Stayed here last night. $99 was rediculous. Totally overpriced. The operators are quite rude. No coffee machine. The air conditioner was on high all night and made no difference. Obviously not working properly. The roo. Was clean and the bed was comfortable but for the price I would not stay there again and I certainly do not recommend it.

I had reserved well in advance but had to change due to fires in eastern Washington. The change was accommodated without problem. This is an older motel in good condition. Plumbing in good order, which is often not the case. Check-in was easy and friendly. There are a few restaurants near but I purchased food from a good quality full-... More

We have been staying in the cottages every other summer for 12 years for up to a month at a time. The cottages are very cozy, solid, and so retro! It is an ideal place to stay for anyone: romantic couples, hikers as one has access to the trails up the Twisp River and the Mazama area, motorcycle riders, workers... More

This is an older property newly painted and very clean. It appears to be for sale and the night I stayed there appeared to be but one other occupied room. I did not try the sauna, but it advertises one. I found the wifi very slow, but useable with patience. I thought the road noise might be a problem, but... More

We stayed here recently with a group of friends. We were able to see all the different types of rooms- cabin, room with kitchenette and room with queen bed. Everyone was happy with their rooms and the price was very reasonable. Located close to different sno parks and walking distance to town.

Oct 4th we stayed one night in a kitchenette room prior to a four day backpack trip. We found it to be clean, quiet with a comfortable queen bed. We made a decision to return after the backpack. Unfortunately, our return experience marred any good opinions we previously had of this property. Driving in at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, Oct... More

My mother and I rented one of the little cabins on our way through town. Thr cabin was rustic but quaint and very clean. We were more than happy with our choice until the sun went down. Now I know that you can not blame the motel for the actions of your cabin neighbors however you can judge them on... More

My wife and I arrived in Twisp without a reservation and needed a reasonably priced place to stayand decided to give this place a try. I had heard that it was a little expensive for what it is but decided to give it a try anyway. The room was clean and in good repair. The bed was very comfortable and... More

Our stay in one of the little cabins was about you could expect for an older motel. Fairly clean. No microwave so no need to bring that microwave popcorn! Before we left for town made sure to lock and deadbolt the back door as well as front, and when returned the back door was unlocked. Nothing taken, so didn't see... More

Stayed there for two nights at the end of the season. It was clean, quiet, seemed safe, nothing to write home about but I had no problems with it at all. Plenty of hot water for shower in the AM (not sure why the other reviewer had a problem). The gal behind the front desk was friendly and helpful. WiFi... More
