The owners are as warm and welcoming as they get, along with two well-trained but super friendly dogs. There is a restaurant in the building with the office and the motel is behind that up the hill a short drive. We had great expectations for this place and were spending several days.
Once we got to our room, things went a bit downhill. Just inside the entry door to the hallway, there was a couch that I'm sure our son's fraternity left outside too long ten years ago. Yuck. The carpeting is cheap industrial with stains everywhere. The furniture probably cost a total of $200 and the bed had to be a donation (soft and uncomfortable). One of our windows was broken and the toilet sounded like a fire alarm every time it was flushed. The "full breakfast" was rubbery scrambled eggs, lukewarm pancakes and nice crisp bacon. If you stay here, don't bother eating here. There are great options in town.
"Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?".
