“Nice, little motel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

This is a great, little motel not too far out of town and an easy find. The room was clean, they brought us an extra towel right away as there were three of us. There was a mini fridge, nice TV and DVD player. The air conditioner worked great. We had a very peaceful and quiet night of sleep. They even had water bottles set outside in a cooler in front of the office door when we woke up early to go kayaking. Nice touch.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

First off, rating is based on this class of motel. For an older, independent, small motel in an out of the way place, the Circle Motel was very good. I would definitely stay here again if I return to the area.

Beds and bedding were extremely comfortable, pillow top mattress with a nice, heavy comforter. The rooms are older, but clean. Having a small fridge and microwave allowed my daughter and I to eat breakfast in the room with stuff brought from home. Bathrooms are older, but clean. Water pressure is good. Internet worked better than many chain hotels that I have stayed in.

Another plus - with my cellphone carrier there was no service here or in town (the motel is along the highway a mile or so north of town). That makes a vacation a vacation! If you do need cell service, I could pick it up as I got close to Ione, or if you drive a short rough road and hike the last little bit to the top of Washington Rock across the river from Metaline Falls, I could get service there (and a great view!).

This was my second time to stay at the Circle Motel. Myself and my wife love to backpack and after a 2 or 3 day hike, we love to come spend the night in a comfortable bed. The rooms are very clean and spotless, and we love a nice long shower after our hikes. The staff is always helpful with advice about the local area and events in Metaline Falls. There is no question, I will visit again.

We were trying to cross into Canada for a skiing trip only to find that the border crossing closed at midnight (we arrived at 12:07 a.m.). Ever heard of the US/Canada border closing? Me neither. Well, with a blizzard raging our driving speed was about 15mph and we started backtracking south, hoping to find something. We came upon this place and in the spooky blizzardy light it kind of had a Bates Motel/Overlook Hotel feel about it. The office filled floor to ceiling with fishing tackle didn't help shake that vibe. However, the front desk guy was awesome, the rooms were totally clean, quiet and comfortable and it turned out to be a godsend. If you're in the area it's a pretty nice little option and it's very reasonably priced. Can't go too wrong with this.

This place is near Gardner Cave, Crawford State Park and Boundary Dam as well as along the Selkirk Loop (nice driving Loop). The place is a bit old, but excellent service and very, very clean. My requirements for a place center on the cleanliness of a place and this passed with flying colors. The bed also was new and very comfortable!!!

That really says it all. We wanted peace and quiet, and that's exactly what we got. Our room was very clean and very comfortable. The view was fantastic. We saw several deer and a turkey wandering the grounds in the evening. It was a lovely weekend and we're very glad we came.

New owners are friendly and want to make your stay enjoyable. Yes, it is an older motel and does need updating which the owner is in the process of doing. Compared to other options in the area, it is the best.
