This motel is the best in Alma. The owners have done a wonderful job in updating it and keeping it in good order. The rooms are small but comfortable and very clean. We appreciated having a refrigerator and microwave in the room. We will definitely stay there again.

Have stayed many times at the Triangle Motel and have been highly pleased on every occasion. Conveniently located, clean, economical, too many amenities to list, ... what more can ask for when traveling? We will be staying again, I'm sure, depending on vacancy.

Motel is truly a treasure. Owners on site and the rooms are clean and updated. Close to Alma 3 minutes. Owners and staff go out of their way to make sure your visit is pleasant and enjoyable. I am a frequent customer.

My husband & I decided a few years ago that we would seek out small, non-chain motels when we travel. We were tired of paying top dollar for dirty rooms in motels that were well appointed but poorly managed. We wanted to support the owner managed small motel. The Triangle Motel was the most pleasant surprise we have had. I...

The front of the motel has a little park that is peaceful. Motel room was very clean. Spotless really. Rooms are adequate for two, but the bathroom is very small. The back of the motel has a busy road and convenience store. It is not that quiet. We didn't run the AC. That probably would have helped. The person in...

Reviewed 22 August 2015

it was clean although the rooms are very small. There can be a lot of road noise.I would hardly call it "scenic" but the owners take pride in this property. The price is right for an one night visit. The water had a very strong sulfur smell. Bring your own!

MichellePs, Owner at Triangle Motel, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback. We certainly don't strive to be just average. Yes, there is some road noise, which we have no control over. Our water is well water, which is softened and can be different if you are unfamiliar with it. As far as "scenic", we don't claim to be scenic, we have a well maintained yard that...

We stayed here for a weekend getaway and it was a wonderful overall experience.

Small room but complete with updated carpet, linens, and bathroom, and includes mini-fridge and microwave. They even trust you with real glass water glasses!

“Owner is very nice. I haven't stayed in an accommodation like this since I was little & traveling with my family. Feels like a throw back to the '60's. Clean, People quiet. Expressway noisy. Owner is extremely nice and accommodating. But for her, after seing it, I would have tried to change my reservation to stay elsewhere. ”
