This motel is the only real motel and was in good condition and clean... the other one that I found was like an old motor court. I have read some of the other reviews and some of the negatives were a bit harsh... Over all I believe they have tried to give you a memorable experience at Eagles Nest. The bears (see the Pics) are adorable and ad a bit of the wild woods flavor with a bit of cuteness. The rooms are nicely decorated, however there are only two things a Hotel/Motel should be rated on. 1... the Bed! The bed was not hard but a little firm. If I might suggest you might go to a pillow top mattress. Memory foam can make all the difference. You can replace them on a schedule. As you go to replace them I would change to Pillow tops.
The second is the only other thing that you go to a Hotel for. 2... the Bath! The bath at EN was different in that it had a corner shower rather than a tub. The Shower a bit bigger than the corner one I had at home. So that is a good thing. The other Item in the room was the Toilet. These Toilets are some of the cheapest that you can buy and sit about 12 inches high off the floor. These Toilets should be replaces with Toilets that at a minimum sit 14 to 15 inches high or are ADA compliant. Like wise it wouldn't hurt to have a grab bar on the adjacent wall... So my recommendation is that they should be on a schedule for replacement a couple of time. Overall though I think the EN was satisfactory but I'm sure you would like to have it be rated outstanding.
One thing I noticed at a hotel we had stayed out on the Oregon Coast last week was a miniature Kerig machine in every room... They would give you up to two coffee cup at the front desk upon request. In the winter I'm sure that Coffee in every room would be appreciated and help to set you apart.
