Yes it's a small "rustic" type hotel. We paid $75 for a double room which slept our family of 5 so not bad. AC in our room worked great, we froze! We loved the river in the back and got our bathing suits on to play in be the cold mountain water. Yes we seen bees and a few ants... More

This motel has a huge ant problem. And in serious need of updating. The rooms are also very overpriced in my opinion for what you get. I would not stay here again. The owner was very nice and I do believe he is working on getting the ants under control.

We didn't actually spend the night here. We arrived in the early afternoon and knew what we were getting as far as the room goes, and were okay with that aspect of our stay for one night. The room is small and dated, but was very clean. The owner, who was very nice, warned us that there was ant problem,... More

When we made our reservation we knew what we were signing up for – a small, older, family run roadside motel. We have no problems staying in these, particularly when we stay in small towns. Reservation via phone and check in went smoothly. As expected, the room was dated, and with the exception of the dusty ceiling fan, it was... More

This was the only hotel in chimney rock that would let us book a room for one night over the weekend of the 4th. My husband and I checked in around 3 and the lady behind the counter was very sweet and let us pay cash. We were planning on meeting some friends at lake lure but saw the beach... More

This motel is in a great location and very close to the river running behind it. The room we stayed in had a king bed with a private balcony. The room had wood paneling on the walls and ceiling, a ceiling fan above the bed and the room was clean. The lady at the office was very friendly and quick... More

If you have read any of the other reviews of this property, you have already learned it is an older motel in need of TLC. If you are expecting a 5 star resort with amenities this is not the place for you. If however, you are looking for a clean (met my wife's picky standards), inexpensive room with a balcony... More

While the location is excellent the whole property is in need if repair and updating! Our room had a lovely balcony over the river but kits of ants. The air conditioner had cardboard pieces between it and the windows. Staff was friendly at checkin but then basically absent for our two night stay. Cannot recommend for others!
