This is a small motel it's older but clean and well run. We had a nice quiet and relaxing time. The river is right outside your door it was nice to see poeple fishing. My husband went to the casino it was about a 10 minute ride.

Family of four stayed two nights. Excellent location near the park and on the river. Woman at the front desk was professional and very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi worked well. Bathroom small but clean with everything working as expected. Only downside was the rate - somewhat pricey with no breakfast.

My original hotel reservation was cancelled at the last minute had an 85 year old mom and 3 dogs to find lodging for and was panicked they gave me numbers of a few... More

I had called while a few hours away. Patty at the desk took our reservation without question, and when I called to follow-up she assured us that our stay was reserved. She told us not to trust our GPS, and she was right. Told us to call if we needed clearer directions which we did! The room was clean, not... More

We stayed here one night. It was a good room, not fancy but comfortable. The suite room I had was on the bottom floor, had two beds in two rooms, and French doors that opened up looking on the water. Tubers floated by and a lot of ducks. Too bad it's illegal to fish from the room because you certainly... More

Nothing fancy, but they more than make up for it with cleanliness and hospitality. The location is convenient and the motel itself is right next to the water. Quiet, peaceful. The kids tubed in the water right outside the room. The staff who run the motel are so friendly. You feel like you are being treated like a guest in... More

Very clean, well-furnished, good bathrooms. Can't beat the beautiful river running outside your door! My son had a great time with the river. Close to town and to the park entrance. Don't be deterred by the looks of the place when you pull in.

I got married in September and I found this place for my husband and I and our family and friends.. When we first pulled in, we were a little concerned but first impressions don't do this place justice. As soon as you turn the corner towards your room the amount of charm is nearly breathtaking! There is a beautiful river... More

First impression does not do this hotel justice. I will be honest on arrival, with half the motel sign out I was concerned about upkeep. But the room was lovely and clean. No phone. But who wants a phone when you have a beautiful rolling river right off the balcony?!? Had a wonderful stay. Would definitely return!
