Room was nice and clean. Easy check in. They have big outside pool we enjoyed everything. Very good location. We do lots of fun there. Everything is on walking distance. Evans plunge is just near from the motel. My kids like this place. It was good experience more than we thought.

I can't understand all the positive reviews for this place. My room was dirty, the soap dispensers were empty in the shower and sink areas, the room was not serviced the 2 nights I stayed there, and the breakfast room was so tiny and crowded I gave up trying to get anything. Breakfast offerings were pretty limited: coffee, English muffins,... More

The cabin does not quite live up to description. It's clean but missing cups, coffee, sugar etc. The bunk beds are homemade out of 2x4's and as hard as a rock. The mattress is maybe 2" thick. I feel sorry for any child who has to sleep on it. The futon sinks in the middle so it really only sleeps... More

The cabins are quite charming and quiet. But attention must be paid to some details. The breakfast was of poor quality and the room is not large enough for the crush of families on their way to sightsee. The cabin refrigerator was not usable because the opening for it is out of square, thus the door jammed or could not... More

I complained to the manager and he said he would move us across the hall but those supposed rooms and hallway reeked of cigarettes as well. We went ahead and stayed in the room because other motels in... More

I looked at this site before booking, and there were a couple of bad reviews but I saw good as well so I booked it. Mistake. The only good note to the stay: the young man checking us in was helpful and pleasant. Then we opened the door to our room. My kids didn't even want to go in, the... More

Stayed 4 nights. Room was surface clean. Dirt in corners of bathroom. Bathtub needs repair. Continental breakfast "room" really needed cleaning. Coffee pots empty one day. Waffle mix dispenser empty 2 days. Peanut butter jars almost empty nothing long enough in room to get to bottom without getting it all over hands. Not much selection no fruit or yogurt. Overall...

2nd time here at the cabins, will stay again if back in the area. Simple but enjoyable for family. Clean, relaxing, easy checkin and parking. Great location. Kids love the bunkbeds. Easy to get to Evans plunge, which we all enjoy for a long morning of fun
