“Step back in time and price!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We found this place to be clean and convenient. This place deserves five stars for the class of motel it is. Simple, old fashioned, clean. Pleasant staff. And so affordable. We are happy we chose Lark. We're not fussy. Included a fridge, coffee maker, air conditioner, microwave, and excellent internet! PLUS! THE SHOWER WAS AMAZING.... water very hot, and the water pressure much better than what we have at home. Oh... and we could keep our St Bernard with us!

We had 2 rooms and carpet was terrible in both rooms. They were both stained and filthy! Neither rooms had ANY hot water for showering. The shower was cold beginning to end. The room rate plus tax was $66, but not worth the room. Next time will pay more and stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.

This place is run down and filthy. Even the towels were dirty as you could see where the maids hands had left brown marks on them! Non smoking room with wires hanging from the ceiling where the smoke detector used to be and an ashtray on the nightstand by the bed. Nicer hotels will offer a low rate to fill the rooms. This place charges $55 for a room that shouldn't be more than $20 per night!
Lesson learned!

Room Tip: Stay away from The Lark!

The old story you get what you pay for. Cheap older motel was alright for one night , but you can do better.The rooms were clean but dated. The bed was ok and the pillows were fine.My biggest concer was the water! Must have rusty old pipes or well water--horrible! I made a pot of coffee in the morning with that water--took a taste and spit the swill out. I,m a sea captain for 34 years and this tasted like bildge water lol. You can do better.

Two rooms we tried smelled.. the one we ended up in smells like cat urine... Lights don't work curtains dirty comforter dirty blanket dirty sheets dirty, AC doesn't work. There is no smoke detector in a smoking room. Management is rude and nasty. I would be happier in my car

I stayed at the motel for one night. I can easily see how the negative experiences came about that some of the other users here relate, but I personally had a nice stay. I was treated nicely; the rooms were decently clean. The first room I got had a weird smell in it, like from some industrial cleaning liquid; when I complained I got a new one. So an "okay" rating from me; however looking at some of the other ratings here on Tripadvisor, you may not want to make the place the first priority on your list.

With such a selection of nicer motels and hotels in the area, unless you are really on a overly tight budget, I would stay at another motel. The cast of transient characters which are clearly living at the motel make it a bit "creepy", and unless you are a really seasoned travler, I would recommend staying at another location. While the shower was new, the carpets were REALLY bad. Like a dog (dogs) had peed on them and they never cleaned them, so they were pretty gross. One step up from camping.

Room Tip: If you are brave enough to stay at the Lark, ask for aroom in the middle. Like number 17 or there a...
