I got my room, when into it and noted that it smelled of cigarette smoke, The bathroom toilet literally had human excrement in it " NOT FLUSHED" there were no towels or toilet paper and the bedding and one pillow had only what I can assume was pee stains. Also the garbage can in the kitchenette had used condom wrappers... More

It is it what it is don't get your hopes up but for me it was the location that made it very convenient. I had to go to a wedding in the area and we stayed here for 2 nights. I left a sports coat in the closet and they saved it for me. I returned months later when I... More

I stayed at this Swiss motel for a night. This motel was the only accommodation I was able to find. This place was run down and not properly cleaned. I would not stay at Swiss Motel again. I do not recommend.

The room was very comfortable. The service was great. We had the top floor corner overlooking the river. Beautiful view. The place was quiet and relaxing and very clean. The morning coffee was fabulous. I would definitely go again. Nice bargain.

Without question if the room was free I would not return. My sons bedroom is kept better than this. Really dirty. Asked for an extra pillow and was told NO, only 2 pillows to a room. NO PHONES!! No cups or glasses. Read all the other reviews and then multiply by 10. Did I mention this was $166 a night?... More

SInce it had been newly renovated we thought the motel would be a good deal. It was NOT. There was urine on the toilet and hair on the shower walls. The floor was filthy and the room was simply generally unclean. I would not recommend it no matter how tight you budget is.

...but we had a reservation and no place else to go on short notice. When I saw it on Tripadvisor, I liked the price and the pictures of the river, but those were the only good things about this place. (Actually, it's over priced.) I thought the people with the negative reviews might be "fussy", which I'm not. I wish... More

Looks nice from the outside and it's a pretty piece of property. The things you are likely to touch in the room look clean, but around the edges of the floors there is lots of dirt, lint and who knows what. Walls had globs of something on them, back of the door was revolting. Given the location and scarcity of... More

Ewwwww, OMG and more. We walked in and ran the hell out. Requested our money back, after threatening we'd call the cops. We got our money back. 4 Girls on a girls weenend trip, a little wine tasting and some shopping and we were hoping for a nice nights sleep. Absolutely not. I won't go on with details. I would...
