“Quaint but stinky”
Reviewed September 13, 2005

Real nice quiet setting in an older fashioned motor lodge, secure parking area right in front of your door. Rooms were nicely appointed, however, the room we had stunk of cigarette smoke, like an old tavern. Clean the drapes and carpet people! Has the owner of this joint ever stepped into one of those rooms?? Particularly #69??

We had room 38, a very large, comfortable room overlooking the river. Quiet , spacious--like a '50's-'60's motel in the best sense. It is not Belagio's (where we stayed two nights ago), but I think we like it more.
Free internet, phone etc for a reasonable price. The interior rooms may not be as nice(we did not check), but this one was great. And, you can walk across the street to the park that runs along the river.
Motel is right by the falls, so very lovely. The other (many) motels/hotels in town seem to be cookie-cutter standard with no such access (except for the Red Lion). We will stay here an extra day just because of the room.
