A charming old fashion motel. Owners live on site. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice pool. Beautiful setting between mountains. Historic Civil War battle field just across the street. Excellent restaurant next to motel.

We rented this room after deciding to stay in the area longer than planned. We had been visiting the local parks (Johnson Shut Ins and Elephant Rock) and decided we wanted extra time to hike on Taum Sauk Mountain. The room was small, but very clean. It had a comfortable bed and a good television. Wifi was available, which was great because Verizon cell phone got either zero or intermittent service in the places we visited around the area. The bathroom had a kind of weird pocket door, but it worked well enough.

Spent the night here on the last summer weekend of 2019. As many others have said, it's very clean, comfortable, and the owners are extremely helpful. It is so easy to visit the state parks for Taum Sauk, Elephant Rock, and Johnson Shut-ins. I really enjoyed returning after a VERY full day and relaxing in the pristine salt-water pool. At night the pool was tastefully lit and a good spot for a nightcap. The room, #18, was a bit smaller than I expected, but had a picture window overlooking the pool and the Pilot Knob Mountain. If you are in the area I highly recommend staying here.

Will definitely stay here again! Visited on weekdays- quiet and not busy in the area. Very clean, nice beds, loved the pool, great price and great location! Tim & Cindy are the friendliest people! Loved walking across the street to the Battle of Pilot Knob, the Mountain View and central to all the places we wanted to visit - Elephant Rocks, Johnson Shut-Ins, Taum Sauk, Millstream Gardens and more! Best place I’ve stayed at in a long time! ❤️ Michelle R.
