I really enjoyed my stay at the King motor lodge room.
The facility was rustic with a modern touch. I loved the style, the warm heated bathroom floor, nice fireplace, and wonderful friendly/helpful staff. I would love to come back again and stay at a cabin.
It is worth the price I paid.
Only one negative - since it is very a quiet rural location, if the people staying in the next room are in the patio, you will hear the conversation very clearly at night. I kind of wished the couple next to my room just shut up or go back to their room when they criticized and chatted non-stop for about an hour and disturbed the tranquility I paid for to read in my room. The room was a little hot when I arrived late night and I had no choice but to have the patio/garden door open for ventilation for an hour or so. Yet after that I had to turn on the fireplace since it was pretty cool at night.
This probably won't apply to the cabins, but if privacy is a concern, this is something to consider.
