The motel sits on a very picturesque lot with a large grassy area leading down to the creek. It was a great place to take the dogs out for walks, plus they do not charge a pet fee when you book. Like all motels, we are responsible if there is damage to the property due to pet action.
The place is nice and quiet. Although we had to drive a little way off the main highway to get there, it was worth it. We could hardly here the traffic from the highway in the rooms, which was nice to not be constantly woken up by big trucks passing by!
The owners are very nice and friendly, and try to help in everyway possible. However, they are not around till early evening most days because they both have full-time jobs. But their on-site manager is available for anything we need. We never lacked for anything while we stayed there.
The rooms vary in sizes and therefore prices. Each with it's own style. Smaller rooms are pretty basic but reasonably priced at $55 per night. We stayed in the larger room, which looked like a home. It was big and spacious, great for the dogs. It had a main living area with a full-sized kitchenette to one side (full fridge, stove, microwave, sink and all dishes). There is a separate bedroom with a lovely pillow-top queen bed. We had the best night's sleep ever! And a full-sized bathroom with tub/shower and nice fluffy towels. The rooms are clean and well-maintained, although a little work is needed in some places. There are hundreds of satellite tv channels, from the regular networks to Showcase, Discovery and Spice. Plus wi-fi is available upon request for emailing.
The owners informed us that they had only been there a year and a half, but had worked really hard renovating it. It shows! The place looks a lot better than it did a 3 years ago when we last drove through. Overall, this is a very nice place to stay if you want a home away from home.
