The One Horse Motel is a throwback to the golden age of motor travel. Pack up the kids and hit the road! Before Holiday Inns, and Howard Johnson’s appeared on the travel scene, this is the kind of lodging you stayed at. A small property with a minimum number of cement block walled rooms, the One Horse is a delightful surprise! How can a motel this small be so nice? Owners Mike & Holly do a wonderful job running their operation. Nicely decorated and very clean full featured units -with fridge, microwave, flat panel TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioner and ceiling fan. I dare you not to smile.
The many dining & gift shop options are just a short walk away. Leave the car where it is!
I mentioned the attractively painted block walls only to hint at the quiet they provide. And quiet it is! A small laundry room is just steps away for your use, along with a hotel/motel first for me -A take all you want ice machine! No take a small bucket back to your room here -Fill the cooler -We don't care! I love it. I did it. Twice.
A very basic but nice breakfast area is set up each morning. Coffee, Tea, Oatmeal, packaged snacks only. Still well done though. It's just fun. Also nearby is a free hose/bucket setup for washing your car, if you decide not to use the pay wash across the street. The ONLY negative item during our two nights was the less than stellar TV reception. Perhaps due to the location of the town itself. No big deal.
I spoke with Mike upon checkout for a few minutes, and he may be the happiest guy I've ever met.
In a small town with THREE Best Westerns, The One Horse Motel is worth checking out.
