This is our first post here on tripadvisor although we rely on reviews here all the time. We are so happy to have found Gorgeous View Motel through this website. To keep it short and simple, Gorgeous View exceeded our expectations. Check-in was simple-- we got an email with our room access code, and we just entered the code, and we were in business. There was a basketball net and ball set up for my boys to decompress after a long ride. Then they were so psyched to find drinks and kid-friendly snacks in the refrigerator.
The name speaks the truth: the view is gorgeous. The rooms are simple and practical, and the beds have the softest sheets ever. Really. We returned from dinner to find that Stephanie and Allen had set up a fire and S'MORES! fixings for us. This experience has inspired my six year old to want to go camping. We're embarrassed to say that we somehow failed to bring the fixings in for the night as requested, but we hope the owners know how much we appreciate their hospitality. The boys were already missing the hotel as we traveled on to Niagara Falls.
In sum: super clean, quiet, family-friendly and comfortable. We hope to get back there!
