A great find. My wife and I were traveling from Bend, Or. to Fremont when we had a 2nd. flat tire on our trailer. We were stuck along I-5 on Sunday evening with no spare (already used it earlier). We couldn't get anybody to come help us for any price. I checked maps on my phone and saw this Lodge... More

We have stayed here many times over the years. Jim, the old manager was always super nice. I'm happy to say the new manager is just as nice! This is the cleanest motel you will ever find any where near its price range. They have s very nice place to bbq if you do desire, although the grass wasn't cut... More

I just wanted to personally say for myself (Chris) and my significant other (AL) that we can't think of a "better place" to spend our vacation time on or at, with the wonderful folks that treat us like royalty (Jim & his wife Laurie)!

This place is owned by a husband/wife team. From the outside, it seems old and quaint. But the rooms smell musty (from the old, uncared-for furnishings) and aren't cleaned well with very uncomfortable beds. Cheap linens and I don't think the blankets/bedspreads had been washed in a while. The best thing about the room were the fluffy towels. When I... More
