I stayed here for a work convention in August 2014 and I found that for the price you pay, it isn't that bad of a motel. Yeah, it is right beside the train tracks. You would notice this as you pull into the parking lot and it is also right on the water. Aside from it being old and worn... More

We stayed here last night and was highly disappointed. There were 10-15 hairs on the floor of the bathroom. We got into bed and there was sand and gritty stuff between the sheets. also beware, the motel is right next to the train tracks. The train came by in the middle of the night and work all of us up.... More

These people will entrap you if they think you have a dog staying there. They don't tell you when you check in, but they will try to fine you $250.00 if they think that you have a dog staying there. Also, they will kick you out but not refund your room fee. So make sure you pay with part cash... More

Well, you win some and you lose some when you are traveling on a tight budget and this is definitely in the later category. The Old Mill is definitely outdated and for me its only redeeming qualities were that it was clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. Otherwise it still needs a facelift.

The Old Mill is right on the River. Very pretty location and we were glad we booked ahead as the hotel looked to be almost full. Our unit over looked the lake and the sandy beach. We went for a walk on the shore and met many travellers doing the same thing. The room was large, the bed comfy including... More

This is an older somewhat delapidated motel, but it was clean, the service was good, the view from the balcony is beautiful, and there is a lovely private beach on the property. Although there had clearly been some updating done in our room, it needed much more. However I'd stay again just for the view and beach. Be advised there... More

The folks who run the place are certainly nice, but the place itself has seen better days. No smoking, perhaps—but the rooms reek of smoke. They bill the rooms as cozy--if cozy is crappy 70s furniture that you wouldn't want to sit on. We got stuck in this town (itself not much of a destination)--Old Mill was the only option... More

We needed a place to crash and decided to stop in for the night. The room was small but was recently updated and our stay was pleasant. The room was very clean and provided a microwave, refrigerator and a small flat screen television. The bathroom looked to be recently renovated which was nice to see. Overall a good experience for...

When I pulled the motorcycle in front of the office, the owner came outside to see. When I went inside, he called me by name. Ok - it's early June and the tourists aren't here yet. But there are lots of special touches in the rooms. Hard wood floors, granite countertops, refrigerator, Wifi password posted in a prominent place, bathrooms... More

The rooms are small and basic, but good for a one nite's stay. If one likes the sound of running water get a room on the river side and listen to the running water all nite. It is a older hotel and the rooms aren't, all that soundproof, the staff are friendly, but all in all for the price worth... More
