I had to stay in Paxton when I had car trouble nearby. The only lodging in Paxton was this place. The decor was definitely dated, but the room was large and the bed was comfy, especially for the low price.

The entire facility shows the attention to detail of the owners. My room was very clean with new towels and crisp sheets plus recently replaced carpet. In addition to the obvious updating, there were newer furnishings, new refrigerator and a new microwave plus with many decorative touches. There is fresh paint everywhere and the outside is clean and tidy. Still,... More

Small place off the highway, seems pretty good. The motel features some amendities such as a tv, heating, and a microwave. I didn't use any of it since it was pretty much just a middle of the night stop. Beds are pretty large, and the bathrooms are nice.

We booked 2 rooms for 3 nights and offered a refrigerator and microwave and the one room the refrigerator was not working and had to ask to be moved to another room. One room smelled like mildew and the screen was missing on a window that anyone could climb in very easily. For a small motel that you drive up... More

don't. stopped here one night in search of refuge from a blizzard. not inexpensive, i think they saw me coming. rude reception, rude owner. avoid at all costs unless, like me, you don't really have any other choice. (sleeping in your car is probably better.)

This may have been a nice place 40 years ago. It is rundown, needs major face lift. Outside appearance is awful. Room was as clean as it could be given what housekeeping has to work with. Bathroom caulking failing, stained or missing. Shower head held on by caulk...which failed. Carpet from bathroom to bedroom area lifting away from floor creating... More

The owner of this establishment is caring and concienous . Good prices We had to leave a broken down car there for a week and he did not charge the ten dollar overnight fee he usually does. Very professional and helpful. The prices are quite affordable, so don't expect the Ritz.

Me and my family were forced to stay in this place because of a snowstorm, when I looked up the price online it was $55 but when I called and told the owner we needed to get out the snowstorm he told me $70 for his last two rooms and I better get there in ten minutes. I wasn't expecting... More

Quiet, clean and convenient. Beats the crowded hotels/motels in the larger cities. Close to several restaurants, one within walking distance, that has great Walleye, if you like fish. Good assortment of food to choose from.

I'm not going to give every little detail and issue. Mostly because I don't have all day. If you like a clean room. This is not the place to stay. The carpet was filthy.
