Charmingly decorated room, remodeled bathrooms, colored towels, nice touches! Coffee in the room, and good coffee, at that! Very clean. Was disappointed to have missed the donuts in the morning. I guess 9 a.m. was too late, as office was locked up when we got up. If I ever get back in this area again, I would love to stay... More

Better than the other big name motel chains. The whole experience with Mike and Gina was great. Stayed 3 nights. The room was clean and big. Beds were comfortable as hell. Ambience was just overall welcoming. Would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

We drove from Minnesota and our room was very nice and clean. There was coffee, tea, hot cocoa in the room. The new owners even had homemade doughnuts one morning. We were very happy there for 6 days. The owners wanted us to be comfortable.

This was one of the worst places I've stayed. The room looked like something out of a garage sale mixed with bizzare, think pepto pink, paint. The sofa bed was hard as a rock as was the bed.
