“Needs to be shut down!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Let me put it this way, my 8 yr old said she never wants to go back there! The rooms are dirty, the pool is ok, but the hot tub looks like people urinated in it. The old part of the building connected to the restaurant smells of cigarette smoke and I am not sure what else but it made me gag as I walked to the restaurant. The doors in the old building have large gaps. The newer part needs either new carpet or the carpet cleaned. The walls need to be patched and painted and the beds need to be replaced. The front desk people were nice as long as you could find them.

Room Tip: Go to another place.

Went to the lounge after a good long days worth of riding. Went to use the bathroom only to find the floor flooded and turd right in the middle of the floor.!!! NO JOKE.!!!!! This was after I had dinner there. Stayed for a few drinks and 2 hours later, it was still there!!!!!!! Where's the health department when you need them!!!!!!

Just wonder how they maintain the rest of the place and the food area!!

I have stayed at this hotel at least three weekends per year for four years running. I stayed at several others around town and now stay here exclusively. I always enjoy the hospitality and appreciate the reasonable rates. There aren't many options of this caliber in Newberry...only two others that I can think of. One is always terribly overpriced and the other is inconveniently located and often closed when I come up in mid-May. Zellar's has a good mix of cost vs convenience vs comfort.

Room Tip: Ask to see the rooms first. Each has different amenities such as refrigerator or microwave or furni...

This hotel is not what we expected for the price. The room was dingy and old. The toilet seat looked like it had been around forever....it was stained and discolored. The lighting was very dim....probably so you couldn't see how dirty it truly was. There were several smashed bugs on the walls. We were very disappointed with the whole situation. I guess this would be okay for hunters or fishermen, but we like a very clean room and it was not up to our standards.

We stayed one night at Zellar's. It was a comfortable and clean motel. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and had no complaints. This motel is acceptable if you are looking for a clean, quiet place to stay and aren't looking for any frills.

While the first person we encountered was polite and the building looks new, there is a lot that has been neglected.

The bedding is old, stains on the pillows and saggy mattresses. The room still smells like cigarette smoke, from when smoking was allowed. We were going to try out the hot tub, both the pool and hot tub were cloudy and the hot tub was not hot. When we told the gentleman at the front desk, all he said was that the maintenance man was coming tomorrow.

The front desk person was very helpful in acquiring us a wine key and the breakfast that was included was filling.

The "in room" wifi only works in the lobby.

The vale compared to the price paid does not add up. I would not recommend staying here.
