Stopped in here on a motorcycle trip, for no special reason. The staff (owner) was extremely friendly and helpful with dinner suggestions. My room was large, clean, comfortably set up and I had a good sleep, except when the AC momentarily cut on. Breakfast was basic - cereal, toast, frozen waffles - but usable. I went down to clean the...

We came through on a long trip, and they were the friendliest, most genuine couple. Gave us a great rate on our rooms. We had left a coffee cup there, and when we went back, they had grabbed it AND a money clip we had dropped(we hadn't realized) and brought it out to us. We will definitely be going back!

The management doesn't care at all about their guests. I was even a repeat guest but I will NEVER stay here again. I needed to use the internet to locate the nearest car dealership who would know how to repair a serious safety issue with my vehicle. I was upset that the internet didn't work. The evening I checked in,...

RE: Internet. Guest complained about internet in eve. System was checked and was running fine. Guest was asked to call desk if there were further problems. At no point was any other problem with the room mentioned. All rooms have telephones with free local calls and two local phone directories. A Subaru dealer is down the block, information front desk...

Fantastic motel with extremely courteous staff and hosts. Clean comfortable rooms with hosts that go far beyond what is standard at the big name inns. Business takes me to many places and never have I been made to feel more comfortable and appreciated. Next time in Cranbrook I will not go anywhere else.

This hotel is charming from the outside but dated on the inside. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast not worth eating. The management needs to replace the thread bare, dingy white sheets and towels. They also needs to use bleach in their laundry process and hire people who know how to clean. I would NOT stay here again.

In response, we have fired all cleaning staff (2 single mothers and 1 senior lost their jobs because of this review). We forward your review to Inland Allcare the folks who supply the KNIGHT auto distribution system for laundry (and the detergent, bleach and softener). We replace linens every spring before the start of busy tourist season. For a posh...

Our second time at this one and the rooms have recently been redone. It's on the main street but was surprisingly quiet. Money was probably saved by installing a very narrow bathtub! Bedding was fresh and luxurious. Towels were a bit skimpy - some new, some should have been trashed. Continental breakfast was less than impressive. We enjoy supporting privately...

We stopped here on our way through. The price was right, and the gentleman at the front desk was very friendly. The bed was very comfortable. It could use some up grading, but we were very comfortable. The outside is very cute with lots of potted flowers and outside white lights. We left before breakfast so I can't comment on...

Wanted something basic and reasonable for a night passing through, and tripadvisor showed the Model A had good rates. Pulled in about 7pm. We got a queen size ground level room for $85 plus taxes. The room was very clean. Bed was very, very comfortable! Compared to some of the chain names we've stayed in, we both slept like rocks....
