Friendly, helpful staff. Quiet and clean rooms. Beautiful grounds. The beds were incredibly comfortable, which was welcome after a long day of driving. Enjoyed our stay with them and if in the area would definitely stay again.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2009

My husband, myself and daughter and 2 dogs stayed there for a soccer tournament and the prices were very reasonable. The outside is very pretty with the landscaping and the gazebo was very nice. The staff was helpful in finding us restaurants where we could eat with the dogs. Coffee was great in the morning, but the bagels were stale. The room was pretty small, but the shower was sooo tiny and every time we knocked into the wall of the shower trying to bathe, the door popped open! The room was very clean, but the mattress was very hard and my husbands back very sore the next morning. I would have like more towels for the 3 of us, but my fault I didn't ask. The doggy area was kind of far from our room, but the other dog owners were very friendly when I took our pets out there.

Classic Motel at the south end of town. Excellent rates for very clean reliable rooms. the owners are very friendly and have put a lot of effort into central gardens and communal BBQ areas. Way beyond what you'd expect.

We called from another motel, in which were getting a refund from, and they gave us a room right away at a discounted price, more than the AAA discount. It was very clean, sweet smelling, beautiful grounds and nice looking lobby. My only complaint is that there did not seem to be any air conditioning in the room; only a heater which we found out by just turning it on. They had lots of towels and toiletries available in the room.
Wireless internet worked great!
We would definitely stay again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2009

Maybe not the fanciest place in town but definitely comfortable and clean. As a solo female traveller, I felt very safe. Since I was in town for work, the free wi-fi was also a plus. Though not in the heart of town (though less than 2 miles from it), the Harvest Market just around the corner is a great place for coffee and pastries in the morning and sandwiches and (packaged) sushi for lunch. I was very satisfied with my stay and would stay here again.
