I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and was somewhat concerned about staying at this motel. Check in was easy and staff very friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Some finishing touches still required, but I truly enjoyed my stay. After a long day of hiking it was all I needed to enjoy a relaxing evening.

My wife and I stayed here, along with another couple, in rooms 7 & 8, the 2nd weekend in September. Check-in was fine and the rooms are nice. What we noticed right away was the attitude. They have a fire pit out back but expect their guests to split the wood for it. They also have 3 small barbecues but... More

We stayed in room 2. The room is pretty small. There are no windows (unless you count the door and screen door). There are two small twin beds and 2 camping chairs.

This is a recently refurbished motel with clean, pleasant rooms. I was surprised that there was no housekeeping during the day, but it wasn't a big deal.
