We spent two nights recently at the Indian Trail Motel. My Mom booked three rooms for our party of nine (family reunion). We got a package deal where four tickets to Noah's Ark were included with each room; considering tickets to Noah's cost $40 each I felt like it was a good deal.
The motel is in a great location: an easy walk to downtown (four or five blocks), a good restaurant next door, a convenience store across the street, and woods behind the motel that gives it a country feel. The motel rooms are arranged in three or four different strips; and our strip was set back a ways from the road, which was nice. We could pull right up outside our room door and park. There were two chairs sitting outside each room; many guests seemed to enjoy sitting outside on these (a few of them were smoking).
The room was very basic, with extremely dated decor.....like out of the 1970s. But the room was absolutely spotless, and much cleaner than some other chain hotels we've stayed in. Our room had two queen sized beds, cable TV, microwave, dorm fridge. a small table with chairs, a nightstand, and desk. The room was good sized; we had plenty of space (two adults and three kids in one room). The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was tiny, as was the shower. It's apparent (and sad) that we as Americans have gotten much bigger in size since the motel was first built. The sink is outside the bathroom. The air conditioner was a window unit, but worked great for cooling the room down quickly.
The motel's lobby is hooked on to a large house (the owner's, I'd imagine). When we first checked in, we had to ring a doorbell on the desk since no one was in the lobby. The manager (owner?) came immediately to check us in. She was very friendly and helpful during our stay. She's the only one I ever saw manning the desk.
There's an outdoor pool (heated), indoor pool, hot tub (perfect temperature), and sauna. We enjoyed both pools and the hot tub. We also enjoyed the ping pong table outside, and the shuffleboard. You can get gear for both games in the lobby. I also saw a volleyball net in the back yard. There was a swing set out front, and picnic tables and grills in the back.
A big surprise were the nature trails on the property. There were two or three short trails behind the motel, going into the woods. They're short; walking on all trails equals maybe 1/4 to 1/2 mile. It was so nice though being able to go on a stroll through the woods.
I would absolutely stay again at Indian Trail.
