. The perspective of size was a bit different as I was maybe 41/2 feet tall back then vs 6'2" now. I am pleased that my memories of that trip through the cave were enhanced by this visit. The motel was very clean, comfortable beds, great shower and bath. We were the 5/18-5/19. The... More

The room was very clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had double sinks in a separate area from the tub/shower and toilet.This made it very easy for morning routines. There are limited TV channels and could not connect to wifi. This is probably due to the remote location of Howes Caverns. The views were spectacular. There... More

I can't really review the hotel as it turns out we were unable to stay there. We reserved a King Jacuzzi room (it turns out it is the only one they have). We arrived and checked in and were given our key. The key would not open the door. The desk clerk came with his master key and he could... More
