The room was not very well cleaned with grime around the sink faucet and the carpet was sticky. There are no amenities in the room except a 1960.s TV. No fridge, no microwave and no coffee pot. If you are there on the weekend prepare to be blasted out by very loud music from the Tiki bar behind the motel.... More

We stayed here 1 night, back on the road again in the morning. The one thing that bothered me was there was no deadbolt or chain lock on the door-just an old fashioned room key that a former occupant could have duplicated. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice and clean. Picnic tables out back by the river... More

This 1950s motel is comfortable and run by a group of fine folks. A record snow hit while I was there and I wasn't able to get out of the parking lot for a couple of days. The Tiki Hut bar & restaurant here is a gathering place for locals as well as the temporary residents. They normally don't open... More

Yes, it is an older "motor lodge type" place but no where else can you enjoy the beautiful mountain view, (ON the river with falls and rocks), drink low-to-moderately priced drinks and eat from a decent menu that has delicious, eclectic choices? Did I mention they LOVE animals? We stayed over the New Year weekend and had a ball. The... More

If my review were based solely on the staff, it would be a 5. Unfortunately the facility is in dire need of attention...owners, you are aware of this; I cannot imagine the number of complaints your staff deal with while they care for and promote your business. I'll start with the pros: 1. Location is great, right below Chimney Rock.... More

We love this little quiet place. Yes it's old, a vintage motor lodge. Updated, not restored. Doesn't matter, you know what you're getting. Prices are reasonable, staff is great - very accommodating. Small outdoor pool is always clean and inviting. The riverside view is relaxing and the tiki bar is an experience we love repeating.

I never take the trouble to write reviews, however this place was such a joke, I think others should be fore warned. The first thing I see when I pull up to check in is someone who is clearly a meth head waiting for her drug dealer sitting front and center- (should have been my first clue..) the website advertised...

Spent a great couple days here. Older hotel, but our room was clean. Tiki bar has karaoke a lot, with a few local regulars that were pretty good. Cornhole, GREAT river access for wading and swimming. Really nice pool, and good pricing. Right between Lake Lure and scenic Chimney Rock.

We stayed at this hotel for the second time over the Fourth of July weekend holiday. As before, the experience was excellent. The staff is friendly and attentive, the amenities, while not luxurious, were fine. The pool is enjoyable and well-maintained, The food at the tiki bar is excellent, and the views are magnificent. We will be returning next month... More
