“Not quite what we were looking for.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

True that the woman at the desk was friendly and helpful, the price for a motel room was $50 and the room looked clean, but, we just couldn't get past the tear in the curtain and the beat up outer door or the general rundown look of the property, so we decided to look elsewhere.

This is an inexpensive motel. Few frills-- but, I liked it. It was clean. The room itself was actually quite large. It had two beds, TV, desk, chair, refrigerator, microwave, fan, iron.

There is no air conditioning but this is the UP. I had the back open when I went to bed but I had to close later as it cooled off. The TV had a good selection of channels. There is free WiFi but it is a little slow.

There was a guest in the room beside mine but I never heard them.

The owners were very friendly. The motel seemed to attract a lot of bicyclists and I can see why. It served their needs well.

Room Tip: I had room 11. It was at the end and a good choice.

Stayed at the Hillcrest Motel again this year. The outside looks very run down, and the rooms have dark paneling, but I will tell you, it is the cleanest motel I have very stayed in, including some higher priced places. The owners and wonderful, friendly and knowledgable about the area. Well worth the 50.00 a night. Peaceful, and a little out of town so nice and quiet. WIll be staying there again.

Room Tip: The owner also give you a free bag of ice for your cooler if needed. All rooms are equipped with sma...

We went for a drive to look at all the fall colors and had a coupon for Hillcrest. It is a cozy motel. Nothing fancy, but we only went to sleep so we didn't need anything fancy. The price was very reasonable. The walls are pretty thin and you could hear things in the next room, but it still was worth the money and it is a little out of town, peaceful and quiet. They do have 4 new cabins that look really nice, but we didn't stay there...

Clean, cute cabin. Comfy beds. Roomy. Fully functional kitchen with pans, plates, cups etc. there was an issue with the well, but they provided gallons of drinking water and gave us a $25 discount which was really nice. It was a great price to begin with too.
