“Retro, not by design”
Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Poorly maintained - busted windows - torn curtains - threadbare towels - no coffee in room - weird smell in room. Nice service but need to refurbish

Reviewed September 6, 2010

We were delighted with our stay in this motel. The room was quiet and clean. Although there is no breakfast provided, kitchenette off the lobby provides guests with basic cooking facilities and a place to sit and eat. Our host went out of his way to make us welcome. Moreover, he cheerfully came to our assistance when we discovered that our digital camera was not receiving power. He brought a battery checker to our room, and we discovered that our brand new batteries were dead. The extra batteries I had brought with us had disappeared (found them much later under the car seat). This fine man gave us some new batteries. I am sure any other needs would have been met with the same cheerful attitude. We enjoyed making his acquaintance.

We had dinner at Antonio's, the best choice at the time in this small town. Note: the Land of the Yankee Fork Historic Area interpretation center, which we had hoped to visit, is operating on a constricted budget and open only on weekends (maybe Thurs- Fri too - better check).

This motel is right on the highway just on the outskirts of town.It has probably had its day but was still comfortable.The front desk person offered us a room with twin queen beds which suited us.She offered AAA discount without us asking which was refreshing.Room was a good size with typical layout.Shower in bath dripped a bit but not annoying enough to stop sleep.No breakfast but a kitchen was available to prepare your own if you are carrying supplies which was good.

  • Liked — Handy location
  • Disliked — None really
