We rented a boat from the marina for the day. It was definetly old and beat up, but it wasn't expensive and it got us up and down the river. Great location and friendly service. Going to do it again before the summer is over.

The motel sits on a hill with a gorgeous view of the big river. The marina is fantastic and it's filled with boaters, people fishing and having fun. The Blue Heron Restaurant is very good. I'd say it's a cross between Red Lobster and Olive Garden. Great fish specials and salads. Full bar too with excellent outside covered patio overlooking... More

This motel is all my son and I needed for our one night stay. We fished two days and the small motel away from the crowds, nice marina and restaurant on site worked great. The rooms were clean and freshly painted but showing their age. Set up for fishermen to sleep but not what I would say is great bring... More

We stayed here 4 for days for fishing, not an ideal place to take a lady but it that's not really the market they're shooting for here..made my husband extremely happy to be able to fish and spend time together alone, but not many lodging choices nearby. You take what you can get. Pros: on the water, nice restaurant with... More

We had a particularly bad experience at this motel. Granted, not everyone who stays here will find it this bad. They have a loyal following of fisherman who come to the Marina to boat and compete. It is the only motel in the county. That being said, we found the room to be rather damp and musty smelling when we... More
