It was a cold rainy night and highway 88 had been closed and was not passable. We had no reservation and turned up at about 9pm. The host was charming, helpful and pleasant.
The room... was a motel room. You get what you pay for and we did not pay a lot. Everything worked, sort of. One of lights had a sign on explaining that the switch had to be tried several times and the light tapped to get the starter working in cold weather...
The bed was basic. The sheets were clean but being used to 4+ star hotels... they were a little shabby and harsh. But this was an emergency so I for one was just pleased to get out of the cold and get some sleep.
Its not a place I would choose to return to, but if ever I am stranded in the area again, I would be pleased to see the place.
