We stayed here last weekend for an impromptu trip to the mountains. While we spent most of our day out and about, this hotel was convenient and our room was clean, and everything worked great. Cold A/C and a hot shower, clean sheets, that's all you need! Charming appearance and the staff was very helpful with local information!

I had a great weekend with my German Shepherd at this property last weekend! The rate was reasonable and my room was next to an open area. Additionally, they have free wifi, a great selection of cable channels and are close to everywhere. I do recommend this motel! Now, if you're looking for the extras that some motels offer, you...

Horrible dirty place. Owners rude and shifty. Room smelled really nasty sweet cloying smell unable to determine where it was coming from. Opened the fridge and it smelled rotten. Lights were broken, wall had stains dropped down it. Window in bathroom had sign on not to open and a sharp piece of wood wedging it closed. Party of 5 in... More

I stayed at this motel again, and am very surprised at some of the ratings! My room was clean, the fridge was cold, and the place was clean! No, this motel will not provide hair dryers, shavers, etc., but what it does provide is a clean, nice room at a good price! I will definitely stay there again! I have... More

Worst place I have ever stayed. Staff not friendly. We had requested extra pillows when making the reservation and never got them. Inside one nightstand we found an unused condom. In the other we found a broken bong. No amenities at all. No hair dryer (not even a plug in the bathroom), no shampoo. Just 2 tiny bars of soap.... More

We stayed there last night. We wanted to stay in Asheville but everyone we called was full. I think we just checked too late. We wanted to see the sunset on Mt Mitchell and we had no cell service so we couldn't book a room early. Anyway, we found the Nakon Motel in the next town on Google. They had... More

I have stayed at this motel twice in the last two months, and have found it to be a very clean, neat place to stay at an affordable price. There is some noise from traffic that passes by the motel, but that's unavoidable. The owner and his wife are very polite and go out of their way to make your... More

Please call me asap at 480-241-8241 and please leave a vm if I cannot answer your call and please leave your number on your vm so that I may call you back. The motel managers refuse to give me the owner's number.
