I called to make room arrangements and all was well until I said I had my service dog. No rooms available at that point! This was the second motel in this same town to have issues with a service dog! I obviously did not stay here!

This motel has a little problem with the entrance to the property because there is no concrete there, just a dirt road where you need to enter the property. There is also a big section of dirt/mud in the center of a large u-shaped footprint of the motel with the rooms along the edges of the square unpaved space. But... More

This motel was my 'oasis' on a cold, snowy nasty night! And as a former 'housekeeping employee' (maid) I am extremely critical of the cleanliness of any room that I stay in! Especially as a smoker I am hesitant of selecting a 'smoking' room. They usually smell worse than an ashtray. NOT THIS ROOM! It was exceptionally clean and clean... More
