We've been here twice in two years and can see that some needed updates are gradually being made.
The new addition of little heater stoves in some of the rooms (I think 1, 2, 11, and 12) is a really cute and functional thing to have in a hilltop alpine-style motel. Love them!
The beds are comfortable and the bedding clean and new, the room styles are a mix of charming old brick and newly painted walls with a few new accessories that differ room to room.
The fridges in the cabinet of all the rooms we've seen are really nice to have. The bathrooms have pocket doors, which are a bit awkward, but functional, and the bathrooms are old but clean and have heaters and nice hot water.
One thing that really bums me out about this place is the wifi accessibility. I can only reach the wifi while sitting inside the cafe, and since the hotel is up the hill a short ways, there's no option for internet there. Looking forward to hopefully having that available next time we're in town.
Don't miss the award-winning breakfast in the cafe; be sure to get a side of homemade brown toast. It's delicious. And the kids pancake option came out with a little smiley face made in the pancakes, which was a hit. :)
