Nice motel, about 5 minutes to Belleayre. Very cool backyard area with a lounge area, too bad it was too cold to use on this trip. Room is nice with small kitchenette. Fixtures a little dated but ok. Beds have memory foam topper.

We ended up staying an extra day. Looks like a great place to stay in the summer. Each room has back door that leads out to picnic area. Very comfortable, well equipped (full kitchen) uniquely decorated rooms. Caretaker was very nice with contactless check in.

Name should be -- NO STAR MOTEL
With the 9.2 rating we had high expectations. But, the first thing we noticed was the storm door screen was held on by duck tape. When my wife went to fix her bed for the evening, she discovered a large blood stain on the cover - disgusting!!! My bed (mattress) was very squeaky. In the morning I went to use their hair dryer and the end of it was all distorted from heat - unusable, safety hazard. The tub looked dirty but it may have been just all worn spots in the enamel - neither one of us took a shower. Word work was scratched and heater dented. Overall, the place is old and dated and needs a lot of attention. On arrival, the motel manager was pleasant. Feel we should get a refund from for this one-night stay.

I'd give it 100% just a couple of minor issues
Property is neat, clean, well kept and good furnishings. Nice backyard area behind the rooms with firepit and some games. Only issues are the hot water was either very cold or scalding hot and it was tough to keep the temperature constant- probably due to others taking the shower and not enough volume. Also the smoke detector was inoperative.
