“Best value in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

Having read some reviews I decided to try it for myself. The Historic Hotel was built in 1923 but amazingly, everything is in top knotch shape and works! Rooms were comfortable and clean. Most rooms have private bath but be aware that there are a few that share a bath so be sure to specify when registering. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Hot coffee on at all hours! The hotel lobby makes on feel as if he/she is at home. The history of the hotel is unbelievable. I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to reserve a room away from the stairway as some folks are not considerate when stomping up or d...

I was really impressed with this hotel, it was clean, very comfortable and welcoming. I would stay here again in an instant and dont hesitate recommeding it at all, great value for money. We were recommended by the hotel staff to go to "Seasons" for dinner and I would also recommend Seasons as it was a lovely meal with great service.

We stayed in the "John Wayne" room during our recent stay. Spacious, modern and clean. Whirlpool tub is so nice. First night we left the air conditioner running due to hot weather. That was a mistake, the only setting is on or off and when it is on the unit makes a very loud roaring noise. After a few hours of no sleep we finally got up, turned it off and opened the window. Not the most restful night for us. We were gone most of the next day only to come back and not have any maid service. That was a little disappointing.

Primary recommendation to the owners/managers, train your front desk staff to be courteous and friendly. They did not look interested in their work and had to be coaxed into looking up, smiling or greeting guests.

Overall the stay was pleasant, priced accordingly and I would definitely recommend the Dow Villa Motel.
