The Positives: adequately clean, roomy with a little more space than typical for a simple motel room, small deck overlooking the lovely main deck, a little away from the main busy area (a plus for us), friendly helpful staff, fridge & microwave in every room, a very lovely main deck open to all guests with gorgeous flowers, nice plus is a coat rack in addition to the typical clothes rod with hangers
The Negatives: no air conditioning, one window wouldn’t open and the window design prevents the breeze from entering the room to cool it off (but you can request a fan from the front desk), must walk outside quite a distance from some rooms to get to the ice machine – could be problem in winter but was fine in the summer, there is no table in the room – just a desk so eating in the room is not easy, the main deck had only one table so only one group could eat there – this is silly since there is plenty of room for at least 3 more tables (we had to race to get the table and only succeeded once)
Note: The parking lot in back abuts a wooded area. So you feel like you are truly in the woods and not in a town. Sometimes there are even elk grazing in those woods.
Overall, a reasonable option. I would stay here again.
