“Nothing special”
Reviewed October 28, 2006

This motel seemed OK to me and we certainly didn't experience any of the problems harkwark did below. The rooms were clean and comfortable but nothing to write home about.

The only issue we did have was that when we arrived the owner had no record of our booking. This wasn't a problem as she had an empty room, but it would have been in a busier period so I'd suggest getting written confirmation if you book by phone as we did.

Reviewed March 12, 2006

March 2006, we stayed at The Viking Motel. Like, The Old Red Mill Inn down the road, this offers affordable accomodations. However, unlike the Old Red Mill Inn, The Viking lacks on cleanliness. The bathroom had cob-webs on the ceiling, dirt on the floor and mold growing everywhere! The bed had some long black strands of hair; I am a blond and my husband has short hair. This place has so much potential. It's a cute motel with a front courtyard and it was quiet while we were there for two nights. It's just a shame that it is so filthy. I was unable to see anyone in the office as we were leaving, (a day earlier, I should add) so I e-mailed them. I received no acknowledgement. It's too bad, really, because this can be easily corrected, if someone paid attention. I would say to anyone looking for affordable lodging to bypass The Viking and stay at The Old Red Mill Inn where the rooms are much smaller, but they are very very clean! I might add that the locals rolled their eyes and laughed when we told them where we were staying.
