“Cute room but lacks comfortable bed and a tub that doesn't drain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

The room we were in had a Fireplace and it was very cute! Everything was clean other than the remote that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. I had to clean it before wanting to touch it. The AC unit is right next to the bed and was very loud. It also couldn't cool the room to the temp that we wanted (72 Deg.) The lowest we got it was 77 F which was too hot for us to sleep comfortably. Bed was pretty hard. The tub doesn't drain well at all. It takes about an hour +. When mentioning that to Patty, all she said was that "yes, that tub does not drain". Ok... That really bothered me as others people hair came back up and I was disgusted to take a shower.
Other than that, the room was cute, clean and quiet, other than when the AC ran. But we will not be back to stay there again. I rather go to a hotel next time and know I can get some quality sleep and a tub that drains well.

Room Tip: Take the rooms below in the summer. Maybe they are not as warm as the top room we had and hopefully...

Quiet place, no hassles, easy access to 90. Staff doesn't bother you. Everything provided to keep your bike clean. Bar/food next door but not too close. Grill outside with stores close by. Will go back. Stayed there Aug 2012.

Patty was super nice and helpful! We enjoyed our stay and slept great! It was convenient to town and to the ride through the canyon. It was nice to have a grill to cook on and relax and enjoy the evening. I hope that we are able to stay here again!

Patty has a really nice little motel. It is clean, comfortable on a scenic drive so lots of motorcycles to see. There is a Bar & Grill two doors down (good drinks, ok food) It is away from the noise of the rally but as close as any for riding anywhere. I would stay here again for sure!

The motel is better than a camping cabin at a State Park but not as good as a Super 8. It had a shower, sink, toilet, tv, and small refrigerator which a camping cabin does not. It needed to have soap, shampoo, and rolls of toilet paper provided!. The room also needed to have a desk chair and more electrical outlets.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with the "guys" this motel will probably be okay. However, if the wif...

TERRIBLE experience! While the room seemed quaint and cute when we first got there, the ac window unit was so loud that we couldn't even hear the tv. The place advertised ad having free wifi but we were given no password and after several attempts to contact the owner, I still had not password and no ability to turn in my school work. Then the proverbial poop hit the fan. We began seeing bugs everywhere. Flying, crawling, we kept smashing them but it seemed like for every one we killed three more took its place. After killing over a dozen and seeing large spiders crawling out of the woodwork we decided we would not be able to sleep there with all of the bugs. I left another message for the owner letting her know the issue. I called her again in the morning to discuss things with her but she had not gotten any of my messages. I explained again and when I mentioned bugs she screamed NO! And ended the conversation. She would not take any further calls from my number so I had my travel companion call. Se did the same to him she. He mentioned bugs. This lady is crazy and I would never stay in her facility again.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else
