This place is a great example of why Tripadvisor may bring back the "roadside motel"! So often we pass by the "little guy" in favor of a chain simply because we think we know what we can expect from the chain while the "little guy" is (was) such an unknown. But, because I read the reviews here I felt very confident checking in to the Fort Hill Motel and things were even better than I expected after reading all those great reviews! From what I can tell, all of the facilities have been updated (the work is quality, not just "lipstick on a pig"). Everything was clean, clean, clean (but without smelling like stinky cleaning products that just create new icky smells) and everything worked as it should (fridge, a/c, TV, lights, etc.). I would have liked more water pressure at the shower head, but that is the only complaint I can think of! Having some restaurants within walking distance would have been nice, but we brought back pizza and we sat in the gazebo to eat dinner with a view that couldn't be matched by any restaurant! We'd like to go back with the kid because we think she'd really like the pool, tetherball, horseshoes, etc. that make this roadside motel a very nice destination (or "home base") in itself.
