The motel was great. It wasn't where we originally planned to stay, but due to the snow, we couldn't get to the more "trendy" motel we had intended on staying at. When we got to Hidden Valley, I rang the bell, and Mr. Harrison came and let us in the office, it was around 11:00 PM, and the couple live at their motel, and obviously were in bed. The rate was a modest $55 per night, and this was a true rate, with any taxes or other charges, already figured in. The room was as clean as any that I have stayed in, and were very roomy. They were fixed up like a guest room in some older persons house---right down to the ceiling fan, family pictures on the wall, and decorative cookie canisters on the shelves. Like I said, I felt like I was staying at my grandparent's house. The next morning, we saw Mrs. Harrison cleaning the rooms, and we asked her where we could buy a hair dryer, due to there not being one in the room. She said not to go buy one, my wife and daughter could borrow hers. Like I said, just like a trip to Grandmas house. The motel did not have a free continental breakfast or all of the amenities, you will find at the larger motels. But if you want a room with friendly service, and one where you know the sheets are changed every night---oh and a bargain too, then stay at this motel.
