Don't let the word "Motel" conjure up images of stained bedspreads, unidentifiable stains on the walls, and a cheap price. Glen Oaks Motel is hip, relaxing, and clean (the prices ain't motel-ish, either).
Ditto on what others have said about the great location. Beautiful trees, a short walk to the river, and a short drive or hike to the coast. Coffee (and it's good coffee) is ready at 8:00 am, and there is a good place for breakfast next door (huge portions).
What we especially appreciated about Glen Oaks was its beautiful, serene grounds. Our six-month old was still on Central Time, and we had to go back to the hotel to put him to bed before most people had started even thinking about dinner. Armed with a bottle of wine, takeout, and a baby monitor, my husband and I continued our vacation each evening by the outdoor fire-pit. Our room had a private courtyard, for which we paid extra, but we preferred to sit out front so we could see the trees and hills. If we had stayed at another hotel, we might have felt like prisoners, but at Glen Oaks, each night was a date night (even with a baby).
The only thing we didn't like was that the heat source is a gas fireplace. Romantic, yes, but the fire would automatically turn on in the wee hours of the morning and wake us up.
