Something new. Electronic Combination Locks on doors. Pretty fancy except at night when you can't see the #'s. Like reading brail. 1st Day room was cleaned. Comfy bed. Toilet for really small people, almost sitting on the floor. Hell getting off if you're a large person. Good brand of Coffee 1st day. You the Traveler, Absolutely don't Count after that. Paying for full service all days, Motel has your Visa. LOL. After the fact, No daily Service, No Coffee, no straightening up room, clean linens, No warning. No Ice Machine, no code for WiFi if there was any? No nothing. Originally I was given a veterans discount 10 or 15%. I asked for 50% for 2nd nite, LOL

This is an older property that is in top condition, but $132 for a single (including taxes and fees) was $40 too much. Wireless internet didn't work--the desk said it was because of smoke from forest fires.

My friend found this place to stay so we could see the balloon launch in the morning. 3 of us and her dog slept well. The kitchen was well equipped. We wish they had a wine opener too. The bathroom shower section leaked water but not a lot. The heater was good enough. The place is quiet and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a good stay.

Based on other reviews, and even though one person stated "too rustic", I thought, well, online images make it seem ok. All furnishing seemed to be thrift store rejects, nothing matched, our full size refrigerator was in the living room. There was a full kitchen but pots and pans were all scratched up and we had to bring our own paper towels and cleaning up supplies. The bath towels were very thin (not threadbare, just the lowest quality). Fortunately we also brought our own shampoo and soap because we were only given 1 hotel size shampoo and conditioner for our 5 day stay! Also, there was no hair dryer and I had to call the other hotel (Abbey) to get one. Heaters worked well, and good thing as the daily high temperature last week was 29.

I’ve stayed here a few times and it was great! But new owners took over and have 2 BIG complaints! The first is don’t reserve a cabin online!!! I did that and it put me in what it said was the last cabin available and of course it was the most expensive and worst one that did not match the pictures at all!! So the first night we noticed we were the only one so we ended up moving the next night to one that was picture correct and much more comfortable. SO CALL THE OFFICE! The second complaint is the next day we were gone for awhile and I noticed that they had entered my cabin by a towel I had thrown on the floor and it was gone but I let it by and didn’t say anything because I was moving to the cabin that I requested and I thought that was the reason but while we were out the next day they came in AGAIN! All they did was pick up 3 kitchen towels! No cleaning!! WHY?? I stay in a lot of motels and unless I request it they don’t enter until we are gone, I felt that my privacy was invaded!! I don’t know if they went through my stuff and if I was a real dick I could have said a large sum of money missing! SO IF YOU STAY THERE BEWARE! Otherwise the cabins are nice except #127 the one they put me in first.
