“A Great Time!”
Reviewed 18 October 2009

My wife and I stayed at the Buckhorn for a week in June. We have never been to the area before and were pleasantly surprised at the warm, comforting atmosphere Cathy and Ameal provided. Our room was very clean, the towels were fresh and the bed was comfortable. I was grateful for the store located in the main office. My wife and I were able to purchase lovely gifts for our family back home and were able to enjoy a piping hot coffee. Finally- the internet access in our room was a way I could email family back home pictures and stories about our great vacation. Thanks again Buckhorn Motel for making our stay memorable. We will definitely be back every summer!!!!

Room #2: Filthy room, we were afraid to walk barefoot inside - the floor looked nasty!!
Bed pillows smelled like someone else's hair.
Beds squeaked and groaned. Or was it the floor? Both!
Are spiders crawling in the bed considered an amenity?
Washroom: Toilet rocked when we sat on it; was about to fall through the floor, which was dry rotted
Television selection of channels: ONE: what ever channel Ameal was watching. He boasted that he has 175 channels from which to choose. (To their credit, they do have a large video library from which you can choose)
This place needs a dramatic facelift. Should be condemned.
They have an incredible (no fooling) web site. It looked like it was going to be really nice. We were looking forward to staying. The room online "looked" exactly like what we found, but looks and being there are 2 different things! We feel like suckers.
The poor suffering wife looked definitely dumbfounded when we left at 6am!
