We spent 6 nights happy nights here. My number 1 criteria for a room is clean, and number 2 is a comfortable bed. The Scenic View room we occupied was perfectly clean and we both slept well, so criteria met! Add the nice view, charming decor, plenty of clean towels, quiet,

Thank you so much for the kind words. I hope you will keep us in mind the next time you are in our neck of the woods. I hope that you made it back to Texas with no problems. Looked like some bad weather your way right after you left. Maybe you were able to dodge it. Thanks again and have a great day! Jim & Peggy

This was our third visit. The owners are very attentive & the nicest couple you will ever meet. The room was clean & decorated in an appropriate black bear theme. Plenty of hot water & towels. It feels like home & we can't wait to visit again!

My favorite pastime is whitewater kayaking, and my favorite river is the Nantahala in western North Carolina. My paddling buddy and best friend and I usually hit this river 5 or more times a year. We would usually stay in NOC’s base camp, a no frills, plywood cabin with no

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are glad to see you guys made it home safe. I told Peggy that I feel bad charging you anything because it seems that every time that you are here, I find something for you to work on or help with! We are truly blessed to have made new friends in you guys and look forward for that next time! Our prayers are with you both!

Stayed her previously and loved it but not so much this time. Beds were broken down and uncomfortable. Shower was not good and the shower head leaked. Next time we are in the area, won’t be staying here.

I am so sorry that your stay this last time was not as enjoyable as your previous stay. I wish that you had brought the issues to our attention or even made mention of them so that we could, at the least , have had the opportunity to resolve the situation. We take all of our guests concerns seriously and try our best to take care of any complaint or need that they may have. We are a very small , independent owned motel and when we receive a negative review, it seems that other potential travelers tend to focus on one negative review and totally overlook the dozens of very good reviews. We are not a 5 star hotel. We are one of a handful of retro motels that have survived and will continue to do so . Our quaint motel was built in 1958 and has been tastefully and constantly upgraded. We will from time to time have a shower that will leak , but we can take care of that immediately. Everyone has their own preference for either a soft or a hard bed. We are always happy to let the people check the room first before deciding. If they don't like the mattress firmness, we surely have a room they will like. I only hope that others that read this understand our concern and for the sake of other hotel or motel owners ,that you will address your complaints to them first so they too, may have the chance to make it right before they receive a bad review.

Is the motel pet accommodating ?
We didn't bring our dog, but another couple had theirs while we were staying there. Call Jim and Peggy and ask. They're really nice people.

"Rooms furthest from the road have the best mountain view."
"they are all identical with the exception of a room that has 3 beds but we did not see it as it was rented"
"Beautiful setting, but bring your own towels, maybe your own sheets"
"We stayed in room # 7 but i imagine that any room will be just fine."
