We booked a room here to take advantage of some fresh snowfall. The rooms are not fancy, but they are clean (and have good water pressure!) I took an extra blanket and pillow and was glad I did. There is a gas station a half mile into town, and you can pick up the trail head less than a mile...

It is very clean, but out dated. In out first room cable wasn't working and neither was the heat. One call to desk and manager was at the door trying to fix cable and heat. Moved us to a different room right away. Our next room was a little nicer and bigger. I would stay here again. Nothing fancy but...

We arrived and checked into this Hotel (actually a Motel) about 6 PM. Several of the guests we sitting outside their room smoking. Opened the door to the room, which had a slight musty odor. The air conditioning was not on so I turned that on (it was a 5-6,000 BTU window unit installed through the wall). We then went...

Iam staying here for the night. Can't see anything wrong. Clean comfortable rooms. Decent channel line up. Nice manager. I have to say that the other reviews that are on here that were negative. I found them to be untrue. Decent motel. Good price. Id stay here again

I stayed at the hotel for the weekend and was happy to see that although the hotel was older, the room was clean and quiet. It is a typical family owned small town motel that is not meant to provide great luxury, just an honest, friendly stay!

The bathroom had a window but no curtain or screen, we had to fix the room window curtain and go buy clips to hold it closed. The 19...

This is the most disgusting, dirty and downright unsavory place I've ever attempted to stay at. From the filthy mildew riddled checkin area to the falling apart stairwell to the dirty, smelly, bug infested rooms...this place is just downright gross. I have no idea where the motel pictures listed here are from but I guarantee they are NOT from this...

By my title you may believe this will be a bad review. You are right if that is what you thought. The desk clerk seems to be confused anytime any question is asked. Does your motel have king beds? Do you have my reservation? When is check out? Why is my king size bed two double beds rather than the...

Booked on Hotels.com. The room was dark and dirty, Not at all what we signed up for. Signed up for a King bed. Manager stated they have NO KING BEDS. Went thru a lenghty hassle to get out of staying without being charged. Do Not Recommend it. Went elsewhere.
