They really did a wonderful job renovating this motel. Our room was like brand new inside. Very clean and very comfortable. The sink area was outside the bathroom, made of granite and extremely clean, with attractive shelving. Our room was in the back,#47, with good view of a tall Ozark mountain and a cute little stream. The staff were polite and helpful...nice folks who really wanted us to feel comfortable, which we did. Full hot breakfast and good coffee. You should really give this place a try...

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quiet and don't look out to the street. A nice little Ozark creek.

When visiting the Arcadia Valley, you are very limited on motel choices. The Shepard Mountain Inn is a nice motel to consider.

The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

If you are expecting The Ritz, you're going to be disappointed. But if you are looking for a nice place to stay in Ironton, the Shepard Mountain Inn is a great choice.

We stayed at this motel this past weekend. It is well-located, on Highway 21.Staff were helpful and very friendly, Bed was pretty good but felt smaller than a Queen Size. Our room had microwave and a small refrigerator. Shower was pretty good. Liked having 2 sinks in the room, one in the bathroom and the other near the frig. We were in room 62,in the front, so parking was readily available. Grab and go breakfast was pretty good, no milk available. There were some negatives I need to point out. First, the location of the room out front led to noise issues. There were some people talking right outside our room Saturday night, and this was an issue. We did not feel comfortable asking them to move elsewhere, so we put up with it. Early in the morning, the birds were very active, as well. Second, the drapes were worn and would not close properly, leading to serious privacy issues. Luckily, we were able to use a band aid to solve this issue for the night. On the top of the toilet tank in the bathroom was a McDonalds plastic cup containing a toilet brush in it, with some brown flecks in the cup, Not a welcome sight! Finally, though the property reports being COVID-ready, the staff did not wear masks!
So, why 3 stars rather than less? Very convenient location, staff were very nice, and maybe we caught them on a bad day.

Shepherd Mountain Inn was such a fabulous stay. Doesn’t look much like much from the outside, but the rooms that we had, 56 and 57, were all brand-new looking, had good water pressure, good towels, good beds, it was just a really comfortable and nice stay.

Great staff. They had a hot breakfast from 8 to 10, but we were already on the road by then. It had a cool area in the back with a bench along a creek, looking towards a pretty mountain.

Seems like a family business and they welcome guests like family as well. Rooms are much nicer on the inside than what you'd expect from a typical motel. Breakfast was tasty as well. Overall an excellent experience!

Shepherd Mountain Inn was beyond our expectations. Spacious, clean, quiet room. We were on the back side with the creek out our door. Absolutely fabulous breakfast. Fresh and lots of variety. We hope to return and spend a couple nights so we can explore the area. One of our best overnight stays on a road trip in recent years.

Clearly it’s not a Hilton or Embassy Suites. I don’t say that as a negative, but one has to set their expectations accordingly. While a little dated, I found myself appreciating the quick access to our room, friendly staff, and good breakfast. Our room was well cleaned, and we were glad for the kitchenette for our family too. We felt welcome and we’d certainly return if we found ourselves in the area again!
