Don’t be fooled by the pictures.... We arrived at 7:30pm August 6th. The gentleman who checked us in was very nice. We booked a cabin and upon entering the cabin we were welcomed b y a musty smell. It was very dark and many lights did not work. We were just using this cabin to sleep before continuing on with our drive so though we can handle anything for a night. We went to dinner and arrived back to the cabin to sleep. Now noticing the dirty and ripped bedding, broken furniture, etc. There was cigarette smoke coming into our room from the adjoining cabin. We called and complained to the front desk. Upon waking from an awful night sleep we saw how filthy the cabin really was. Stained walls, stained light shades, curtains,etc. We notified the front desk and they offered us a $50 credit, however a full refund should be given for the filth and condition of this cabin which we paid $230 plus tax for. Unacceptable! It’s a shame because the bones of the cabin are adorable.

We stayed in room 45 on the hill. It was beyond adorable w/ a wood burning fireplace, wing back chair that was a recliner, kitchenette with fridge/stove/sink, a microwave and canopy bed. The bed was super comfortable and the room was totally adequate for a weekend getaway. Super convenient location too. Yes, it’s a bit dated but it just adds to the overall experience. 🌲🌲

Don’t stay there. It’s partially dirty, it stinks with Raid and mold. Bath tube, toilet, and sink were very clean, but people who clean this hotel don’t pay attention to walls at all. Air conditioner is noisy. Nasty place, and a rip-off. Good reviews are cooked.

I'm not sure what the main photo on internet searches is representing this motel but it's not where I stayed. The motel is on a very busy road and it looks like you would expect a one story highway motel to look. I want to say the staff were nice enough. But other than that this was by far the worst accommodation experience I've ever had. The neighbors next to us had dogs in the room. My gut told me to ask for another room, unfortunately I did not listen to my gut. The couple went out to a bar and left the dogs in the room. Said dogs barked until they got back in which I was hoping to actually get to sleep at that point. Nope, that's when the fighting began, for THREE HOURS! Until the man left the hotel at 6:30 am we were able to finally sleep for 1.5 hours until his return. Was not sure whether or not to call the police unfortunately should have. Also, the staff did let us know in the morning there was a number we could have called to contact them. We were set to stay another night which we did since it was already charged to the card, and that was much quieter.

My wife and I stayed here for an App State football game. The online reviews gave this place too much credit. There are so many issues with this place I don’t know where to start. The rooms have almost no lighting and limited outlets. After we had been there a while, we found a discolored part of the ceiling. Then we found it to be actively leaking! We called the office and moved us to another room. The rug also had holes in it. The new room, not much better. Poor lighting. The jacuzzi had a rusty drain and there was no way we were using it. The peephole in the door was covered with a playing card, no idea what that’s about! We found a wadded up used washcloth behind the bathroom door. The closet bi-fold doors were broken as well This motel seems to have long term renters like construction workers. This place is ok if you need a room for a night or in a pinch or hiding from the law. It’s very dated and in desperate need to updating and renovation.
