They really did a wonderful job renovating this motel. Our room was like brand new inside. Very clean and very comfortable. The sink area was outside the bathroom, made of granite and extremely clean, with attractive shelving. Our room was in the back,#47, with good view of a tall Ozark mountain and a cute little stream. The staff were polite and helpful...nice folks who really wanted us to feel comfortable, which we did. Full hot breakfast and good coffee. You should really give this place a try...

All and all this is a very good motel. The owners do a good job of keeping the rooms upgraded with nice linens. The staff had to room clean. We were checked in professionally by a very nice man. He recently moved to the area to run the motel so had limited knowledge of the area when he was asked questions. That will come with time. The drawback for us was the ugly view of the restaurant outside our door. I have stayed here before and will stay again.

The property was well maintained and clean. The stage was nice and very informative. The hotel had WiFi, which was great considering our cellphones didn't get service. We recommend download Google maps before your trip. The are is beautiful.

In planning the weekend for my wife and I, I checked out the reviews for Shepherd Mountain Inn. Though they were highly complimentary, I was prepared that it might not live up to our hopes since none of the ones I read were recent. My surprise was that it was exactly as others described! These folks really do maintain their property which demonstrates true care for their patrons. My wife can't stay in cramped spaces but we were more than comfortable with the room's layout. The easychair was an inviting addition! The tub/shower had an unusual design which allowed extra roominess not found in typical rooms. It even provided a space to sit while showering! I can happily recommend your stay here for comfort and ease of access to all Arcadia Valley has to offer. Clean, well-lit, COLD fridge, more than ample furnishings. Its evident that accommodating their guests is their priority.
