“Pretty Awful...”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Room smelled, bathroom floor was dirty and I mean dirty. There was an ice cream container (from some previous guest) in the freezer. One light in main area, no desk lamp. Light switch on the wall didn't work. Walls were sooty and we assumed it was from the malfunctioning wall heater (see photo). Power strip next to microwave and fridge sparked when my daughter tried to plug in her phone charger. Window air conditioner made a funny noise AND are sure it probably needed some freon. Door knob lock was THE only lock. No deadbolt or chain. AVOID this motel!

Room Tip: Avoid Room 16!

We stayed here every year for our family reunion and have never had a problem. The staff was always very helpful and personable. This year was a nightmare. The room smelled disgusting and the bathroom was covered in black mold and we had to use tissue paper for toilet paper!! When we tried to talk to the owner he told us if we didnt like it leave. We had to find another place to stay last minute. Worst motel experience I've ever had!!

I stayed at motel Forrest and the owners were really helpful. When I asked for a heater they said "the heater will be on your way." They were really friendly they were polite they had manners and they always called me "ma'am."

I forgot how nice it was to just walk out your door and be at your car or out front to visit friends, no long hallways, no elevators, just like where we stayed when I was a kid. Rooms aren't huge, but very comfortable beds, extremely clean and wonderful owners. They are very friendly and accomodating. I booked rooms a year in advance for next year because I enjoyed the stay and the location!

Room Tip: No in room coffee pots, so you might have to drive/walk a block if you must have your morning coffee...

Small rooms. Clean. Tv was small and older. No food, so go to Burger King down the street. There just isn't many other choices within 15miles. It worked for 1 night.

We have been staying here for awhile now and always look forward to coming back. Nothing fancy about this motel but it is clean and the owners are always helpful with anything you need. If your not looking for a first class hotel with high costs check out Motel Forrest. Thanks to the owners for making our stay comfortable.
