We stayed over the July 4th holiday weekend (2 nights) and had a good experience for the most part. We had one of the smallest rooms (2 doubles) with refrigerator and microwave. No in-room coffee maker but the owner had coffee ready in the small lobby at any time you requested...which we did at 6am. Apparently, the larger rooms do... More

Small family owned motel. The room was clean and sheets and towels were nice and clean. We have stayed here a few times over the years. The price is right for visiting family where you just need a bed and shower. No frills but clean and safe.

Boyfriend and I decided to take a weekend trip out of town with the kayaks. My neighbor had stayed at this motel before and said very good things about her experience so we decided to try it for ourselves. The owner is delightful and very accommodating. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The room prices are extremely reasonable, therefore... More

I've stayed here a many times in the past. It's the only motel with a pool and it's always clean. Would bring my kids here n have a ball all day. I stay here every time I'm in the area. Always clean and the owners are excellent. Guess u can't help the flies since it's so close

My husband and I were in town for business, he had stayed here before in Summer '10. It is not new, interiors probably date back to the early 60's. It was quiet and clean. There are quite a lot of flies in the area, and yes, they came into the room. My husband said the pool was clean when there... More

I needed one night since my son was at the Bayport Scout camp and I came down friday night for the campfire and drove home early Saturday morning. The room was reasonably clean. I did have a few flies in the room, but roadside motels can have this since the door opens into the parking lot. I would stay here... More

Gave 4 stars for the value. We arrived driving through town. Very dismayed with the appearance of the Days Inn. We drove here. The place was good for the $50.00. Quite, clean and near the river. I believe, the family lives behind it.s We stayed in a non-smoking rooms which are the closest to the quiet area with a glimpse... More
