Dogwood Motel
Reviewed 18 August 2011

I would say the grounds of this establishment are 5 star. They have a koi pond, lovely flowers and plants, a gazebo, nice picnic facilities and are right across the highway from a beautiful river. The cabins are very outdated, dirty with the antiquated TV sets chained to the wall. I would rate them about a 1 star. However, the location is superb. We weren't fishermen, so maybe they wouldn't care, what they sleep in.

Motel room had unreliable heating all night. When motel mgr. came to inspect, he told us to use a butter knife to reset breaker inside heater housing, which only worked once. And in the morning we saw that doing so could've electrically shocked us, as there were exposed wires.

When we complained in morning and asked for partial refund, motel mgr. told us he'd consider doing so if we cleaned our room instead of his housekeeping staff. Flabbergasted, we asked why, and were told "because our dogs had been on the bed". This after paying a pet deposit, and going without heat for the night.

Oh, and the koi pond motel mgr. recommends seeing? Be careful, as what he doesn't tell you about are the motion activated sprinklers designed to scare deer, and the inadvertant soaking you'll get.

So, as I said, wouldn't recommend ...

Stopped here after an amazing day on the scenic drive and at crater lake. Stayed one night. The motel is not luxury digs-- it is old and spartan, but a good value. great for kids-- the innkeeper let us wander around his lovely garden and feed the koi in the pond. We are on our way to expensive digs on the coast and really appreciated the value.
