I was treated to an unforgettable experience, made memorable in large part by the wonderful staff at the motel. I got excellent tips about the area, its history and things to do.

I have stayed at this hotel for 26 years and to be honest, it had been going downhill badly for years. The new owner and his family are cleaning up this historical property, made the rooms more modern with a fridge/microwave/coffee and good wifi. Best of all to me was the proprietor, Manny, went out of his way to help...

I stayed in the older building on the property, which was beautifully historic. It has a great location in the middle of Amana that is perfect for being able to walk all around the village. The other villages only a short drive away, which is very convenient. Staff was super pleasant and the room was exceptionally clean. The room and...
