Reviewed 2 June 2012

Don't believe the photos and 2 prior glowing ratings as we did. The landscaping in photos is no longer there. The Patel family who runs this place were very nice, but the motel is in very dilapidated condition: The bright blue doors shown in photos are actually faded and oxidized. When entering our room we immediately noticed shabby old furniture with torn bedspread, partially vacuumed carpeting, dirty air conditioning vents loaded with dust and grime. The WORST was bathroom: chipped-out old tub/shower with MILDEWED plastic shower curtain. The beds were advertised as "furnished with fine linens" - that is false because the blanket was cheap polyester and the "linens" were thin, well-used cheap sheets. Did I mention the large tear in the old, thin bedspread?? Door to room is flimsy at best - this old motel is in disrepair and has seen better days.

The owner tried giving us another room, but after we investigated, we found that room in same, raunchy condition. We ended up staying at the Hampton Inn directly behind this motel.

Hubby and I stayed here 3 nights and it was worth every penny, comfy beds, pillows, friendly house keepers, close to restaraunts and shopping.
I think at one time this property was a show place, the court yard where the pool and water feature is is surrounded by gorgeous wrought iron fences, really nice land scaping. I loved walking around the site cos it was actually quite relaxing :-)

The internet worked fine, had coffee and muffins in the morning, no real breakfast, but that was fine.

The staff was friendly and welcoming.

Hub had to go to a clinic that was recommended by the nurse at Walgrens drug store, when his blood pressure was just a bit too high for her liking, she quickly made a call and got an early morning appointment, he was really pleased with how quickly it was set up. Mountain Home is def on our " to return to" list ...

Room Tip: ask to see the room they have assigned to you, also not all rooms have a fridge or microwave, ask fo...
