The most horrible hotel in my life! Everything is disgusting: microwave all dirty, the refrigerator doesn't cool at all and the towels and bedsheets are nasty!!! Please, if you can stay in other place and want to enjoy your vacation do NOT stay here!!!!

I would not recommend this motel to any person OR animal. It was absolutely disgusting. After traveling in a snowstorm, this was the first motel that was seen, so we pulled over and checked in. Upon entering the room there was a tile falling out of the ceiling, cigarette butts in the toilet, and a funky smell. But it was... More

I would go to this quiet motel especially because they have wonderful and caring manager along with his family . I loved it and so did my hubby . They were very helpful and kind. I especially like the fact that Alexa Bay was only 10 minutes away from us .

We stayed here out of necessity - There was nothing else available for miles due to a local concert. I still owe apologies for making us stay there. This was, without exaggeration, the worst place I have ever slept in... and I've slept under a bathroom sink. It was expensive. The bathroom was filthy (towels were pre-moistened and there was...

My band stayed here one night awhile back when we were on tour. All of the other motels/hotels were booked so we drove around and found this one. When we pulled in, I noticed a small tree growing in what used to be a swimming pool. As soon as I stepped into my room, the smile was wiped off my... More

Probably the grossest place I've ever stayed at - and we are budget travelers. Where to begin - The stairs going up were treacherous. The room was tiny and very, very shabby, there was an ashtray in a nonsmoking room, cigarette burns on the disgusting looking chair, old, yucky curtains that barely closed, and gross, ancient upholstery. It was filthy... More
