I came from north west Mississippi to spend some time with my son which I haven't seen in a couple years. I arrived in Dover around 4 pm I seen the sign for the motel that read 40 dollars and free WiFi so I stopped there. I have myself and my 3 children with me when I went in the... More

This little Inn is run by an retired husband and wife with a colorful history behind them. I enjoyed talking with the gentleman upon check in. His wife still does a lot for charities, including making dolls to sell and collecting cans for cash to donate. The Inn is small but quaint with a "grandma" feel to it, or at... More

Enjoyed our honeymoon there. Owned by sweet couple. Generous, caring, and good values. Room was clean and felt like home away from home. Location was quiet and ideal for local nearby outdoor activity. Plan to go there again.

Just moved to the area and went to check out the fishing. The motel overlooks one of the public boat launch facilities and has easy access to some great bank fishing. The staff was very friendly and talkative and were attentive to my stay. The rooms were average size and furnished in a quaint style but they were clean and... More

I have been staying here during the week going on four months with my two co workers building a new fire hall. The mayor of Stewart county Rick Joiner, highly recommended us to stay here. During our time, which is on going, we have had no complaints. The rooms are always clean with fresh linens, they're pet friendly, it's quite,... More

Upon my first seeing this 'review' early this morning, I've spent a fair bit of time considering whether, or in what manner, I should actually post a response. The statement is so over the top that it seems to me that the average reader is likely to hold it suspect without my poking my nose in. And so I've decided... More

I had called and made reservation for June 20, 2014 for 3 people. I notice then the guy I was talking to was pretty rude but needed a room so looked over it. I called on the 20th and told him that we were going to be running late. He looked at the book and asked how late? I told... More

Enjoyed the managers help in getting to the Inn and their company once we arrived. It is best to make a reservation but if you are not sure about your schedule you can walk in. Just make sure you call before 10pm if you are going to arrive late. They might want your credit card info to hide a key... More

I have no idea what this is about, unless it was the guest who tracked clay throughout the room, and over the carpets. Upset my mom a bit, but I'm used to that kind of mess and just got out the carpet cleaner. No biggie. I will say "yes" to the "red mud flows thru the parking lot when it... More

We called and told them we were two hours south and we wanted to make it up to them for the night (because of the reviews on here). We also asked if it was ok if we had a small dog. They said it was fine with some conditions. Before we could say good bye the line went silent on... More

This is Bill; my parents are the owners of the Inn. This was an unfortunate event for which we are truely sorry. As the reviewer stated, the phone call abruptly ended in the middle of the conversation. Unfortunately, no personal info from the caller had yet been taken, to include any phone number, and we received no call back before... More
