“Would stay here again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Hubby and I were in town 2 nights for a wedding. The owner and his wife were polite and helpful. We had a pleasant stay. The room, bed and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Loved that the bed was firm and not mushy like some motels. We got a good night sleep. Coffee and a bite to eat in the morning at the office. It's a convenient location. It's an older motel but it is well maintained and the parking lot is well lit. Some might be bothered by the noise because it is on the main road but we didn't seem to notice it when in the room. Other guests were friendly. Has wifi and mini fridge. Hope to come up in the fall to do the wineries and would stay here again. Good value, not overpriced like the 'big' hotel down the road.

We were not expecting a whole lot from this place but we got great value and a pleasant stay. Our room was neat, clean, and comfortable. Excellent shower. Good "expanded continental" breakfast. We found the manager helpful and accommodating. There was some road noise but we weren't bothered by it. Recommended for a simple, clean place to stop on a trip.

Reserved room over phone, quoted one rate, when we arrived charged more, no explanation, owner/desk clerk very curt. When we turned down the bedspread it had nasty stains on it. Towels also stained. When we complained to the owner/desk clerk, no apology, again very curt. Did replace the bedspread but no discount offered. We have stayed here before and originally we were treated very nice but the last two times the owner/desk clerk was not hospitable at all. We won't be going back and do not recommend this place anymore.

Good location for a wine tour base but the room was pretty dirty. Like disgustingly dirty. Uncovered stains on the box spring. Brown stains on the cover blanket and a dead bug in the lampshade. Make sure if you stay here you get drunk enough on your tasting to not care.

Stayed January 2013, traveled with friends

Nice hotel for limited amount in the area. Older hotel but it was clean and neat. Very nice landscaping. Staff was very friendly and available for our late arrival. Unfortunately on a busy road and not within walking distance to town.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a king bed if that's what you need.

We were looking for a cheap one night option in the area. This hotel was pretty much what we expected. Service was good, rooms were clean and breakfast was included. Our only complaint would be the musty smell in the rooms and the less then scenic highway location.
