We were in to visit Family and enjoy the Mountain State Forest Festival, we decided on this hotel because we wanted to save some money to have more to spend at the festival. The desk clerks were very rude the entire time we stayed there morning and evening. I very seriously doubt we Will be staying at that hotel again.

Betty, As you might imagine, the week of the Mountain State Forest Festival is our busiest of the year, which can lead to some hectic times in our lobby. That being said, it is inexcusable that you experienced a less than friendly atmosphere while staying with us. Customer interactions are very important to us, and we frequently get positive remarks... More

Every year a number of us tour this outstanding area on motorcycles. Every year this lodge has proven they want the bussiness, want the clients and are willing to acomodate needs. Thank you Evlyn and staff. Just a great group of people that prove every single year they go out of there way to work with customers.

I have frequented this area for a number of years and found this particular residence to very worth while. Especialy due to the staff. The office manager Evlyn goes way out of her way to ensure a decent stay.

I have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting the Seneca Rocks region. The staff is friendly and helpful, housekeeping and maintenance are good, the rooms are clean and comfortable. This location puts you close to all of the fine attractions in this area and you cant beat the price. The continental breakfast is great for a quick bite... More

they were loud, rude and blocked the entrances to the office. They yelled at the men workers crossing the parking lot and they sounded like they were looking for business, They wake you up with their laughing and yelling and walking thru the cigarette smoke to get to the office is disgusting at best. This is the most inconsiderate workers... More

I was surprised to find that there was no coffee maker or hair dryer in the room. I don't know how many years it has been since I stayed in a hotel that did not have a hair dryer! Everyone has to go to the office for coffee! In bad weather, that could be quite a problem as it is... More

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. It is the cheapest hotel so it is not a surprise that others stayed there, but I was not happy that the staff allowed a bike gang to make noise until 2 am. I would stay there again, as long as there is no bike gang there. The desk clerk was... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our motel. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. I'd like to apologize for the noise of the other guests. During the summer months we often find our guests like to enjoy the pleasant weather outside of their rooms. We will work to remind our guests of our quiet hours. Just wanted to remind... More
