Horrible dirty place. Owners rude and shifty. Room smelled really nasty sweet cloying smell unable to determine where it was coming from. Opened the fridge and it smelled rotten. Lights were broken, wall had stains dropped down it. Window in bathroom had sign on not to open and a sharp piece of wood wedging it closed. Party of 5 in... More

Worst place I have ever stayed. Staff not friendly. We had requested extra pillows when making the reservation and never got them. Inside one nightstand we found an unused condom. In the other we found a broken bong. No amenities at all. No hair dryer (not even a plug in the bathroom), no shampoo. Just 2 tiny bars of soap.... More

We stayed there last night. We wanted to stay in Asheville but everyone we called was full. I think we just checked too late. We wanted to see the sunset on Mt Mitchell and we had no cell service so we couldn't book a room early. Anyway, we found the Nakon Motel in the next town on Google. They had... More

I have stayed at this motel twice in the last two months, and have found it to be a very clean, neat place to stay at an affordable price. There is some noise from traffic that passes by the motel, but that's unavoidable. The owner and his wife are very polite and go out of their way to make your... More

Please call me asap at 480-241-8241 and please leave a vm if I cannot answer your call and please leave your number on your vm so that I may call you back. The motel managers refuse to give me the owner's number.

Very nice rooms and owner! My husband was @ work and the owner gave me a ride to the store. You dont find that anywhere! The only drawback was the noisy traffic but other than that its a great place to stay! Angela Lyle-Johnson
