The motel is very "blah" looking from the parking lot and the grounds could use some TLC ... some simple trimming around the perimeter to make it look more appealing. There is a small playground and a picnic shelter nearby, but that is it. Even the check-in location is not nearby.
The room was clean and the bathroom had been recently updated, but beware of the very low showerhead if you are over 5 1/2 feet tall. It is a bump on the head waiting to happen. There is a nice picture window looking out over the woods and a screened door allowing access to the small porch. The screen in room 210 was completely broken out so thank goodness it was too hot out to want to open the door for some fresh air. The A/C worked great and block out the noise we could hear through the connecting door.
Be prepared for VERY hard mattresses and one of the two beds having those awful plastic mattress covers.
At $60 a night, you get what you pay for and it is far safer than driving home after being on the river all day.
BTW ... if you plan on grilling: bring bug coils, fly swatters, etc. The horse flies were horrible and leave a wicked bite!
