The motel appears to have been completely renovated, nice new carpet, new wall coverings, bathroom was acceptable. However, every time we walked into the room it smelled of old beer and cigarettes. The a/c worked, but you could see outdoors around the installation. The breakfast was really nice and the people were very pleasant. I'm not crazy about that many dogs in the food prep and eating area, but it was very much "family style" The price was right for one night, but I definitely wouldn't want to vacation here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Northern Family Motel was built in 1958 with newer building in 1985. We are the third family owner with 15 years of ownership under our belt. We are a very clean and quaint motel with an added touch of family and friendly environment. Our market is dominated by being a college town and we are fully committed to providing a personal reach for those parents who have students dwelling in our area. We take care of who takes care of us. We are always connecting with parents to remind them of important dates that may need to book, we have cooked home cook meals for their son or daughter that are missing home, we have picked up medication for their under the weather child, we have helped them get a trust worthy mechanic, babysat while they attend a school function, dog walked, and we even get to know you well enough that your cocktail or preferred beverage may await your next arrival. We may be an older style establishment but with that said we have the great old school mentality of being overly welcoming after all "You will arrive as strangers and leave as friends" is our motto dear to heart. Don't let the "motel" cliche persuade you to look else where .... we are the place to make your stay relaxing. Try us out!! As always book direct to help save commissions paid to the 3rd parties. Your hosts and owners, Eric/Stephanie Matott ... more less
