Very nice rooms for our needs. Could use some TLC but overall very nice. Being on the river makes a great view as well as fishing out your back door. Great restaurant right across the street, close to park with a boardwalk along the river.

The view of the lake is spectacular, unless you are in the upper level end room you will not see this unless outside. We had a river view room that other travellers were raving about and after being there am wondering what the raving was about. You are at the mouth of the river as it enters the lake and... More

The Motel is very nice and clean well laid out . The rooms were very clean with all the amenities necessary fro an over night stay. However I thought it was a little over priced at $100 a night per couple with no continental Breakfast.

Would recommend a Double Queen room. It was spacious and adequate for our needs. Not a 5 star but it was comfy. We had a smaller room last year with 1 bed and it was really small. Owners are friendly and nice and the 17 restaurant is across the street! :) The property is nice, right on the lake and... More

No doubt about it, this place is solid 2-Star. Nothing special or fancy, and certainly not a resort. But the place was clean, and the bed was comfortable. I had "River View" and the water spilling over the rocks made an amazing sound, drowning out any chance of hearing highway noise. The place had to warm up a bit when... More

Checked in at 7pm checked out ten minutes later. There had been no heat on in the room. It was so cold in the room we could not take off our boots or jackets. Saying the rooms were dated in an understatement. It was awful!!!!! Flea bag hotel. Wish I would of thought to take a picture.... Got our money... More

We found the room compact and clean, albeit a bit timeworn. The management and staff were very helpful and kind at every request. We needed a place to stay for a fairly lengthy stop and this place fit the bill. It's extremely conveniently located in a beautiful setting. We would stay there again.

Room was small and personally did not have a clean vibe to it. Nothing to write home about! For what you got it was definitely overpriced. Would not stay again. As others have mentioned the upside was 17 Restaurant across the street. Great food and staff. Made the stay easier to handle.

Would not stay here again - it was expensive (I stayed at good quality chain hotels for less on the same trip), the walls and blinds were filthy, and it just felt grimy. There was laminate on the floors instead of carpet, which was nice - I can't imagine how dirty the carpet would have been! There were other motels... More
