After returning from the coast of Oregon with my mother we were looking for a place to spend the night. We had a long drive and basically came upon the forest motel by accident. After checking in, we walked into our "room" and it was dirty, smelly and overall disgusting. The bathroom / shower area smelled of mold, the bed sheets were stained and smelled bad. I was so exhausted from the driving that I just grinned and beared it. Of course I pulled the sheets off of the beds and slept in my sweats. To top it off I phoned my wife to see what the internet rate was for the room and was surprised to hear it was $25.00 less than what the manager had charged me. This hotel looks as though it may have been great in its day.. My guess is around the time of "Robinhood" This hotel was the hottest thing in town. Now its time for it to go to the hotel heaven in the sky.. I definately would look for something different if I was you.
