My fiancé and I were vendors for Dickens on the Strand last year, and we could not have been happier with our stay! Our bed and room was massive, it had a microwave and fridge, so we saved on going out, the tv was great, and the view was really nice. The best thing is that it was CLEAN, which... More

I pulled up and there was a police car parked outside the entrance. The owner ran up to our vehicle and starting talking quickly to let me know the police is a friend of theirs and is not there for any disturbance. This seemed like an odd behavior, considering we had not even gotten out of our car yet. I... More

You’re the one I was asking to leave not another guest; you broke my motel policy and were asked to leave. As for walking up to your pick up, you kept circling around and that was suspicious, so asked you to pull up under the canopy. The police is a local officer who had pulled a 12hr shift, stopped him... More

I researched many places for my stay for a huge wrestling show and the Scottish Inn sounded perfect. I was right. When I checked in the owner was really friendly and allowed me to check in a bit early. He was very welcoming and was always available and friendly. The rooms were nice. I read that you hear traffic from... More

We were so happy to have picked this lovely hotel. We felt very cared for, which is lacking these days from alot of the chains. This family owned establishment met and exceeded our family's needs. It was affordable, comfortable, and we would definitely stay again! It was minutes from everything. I have to say this was one of our best... More

After reading many reviews, I settled on staying at the Scottish Inn the night before our RCCL cruise. We were going to be there on my daughter's fiance's birthday. To save money, we all shared a double room. I couldn't afford to spend a lot of money, but I still wanted something clean, comfortable and convenient. This didn't disappoint. The... More
