This was our first trip to Santas Village in 8 years and the first time we stayed over at up there. The Evergreen is a classic old time road siode motel. The couple that run the place were great being across the street from Santas Village was a huge bonus. We went the day after Thanksgiving and took in Santas Village from 4:00pm till closing. Then just walked back to our room. The next morning we grabbed some toast, muffins , juice and coffe in the loby and just kept an eye out the window. When the line started to build before the park opened we just walked over and got in. There's a detail officer to get you accross the street although it was only real busy at closing. As for our room it was big and clean and everything had a fresh coat of paint. You can tell that they have been putting a lot of work into the place. The only small thing was the rug in the room was old...clean but old and I bet when we come back next year they will have swapped it out and they will get a five rating from us.

It was really nice meeting you and your family. It's always a treat to have someone from back home staying with us. We can catch up on what's going on in our old neighborhoods. Christmas time is a great time to go to Santa's Village. They reported in our local paper that this is going to be their best Christmas time season ever. Couldn't hurt that we had great weather the whole month. Thank you for your opions on our motel and you guessed right or we may have told you's, but we are going to start replacing the older rugs in the building. The rooms that you stood in are used seasonally and shut down after the park closes so they don't get the most use and thus the previous owners most likely didn't replace them, but we will in the spring. Will cringe the first time a drink is dumped on them, but that's why we own a Rug Doctor. So have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we'll see you next year.

This is our third year staying there and we have not been disappointed once. Janice is always very friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have. It is ideal when going to Santa's Village. The accomadations are simple but all that you need and there is coffee and breakfast. The kids love those little doughnuts! Very inexpensive too! Would not hesitate to recommend it to my friends.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of your stay with us. We enjoyed seeing you and your family again. Best part of our job is getting to talk to all the people that stay with us. Each season brings a different group and we get a chance to catch up on how the past year went. This snowmobile season we're going to have two years of catching up with the lack of snow last year. So have a safe and healthy new year and we'll see you and your family soon.

We stayed here last weekend (the 8th) on our way through Jefferson. The couple that own the place are SO nice and friendly :) The pool is really nice but that night it was freezing! I did get in with my son until the lightening lol. The room was comfortable, quiet, and VERY clean. I can't wait to stay here again next year when we bring our son to Santa's Village!!

We keep saying it over and over, but we sincerely really do appreciate and thank you for taking the time to post a review of our motel. The swimming pool is my favorite job. I never had a swimming pool so I took the course at the board of health to be certified and it really helped me keep it crystal clear. After labor day, the sun sets earlier, and the temps at night can cool down, We look forward to seeing you and your family again, come up earlier in the season and enjoy our pool.

We decided to go to Santa's Village at last minute and was going to stay at another place but it was all booked up, and luckily this place had vacancy. On the phone, the owner was very nice.
The place is literally right across the Santa's Village where it is easier to just walk there. We bought the ticket there and even though it is notation discounted price, the owner was nice to let us know that we can go there until closing then return the next day with the same ticket which I did not know about. The room is simple, but clean. There were four of us, me And my husband, my 3 year old daughter, and 2 month old baby. Still enough room after setting up pack and play that we brought. We stayed in a queen bedroom. I liked the small refrigerator that they had. Had flat screen tv with DVD player and vcr player. My daughter went to the office about 10 times to get different movies that they let you barrow for free. We swam oneday, but it is not heated, and it is just too cold to swim after getting back at 5 pm when you are up in the mountains. There is a free miniature golf that my husband and daughter played, small playground also. The breakfast in the morning is exactly what they described on their website, coffee, and muffins, and bagels, nothing fancy.
We enjoyed our stay with our kids. Definitely would stay there again when we take our kids to Santa'Village again.

We're glad you liked your stay at our motel. We were lucky that you stood with us, because you took the time to review us. When we bought the motel it only had 6 satilite stations and when it rained there was none, so we bought lots of movies, 700+ . Now we've go 70 plus cable stations to watch and if there's nothing that you like your welcome to just pick out a movie or two or three. Again thank you for taking the time and we look forward to seeing your family again.

I stayed here in August with My daughter and her 4 children. I was told when I made the reservation that I would have to have 2 rooms because of the number of people. We were given adjoining rooms close to the pool and it worked out great. We girls had one room and the boys the other. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was great, we played mini-golf, the kids loved the pool. We walked to Santa's Village, came back to the room for lunch and to get our bathing suits, and returned to Santa's village for the rest of the day. Talk about convenient! I have to say this was one of the best vacations I have taken, and would reccomend it to anyone with kids. (Or grandkids)

We would like to thank you for taking the time to post your review of our motel. We can't say enough how much we appreciate it. We've had thousands of families that have stayed with us and only a very small percentage will take the time to review our efforts. Sorry for the delay on our response, been playing catch up cutting and splitting our wood for the winter. That was quite a compliment on best vacations ever. We realy try hard to accomplish that goal ever day for all of our guests that stay with us. Lot's of families do the same thing that you do. They will take a break and walk back to their room for lunch and go back to the park afterwards. So again thank you for taking the time, it is very much appreciated.

Rude, obnoxious owners. Asked to refund our money before we even stayed. Don't deserve anyone's business! Owner asked us to come out for a head count. Is this the military or a motel.If you have three children, you are not allowed to stay in a double room with your six month old in a pack and play. And they advertise as being "family oriented."

As always, we appreciate the time people take to post a review. This however is not a review but a comment from someone who never stood here. Read the post...Asked to leave before we stood there. Why would we ask someone to leave before they stood here and give them their money back. Were in the business of renting rooms not leaving them empty. You see what this person is not telling you is they had read a previous review that we adhear to the state fire code on the amount of people we can rent a room too. So they had 1 person register their room and 2 car loads of people showed up once they got their key. We didn't make them leave. If the information was correct at the time this person registered they could have stayed here. They still could have stayed here if the extra people stood somewhere else, but they didn't want too.
You see they were going to have the adults sleep in the two beds and the kids on the floor, we call that camping. We gave them the fire chief of our town's number, but they didn't care. They just didn't want to pay. We get many families that have 3 children that stay in our motel. If they are little kids that can fit in a bed ,have a pack n play or use a cot, then we comply with the law. We had guests that stood in our motel this past weekend that read this comment without our response and were very appreciative of the fact that we follow our state law and wouldn't put a large amount of people in an adjacent room to theirs. Read all of our reviews from people that actually stayed here. Every morning when people check out they tell us on how much they enjoyed their stay and that we will see them next year. This comment only verifies that we would rather have an empty room then break our state firecode and subject an adjacent room.

I booked this motel at the last minute (after reading reviews on Trip Advisor) and was lucky to get in (because of a last minute cancellation). What a nice surprise. The owner was very friendly from the moment I made the reservation to when we were leaving. The rooms were very clean - even the bathroom! The only issue we had were the black flies which we were told are common in August. A fly swatter is provided in each room. (Trust me it is a minimal problem that was quickly taken care of) There were lots of movies for the kids to rent, a clean pool, a small swingset and even mini golf. Best part though it was right across from Santa's Village. Would definitely stay here again.

It is very nice of you to let us know how you liked your stay. You were not lucky to stay here, we were. We get a few thousand families every year that stay at our motel and you took the time to post a review. That makes us the lucky ones. :0) We look forward to seeing you again, and thank you for taking the time, it was very much appreciated !!!
