I chose the Birchwood Motel when traveling with my 4 y/o son because of the reviews about how wonderful the guy who runs the place is. Safety is a huge concern of mine when I travel with just my son. I was more than pleased with Rick, and reviews are not exaggerating when they speak of him. We arrived late, and unannounced. The office was technically closed, but Rick took the time to check us in, and ask me questions about our visit. He gave us appropriate pamphlets for the next day. My son was being a little rambunctious while we were trying to talk, but Rick didn't mind, he understood what a child who had been in a car for hours was like, and spent some time talking to my son too.
The rooms are nothing special, but there's a bed, and a tv, and it's all very clean. I wasn't looking for anything fancy this trip because I knew we weren't going to spend much time at the hotel, but we would be getting up and exploring the island.
In the morning, there was coffee, cereal, and coffee cakes available, but the best part was the foals grazing on the fairgrounds next door! I absolutely love horses, and that was the best breakfast ever.
