“ask for what you want”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We booked for 2 nights into this hotel in January. We were given a dinky room. It was clean and the bathroom was very nice but it was extremely small for the price. My husband complained and we were given a bigger room automatically. The heater had to be turned on to cold for 20 minutes before the heat could be turned on so we sat outside to wait because it was warmer out there. The free internet didn't work until the office fixed it. The grounds especially around the unheated pool need to be upgraded The office was cooperative but we had to ask for everything.

Room Tip: There seems to be 2 kinds of room fr the same price. Ask for the larger room.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

The rooms are much better than one would expect given the location and type of motel. Nothing fancy, just not dinged up, dirty, and dilapidated. Niceties include a microwave, flat screen TV, and free WiFi. The woman one duty was quite friendly.

Two things; the beds are hard and the heating / cooling unit is noisy. To be fair, the heat and cooling units looked pretty new, having probably been refreshed at the same time as the rest of the room. But they are still noisy. For quiet heating and cooling you really do have to go to a fancier hotel.

I loved my stay here. The whole place is ground floor, which makes it look older - like something out of a road movie. The sign has some letters falling off. The chairs at the pool (cool, deep) are kinda piled in a corner. But wow, the rooms are great. Plenty of hot water, new bathrooms, firm mattresses, comfortable sheets, aircon, free wifi, all the conveniences, a big fridge, space. The owner is friendly and will wake up at 4.30am to make you coffee. Stayed there with my actors before a film shoot that began at before dawn the next morning. Worth every cent and then some.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

When you pull up you see an older looking motel and wonder. However thr rooms have been updated very nicely. The floors are lamate in the room and a very pretty white tile has been used in the bathroom.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bed is firm. The TV is a HD flat screen. There is a hair dryer, small fridge, and a microwave. A small wooden table for two finishes off this very nice comfortable room.

A bit of traffice noise can be heard, but I never noticed it during the night.

The price was very reasonable at $70ish including tax.

No breakfast, but there is a nice looking outdoor swimming pool.

What a great find. We stayed here on one of the busiest weekends of the year, and the staff was very accommodating and pleasant. The room had recently been renovated, and it was very clean. The location was convenient for the horse show, also.

What a refreshing example of friendliness and hands on service. This motel is homey, clean and a wonderful deal moneywise. No breakfast - but the important thing is the rooms are super clean and smell good.
