They have done a great job updating the rooms and Lobby. They have a little more to do. One of the best things is it's across the street from the best restaurant in town (JT Basque) The night/ morning Clark was not the friendless. The continental breakfast was something to avoid. Oatmeal or fruit parfait and fresh coffee

I booked a room for a business trip and had a good stay. I had a room with two queens and non-smoking. It was clean and well appointed. I needed a clothes iron and the iron with a board was brought to the room in a timely manner. It had the usual amenities plus had good desk service 24/7. I'd...

Unassuming from the front, but once you walk into the lobby you notice what a nice job updating they did. The rooms are very pleasant, clean, comfortable beds with a modern rustic feel. Great location - you can walk to many tasty restaurants. Complimentary light breakfast of oatmeal and yogurt/fruit parfaits. Pet friendly. Very nice for a little town.

Very nice room upstairs our first night but my 11 year old Rottwieller had trouble climbing the steps. We asked to change and the staff went out of their way to help us. Both rooms were extremely comfortable and the beds were great. I am very happy with that stay and recommend this place to anyone.

We have stayed at dog friendly hotels and were very disappointed. Alas here is one that takes pride in cleanliness. Thank goodness , we will be able to come back here with our dog...

I don't know about other rooms but our room, #214 was very nice. It was a large 2 Queen beds, nice comfy chair, table with 2 chairs, micro-wave and small fridge. Nicely decorated. Large bathroom area. Nice flat screen TV and other little touches. The staff at check-in was very pleasant and helpful when we needed him. We did not...

After reading the reviews we were very hesitant to stay here. Upon arrival the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was very clean and we appreciated the upgraded floors. Saturday morning breakfast was a disappointment, but we were told that this was the first time they did a serve yourself. Sunday morning breakfast was literally a direct result of...

The cost of the Motel was high, over $169.00 per night and the rooms were awful. We did not notice the Shower being broken until the morning after since we arrived late and when we went to complain they told us there was nothing they could do.
