    Lousy service

    The house was nothing like the pictures online on the outside which need to be updated on the site. I thought the lady was rude,and there was noone there when we got there and I had to call to get let in the house for about 30 minutes because we have verizon and I didnt have service. We was there several times beofre checkin and noone said anything about a code to let ourselves in. The place was very unorganized i thought and will never stay there. I am also a diabetic and they have no diet soda just water which I am not too crazy about, I am a soda drinker but need Diet not regular.. We left because I put in a complaint to Paypal which is who I purchased it with and they told us to leave since we wanted a refund,and next time I will check out the motel in person beofre I book anything. I was also told there was fishing which I could not even drive to because the roads was washed out from the last flood which I understand is mother natures fault however the flood happened a good while ago and should have been fixed since they was advertising fishing access.We also asked them about places to eat close and they told us the closets things to eat at supper time was in Farmington because everything would be closed in the town, and we found out aking around town that there are places around there to eat that they said nothing about because they was their competition.

    Pros: Nothing

    Cons: Everything

    Location: The town nearby is dead after 2 so you better get everything you want before then

    5/5 Excellent


    So clean, comfortable and welcoming! Never had a more pleasant stay in my life. Ruth was an excellent cook and very generous with her portions at breakfast. Breakfast was always different in some way, coffee was always hot and the view pleasant and(mostly)sunny. My favorite has to be the in room jacuzzi! Used it almost nightly and always slept well and awoke refreshed. I will definitely be back.


    Just OK

    Kind of boring, not much to do within walking distance, plenty of R&R .The Pool was overtaken by 3 families with 6-7 little screaming kids. They should have stayed in a motel.
