We stayed here two nights this weekend while in the area floating with family. From the very beginning, I was very impressed with this little motel. The owner began by answering my many questions, then walked me through a very easy reservation and check-in process. The rooms were clean and quiet. We enjoyed being on the backside near the patio and grassy area. We ate outside, walked to the creek, and even played some football. They were also very responsive when our four teenage boys locked themselves out of the room 🤦🏼‍♀️. Highly recommended!

My wife, 3 boys, my parents, and I all stayed two nights at this motel for the Total Solar Eclipse on April 8. After previous accommodations completely fell through (don't get me started on that debacle), I had to scramble to find accommodations in the total solar eclipse path that are able to accommodate my family but also not jacking up their rates for the eclipse.

Scenic Rivers came through and then some! Heather is the owner and absolutely amazing to work with! She had two rooms next to each other for us and excellent rates!

For a small town motel, and I believe the only motel in town, this place is kept up very nicely! The rooms are on the small side so if you have a family of more than 4, it will feel a little crammed. But we managed.

The rooms are clean, mostly updated, but most importantly well maintained.

Let's just say Heather and her family do a tremendous job and put in a ton of hard work to keep this motel looking great.

Ellington is a nice little town and a good gateway to area rivers and springs and also the off-roading trails. I strongly recommend Scenic Rivers Motel as your accommodations!

Fantastic stay in the Scenic River Cabin behind the motel. Perfect setup for my family in this 2 bedroom cabin that overlooks the beautiful Logan creek. There is a fully stocked kitchen and a spacious living room. Outside there is a large picnic table and a barbecue grill. Very convenient if you have multiple families and a lot of people to seat. For large groups that require more rooms you can rent any room on the back side of the motel and be right across from the cabin. This was a great setup for my family and friends for the week.

We stayed here back in September and I am just now taking a moment to leave a much deserved review. The owner was incredibly helpful to work with one of their frequent guests who had already booked their stay in one of the few pet friendly rooms (with no pet) so that we could stay in that room with our pet instead. She did not have to go out of her way for us and yet she did. Once we arrived we found a nicely furnished CLEAN room. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again when in the area visiting family. I regret not taking photos. (Story of my life!)

This is a very nice motel. Fairly priced, clean room, and good location. The owner was friendly, knowledgeable about the town, and helpful. Unfortunately, a picnic table for guests was located right outside our door (the rooms are entered from the exterior, rather than from an interior hallway), and some very inconsiderate guests congregated there until about midnight, talking loudly. Between that and a loud air conditioning unit in the room, it was difficult to sleep.

This place is great! Looking at it from the outside it may not seem like a good hotel, but I have been very pleased! The workers are very kind and tenderhearted. There is a very strange “fast-food” place across the street. It is good but the people who work there are very, VERY loud and make you feel uncomfortable. But despite that, the hotel is absolutely amazing!!

Wonderful people at front desk; this small, older "roadside" style Motel is very pet friendly (huge plus) and people friendly (always nice to see and feel real Southern hospitality)! Room was very clean and quiet. Beds and bathroom are sized for an era when people tended to be smaller and more fit than during this era of excessive obesity ! Our shower had great water pressure and is one of the best showers we have experienced in many travels. There is a small and extremely slow "fast-food" style diner across the street. The location of this Scenic Rivers Motel makes it a great (and economical) place to stay as one is traveling from North to South through the beautiful Ozarks National Scenic Riverway. It is one of the few lodging accommodations in the area that have pet-friendly rooms !

I wasnt expecting much of this little roadside hotel but this was one of the cleanest rooms! I was impressed with the check in process and check out and the front desk was super nice. I would stay here again if we ever were back in the area!
