The closed and trashed pool should have been enough of a warning.the lobby was dark and dingy ,second warning. But I was riding a motorcycle,it was raining and I was tired.the gentleman behind the glass enclosed counter was friendly enough, and the room was only $65,so I took it. I asked about breakfast in the morning, all I really need... More

The only complaint I have is when there is traffic it's a little difficult to get out on the road. BUT, this place is great! The customer service is totally awesome, and for the prices of the rooms they are clean and comfortable.

This was our second stay, we hoped that in the past year some improvements would have been made, but pool still closed and everything seems the same. However the staff is helpful, rooms old but clean, and price is fair. We enjoy our stays. Very motorcycle friendly. 6 in our group, 4bikes.

My room (#115) was a gem. A corner room, it had a spacious deck with umbrella tables just outside. It was a kitchenette: small microwave, fridge (with separate freezer) set amidst kitchen cabinets and a sink. Not only that, but the closet had a door, not the usual clothes rack hanging near the sink. Well-lit with numerous lamps, a small... More

We stayed here about 4 years ago. It's an old motel but it was clean. It was family owned and everyone was friendly. It is now owned by a different family who are also nice, however the rooms are in very serious need of help! The beds are very uncomfortable, mattress pads too big and sheets too small. There is...

... and there is a sign saying "Alarm clocks available upon request", you've got a problem. This motel looked like it may have been a really fine place one time, but it needs a lot of work. From the rusted pole sign, the broken neon sign, the swimming pool with no water (it was 94 that day), and the rubbish... More

The chap at the front desk was really helpful and friendly, but that the only positive thing I can say about this motel. The room was very tired and everything was well used and worn out. It was not dirty, but just plain very well used and needed replacement. There were flies in the room. The breakfast was the worst... More

Honest, homelike, clean. WiFi food not work at all. Pool was empty because of the town sewage backup twice so they are waiting for it to be redone. :( But very unique in a very good way! Do not recall any free breakfast. But for $50 I wasn't too upset.

Traveling through the mountains we were looking for a one night stay that was reasonable. and accepted dogs too. They had a room available on the side and was very welcoming to us and our pet. It was clean and no odors! Close to many things.

Front desk staff were friendly upon arrival. The room appeared to have been fairly recently updated - fresh paint, newish furniture and bathroom fixtures - but, for a non-smoking room it smelled fairly smoky which really put us off. The room was tiny and hard for two people to manouever around one another. Wi-Fi in our room was incredibly slow.... More
