Good value is not worth disgustingly dirty rooms, hard as a rock bed and traffic noise. I don't think they have put anything but bed linen as new since Elvis stayed there. The man at the front was unfriendly and there was no iron or coffee.

Booking online you are warned: 2 day advance cancellation else you forfeit one nights stay... Well they must make a lot of money that way! We checked in: Where do we potty the dog? "Right around the back of the building" Well the back of the building was across the street to the weedy unkempt area of no sidewalk -... More

For a highway frontage road location you get what you would expect. A decent price and a variety of characters for neighbors. The rooms were a bit cleaner then I expected, but still could use a bit more attention to details (such as cleaning under the chairs and table). I love the town and the locals seem really nice. If...

Our room was clean and included a fridge and microwave (both also clean). There's coffee in the office and the manager was nice, though not chatty. Free Wi-Fi. Not super quiet since it's by the freeway but it didn't keep me up either. Nice place, would stay again!

This hotel was clean in the bathroom, but the carpet and chairs were not. Dust covered the broken lamps. I literally stripped the bed and slept with my pillow and blankets. I can't say you get what you pay for. Because it really wasn't a bargain at $77. Close to fishing

I had stayed here many years back with my old mom; we liked in then so when I was searching for a motel in the area and Kalama River Inn came up; I thought : "fine" I booked a room with a queen bed received a confirmation #. It took me maybe 2 hours to drive there. When I got... More

Very displeased with certain aspects of our stay. The cleaning staff messed up our room service schedule & I had to call for our room to be cleaned twice in our week stay. The last phone call I was informed that our room was cleaned the day before, which was untrue. After arguing this mistake with the owner, she stated... More

We stayed 2 nights and although it is not fancy or new, it was clean and we got a good night's sleep. It served our purpose...easy off the freeway and close to our fishing destination. Our truck was carrying our freezer and ice chest in the bed of the truck and we had no problems with other people.

This motel, in reality, serves its function. It's fairly inexpensive and conveniently borders I-5. One does hear freeway noise, but not to the point where it interferes with sleeping.

Closest place to my job site so stayed 2 nights here. Convenient but nothing special. Good enough place to stop over if you need somewhere to sleep & can't travel farther. Bathroom was clean. Shower was fine.. Heard traffic, not too bothersome. Bed was old, need to change it out. Bedding cheap. Microwave-fridge-BASIC tv channels. Restaurant that shares the parking... More
