Tip from the Downsville Motel staff to enjoy dinner at the Old Schoolhouse Inn. Great meal and service. Ordered NY strip steak, medium rare. Steak cooked to perfection, with side order of twice baked potato. Fried calamari appetizer was outstanding. This was our 36th wedding...More

Family dinner for Mother's Day. Prime Rib was tasteless. Maybe because of Mother's Day they were busy and my dish was off. Will try again and hopefully it was just a one time thing.

Passing through the area. Certainly a unique place. Not what you'd expect in such a tiny town. Our overall impression of the place is to rate it a 5, although its not perfect. The schoolhouse and the building with the "hotel" rooms next door have...More
