This is a very nice and clean place. Awesome throw back to the 50's. Great people and very close to the waterfront. It had a normal small breakfast with fresh fruit, cereal, toast, and juice. Was very comfortable beds.

We weren't sure what to expect and a little unsure due to the low price. It ended up being a great place to stay. It was very quiet. Rooms were retro and fun. Beds were comfortable. Staff was very helpful in finding local places to explore. If I am ever in the area again, this place will be my first... More

We enjoyed our one night stay at this retro hotel. Cool furnishings that bring back lots of memories. Very quiet and clean. Nice location to walk along the lake and bridge. Breakfast area is small but it works well. Parking is convenient but there is no elevator.

From the bathroom's green tile to the lunchroom counter at breakfast to the aluminum Christmas tree in the lobby, this motel is indeed a blast from the past. The original room are of course small but are extremely clean. The front desk was very helpful with changing reservations and suggesting good restaurants.

Cute motel with 50's decorating and memorabilia. Very clean, nice location. Loved the breakfast diner, easy access to ice, fridge in our room, and friendly staff. Especially liked that the diner had fresh fruit available for our late night snack. All around nice experience. Thanks for the blast from the past!

Room was wonderful, bathroom sparkling clean, breakfast perfect, and staff friendly and helpful at every step. I especially appreciated the suggestions for dining out and help navigating the town. They even offered to store the cherries for the folks back home in their refrigerator overnight.

CLEANEST hotel room ever. Old,50s-60s retro, tiled bathrooms, no dirty grout. Fun style, great location, good price. Walked across bridge to Sonny's Italian food (terrific). Free parking. Pet friendly. Would stay here again.

My wife and I enjoyed the fifties ambiance and decor. The continental breakfast was hard-boiled eggs plus bagels, toast, cereal, and/or pastries. The bed was comfortable, the staff were friendly, and everything was super clean.
