On a spur of the moment trip, we went to Townsend. We did not have time to make a reservation so we played it by ear. The inn we usually stay was full so we went to Townsend Lodge and they had a vacancy. Our room was very clean, well furnished and very quiet. I was really impressed at how...

This motel was truly disgusting. Only when I entered the room after check-in did I find out how bad things were. There were spiders' cobwebs above the beds and in the corner above the wash-hand basin. I used a coat hanger to dispose of them. Then, on entering the bathroom, I noticed there was an earwig in the bathtub which...

I have stayed at this Motel on more than one trip. The last time I stayed, there were spiders in the room, spider webs in the corners. Housekeeping never cleaned the room in four days. The trash was changed once while I was there. I received no house keeping one day, the next day, towels were left on the unmade...

The price is pretty good... though I was surprised when I checked in and the manager couldn't remember the price she gave me when I reserved the room. Unless they have a weekday rate and a weekend rate, that doesn't make much sense. Even then, you should know those rates. The walls are VERY thin. You can hear everything that...

We stayed there 2 night and would have looked else where but it was a holiday weekend so we made the best of it. If you want a laid back hotel this is for you if you want clean rooms maybe not. When we pulled up a couple were sitting outside smoking and they wanted to know if we were...

The manager was very nice and helpful. This place is very old. It does have direct tv. The beds are comfortable, but the rooms are very small. A lot of people with motorcycles stay here, so it is very loud.
