“Below the Comfort Level”
Reviewed 9 June 2011

I have been staying here few days per year since 2000 but I won’t be coming back till I see some improvements. This place was never a destination hotel but this road side joint went down below my acceptable/comfort level, unfortunately.
Inside the room, the furniture is in bad shape; a sunken bed, discolored drapery, couch, and bedcover. The room itself was clean; no sightings of bugs or trash of previous room occupants. That would’ve completed the picture of the shabby room if they were there. They offered free continental breakfast that includes some pastry, cereals, fruits, waffle and boiled eggs, fruits juice, coffee and tea. The waffle batter and the boiled eggs are chilled and stored but the refrigerators looked so dingy, I was scared if the food was safe to eat.
Their indoor swimming pool/Jacuzzi and the ice machine were all out of order.
A near by motel on Harrison Avenue was going through a complete remodeling currently; I think it’s time for King Oscar to do the same.

The motel looks dated but I was impressed by the spaciousness of the room. Huge, clean bathroom with plenty of towels. The complimentary breakfast had a lot of choices including fresh waffles. The pet fee is reasonable--only $25 for 2 dogs. There is a $75 deposit that is refunded upon checkout, if there is no damage. I would stay here again.

We usually stay at the Motel 6, but found this gem on the other side of the highway. Room fares are per bed, not per person, were $40 on the weekend for 1 bed and the room came with a fridge and micro. The heated indoor pool was a big plus and the Continental Breakfast had a huge assortment of choices including waffles and various breads to toast! Staff were very friendly and polite and housekeeping kept the rooms in excellent shape. The place is hard to find, though, so turn at the gas station and wind your way down past that first hotel, but it's well worth doing so.

We stayed here for one night using a RoomSaver coupon (which wasn't needed btw; they have drastically reduced their rates for the slow season). The staff on duty was friendly and informative, the room was spacious and clean. All in all a basic, no frills motel good for crashing at for the night. The free breakfast was nice (included make your own waffles, toast, cereal, oatmeal and beverages) and my son enjoyed the pool (hot tub is out of commission). There is free Internet but you have to borrow an ethernet cable (we didn't bother).
