“Eh, its a place to sleep”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

This is a small motel, with the emphasis on motel. It's very clean and well maintained. The rooms are small, probably about half the size of a modern american hotel room. Everything is very spartan. It's a step up from camping, and served our purpose. We stayed one Saturday night for a wedding we were attending in a nearby town. It was one of the least expensive places I could find in the area, I think we paid $85/night. The next step up in lodging in the area is in the $150-$200 range. This worked for us. Though I don't think I'd choose to stay for an extended period.

The room was very clean, comfortable and everything we needed for a reasonable price. We were visiting friends in the area and this motel was like our home base for the weekend. We had lots of room, kitchen, full size fridge, nice bathroom, comfortable beds, cable, and quiet. We loved Ev, the caretaker, who looked after us. We even cleanded some of the fish we caught in their fish cleaning station. Definately nothing fancy, but clean and a good value for us. We will be back.

Room Tip: We asked for an effiency room.with a big refrigerator and kitchen. It was more expensive, but well...

If your just looking for a bed for a night its ok. Stayed there recently and was less then thrilled about the place. Ive never seen a bathroom so small, the door wouldnt even open all the way without hitting the sink. Must have been made for little people. Dont expect to read the morning paper in there either. Sitting on the throne, my knees almost touched the wall in front of me. The shower head was around chin high. Small bathrooms are like 5x7, this was 4x6 or smaller. Got in at midnite one nite and the outside temp was 51 degrees, room temp said 64. Turned the thermostat up for heat and nothing happened. No WiFi either. Had a single cup coffee maker, but no cups.

Room Tip: Try for one in the web site photos. The one we had sure didnt look anything like those.
