A large group of friends rented out many rooms at this motel in August for a wedding we were all attending. The owner, his family, and the motel were great!
We didn't want to spend a lot of money on weekend accommodation and so the value attracted us. But I think we were all surprised by the overall quality of service at the motel. The owner and his family made sure to attend to any needs in the room (ours was missing a shower curtain) and did so in a timely way. The rooms were very clean (throughout our stay) but basic. If you want fancy with extras then you shouldn't stay in a motel. If you are looking for a basic room, for a short stay (with or without a family) with good customer service, pick the Viking. We will be coming back for future visits to the city.
We only wish that they would bring the pool back!
