Truly...the view here is quite phenominal. It is very scenic, so much so that the gentleman at the front desk wanted to charge me $5 extra for a front room at check-in. When I told him no thanks, he did let me stay in a room on the front side at no extra charge. I guess it was the old up sale, but don't loose a customer over it. My room was for all practical purposes pretty clean, and the bed really slept well. The pillows were much better than you normally see in motel in this category (see my profile). The TV worked ok, and the WIFI worked well, although it took me a couple of tries to get it to go. All in all, with a coupon, the room was a little over $46.00, which was not a bad deal. In fact I would even term it a decent stay for a traveling sales person, and I might consider it again. The thing which was problematic was there wasn't a working ice machine on the property for customers, although they would fill your bucket at the desk if you go ask. My feeling on this is simply this, a motel with this many rooms must really be trying to cut costs to go in the middle of July with no ice. I've always felt that a motel really should have a sign at the desk informing people that there is no ice available for customers. If, like this inn, they are willing to do it at the desk, this should be on the sign also. It's only fair to notify customers that there is one aspect of a typical motel stay which will not be available currently during your stay.
