We were turned off upon entering the office, which is part of the owner's home. You are hit immediately with the smell of strong stale cigarette smoke. Our room was on the end of the motel structure, and thus we had the stairs to the upper level next to us. The room, although relatively clean, was an absolute time warp.... More

If you want a clean room fresh towels every day and a comfy bed to sleep in that is reasonable....this is the inn for you. The decor is dated the parking is tight but adequate....but hey it was cheap and clean. We have no complaints after our 6 day stay. Everyone was nice and accomidating. It is a two story... More

Room was clean, bathroom was clean. Very outdated decor, the paneling could go or at least be painted. As another reveiwer wrote there were no covers on the pillow, just regular pillow cases as well as the beds could use mattress pads. Overall the room was clean and for the price it was a great deal. Too many places use... More

Upon arrival a coworker was complaining about the smell in her room. I offered to change rooms as it smelt like a dog was in the room. After a while of this odor I went and purchased air fresheners to mask the odor. This helped. I also had no control of the heat as the room was about 90 degrees... More

We stayed one night in that well maintained motel. Very clean. When you open the door, you have wood smell has if the hotel was brend new. Small kitchenette, fridge, 2 burner stove, microwave oven, coffee machine and toaster. The room is spacious. About 2 minute walk from downtown.

Nice motel in the village. Offset from the road so street noises are not noticeable. We had a second floor double room. The stairs and balcony are made of wood timbers and the shingle is wood. Nice touch. The room was bigger than expected. Two double beds, desk, table & chairs, TV & coffee maker and chairs on the balcony.... More

Dated, needs overhaul. Has small kitchen area. Reasonably clean. Overpriced. $149.51 for double room, 2 adults. Breakfast not included. No Wi fi. Whilst running a bath some strange brown slime appeared in the bathtub. Let the water out and rinsed the bath. Re-filled, this time ok although water not very warm at all. Staff were polite. Near to all shops... More

This is a nice place too stay. A little noisy and unclean, but if you look for something really cheap this one is better than all other alternatives. It is also located very close to downtown and has parking.

I planned a winter getaway for the weekend for me and my Boyfriend. The place looked good at first. When we got there it was late so we had to go next door to the restaurant to get the key (not a big deal). The room was outdated (also not a big deal) but the top blanket had stains underneith...
