My wife and I found the place pleasant and clean. Sure it's like any other place it has its flaws. I bet if we went to some of the homes of the people complaining you would find sweet briar a lot cleaner than there home. We have stayed there several times and I can't find a problem like I see...

My rating matches the number of stars this motel was rated at, so my expectations weren't very high, but for the price we paid for the room, I did expect more. The location was great, especially since it was right across from the event (Oktoberfest, which was pretty sad too). Usually, when a motel is located in a touristy area... More

I rode down the strip a little ways and stopped here the owner was very friendly and my room was clean. It is... More

The outside is nice as well as the lobby. However when you open the door to the room it then becomes a nightmare. There were bugs crawling around, stains in the chairs, stains in carpet. Nasty is the best way to descibe it. Bathroom doors wouldn't shut and you had to use drop cords for outlets. The owner was rude.... More

She gave us information on where to go to see some wonderful views. The room was comfortable, the beds, covers and pillow were... More

Don't go here. NASTY!! Clogged sink, no hot water, could not shut bathroom door, would not walk on floors without shoes on. Barking dog in pen 30' behind the motel. Paint peeling off ceiling and walls. Analog TV only. Creepy old man peeking in whenever you opened the door. Deadbolt lock didn't work.
