“Perfectly fine overnight stay”
Reviewed 13 November 2008

4 of us stayed for one night while riding the Root River Bike Trail. The "hotel" is what it is - clean and simple, nothing fancy - but a fine place to stop overnight. It's a small place, no staffed front desk, they actually just leave the key in your room door and when you arrive you let yourself in! Hey, it's the small town way I guess! The decor is sort of a simple country style, and the rooms are on the small side, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable so fine in our book. We'd stay again.

Reviewed 30 October 2007

Be very careful if you talk directly to the inkeeper that you clarify the 2 night minimum. We received a very rude and confrontational call from the Innkeeper asking why we had not checked in the night before. He demanded payment and stated that he could have booked the room "10 times". He added the the website states that there is a two night minimum. I had never been on their web site as I booked directly with the Inn and no mention was made of the 2 night minimum.
We decided not to go at all after the phone call. Naturally we were charged for one night and I am quite certain the room was taken that night by someone else.
The innkeeper got his cash, but the local restaurants, theater and shops all missed out.
