This motel is very outdated. Beds felt like a rock and room stunk. Indoor pool, but hot tub was closed for repairs and looked as if it has been closed for a while. This motel offers continental breakfast, but there was no variety of food, and the person replenishing the food did not do her job. Staff at the hotel... More

We checked in, went to check out our room and the scent of stale cigarette smoke hit me in the face so hard I almost lost my breath. We got moved to a different room and the same thing happened. Not only that but the whole place was dirty. The carpet has to be 30+ years old, thread bare in... More

We were in to visit Family and enjoy the Mountain State Forest Festival, we decided on this hotel because we wanted to save some money to have more to spend at the festival. The desk clerks were very rude the entire time we stayed there morning and evening. I very seriously doubt we Will be staying at that hotel again.

Betty, As you might imagine, the week of the Mountain State Forest Festival is our busiest of the year, which can lead to some hectic times in our lobby. That being said, it is inexcusable that you experienced a less than friendly atmosphere while staying with us. Customer interactions are very important to us, and we frequently get positive remarks... More

I have frequented this area for a number of years and found this particular residence to very worth while. Especialy due to the staff. The office manager Evlyn goes way out of her way to ensure a decent stay.

I have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting the Seneca Rocks region. The staff is friendly and helpful, housekeeping and maintenance are good, the rooms are clean and comfortable. This location puts you close to all of the fine attractions in this area and you cant beat the price. The continental breakfast is great for a quick bite... More

they were loud, rude and blocked the entrances to the office. They yelled at the men workers crossing the parking lot and they sounded like they were looking for business, They wake you up with their laughing and yelling and walking thru the cigarette smoke to get to the office is disgusting at best. This is the most inconsiderate workers... More

I was surprised to find that there was no coffee maker or hair dryer in the room. I don't know how many years it has been since I stayed in a hotel that did not have a hair dryer! Everyone has to go to the office for coffee! In bad weather, that could be quite a problem as it is... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and refreshing this motel was. My room came with a refrigerator and microwave. The staff were sweet, very helpful and knowledgeable about the history of the area. Thank you for a wonderful visit! I would highly recommend this motel for price and satisfaction!
