This is a very nice older motel, our room was freshly painted, for you snobs that think your somebody go to the Holiday Inn and pay $268.00 a night somewhere else. Our summer rate was $65.00 plus tax. Doesn't get better than this while traveling on a budget. Semper Fi....

An older property...fairly clean room...maintained but old. In room coffee...fairly good TV selection. OK place for passing thru for one night. WI-FI mostly could not connect.....bed pleasantly comfortable. Stayed the night while driving the Selkirk Loop

We had booked the hot tub room and asked if it was working or not and we had called the day before to confirm the hot tub was working and were told all is fine. Get there the next day, check in, and go to our room and find the hot tub is closed. We questioned them and they said... More

One of the stops during our 7 day cycling trip, I had booked this motel after reading some of the reviews. Sorry, but my first reaction was 'what a dive'. The room was dirty and outdated, especially the bathroom. The box spring mattress was badly stained and the room smelled like stale cigarettes, even though it was a non-smoking room.... More

This hotel is fine for the area; we weren't expecting the Waldorf as we just needed somewhere to stay along the way to Montana. The fire pit and grassy area looked fun if you were staying with a number of people. The staff at check in were very pleasant. I was very afraid of what appeared to be a very... More

Great grounds and the room was clean and stocked with towels, coffee, shampoo, conditioner. I've been in more expensive places and not got all that!.. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area.. Grocery store across the street, almost, open 24 hours. Older building, but so what. The door locks work, the sheets were clean and the bed was... More

On a positive note, the grounds and staff are nice. We love staying in small, locally owned motels and don't mind older styling but our room was really run down, especially the bathroom. There were bugs in the light fixtures, the t.v. barely worked, although a non-smoking room, it smelled smokey likely because other guests and staff were smoking outside... More

We stayed at this motel in 2014 and came back in 2015. It's an older motel and a little worn. However, rooms are large and seem clean. There is a huge spa room - hot tub only but a very large one. Has a nice big green area with a firepit, huge tubs of flowers and a picnic table. Budget... More

This is a typical old school motel. So if you don't have a problem with that, you're ok. The place is quite old and that shows on the outside. But the rooms were nice and clean and everything works. The airconditioning could do with an update because it had to work very hard to keep it cool. When we arrived... More

The motel staff were friendly. The Motel itself had seen better days. The bathroom was updated but in our room that was about it. Being that it was 100 degrees when we checked in we had the window air conditioner on hi(surprised it worked). It was load but could fall asleep until it changed from cooling to fan, a load... More

“Rooms far enough off the main road to be quiet”

“If wifi is very important to your visit, keep looking, spotty connections at best. Rooms probably haven't seen an upgrade since the 70s, so again, it's very "basic".”

“Not sure, depends on if one has a pet and what inclusions/ameneties they want. The wooden, heated jaccuzzi suite they show on the website is NOT private but open to all motel guests.”
