Excellent place to stay with a friendly and helpful staff and views of the mountains. The room was quiet which is difficult to come by these days. The upstairs room had a balcony from which you could relax and enjoy the scenery.

I don't recall any pet fee for the motel, but if you get a room, you should avoid rooms near the road as there is a grade and the semis are down shifting for the grade which is not good for a light sleeper.
