“Not worth $70!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This was our last resort for a hotel, we were tired and have 4 cranky kids, so we accepted a $70 room. The hotel looks creepy and ran down, but the owner/front desk person was extremely nice. The room was a typical old motel room, NOTHING to mention that would make me come back. They advertised free breakfast (which is huge with 4 kids) and when we woke up, the lobby had a box of some cheap processed cookies and a can of instant coffee laid out - a joke! There was noone at the desk when we checked out. Would never recommend this.

This motel doesn't appear to be much on the outside, but my room was impressively clean and large as well. It very obviously does come from another era, but I found this charming rather than a bad thing. Overall, great value for money and a friendly owner too!

I was charged $50 for a $30 room. The floor was dirty and there were bugs. The basics worked fine: AC, shower, TV. But it's a run down place and I wish I had stayed at the Buena Vista Motel, which is just down the street and looked so much nicer, for the same price (I found out the next day when I changed motels...) And they only serve breakfast on the weekends, so I didn't even get coffee in the morning.

For fifty bucks a night it's good value if 2 of you are sharing the cost.
Don't expect too much here the rooms and the motel are in need of serious money being spent on them and whilst perhaps ‘shabby’ would be too strong a word to describe it, it wouldn’t be a million miles away.
The guy who owns the motel is good value and once you break the ice with him he’s a good laugh!
At the end of the day when you’ve been living in a shelter on the AT for 6 days this place seems fantastic!

No hot water in the showers. Heater in the room broke at around 10 so the room was freezing the next day. Worst experience ever. Do not stay here if you can help it.
