“Friendly, Clean and Well Located”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My husband and I were trying to make some last minute reservations in the small town of Joseph over July 4th. I came across this hotel and found good comments regarding its comfortable "feel" so checked it out.
Unfortunately, we were unable to get 2 consecutive nights in the same room but Debby said she would keep an eye on the reservations and if anything came up, she would call...
It did and she did.
We had great time --- It was very quiet- an enjoyable place, exceptionally clean and friendly.
The bed was wonderful!

Room Tip: Our room, 17, was on the end of the complex and so was a bit more private.

We only got to stay 1 night and we agree with most all positive remarks made here. Friendly staff, VERY clean room, reasonable price and very nicely updated. The AC worked great, a separate second vanity was nice. Our Rom was #11 and had a comfy King bed. Great in room coffee, and there was a refrigerator. Microwave available in a separate Ice and Soda room. We would stay here again in a heart beat. The Outlaw for dinner was yummy! the quaint small town was easily walked from this location. As others have said, the only need was a towel bar or hook or two in the bathroom. A single door hook was all to be seen. The grounds are nice and several outdoor tables for relaxing outdoors. A minor point for all its charm.

Room Tip: All rooms are on 1 level and they have about 15 rooms and a cottage.

The Lodge was recommended by friends who live a couple blocks from there. We made the reservation on Wednesday. An injury on Friday prevented the trip. All of sudden we're informed of a 48hr cancellation policy. (That would have been nice to know about up front) The next morning we were told that we'd only be charged for the first night.
In the afternoon the owner called to tell us that we'd be charged for both nights. Why wouldn't he want to take ALL the money? He had worked so hard to call us, after all, and those clean sheets and vacuum that he wouldn't have to touch were weighing so heavily on his mind.
I guess we'll look elsewhere next time.

My husband and I stayed at the Indian Lodge for 2 nights. The office help was very friendly and even helped suggest a great restaurant ( The Outlaw)and things to do and see. Our room was very clean and had nice firm mattress. My husband's shoulders were aching after the drive over and the showers were great with a lot of pressure. Just what he needed. Our room had a lot of cozy accents and plenty of coffee for the morning. The cleaning staff kept our room supplied with everything we needed. We will be back and stay longer. Joseph is a beautiful place.

Room Tip: all rooms are ground level

Finding this quaint motel in this beautiful little town was like finding a wonderful surprise! Everyone there was so nice (and helpful). The room was adorable and the bed was just perfect. This motel is the place to stay when visiting Joseph. We will most certainly be back!

Completely agree with retired_early_51.
Family run, modest sized, quiet, on the edge of downtown section of Main Street, very walkable. Quiet. Good suggestion for dinner at Embers Restaurant. This was exactly what I was looking for.

There are not too many choices for nightly lodging in Joseph and for a small town motel this was just as hoped. The staff was friendly and competent at each interaction, the room was small but clean, obviously dated but nice upgrades such as windows, nice bathroom fixtures, good carpet, paint, etc. Simple lodging. Comfortable bed. We had an AC/heat unit which we did not use. The extra vanity sink was nice but as others have said, it would have been nice if they could have had a few hooks for towels. Overall a fine overnight stay. Rating it a 4 (and not less) just because we really had no complaints for what we expected. The room walls were thin but we had good neighbors.

Room Tip: Due to the thin walls, maybe ask for an end unit. There are only 15 or so rooms here.
