Cute small family owned motel right on the river. Each room has a small outdoor area with a charcoal grill. Rooms are clean and have a small fridge and micro. Would stay again.

Hidden Gem
Definitely a hidden little gem. I typically stay in larger, name brand hotels, but decided to focus on location for this trip. Being able to see other people’s reviews has given me confidence to choose hotels that I would normally pass right by. I’m so glad we did for this one. The hotel is tiny, maybe 10 rooms. Most of them right along the river. The rooms themselves are actually quite large. In addition to the 2 double beds, we had room for a double air mattress so that my kids could each have their own bed. The river is right behind the hotel. They have small tables and chairs setup on the river with small grills available. The owners were there and helped answer a question. This hotel might not impress your friends on social media like the Ritz Carlton, but a great little place to stay.
