Disappointed

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Continental breakfast was okay, waffles only warm thing but better then just cereal.
Cons: Make sure renters have a parking place. D├ęcor was made of old deckboards, yuck the fish and bugs that have come in contact with those headboards..yuck
Location: good location, fairly close to everything
The motel looks sketchy, not very nice. They have fixed it up but it's still not what I would call nice. I would not want to stay there again. With the cost I expected a 4 star motel. Pool was outside and too cold to swim in, paid $750 for 3 nights and didn't even get a parking place. I recommend you stay at Fillenworths or AmericInn.

Oh Shoot! We do want you to enjoy your stay and are so sorry that you didn't. Since our purchase on June 17, we plan on improving and adding to our motel. But, we realize everyone may not like our style of decorating and design. Thank you for your business and we hope the rest of your summer is awesome! Kindly, Misty

Great hotel!!

Posted Jul 31, 2014
Pros: Perfect family hotel with plenty to do in grounds commons. (bikes, horse shoes, fire pits/grills w/wood and charcoal there, hoolahops and pool)
Cons: The rooms had minimal lighting and if you didn't have the blinds open or at night they were kinda dark.
Location: Not far from the lake and within walking distance to shopping, foods, and docks.)
Upon arrival staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was ready on time and very clean. The grounds was kept up and the beds were VERY comfortable. Would stay there again.

Convenient location to all activities

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Location, room, pool, "deck", carpet ball, campfire
Cons: Pedals put on the fun surreys! Protein added to breakfast (hard-boiled eggs).
Location: Swim, boat, plays, concerts, eat, eat, eat
A motel is usually not my choice of stay. However, this was a good choice. Clean room, lots of room, close parking, and very friendly staff.

Retro motel

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: Park right in front of your room. Comfortable bed. Nice TV.
Cons: Clean cobwebs from window. Towel rack in the bathroom would be helpful. Needs TV station locator guide in room. I asked for one, wrong data given
Location: Excellent
Once the shock of "what have I booked?" wore off I decided the Vintage Motel would meet our needs. The motel has a great green space with pool and new gazebo which would be great for young families. Wi-fi didn't reach to our room, but I could go up to the lobby area and get it. Knob missing off of our AC unit so we couldn't adjust the temp. Very nice housekeeper said she would look and see if she could find a replacement, but she apparently could not. The motel is under brand new management and in the process of refurbishing. I'm sure the place will be awesome in a year or so. Not sure if I will book again in the future, but I would say we got our money's worth. Very nice bathroom - even though the door did not completely shut. I always appreciate the complimentary breakfast and this was very good.

OH we do appreciate your comments! I can't tell you how many people say, "Oh, Misty, we drove up and saw a motel and went, Yikes...but we are SOOOOOO glad we found Vintage BLOCK! Cause it Rocks!" Serious...I like to describe it as a unique, creative, slice of Okoboji. A Modern Motel! Kristi and I can't wait to get in our rooms and hit the weaknesses that you describe! We know we need too and we will. We are so committed to our property and look forward to getting bigger and better every year!! Thank you so much for your business. I do hope we see you again and see if we can't get one or two more stars out of you. I am going to give it my best shot!! Have an awesome rest of summer! Take good care! Kindly, Misty and the Entire VB TEAM! YEAH!!
