I stayed here for an event, and unfortunately I was given a room in an older part of the motel. It was honestly like a ridiculous maze getting to my room, and it seems others may have experienced it similarly, as I ran into other wanderers a couple of times during my first attempt to find my room.
Once there, the room was clean and spacious, although not as modern and up to date as my friends' rooms in the main building--mine definitely was showing its age. Still, despite not having a spa bath, my bathtub was nice and roomy, and the separate shower was okay(although the shower head was an older kind stuck to the wall from a great height).
I think if you were a family traveling by car, the annex might be a really good choice, as there's lots of parking spaces near the doors, but for somebody attending an event and arriving by plane or train, it makes less sense to stay so far off the beaten track.
The daytime receptionist women were firm but friendly, but were unable or unwilling to change my room to one that wasn't in BumF+ck Iowa unless I paid €79 extra per evening. The night duty reception clerk was much more accommodating, at least when it came to cakes, unlocking the pastry case for our hungry and drunken group after hours.
The bar was pleasant, and photos from friends who visited the restaurant looked really amazing. Breakfast was quite okay as well. It seems like quite the local hotspot on a Saturday night, as we saw families and couples who were coming in from nearby areas for dinner.
