Thank you for your question regarding our rates. We do sometimes change our rates when a guest arrives, depending upon which special discount they are expecting on arrival. We often have different Specials during the year but they have certain conditions that must be met such as: 3rd night free coupon is Valid on Cash Sales only or Direct Booking 2 Night Special is not valid for online reservations.
We have 3 types of motel units with different rates and on occasion, if we quote all those rates, a quest will confuse the
rates quoted, expecting the lower rate for a higher priced unit on arrival. We are sorry when this happens but the rate is never more than $20.00 difference between unit types as we do not over-inflate our prices just because they include a kitchen, separate bedroom and balconies with lake & mountain views.
