Yes, in addition to what the other outstanding reviews say: Clean rooms, Low rent, Helpful service, etc. The Davis also has an enjoyable “Hummingbird Area.” In fact you can see the birds right out the office picture window while you're checking in. I never realized how tiny, fast and cute they are. Since I have never seen a “Hummingbird Haven”... More

Thanks for your “uppermost ratings”! When we first invited our hummingbirds, it was just for the amusement of our staff. However through comments like yours we soon realized that our guests also enjoyed them. It is quite a treat to see them fluttering around like birds in a Disney movie. We invite all to observe them but remember they are... More

First off, we appreciate the reviews because that is why we decided to give this place a try. The reviews are spot on. We did not go in expecting a 5 star motel. Our mattress was a little hard and the pillows small BUT everything was very clean. Isn't that the important thing? The carpet is not plush but I... More

Thanks for your great review. We are very humbled by wonderful reviews like this from experienced travelers like yourself. We are especially delighted that you noticed how clean we keep are carpeting. There is a lot of effort and expense that goes along with this. If it were easy the other motels that you have stayed at would have clean... More

For just a locally owned “Mon &Pop” the Davis does a great job, clean rooms and inexpensive .In fact I saved over half. Besides that by staying there you help support a locally owned business. With that said, since you are not paying the high rent for a chain, it is unfair to expect their frills like a swimming pool,... More

we stayed here on our way through to DC. The office was really smoky not nice at all. The room was OK clean, bed was a little hard and the only linen to speak of was two towels no hand towel, washer or bathmat. The a/c was really loud.

Checked TripAdvisor for a reasonable price and clean place to bed down for the night on my way to vacation in New York. The Davis seemed to have good reviews so I decided to give it a try. For the price the place is great. However it is just a “mom & pop” so don’t expect the Ritz. What you... More

Thanks for you outstanding review! You are correct we are the Ritz this is because our philosophy is to keep our rates low by offering our guests a clean, comfortable, basic room with a few modern conveniences like a microwave/fridge and free WiFi. Those that are accustomed to more like a swimming pool, we advise to pay more the double... More

Great Stay- Great Price-Great Service-Very Clean!!! This "Mom & Pop" meets all your basics needs Free WiFi- Microwave - Fridge - Bar Next Door with great food and free bands - The reviews were right and I love the charming late 50' decor.

Thank you for your excellent review! We especially love your quote, “Those that say it needs modernizing - DO-NOT-GET- IT." For it seems unlike you few of our guests don’t appreciate the balance we try to maintain between updating our facility and keeping our nostalgic classic “mom and pop” late ’50's motel appearance. We have to be very careful to... More
