“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

we have stayed across the river on a previous trip and that place was a very poor choice. this time we wanted to stay near the shopping and food. our room was nice with a balcony overlooking the river and bird watching. the only concern was the bathroom had very little counter space which is a real pain in the you know where.
the breakfast was ok like most free ones are..nothing special.
we were only a 2 minute walk from the restaurant where we had reservations and that was worth the price of admission.
the hotel has ample parking. we would stay there again.

Very nice property. Have to keep talking to get to a decent price for this small town. Clean fair size room with king bed, Quiet. View to a spectacular bridge is obscured by bldgs. Downtown location so easy walk to everything in this town.

Room Tip: Try every connection to get the lowest price.

The location is perfect.we had a river view room on the second floor.  Beautiful view of the river and bridge from the room and balcony. Our room was very clean and nicely appointed for the price.  Now for the negatives, it's an old style motel with exposed stairs. The laundry and breakfast room are in detached buildings across the large parking lot and down the stairs.  It was windy and pretty cold to be going back and forth in the morning. No air conditioning in the room led us to leave the sliding door open which was a little scary but on the second floor it was ok. On the ground floor??? Had to go to the front deck for a bottle of

This is a clean, professionally managed motel in a great location within walking distance of Florence's Old Town restaurants. We paid a little more for a river view room with a balcony, and it was more than comfortable, roomy, and had a very good view of the old highway bridge, a peak of dunes, and some bird and boat traffic. Although we got some predicted drizzle, we even enjoyed the view in the rain.

Room Tip: I'm sure the non-river views are a better value, but if you want to experience the river, and do...

We stayed here for the first time last weekend and the spa rooms were amazing; full sizes hot tub that could easily seat 4 people in addition to a separate bathroom with a good sized shower. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 out of 5 is that some of the buttons on the hot tub were broken, but it didn't seem to impair the basic functionality. The breakfast is above par for a continental breakfast, plenty of choices (even hard-boiled eggs in the fridge). All-in-all we were really pleased and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Worth the extra money for a spam room.

Thank you for your kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed our breakfast bar. I want to apologize for the buttons on the spa, but we found that when we put the timer in, we was able to disconnect the buttons on the spa and seemed to work better with less problems that the guest would have to face. Again, thank you for your kind review.

We have stayed in this motel for a number of times over the years. In the last year there have been many improvements in the rooms and the exterior trim.
The breakfast is OK but nothing to write home about. It provides the basics but while they provide the ability to make waffles there are few other additions.
The rooms have been upgraded and the rooms on the river have a very nice view and provide a relaxing view of the river. These rooms cost slightly more but it seems they are worth it.
Overall this is an excellent site. Partially because of the quality of the site and because it is very close to many good restaurants and gift shops.

Room Tip: Best to choose a room overlooking the river!
