We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2011. One of the worst motels I have ever stayed in, and I am not a picky person at all. I usually stay at Motel 6/Comfort Inn type places to give you an idea what I am used to. When we saw our room we were tempted to check right back out and find somewhere else to stay, but we didn't want to risk not finding another available room as it was a busy weekend. We opened the door and were hit with the smell of stale air and very strong old perfume. We cracked open the only tiny window in the room, which unfortunately looked directly into the parking lot so there was very little privacy if we wanted to keep it open (which we did - it stunk!!) There was a small fan in the room that we had going the whole time to try and get some air flowing through, but it did little to help. My boyfriend and I have never had problems with asthma or allergies, but we both found that our lungs were really bothering us each morning.
The room itself was very run down, with stained carpets and shady looking blankets (I found hairs and stains on the blankets, which was disgusting). The shower itself was tiny, the shower curtain was mildewy, and the towels were very thin. The "continental breakfast" is just muffins cut in half, cold English muffins, and coffee.
The only positive thing about this motel is the view from the outside sitting area. It is really beautiful. If the owners took more care cleaning/updating their rooms this could be a great place, but as it is now I will never stay there again.
