The room was not very well cleaned with grime around the sink faucet and the carpet was sticky. There are no amenities in the room except a 1960.s TV. No fridge, no microwave and no coffee pot. If you are there on the weekend prepare to be blasted out by very loud music from the Tiki bar behind the motel. This brings in people whose sole purpose is to get drunk and rowdy.

Room Tip: find another place to stay

We stayed here 1 night, back on the road again in the morning. The one thing that bothered me was there was no deadbolt or chain lock on the door-just an old fashioned room key that a former occupant could have duplicated. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice and clean. Picnic tables out back by the river were enjoyable. Room was clean, no funky odors, but dated. We enjoyed our night, if we are back in the area, we will probably return here.

This 1950s motel is comfortable and run by a group of fine folks. A record snow hit while I was there and I wasn't able to get out of the parking lot for a couple of days. The Tiki Hut bar & restaurant here is a gathering place for locals as well as the temporary residents. They normally don't open for breakfast, but both mornings they made sure we were taken care of with pancakes, eggs, bacon, etc. at no charge. The power went out for a short while but because the gas heaters and stove weren't affected, there was really no inconvenience. This is an older place but because of the staff I will return. Waterfront in the mountains. The river is stocked with rainbow trout in the spring & summer.

Yes, it is an older "motor lodge type" place but no where else can you enjoy the beautiful mountain view, (ON the river with falls and rocks), drink low-to-moderately priced drinks and eat from a decent menu that has delicious, eclectic choices? Did I mention they LOVE animals?

We stayed over the New Year weekend and had a ball. The staff are always friendly and helpful. They try their very best to make everything perfect for your stay. I can't wait to come back for the spring/summer when everything is warm and green!

Thanks to you- Renee', Marcia, Dawn, Rena, Kristen, Charidy, Lynn and Emory - for making our time with you, "a time to remember!" We will see you before Memorial Day! Sorry if I missed your name, the whole staff rocked!

Room Tip: To get good wifi - stay in a room near the office.

If my review were based solely on the staff, it would be a 5. Unfortunately the facility is in dire need of attention...owners, you are aware of this; I cannot imagine the number of complaints your staff deal with while they care for and promote your business.

I'll start with the pros:

1. Location is great, right below Chimney Rock. Broad River is also within view.
2. It's in Lake Lure which is a lovely town
3. Staff were friendly and generous!
4. Tiki Bar has decent prices and yummy fried snacks (Renee = awesome!)
5. Pool was clean, though it was too cold to swim in January
6. HVAC unit was new
7. Hot water was plentiful
8. Sincerely, kind and attentive staff

1. Trying to be kind...antiquated/ugly decor, cheap repair jobs (ceiling was covered with soffit material) paper towels were crammed into ceiling corners to fill gaps from poor workmanship
2. No hangers
3. Outlets were inconveniently located, none by the beds and none close enough to a mirror (made it difficult to use a flat iron) and outlets were loose, plugs fall out easily
4. No stands for luggage
5. Thin walls, a bit noisy if you have loud neighbors
6. Obvious need for major overhaul everywhere (though there were workers building a new deck...this could be the beginning)
7. Some rooms have plug in space heaters
8. Complimentary coffee was icky-weak
9. Old mattresses wreak havoc on back and hips
10. Soap only, no conditioner, shampoo or lotion
11. Pillows...old
12. Big gaps between door and door frame, one can see daylight.

This place has so much potential
