“Just OK”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

This hotel is just an OK place to stay. Nothing fancy and not the best run. Room was fairly clean and in good shape. The room didn.t smell fresh but wasn't musty either just OK. The bed wasn't very comfortable and didn't sleep all that well. The person who checked us in was lackadaisical to say the least. Didn't appear to be to enthused about his work. Acted like he had better places to be. Didn't bother with breakfast as there was a café right next door so had breakfast there. We were playing golf at a course just south of town first thing in the morning or we wouldn't have stayed her. Would probably not stay here again.

As the subject said, this is a small town with little to choose from when it comes to motels. I believe this is the only one in Motley that has a website. Perhaps some of the mom and pop motels should take a lesson from this place. It's best to guarantee yourself a room, knowing it will be there for you when you arrive. With that said, my review will be pretty basic.

My wife and I needed a place to stay overnight while visiting my wife's son and his family at their small cabin. I phoned in the reservation the day before. We arrived to put our bags in the room, and the first thing my wife noticed was the mildewy odor. Not overpowering, but noticeable. Strike one. Later that evening, when we came back to sleep there, the bed was OK, but they had a vinyl mattress cover on the king bed mattress, and, therefore, every time you moved in bed it would sound like a clown making balloon animals. Mildly annoying. Strike 2. The only other thing that annoyed me, and caused me to get a broken night's sleep is the in-wall heater/AC. It would not allow the fan to be put on constantly. I like the constant hum to keep out other noises, and to just make for consistent noise during the night. The thermostatically-controlled fan would kick on periodically throughout the night, waking me up almost every time it did so. Oh well. I guess I slept semi-OK.

I do have to say, this is probably the best you'll get in Motley, and it serves its purpose as a place to sleep. I wouldn't recommend more than one night though,

Upon arrival, at eleven, all the lobby lights were turned down low, the attendant was sleeping somewhere. He checked us in quickly. Our room was musty smelling. The beds are like rocks. Only two super mushy pillows per bed. The bathroom is tiny and the toilets have no lids.making it very hadr to dress and undress as there is no where to put anything. Breakfast is pretty meager, no fruit or yogurt. White bread for toast, waffles, cereal, muffins, juice,coffee. But I guess you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Not by the ice machines.

Stayed here for one night while golfing with another couple. Staff member was very friendly when we checked in. One room was ready for us (even though we were early) and the other room was available after lunch. One of the two rooms smelled smokey. Our room had lots of ants on the bathroom floor and it appeared that they were coming from under the shower as the seal was broken between the shower and floor. There were numerous holes in the walls where something was previously attached and when taken off, the holes were not covered or repaired. While it did not affect our stay, it showed that not a lot of maintenance is performed. By-passed the morning breakfast as the selections appeared quite slim and did not notice any fresh fruit. Not sure what else is available in Motley but will check if we go back.

This motel is clean, room was very comfortable, and bed was comfortable. Very nice motel to stay at with a good restaurant right next door. Price was reasonable too. We will plan to stay here next time through.

Reserved a king bed for 2 nights from their very own website. Upon arrival, the guy behind the counter says "I have you in a double queen for 1 night". When I correct him he says "Oh, when you book a room through our website, it doesn't update our computers here, we don't have any kings available now". The TV in our room was an old 15 inch tube type with 2 remote controls. One with a sticker on it that said "Zenith remote is just to turn TV on or off". The next day, no maid service. When I went to the front desk and asked why, "I don't know", and he obviously didn't care. From now on, when visiting family in the area, we will gladly drive the extra 20 miles to Brainerd to find a decent room at hotel that cares about their guests.

Stayed here in December 2012 and had a bad experience with no housekeeping (desk person said the cleaning staff was 'off' for the Xmas holiday). Against our better judgement, came back again June 14-16 for family graduation. Due to the no housekeeping in December, Saturday morning around 10am I called the front desk and asked if they had housekeeping services working today as we wanted our room serviced. Desk person who answered said yes housekeeping was working and we would have the room cleaned. We left at 10:30am and even saw the housekeeper in the hallway by the room next to ours. Fingers crossed. Nope. Came back to room at 10:30 pm and everything was as we left it. Sink in room was leaking so badly that water was running off counter onto carpet so all towels in room were wet. Hubby went to desk to get more towels and ask about lack of housekeeping, unprofessional desk person did not care at all, didn't even make fake, token offer to look into it. Even tho it's a pain to drive 30-40 minutes away from family, next time we will drive to Brainerd to stay in a national brand hotel with professional staff who are accountable for their actions.

Room Tip: Sleep in your car or keep driving
