Don't let the web pics fool you. Room was barely bigger than the bed with cinder block walls. They had ziplock bags of French Toast for breakfast. I've been in jails with more charm. People were nice.

The staff that was working the night that we checked in (7/4/16) was so helpful! He showed us on a map, the best places to watch the fireworks (we stayed over 4th of July). When we got to our room it was clean, cozy and decorated tastefully. We stayed in a Queen room, perfect for the 2 of us. The... More

This is the second time we have stayed at William Munger Inn, and we will be back. The proprietors are wonderful, always nice and welcoming. The rooms are simple and clean, not pristine. The breakfast is simple, but good. Fruit, waffles, cereal, coffee, etc. it is right next to the William Munger Trail, which is awesome, and they have bikes... More

I wouldn't really call it an Inn more like an old fashioned roadside motel with perks. Room was fine nothing special but with your stay you get the free zoo pass, use of bikes (and the trail is right behind the motel) and if you ask use of a kayak on the water. The continental breakfast had more items than... More

We interacted with helpful, friendly staff at the front desk. Our room was small, but clean and comfortable. A continental breakfast included cereal, toast, and fruit, as well as coffee, tea, and juice.

Small room, grotty shower, street construction and little lighting in the room. The check in was fast and pleasant, the complimentary breakfast was quite good, and the internet was free and fairly fast. The price was low, and based on the room that is how it should be. I was told that the motel is close to or adjacent to... More

Really enjoyed this quaint inn that was easy to find and close to local restaurants. Appreciated the included continental breakfast, the comforts of the room, and the memorabilia of this multi-generation family owned place.

Price just over $100 for a Jacuzzi suite on a Saturday night but it came with free tickets to the zoo across the street so not so bad. Easy check in.

This is an older motel, but like our homes they have tried to keep up adding some very nice touches. The furniture, linens, towels and appliances are new and refreshed. Our room was clean, and having a bar sink, microwave and small refrigerator were nice. They have decks and firepits for the rooms. The property is located in a great... More
