My wife and I stayed here the weekend of 06/13-16/2014. The check in was relatively easy. A new employee was being trained on the check-in process and took a little extra time. We did not mind since everyone with a job needs to learn to do it right.
There was ample parking especially on the river side. The only draw back to this was the covered parking area. I was littered with old Jacuzzis and other building materials. This somewhat gave us the impression that they don't know what to do with their old items. There was an elevator that goes from the parking area to all floors.
The room was very musty. we went to the nearby Walgreen's and got a can of Febreze that seemed to help. While putting our clothes in the dresser we discovered discarded candy wrappers in the top drawer and the sales section of a week old newspaper on the shelf above the closet. I guess Housekeeping doesn't clean these areas often. Our first morning there the hair dryer blew up and we called for a new one. A staff member brought it within 5 minutes or so but stayed in the hall, handed it to me, smiled and walked away. Made us feel like we were back home; do it yourself!
The beds were comfortable and the private balcony on the river was nice. It was very peaceful on the balcony despite having a congested roadway right beside the motel. The price of the stay, even on a weekend, was very reasonable. I would say that we may think about staying here again in the future. We plan to return in October but already have reservations at another location on the river. We'll see...
