Bad experience

They billed me for my room even though I already paid through Expedia. It took two hours to straighten it out. The clerk was on his cell phone on a personal call while he was checking me out.

Pros: Location was great but there are several others in the area.
Cons: Cleanliness and condition of the hotel. Everything seemed old.
Location: Several Falls and hiking trails. Restaurants and even a WalMart right down the road.
Breakfast was some muffins and bagels. Totally unimpressive. We found a bug in our room which disgusted all of us. Still hoping it was the only one in there! The AC was on high and froze the two people sleeping on the bed next to it but the air didn't seem to move throughout the room and the two people in the other bed were hot all night - weird.

Everything was clean and the woman who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The bed was firm but in good condition. Breakfast was disappointing. Waffles were the only fresh choice. There was a loaf of white bread, cereal, pkg oatmeal, tiny packaged cinnamon rolls and yogurt.

This motel was perfect for a group of ladies attending the World's Longest Yard Sale. It was clean and quiet plus inexpensive so that we could spend our money shopping.

Worth the money

For the price I paid it was worth it. Disappointed the pool was closed in June. The tv was so old you couldn't flip thru the channels, but had to type each channel number.
