Do not stay here! The manager should not be working in customer service and this will be your worst hotel experience. The manager is not helpful and he will do anything to charge you extra money. It is worth it to drive the extra miles to stay some place else. The manager accused us of having too many people in... More

If possible I would rate this motel w/a negative rating. My sister had booked this motel for my family and a second room for our aunt and uncle for her daughters wedding. When we checked in we were not asked how many in our room (was a lady). The next day first I was asked who my sister was and... More

I stayed at the motel during some home construction and the owner/manager could not have been more accomodating. He went out of his way to be sure I was comfortable and had everything that I needed in my room. The room was clean, neat, quiet and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

This hotel is very clean. The owner runs this place and was friendly and helpful all throughout our 3 night stay. I gave this hotel 4 stars because there is no elevator so if you have heavy luggage you will struggle a bit to get it to the second floor. Also, the "free high speed wifi" that is advertised does...

We arrived later in the evening and I had called in the afternoon to inform the hotel we would be arriving around 10pm. We arrived at 10:30 pm to find the hotel had already charged us for our room and given our king room away. We ended up with 2 creaky doubles in an outdated, steamy upstairs room and no... More

I've stayed here twice now because I could not get closer to Green Lake where I wanted to be. The place is small, appears to be owned by the guy who is there 24-7 and is a little suspect when it comes to cleanliness. The price is just okay. Not terrible but I'd rather not stay there. The free breakfast... More

if you are on a business trip and you want a clean and warm hotel to take rest after an heavy day of work this Hotel is not suggested. There is no breakfast (so you have to plan another place to get it), the room was terribly cold, the furnitures are ' 70s and never renovated.... so, for these kinds... More

I wish the review scale went into the negatives because staying here was the worst experience I've ever had. We stayed at this hotel for an out of town wedding keeping in mind that there are only two hotels in berlin. When i went to check in, I had high hopes. The hotel was clean and the owner seemed nice,... More

Make sure to write all your information down that he gives you. Hotel clerk - owner tried giving us a differnt story than what he told us when we booked the rooms prior to our arrive date. Owner is dry, reserved, hard to understand, tight and doesn't like to spend $ on anything but wants to charge you for everything.... More
