Ripon is a small town with very few options for lodging. We were visiting this lovely area for the first time for a wedding. I originally booked this hotel due to reviews on Tripadvisor, as they are my go to for travel. While the staff was very helpful in every way possible, it is very apparent that the owner of this hotel is maintaining the property on a very minimal budget, i.e. ice is in ziplock bags in a freezer/refrigerator (really?) Our reservation was no where to be found upon our arrival (15 hour drive), and I booked our room by phone (which I later discovered to be the owner) due to limited internet access for booking. They graciously gave us a 'upgraded' room. That being said, this hotel 'motel' is seriously dated (think 1980's and you are there, seroiusly!)! After 2 of the 4 nights scheduled to stay here, I made alternate arrangements for the rest of our stay. If you don't mind folks cooking on a grill at the front of the entry (we are from the south and this is the first motel I have been a witnessed such), and just want a clean room and bed, which is comparable to say, a Motel 6, then this is the place to stay. Isn't it irionic, and they make fun of people from the south...
