“Friendly People, but Place Not Kept Up Well”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

I was glad to meet the friendly owners of this motel. We paid for two separate but adjoining rooms to accommodate two adults, a small child, and two dogs. Each of our two rooms had issues: in one, the shower did not work (it was a trickle of water, with no exaggeration), and in the other, the shower worked but the bathroom light was not functional. This combination of non-functioning elements prevented us from taking showers in the evening while our child slept. The rooms were cleaned reasonably well (we found trash behind one of the night tables, but otherwise all was fine).

There are not many motels or hotels that allow dogs to stay with their responsible owners, and we were grateful that this one did. With better attention to whether everything functions, this motel would be worth recommending--I like family-run places such as this.

Our room was clean and quiet. The hotel owners live on-site and they were very helpful.
The shower could use improvement, but overall a pleasant experience.

A great value for your money. Rooms were clean, service was excellent, and pool was wonderful. We did not have kids with us, but we would return w them. Had a playscape in back as well.

We stayed here for 2 nights, 3 adults 1 infant in a suite. The room had an overhang for the car and a covered porch. Came in handy since it was pouring raining when we arrived. Too cold to swim in the pool but we would loved to have used the pool, it looked clean and inviting. My wife says, "the hotel was nothing spectacular, it was homey but not new". Carpets were dirty or damaged we couldn't tell. Continental breakfast was more than adequate, the lemon pound cake was divine. The location was walking distance to a supermarket and walmart which is great since there was a ready to use full kitchen. A few miles to the downtown, battlefield monument, chocolate barn and Robert Frost house. The pillows were like paper which we expected, lucky we brought our own from home anyway. Small bathroom with shower and tub. Not gross but a good bleach scrubbing would remove what appeared to be mold. There is a cleaning staff and I feel they do try to make it nice, I appreciated that. The wifi worked okay. We got online pretty easy and speed was about adequate. This motel is a mom and pop place probably been around since the 70's based upon the wallpaper and furniture.
Look, I can say it's no Ritz Carlton or Trump Towers but for the price and location it did it's job. I would recommend this motel if you don't have hangups about the place being older and all that goes with an older facility.

We stayed here in October 2009, Did not like it at all, guy at the front desk was very nasty. We had a cottage and it was falling apart, there were holes in the walls, the lights didn't work and the beds were very uncomfortable. we left a day early
