I will admit that I'm sort of a hotel snob, and it takes A LOT to get me to even consider staying anywhere with less than 3-1/2 stars, but this place definitely exceeded my expectations. I stayed here with my husband and 2 kids on a Saturday night, after the Monster Truck Nationals at
Lucas Oil Speedway (also a first-class operation and family-friendly environment). The rooms are comfortable and really, REALLY clean. The owners live on the property and are friendly and clearly take pride in their business. The rooms have satellite TV (old-school tube tv's, but there was a nice variety of channels for such a remote area) and FREE WI-FI!!??? In the morning, we took a short walk across the parking lot to eat breakfast at Tadpole's, which is owned by the same family as the Clearlight Inn. We had a delicious classic breakfast, served by friendly people in a smoke-free environment, all for a fraction of what we would normally spend and a chain restaurant. If you are in need of lodging in the Hickory County/Pomme de Terre area, this is where you need to be!
