I am visiting Lewiston (my hometown) for a couple days and always wanted to stay at this motel. Two-unit bungalows are nice sized for singles, couples and some larger families. Family owned, this motel is kept in very good shape by caring owners. I'd recommend staying here when visiting Lewiston for jazz, art or other festivals and Artpark concerts. Note:... More

We've stayed at this motel a number of times. If you're looking for swanky, gleaming and modern with chandeliers, this is not for you. It's homey and welcoming, with everything you could need for a comfortable stay: a helpful and welcoming team--Vince and Chris; a full-service kitchen, TV, Wi-Fi, comfortable beds with extra bedding in case it gets cold, sparkling...

Great location across the road from the river on a dead end street. So no traffic whizzing by. Clean & accommodating. Short walk into town with two eateries across the road. Including the Silo which was featured on Man vs Food. All at a reasonable price.

We have stayed here for the past six years with friends during the Lewiston Jazz Fest weekend and we have never been disappointed. Owners Chris & Vince are part of the charm of this beautifully located, cabin style motel. Rooms are clean and nicely appointed.The treed front lawn outside your room is a wonderful place to sit, read a book,... More

We were looking for a getaway that was close to biking trails. The location is close to pubs and restaurants and in a quiet area. The motel is a bit dated but Vinnie was very accommodating and the price was right.

If you like clean motels this is the place for you!! We had an one room efficiency for our stay. The frig, stove and microwave were all new. The bed was comfy too.

A group of us (a family outing/couples) stayed here--such a cute place! The price is right. The owners are super nice. The location is great. The beds are a little hard, but that's pretty much the downside.

We stayed for a weekend here last summer, and it reminded me of camp cabins. The new owner seemed very committed and I hope he makes a go of it. Yes, it is a good price, however, the place really needs a lot of updating (tv etc). But then, the price would go up. That being said,it wasn't a flop-house.... More

If you need a really nice firm mattress this might not be for you. Small wood paneled rooms, but cozy and quite. No continental breakfast or in room coffee. Coffee promised in the office at 7am didn't happen at last check of 7:15am. A 15 minute drive to the Falls. Reasonable rate for the area. Downtown Lewiston is a neat... More

We found this motel through Trip Advisor and were pleased with the accomodations at a very reasonable price. The owners could not have been nicer. We stayed in one of the two kitchenette rooms and it was like a cabin in the mounains. The room was spacious with a full kitchen inluding a full size refridgerator, stove and any appliance... More
